Disney Springs Has 3 New Restaurants in the Works

Disney Springs is adding to its menu of Italian eateries.

Patina Restaurant Group, owners of Morimoto Asia, announced that they will open Enzo’s Hideaway and Pizza Ponte, early next year.

The group is also opening the traditional Italian trattoria, Maria & Enzo’s in the same complex.

The prohibition theme extends to Maria and Enzo’s, connecting to the restaurant through the building’s rum-running tunnels. Expect foods like Bucatini alla Carbonara, a hollow spaghetti with creamy egg dish with pancetta sauce and Tonnarelli Cacio e Pepe, square-cut spaghetti with pecorino and black pepper.

Pizza Ponte will offer savory and sweet options from Sicilian-style pizza by the slice, Triangolo (stuffed pizza bread) and Bomboloni Italian doughnuts, to Sfoglia di Riso rice cream pastry and a classic Tiramisu.

The new restaurants also come with the group’s development of The Edison, a “Industrial Gothic” style bar and restaurant expected to open by the end of 2017.

Early Morning at the Theme Parks

Here’s a great guide from the Sentinel about what’s going on early at the parks…

Magic Kingdom Welcome Show…a cast member welcomes guests from the train platform. Couples up there sing and dance. Tunes include “Good Morning,” “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” and “Casey Jr.” from “Dumbo.”

Mickey and company arrive on the train and instant mass photo opp begins.

The characters disembark for a bit of waving and merriment and a 10-9-8 countdown for the park opening.

SeaWorld opens with the national anthem through the park’s P.A. system about 15 minutes before the people work their ways through the turnstiles.

Once the park is opening, the soundtrack switches to “Beneath the Blue,” a soaring non-national anthem written for SeaWorld’s 50th anniversary.

Universal Orlando’s…one park opens early each day for guests staying in on-property hotels. It alternates between Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios.

Most Universal early birds take advantage of alone time at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Regular visitors might opt for Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit at the Studios or the Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man or Pteradon Flyers at IOA. That could all change again this summer when the Incredible Hulk coaster reopens and when Skull Island: Reign of Kong makes its debut.

Enjoy!

==================

With over 20,000 investment homes to choose from, British Homes Group can provide a fully managed leaseback agreement and bonus access to an exclusive rental partnership with Virgin Holidays. The partnership can assist and support investors in finding reliable tenants in order to make the most of the property.
