From the time that we went to the Flower and Garden Festival in March until this past trip in September, Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney) had grown exponentially and was nearing completion stage. Of all the changes that Disney World has been going through, the upgrades to Downtown Disney have been my favorite because I LOVE LOVE LOVE Disney shopping! But we also got tons of new restaurants, Morimoto Asia we tried in March (to mixed reviews). This time we went more casual with more "counter service" type places, the first one I'm going to review is Blaze Pizza.
I am NOT a fan of "build your own" type lines, but luckily I had Amber with me. I tend to whisper in her ear what I want and she orders for me. If I had gone alone, I wouldn't have been able to eat here and I did end up bolting not long after our orders were placed. It was just too cramped, loud, and wild in there for me.
Now, this is one of the reasons why I hate to wait so long to do reviews...I can't for the life of me remember what each of us had. I think mine was pretty much a Margherita (obviously), but I don't know what Am had. They write the orders on paper and then put the pizza on top of it (which I wasn't a fan of because of the ink), so I can't tell what was on each).
Close-ups of each:
We also got salads and drinks-and since they had a Freestyle machine, we did get a bit creative (but I can't remember what we had). Oh, and as a side rant, is it just me or do Freestyle machines HATE left-handed people? I can't, for the life of me, ever get one of those stupid things to work and Amber has no issue whatsoever (she's right-handed). I've gotten to the point where I don't even try anymore, even locally, but anyhoo, here are the extras:
I will have to say, after the chaos of inside, we chose seating outside (never a good idea in Florida, but it was a breezy night) and it was, quite possibly, one of the best pizzas I've ever eaten in my entire life! Seriously amazing! If we could have licked the paper, we would have (and I guess we could have, but it would have been gross). I'm not a big fan of going on vacation and getting "normal" type foods that I can get at home like pizza and burgers (which kind of ruins yesterday's review, doesn't it?), but this was definitely gourmet pizza and it was one of the cheapest dinners we had the entire trip! It will be a definite stop on every future trip we can squeeze it into, that's for sure!
