Gelateria Toscana construction - March 15 2021
Posted: Thursday March 18, 2021 11:57am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Construction is continuing on La Gelateria at EPCOT's Italy pavilion, with more paint finish detail being added to the exterior.

The pre-fabricated building was brought onto the site in two sections, earlier in the year.

Still no word yet from the pavilion's dining participant Patina, or Disney, on when La Gelateria will open and what we can expect from its menu line-up.

The new eatery is located on the far right side of the Italy pavilion on previously unused space.

That's another good one I'll add to my list. I've also got "They are being forced to eat Gelatos at gunpoint".

Maybe... Florida is hot?

Every time I see the line for this place it is huge. So it's either good or there are a lot of people craving something new.

Luca is different but beautiful! Worth part of a trip to Italy.

I know it's naïve, but I'm hoping that Luca is so popular and well received that they'd fast track a ride based on that movie in this location. The images of the movie make it feel like it would be a reasonable fit for WS (as far as IPs go, which we know is the mandate)

Don't be fooled. This isn't the final form of the gelato stand. Once this avatar is defeated, the Final Kiosk will appear!!

It could be even better if they decided to move the Italy Festival Booth over there to free up the waterfront.

I know. But it was there for years and years. It died so the gelateria can live.

why RIP? now you have a larger gelato place with more food options on the other side

Let this forever be remembered as the day that a piece of clutter was removed from the World showcase Promenade. I’m 1000% surprised they didn’t turn it into a pin shop/wine kiosk/anything booth.

Yeah some walls down in Epcot. I know it is not huge but every wall counts. Now if we could just get some walls down in the front of the park.
