New Muppets Themed Pizzeria to open at Hollywood Studios


When Disney announced that they were naming the area by Pizza Planet, Mama Melrose Ristorante Italiano, and Muppet Vision 3D the Muppet Courtyard, we had a funny feeling that Pizza Planet was not going to be coming back in its old form. WDW News Today confirms that the building which formerly housed Pizza Planet, which has been closed for quite a lengthy refurbishment will be coming back as “Pizza Rizzo“, according to permit documents that have been filed.

The restaurant will still remain a quick service pizzeria, but will have a completely new theming and upgrades. It is rumored the theme will center around the classic Muppets Film, The Muppets Take Manhattan.

We’re not losing hope yet that Pizza Planet is gone for good though. We still don’t have any official word on what types of restaurants will be available in Toy Story Land when it opens. Fingers crossed Pizza Planet will re-open there…
