Are you looking for authentic Italian gelato on your next Walt Disney World vacation? Then you need to head to Downtown Disney to experience Vivoli Gelateria, a brand new gelato location now found in The Landing section.
Vivoli Gelateria was founded in Florence, Italy, and the Downtown Disney location is only its second ever full-service shop.
The quick-service place showcases gelato making, an art that has been perfected by three generations of family. This really is a family run business, as it was founded in 1932 by Raphael Vivoli and his two brothers. Vivoli Gelateria started out as a dairy. It is now run by Raphael’s granddaughter, Silvana.
In addition to gelato (which is available in more than a dozen flavors from fresh, seasonal ingredients), guests are also able to enjoy sorbet, milkshakes, panini sandwiches, baked goods, and espresso beverages.
Vivoli is located next to Raglan Road across from The BOATHOUSE, and it is open Sunday through Thursday from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 p.m.
