Walt Disney World Plans Another New Restaurant for Disney Springs

We have learned more exciting news about additions to Disney Springs.  The entire area has been completely re-themed, updated and expanded over the last couple of years and it looks like Disney isn’t done yet with making it one of the most expansive shopping and dining locations in the area.  We already have The Edison, Wine Bar George and Terralina Crafted Italian under construction as new locations still to open in the area, but now we have learned that another new restaurant is planned for Disney Springs. There are so many amazing restaurant and dining options in the area, that it is definitely getting impossible to experience them all in a single vacation.  This new restaurant is currently known as Maria & Enzo’s. The restaurant will be an Italian restaurant that will have more of a speakeasy feel to it, just like what is planned for The Edison.  The restaurant is also expected to be a table service location as well as have a more casual, quick dining option, possibly similar to quick service selections.


The new restaurant will be operated by the Patina Restaurant Group.  This same company operates several other popular restaurant locations throughout Walt Disney World.  These restaurants include Via Napoli and Tutto Italia in Epcot and Morimoto Asia and The Edison in Disney Springs.

Terralina Crafted Italian, taking the place of Portobello, is another new Italian location slated to open at Disney Springs later this fall.  With Terralina and Maria & Enzo’s, there will be more than one Italian option in Disney Springs.  Maria & Enzo’s is expected likely open in early 2018 and will be located in The Landing section of Disney Springs next to The Edison.

Who can’t wait to try out the new flavors at Mario & Enzo’s?



About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
