PizzeRizzo to Open in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

pizzerizzo to openA little while back I wrote that over at Hollywood Studios “Pizza Planet” was closing for a new Muppets based restaurant called: “PizzeRizzo”.  Well you won’t have to wait long at all to try it out as it’s set to open sometime this fall.  The whole idea behind the restaurant is based on the lovable character Rizzo the Rat who owns and runs the pizzeria.

Besides Rizzo, the Disney imagineers have hinted that his friends and family will also be present in the what’s sure to be interesting Italian-American dining experience.  Guests will be able to sit in the big indoor or outdoor seating areas, as well as a special “cheesy” banquet room, or 5 special booths that are designated for Rizzo and his celebrity friends.

My only disappointment is that it’s going to be a quick-service spot and not a full sit-down restaurant.  I guess it doesn’t matter too much, I just had in mind a fuller dining experience that leaves you immersed in the Muppet experience for a full 2 hour meal, but I’m sure this is going to be a wonderful experience in itself. Stay tuned for more updates.

If you enjoyed this article, as always I appreciate it if you’d share it with others via social media.  I work hard at making this website into a useful resource for you and your family to plan your visit to Walt Disney World, and I hope it can help you! Thanks 🙂

Your Thoughts:

I want to know what you think of the new PizzeRizzo.  Are you looking forward to trying it out?  Would you prefer to see a full sit-down restaurant as apposed to a quick-service?  Let me know in the comments section below! 🙂
