PHOTOS - A look at Vivoli Gelateria as it nears opening at Disney Springs

Jun 08, 2015 in "Vivoli Gelateria"

Posted: Monday June 8, 2015 9:52am EDT by WDWMAGIC Staff

Vivoli Gelateria, a family-run gelato shop from Florence Italy, is the next new location to open in The Landing district of Disney Springs.

Located just across from The BOATHOUSE in the new area of The Landing, Vivoli Gelateria promises to bring a sweet taste of Italy to Central Florida.

Founded in 1932, Vivoli Gelateria has a deep history of producing high quality gelato, and granddaughter of the original founders, Silvana Vivoli is still involved with the business.

The store opens soon, but the list of flavors is already on display outside, which you can see in the photo below. Apparently, the rice pudding flavor is a favorite of the owner.

Along with the range of gelato, Vivoli Gelateria will also serve Italian panini, biscotti, espresso and tarts.

We'll have a full review when Vivoli Gelateria opens in the coming weeks.

I saw that too. My guess is that something was needed to draw attention to the place. Can't imagine how many people walk past and not even notice that it's there. The tea place is the same. Easy to overlook and their sign is mostly covered by palm tree fronds.

Walked by here the other day and they added some awful silver tables with bright orange chairs. It looked like something they got from future world and looked out of place.

Actually we promised (bribed) our kids with the promise of gelato every day, and twice some days. 5 days now in Florence and 7 different gelaterias. Really it is all good. But some is better. Also, a small gelato at Vivoli costs 2.5 euros, a little less than $3 which includes all taxes.

Thanks for reporting - I've never been to Italy. Are you on a Gelato tasting tour? :) I would hope to taste Alfa Romeo and Ferrari!

Only bumping because we are in Florence and went to Vivoli today. Delicious. That said they are not my favorite gelato in Florence. And we've now tried a few. Anxious to taste when we go to Disney next.

We tried the "Riso" (Rice) flavour just because it sounded odd, and it really was pretty great! Later online I read an interview with the owners in Florence and they said it was their most popular flavour there.

If you like hazelnuts, I've read that the Hazelnut gelato is very good.

Anybody figure out a hidden gem of a flavor yet?

Matt & I stopped in at the Vivoli Gelateria Saturday after my art signing, just for the little sandwiches. We ordered one each of the artichoke/fontina and the tomato/basil/mozzarella and were very pleased with both! Definitely snack-sized sandwiches (as opposed to meal sized) - about the size of a Hawaiian Sweet Roll, but a very good ciabatta-type dough. Very pleased with them. I often think that there is a dearth of snack-sized vegetarian savoury quick service options so we were both excited to see these! Will definitely be going back, and to try some of the actual gelato too =)

I initially thought the gelato prices were hig, but they seem comparable with Hagen Dazs really and the gelato would be far better quality.

Let us know what you think.

Nice! Happy to see a couple vegetarian sandwiches too, gonna go grab one!

I know this will be one of the first places that my wife will want to go on our next rip to Walt Disney World.
