Happy National Pizza Day- Fun Fact Friday

Did you know that every hour at Disney world, they are cranking out 1200 pizzas an hour… at several locations!?!?  That’s a lot of dough!  The quick service restaurants use a machine called the “pizzamatic” and can be found at Pizzerizzo (Hollywood Studios) and Pizzafari (Animal Kingdom).

Check out this video of the pizzamatic in action (From the show Unwrapped on the Food Network)-

If pizza is one of your favorites no worries, you can find TONS of places to get a slice of your favorite pie at Walt Disney World!

Check out Trattoria Al Forno at Disney’s Boardwalk, Pinocchio Village Haus at Magic Kingdom, Pizzafari at Animal Kingdom, Any of the Wolfgang Puck restaurants at Disney Springs, Pizzerizzo at Hollywood Studios, Catalina Eddie’s at Hollywood Studios, Tony’s Town Square at Magic Kingdom, Splitsville at Disney Springs, Mama Melrose’s at Hollywood studios, and of course- my all time favorite- Via Napoli at Epcot!

Our pizza from Via Napoli!!!!!

If none of these options sound like the type of pizza you’re in luck.  Within a reasonable drive from Disney World Property you can hit up Giordano’s Pizza (THEY ALSO DELIVER TO DISNEY RESORT HOTELS)!  They’re a Chicago based pizza chain with STUFFED pizza!  It’s one of our all time favorite pizza places.  They just added a location 2 hours south of our home and we totally drove 2 hours for pizza.  If you are a pizza lover it’s definitely worth checking out!

Tuesday’s Tip- Celebration Buttons

Did you know that if it’s your first time to Disney, your birthday, your anniversary, a family reunion, just married, just engaged, or a general celebration you can request a celebration button?  They are free of charge, and sometimes come with perks!  My husband and I usually plan our trips around our Anniversary in June and we probably have at least 6 “Happy Anniversary” buttons laying around the house.  We even were given a free dessert for our anniversary at a restaurant on the boardwalk!

This isn’t to say that you will get something special 100% of the time while wearing a button, but cast members genuinely go out of their way to make your celebration special.  They will be sure to tell you happy birthday, or ask what your special celebration is!

Tuesday’s Tip- Disney’s Boardwalk

If you’re looking for something to do at Disney on a non-park day be sure to check out Disney’s Boardwalk area.  The Boardwalk Inn is one of Disney’s Deluxe hotels, however there is an entire shopping and dining area themed to the hotel area.  You’ll feel like you’ve taken a trip back to the good old days at the Atlantic City Boardwalk.  A relaxing morning by the pool and then shopping and dining at the boardwalk sound like the perfect non-park Disney experience to me 🙂

Entertainment includes-  Atlantic Dance Hall, Jelly Rolls (piano bar), and live street entertainers

Dining includes- Big River Grille and Brewing Works, Boardwalk Bakery, ESPN Club, Flying Fish Cafe, Trattoria al Forno

Recreation includes- Boardwalk Arcades and Surrey bike rentals
