Tutto Italia Ristorante at Epcot celebrates Carnival of Venice

The Carnevale di Venezia (Carnival of Venice) has arrived at the Tutto Italia Ristorante, located in the Italy pavilion at Epcot! During the Carnival, a specially priced dining menu will be available to guests February 23 to March 4

Venice’s Carnival began in the 11th century, and the wearing of masks and costumes was well established by the early 1400′s. The practice of wearing masks for disguise reached its peak in the 18th century when Venetians of different social classes used Carnevale as an excuse to mix and mingle incognito.

Masks will also be a part of the Tutto Italia celebration – Guests will have the opportunity to see a special mask display inside the restaurant and the waiters will be wearing their own. Feel free to bring your own too, or select a mask to purchase on location!

A special lunch and dinner menu will be available during the celebration. Guests can choose one of two pre-selected appetizers, entrees and desserts. A special performance by “Viva Venezia” will occur each evening inside the restaurant. The musical trio, known as the “strolling musicians,” will serenade Guests with traditional Venetian music.

  • Lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. – $19 per person, plus tax and gratuity
  • Dinner from 4:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. – $28 per person, plus tax and gratuity

Additionally, Tables in Wonderland (formerly the Disney Dining Expeirence) members will benefit with their 20% discount on food and beverage. No substitutions on specialty menu offerings will be allowed, and reservations are highly recommended. Guests may call (407) WDW-DINE (939-3463).
