Just got back from Rome and even though those sweet and colorful images won’t leave my sad dreamy mind, my Disney instincts kick their way on the blog…
Among the five kingdoms on earth only one contains an Italian Area : Le Parc Disneyland in Disneyland Resort Paris.
Entering Fantasyland on the north side of the castle, you can see unfold on your left a nice little row of Italian style buildings. They host two restaurants : Pizzeria Bella Note inside which you can enjoy some counter served italian treats in a typical tratorria styled Disneyfied eatery and Fantasia Gellati who serve ice cream.
Those buildings are very well noticed because sitting right next to the beginning of the parade route, having nothing across the street but garden slopes, everybody contemplates their joyful clumsy Italian forms waiting for the parade. Standing as such : on your left you can see a leaning balcony underneath which is the entrance of the Lady And The Tramp themed Pizzeria. In here you can eat italian food sitting below a fresco starring your host : Tony.
The ceiling is decorated with many hangings pastramis and such.
On your right shines Fantasia Gellati. Here the theme is more Fantasia the Movie, than Italy itself but the building reminds of the florentine Italy of our dreams. The tower at the tope is leaning softly and maids will serve you great italian ice creams along with other pastries. Laying in front of this “squash and stretch” architectural perfezione is the terrasse of the two facility with wrought iron chairs and tables. Now you should be whisteling this tarantella which is playing around of course. The parade is coming.
One last interesting note is that some part of the Disneyland’s Mary Blair mural can be found on the facade…
Nope, no other Disney’s Magic Kingdom let you walk into its own Disney little Italy but Disneyland Paris.
