Vivoli Gelateria Now Open at Downtown Disney

Share This!

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.

    I am probably more excited about visiting Vivoli Gelateria on my upcoming trip than I am about anything else!

    Is there anywhere on that has info on Downtown Disney? We plan on hanging there after our Animal Kingdom experience. It’s been about 9 years since we’ve been to Disney, prior we’d visited every year for 14 years. This is a new experience with our grown children and their families. Also, my wife and I are only 50 and have made “separate” times just for us. THIS would be one of those times 🙂
