Italy Pavilion

After Japan, we walked through the American Adventure without stopping except to take a couple photos and found ourselves in the Italy Pavilion for some more eats!

We took a look around the Italy Pavilion and the various floral displays including Garden Italiano, before moving into the Germany Pavilion.

Garden Italian (Italy Pavilion)

The Garden Italiano sign above says:

From fresh spaghetti sauce to your favorite pizza topping, this Tuscan kitchen garden features all the produce and herbs needed to create a classic Italian feast. And anyone can do it.

If you’re short on backyard space, terra cotta pots like these make beautiful containers for patio or balcony gardens.

Terra Cotta Pots

And the sign next to the terra cotta pots above says:

A staple for many gardeners, terra cotta pots are a natural choice to anchor any plant. Created by firing natural clay at a high temperature, terra cotta means “baked earth”, in Italian. As the clay is fired, the minerals are partially melted, resulting in a hardened but still porous materal. The porous quality of terra cotta allows excess water to be absorbed resulting in good root development.

Considered the best in the world, handmade Italian terra cotta pots are objects of great beauty and durability. Quality terra cotta pots are crafter from three types of clay found in the Tuscan region: Impruneta, Galestro, and Siena.

Primavera Kitchen » Outdoor Kitchen Italy Pavilion

  • Tri-colored Cheese Tortellini – Sage Butter and Chicken Veloute ($9)
  • Pomodori Verdi e Mozzarella – Fried Green Tomatoes, Mozzarella Cheese, Balsamic Reduction ($8)
  • Zeppole – Ricotta Cheese Fritters, Powdered Sugar, Raspberry Sauce, and Chocolate-hazelnut Drizzle ($7)

Now, I wish I could tell you how these dishes were, but my mind has drawn a blank! I do know, however, that the Outdoor Kitchen in Italy is always a lot more expensive than the others, In fact, in 2022, the prices are double that of 2019! Crazy!

Germany Pavilion

Right next door to the Italy Pavilion is the Germany Pavilion, where we stopped for a couple more bites to eat, as well as take a look at the miniature model village and railway.





The garden destination in Germany was the Alpine Containers, yet I don’t seem to have photos of anything in particular, so not sure if we actually saw them or not…

Not much else to tell you, so here are the photos I took:

After our stop in Germany, we walked around to the China Pavilion by way of the [Africa] Outpost and over the bridge. We also saw the Lion King topiaries again – Simba and Friends, in the Outpost area.
