Tutto Italia Ristorante Review

From Mexico to Canada, World Showcase at EPCOT is home to many wonderful restaurants. It can be difficult to choose a restaurant when there are so many great options! One pavilion that never disappoints with their restaurants is Italy. 

On a recent visit to Walt Disney World, my family and I dined at Tutto Italia Ristorante. It had been awhile since we'd dined here so I was looking forward to revisiting this restaurant. 

Located in the Italy pavilion, Tutto Italia brings Old World ambience and serves traditional Italian favorites. We were seated in the dining room but there's also an outdoor patio with seating. The dining room is filled with murals of ancient Rome, rich colors and sparkling chandeliers.

Our table was a half booth in the back corner of the restaurant and it was absolutely perfect because my youngest was fast asleep when we arrived at the restaurant. We were able to get him out of his stroller and place him on the booth without him waking up. He stayed there and continued to sleep for our entire meal! The restaurant wasn't that quiet either! The little guy was just so tuckered out from a fun-filled day at the parks that he slept through dinner.
Comfy booths, perfect for naps!
The menu, created by award-winning chef and California restaurateur Joachim Splichal, includes authentic Italian dishes. We started our meal with some appetizers and bread. We ordered the "Fior di Latte" Caprese and Calamari Fritti. Both appetizers were delicious. 
Bread

Red and yellow grape tomato salad, balsamic emulsion, extra virgin olive oil
Calamari Fritti
served with Marinara Piccante
We each ordered something different for our entrees and there was a lot of sharing around the table. We ordered the Parmigiana, Spaghetti, Gnocchi Sorrentina, and Lasagne alla Bolognese. My oldest son who stayed awake for the meal ordered the cheese pizza from the kids menu. Everyone loved their meal! The portions were quite large and even after sharing, we had some leftovers. 
Parmigiana
Breaded chicken breast, mozzarella, parmesan, fresh spaghetti and tomato sauce
Spaghetti
Beef and pork meatballs, pomodoro sauce
Gnocchi Sorrentina
Potato dumplings, roasted tomatoes, pomodoro sauce, burrata cheese
Lasagne alla Bolognese
Traditional preparation from Emilia-Romagna with beef and ragù, béchamel, parmesan
Kids Cheese Pizza
I'm sad to report that we were too full to try any of the desserts. I guess that shows just how much we enjoyed our appetizers and entrees! If you love Italian food, or just love good food, then I would add Tutto Italia Ristorante to your list of must-dine restaurants at EPCOT. It's a solid choice for a wonderful meal. 

Tutto Italia is available for lunch and dinner. Advance reservations are highly recommended and can be made 60 days in advance. Make sure you let your Kingdom Konsultant agent know if you'd like to make a reservation at Tutto Italia for your next Walt Disney World vacation.

Universal's Volcano Bay Private Cabana Review

On a recent training in Universal Orlando Resort, agents Maci, Ashley, Aubrey and Yaritza and I rented a private cabana for the day at Universal's Volcano Bay. There are multiple locations around the park along with the option to have an upper or lower level, all of which reflect in various pricing. Agent Ashley received an email the day before informing her of where to check-in the next morning. While we were personally escorted to the cabana shortly after check in, the line at the check in location is the same as those getting towels, meaning it was not short. As expressed by an additional guest checking into a different cabana, we would have greatly appreciated a separate line, since this caused our group about a half hour wait. We're all adults and made great use of our time getting some fun pictures before the park was filled with guests, but this is important to be aware of if you are traveling with children.  We had an upper level Cabana which came with a splendid view!

The Villas at the Disneyland Hotel Review

I love staying at the Disneyland Hotel so when I got the opportunity to stay at the new Villas at the Disneyland Hotel during opening weekend, I couldn’t pass it up. Because it was opening weekend, we were greeted in the entrance way of the lobby with balloons and many photo opportunities. When we arrived, there was a mural of the Haunted Mansion. I love how the seats in the main lobby were designed like the teacups in the parks. You can check in using the Disneyland app, drop your bags with bell services and head into the parks or use the amenities why you wait until your room is ready. When your room is ready, the resort will send you a text and you can use the Disneyland app on your mobile device to unlock the room. We dropped off our bags and went straight to the parks. We received a text around 1PM that our room was ready. In the new Discovery Tower (the Villas), you'll find that the lobby is very spacious with many places to sit while you read or wait for your family. Th

Chronos Club Review at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

I recently stayed at the Chronos Club at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. I've been a fan of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort since my first visit as it reminds me of my hometown, San Antonio. I've stayed in rooms ranging from preferred, Casita Suite, Tower King, and now Club Level access. The Chronos Club is located on the 15th floor of the Gran Destino Tower and can only be accessed with a key card or MagicBand to a corresponding Club Level reservation. I've previously stayed Club Level at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and Disney's Grand Californian Resort. These are all considered Deluxe Resorts. Something that makes the Chronos Club stand out is that it is located in what Disney considers a Moderate Resort. I was really excited to check out the difference in experience, since there can be a notable difference in price tag for Moderate vs. Deluxe Res
