Italy’s biggest party has returned to Disney Springs. Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante is once again hosting their Carnevale celebration and it combines the delicious food of the restaurant with an amusing party atmosphere.
We were lucky enough to get invited out to check out the Carnevale celebration and I have to say, it was a great time. The experience comes complete with a special menu, live music, stilt walkers, juggler, face-painters and more!
The experience begins before you even step foot in the restaurant, with performers taking the fun to the streets of Disney Springs. Once you do step inside, the party is all around you, with more performers, decorations and music setting the tone for the night.
Maria & Enzo’s offers a special menu just for Carnevale, including the Feast of Carnevale – a five course dinner that will leave you stuffed and satisfied. I will admit this event can be a bit pricey. I say “can be” because you can still order off of their normal menu, so your total cost is really up to you. The Feat of Carnevale however, is $45 per person. So if you go with two people, don’t expect to spend less than $100.
That being said, the price is well worth it. A five course meal for $45 is really a great price. And if you’re not familiar with Maria & Enzo’s, the serving sizes are more than generous (if you order the right things). There is also a special Carnevale drink menu, with cocktails, beers and more.
All of the food was delicious, but where the real value of Carnevale comes in is with the entertainment and freebies. You’ll find some Carnevale goodies at your table, like beads and masks. Entertainers travel the restaurant, visiting guests at their tables. Guests can get their faces painted and get balloon animals without ever leaving their seats.
If you do want to venture away from you table, you can even get your very own hand-painted Carnevale mask, with your choice of color scheme. All of this is included in the Carnevale experience and won’t cost you a thing.
Altogether, Carnevale is a lot of fun. It is a bit of a pricey night out, but it’s well worth the money. Not only can you get a great five course meal, but you also get to experience an incredible party.
Carnevale will continue at Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante at Disney Springs through March 5. You can make your reservations here.
