A new Pizzafari Family-Style Dining Experience is now available between 5:00 and 8:00 pm every day. This experience essentially turns a part of the eatery into a sort of table-service venue. To get this service at Pizzafari, just make a reservation online or at 407-WDW-DINE during the available times, check in at the podium, and you'll be seated in one of the two designated dining rooms. Your dinner will be brought directly to your table family-style and will include two appetizers (Caprese Salad and Caesar Salad), three entrees (including pasta, chicken, and pizza dishes), and dessert. Dinner is $19.99 for adults and $11.99 for kids, and includes non-alcoholic beverages (the experience counts as one quick-service credit on the Disney Dining Plan). Don't want table-service? Don't worry—the quick-service ordering and seating areas are still available!
