Pizza Planet has been closed for a little while now and there has been much speculation whether it would open back up as Pizza Planet or as another themed restaurant. The popular guess is that it would reopen as a Muppet themed restaurant. Today Disney announced what the restaurant will be when it opens in the fall.
According to Disney Parks Blog, the restaurant will be reopening as PizzeRizzo this fall. So those that thought the Muppets would be taking over the restaurant are correct and I’m pretty excited for this change!
I love the Toy Story movies, but I always felt that there should be more of a Muppets presence. The article explains that there will be “hints of Rizzo, his extended family and friends” all over the restaurant. It will be two floors, have indoor and outdoor seating, have a “cheesy” banquet room, and have some specially designated booths.
Some people are disappointed that Pizza Planet is not reopening, but keep in mind that Disney is working on an entire section of the park that will be dedicated to Toy Story. So the movie franchise should be adequately represented.
Having more Muppet themed areas will give more character to the park, in my opinion. I’m excited for both the new restaurant and the new Toy Story section. The new Toy Story land won’t be open for a while, but luckily PizzeRizzo will be open this fall.
We will keep you updated as more news is released about the restaurant and about the new Toy Story land. Lots of exciting things are happening at Hollywood Studios!
