I know many of you reading this, can’t ever imagine leaving the hallowed grounds of Walt Disney World to eat somewhere else.   I mentioned this to a fellow Disney aficionado and he told me it was sacrilege.

My dear, sweet husband, Mark, who often accompanies me to Disney World events, isn’t the Disney Geek that I am.  He has been known to lose enthusiasm for overpriced food.  Sometimes he just wants to get away for some good pizza.  I’m happy to oblige him.  If we, Disney Geeks, are honest, there are many things to love about Disney World, but their pizza is not one of them.

Just outside of the magical gates of Downtown Disney, tucked away in the Crossroads Shopping Center is Flippers Pizzeria.  Had it not been recommend to me by my friend, Len Testa, I probably never would have darkened their door – and I am so glad I did.

Flippers has great pizza.  Flippers Brick Oven produces some dynamite pies.  Crispy and chewy crust that calls my name.  The menagerie of toppings available will suit most tastes.  The portions are generous.  We can share a small pizza, no problem.  Mark’s favorite is the BBQ Chicken Pizza $14.99. I always order a tossed salad $3.49 and a glass of wine $3.49.  The quality of the food is outstanding and the price can’t be beat.  The service has always been excellent as well.  I have not tried their other offerings, but their menu offers lots of choices.

Besides being so close to Downtown Disney, another bonus — every time we’ve gone (we go several times a year) it’s pretty quiet.  It’s a nice cool, break from the parks.  Close, quiet, inexpensive, great service and great food, what more can you ask for?

Next time you’re at Walt Disney World and the old wallet needs a break or you just have a hankering for pizza, give Flippers Pizzeria a try.

Do you ever eat out of the World?  Where do you like to go?

    How far of a walk is Flippers from Downtown Disney?

      Hi Angela,
      It’s less than a mile. Way less.
      It would be a nice walk over from Downtown Disney.

  • I’m also a big fan of Sweet Tomatoes at Crossroads — find a coupon online and you can normally get a pretty good deal.

  • 1. Don’t forget that Flippers offers delivery. The meatball pizza is one of our favorites.

    2. Another must do for my family is Sweet Tomatoes at Crossroads. Just like Jeff mentioned above this is a good quality meal for a reasonable price. Join their mailing list for online coupons.

  • Hey Caroline,
    There’s a Chevy’s in that same complex, which has pretty good Mexican food (it’s worth it for the fresh chips, salsa, and margaritas), and is terrific if you’re traveling with small kids (lots of space, high chairs, car seat slings, even a wandering balloon artist)…

  • thanks i like the idea of off prop places to eat. its hard to know whats good.

  • I like pizza off Disney property, but I prefer Giordanos. It is Chicago Cheese Stuffed Pizza and this stuff is fabulous! So cheesy! Of course they have other items as well, but I mean, the pizza is what to go for here. There are quite a few locations. We go to the one down the street from Crossroads. It is worth the trip!
