Pizza Making Parties at Naples Ristorante in DownTown Disney

Naples Pizza Ristorante in Downtown Disneylast weekend my family was invited to a Pizza Making Party at Naples Ristorante e Pizzaria. it’s one of the fabulous Downtown Disney restaurants here in Orange County at Disneyland Resort. we were all very excited to attend because, besides loving pizza, we were going to get to make them ourselves. the boys have been obsessed with Master Chef Jr. and now have been begging for cooking lessons. so a pizza making party was right up their alley. i might’ve been just as excited as the boys!

Naples Ristorante e Pizzaria is an elegant, upscale, two-story Italian eatery and pizzaria, yet it’s casual enough to enjoy lunch or dinner every day of the week. it has the charm of Italy but the magical feel of Disney, with charming decor and a vibrant atmosphere. the first floor is a classic Italian pizzeria that features an open kitchen where you can actually watch the chefs assemble your pizza, there is a two-story glass enclosed wine cellar, and a spacious outdoor patio. the second floor features gorgeous views of the Downtown Disney promenade and our balcony offers an unexpected touch of elegance with its market lighting and a water fountain. Naples Ristaurante Mosaic EntranceNaples in Down Town DisneyNaples Ristorante PlatesNaples Ristorante Stone tile

Naples Ristorante e Pizzaria Hand-On Pizza Making Parties are private events which anyone can book. they are great for all ages and for parties up to 50 people. we arrived excited to get making some pizza! but first the kids and adults got outfitted in some genuine Naples pizza aprons. you don’t want to get your clothes dirty during all that pizza making.Lemon Stairs

then we were served italian sodas, with our choice of flavors like raspberry and vanilla cream. YUM!!!!! i have never had a true italian soda before…let me say…GAME CHANGER!!!!!Itallian Soda BarItalian Sodas at Naples RistoranteMaking an Italian Sodaafter we got our drinks, we all sat down and got a pizza making lesson from two of the talented Naples Ristorante chefs. we learned how to stretch the dough and even toss it in the air. that was the part i was ready to learn. i never seem to have luck with pizza dough.

while the boys and i waited for our turn to toss our pizzas, we enjoyed some yummy fresh bread and salad that was perfectly seasoned. it was nice to sit back and relax, watching the people of DownTown Disney off the balcony of Naples. it was such a nice day, and it was nice to enjoy the breeze and sunshine since we were sitting in the open air part of the restaurant.Parties at Downtown DisneyNaples Ristorante Salad
