    Is Via Napoli reservations only? It seems any time that works with our fast passes isn't available. Is there an option to walk up & hope there is a table for 6 available or reservation a necessity?

    Hi Deanna!

    Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria
    is one of our favorite restaurants to visit on a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. My daughters love to take photos of the giant wood-burning pizza ovens that line the wall. The ovens are named after the 3 active volcanoes in Italy: Mount Etna, Mount Vesuvius and Stromboli! From the delicious authentic Italian dishes to the delectable desserts, it's definitely worth a try if you're visiting Epcot.

    With the popularity of Via Napoli, guests will often make dining reservations as far out as 180 days in advance. If you're having trouble finding availability, you can always try walking up and seeing if there's room for your party. Your best bet would be to try for a walk-up reservation at hours that aren't traditional lunch or dinner times. Also, I encourage you to continue to check availability in the days leading up to your Epcot visit. Guests will often make changes in their plans 24 to 48 hours before their reservations, and sometimes you can get lucky with a cancellation. (Make sure you have the My Disney Experience Mobile App on your smartphone so you can search for available dining reservations while on your vacation.)

    I hope this helps with your planning, and my fingers are crossed you'll soon be enjoying a delicious pizza at Via Napoli! Have a magical day - Diane W.
