PHOTOS: Blue Shutters Added, Pavement Work Persists Outside La Gelateria in EPCOT

A new gelato stand is coming to the Italy Pavilion in EPCOT. We don’t know when La Gelateria, led by the Patina Restaurant Group, will open, but it has made some strides in construction this week.


The pavement in front of the kiosk has made great progress since our last check-in as a small courtyard has been created. Landscaping still remains to be done where there is currently just dirt. Pavement work towards The American Adventure needs to be worked on as well.


Blue decorative shutters have been added to either side of the windows lining the gelato stand. These are in addition to the wrought-iron accents added a few weeks ago.


A piece of wire hangs from the roof, perhaps where signage will eventually go.


The stonework and roofing ensure that La Gelateria blends in with the pre-existing buildings of the Italy Pavilion.


Hopefully, it won’t be much longer before we can cool down with some tasty gelato. Are you excited for this new treat kiosk? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
