New Signs and Construction Update For PizzeRizzo in Hollywood Studios

The former Toy Story Pizza Planet has been re-imagined as PizzeRizzo.  This new quick-service restaurant is set to open in the Fall of 2016.  The signs are up and construction is moving forward.  I am particularly happy with the nod to the original Pizza Planet on the recently added restaurant sign.

The pizza sign, displayed on the front of the building has a picture of Rizzo the Rat, a fun wise-cracking character from the Muppets. The theming of this new pizza joint seems more appropriate for Muppets Courtyard.  With Toy Story Land on the horizon at another location in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the timing for this change seems appropriate.  I do have to admit that I was a bit taken aback by the “Pizza-Beer” sign displayed on the building.  I do not think I have ever seen the Muppets drink beer!

The construction progress appears to be moving along quite nicely.  The upper floor is wide open, and with an anticipated opening in the next month or two, I am wondering if it will remain an open air space, hopefully with ceiling fans and tables to sit down, cool off, and relax while you enjoy your PizzeRizzo pizza.

I know that many folks are a bit disappointed that Toy Story Pizza Planet has gone from this space.  However, with Toy Story Land opening in the future, maybe we will see Toy Story Pizza Planet again in a new and improved venue.  Until then, ,I know I will be checking out PizzeRizzo when it opens.  I am looking forward to seeing what they have done with the theming.  I am also hopeful that the pizza is improved in quality, presentation, and flavor.
