    Last time I was there, my wife and I noticed a window in Italy serving pizza, since we already had a reason at teppen edo, we decided we would go back and try it, but it wasn't open the next 2 times we tried. Does anyone know the schedule? Going 4/20-4/25 if that helps

    Thanks!

    I believe it is permanently gone. While it seemed to be part of Via Napoli, it did not serve the VN pizza...just the (IMO) substandard Disney pizza found in other locations. This caused a lot of confusion and they closed it. I do not think they have plans to re-open it.

    Really? It looked very good and different than most other "Disney" pizza which I do not like

    Ok, new question. Any recommendations for good pizza? Probably Saturday night since we won't get to hotel (AKL) till about. 7pm

    It's not permanently gone apparently. It was open at the end of December. It's gone again now, it wasn't there two weeks ago.

    Just remember that when it is open, you're not getting Via Napoli's pizza.

    This is what I thought too...until one of the dissers swore up and down that it WAS in fact Via pizza that she got when she ordered from the window during the summer. :confused3 She even reamed me out for it! Lol. She said it was amazing. So maybe it was? Cause we all know Disney pizza is not amazing. :lmao:

    No, it's not. Via Napoli does not serve thick crust Sicilian-style pizza.

    The window is still there but from my understanding is only used during high traffic times so late December and NYE. Outside of that I never saw it in use on a normal day.

    That was my argument too! Clearly she is mistaken.

    Thanks everyone! I guess we'll either hit up DTD or order in depending on how we feel when we get there :)

    I must be the only one who really enjoyed the pizza from the window. Anyway the last trip I was there it was one one day and closed the next. I asked one of the workers and they said it was only open on fridays and saturdays.

    dont know if that is actually true, but thats what I was told.

    We had pizza there during our trip March 25-31. Twice actually! I liked it. It was not VN pizza. It was much thicker and cut into squares. More like a sicilian slice. But I think they used the same sauce and pepperoni. It was definately not Pizza planet type pizza which I hate. I think it is open during really busy times. So hopefully we never see it open again. LOL! But I would like to eat it again. Just not deal with the crowds!!

    Be thankful you missed it. The pizza slices were expensive, huge and disgusting.
