We broke the news on Wednesday evening that the All-Star Movies and Music Resorts at Walt Disney World were going to start selling pizza inside their respective bus loops, just outside of the hotels. Upon hearing this news, myself and Josh of EasyWDW.com decided we needed to go over to the resort and see exactly what was going on.
As we pulled into the resort, we could see what appeared to be a green shed out in the bus loop area. We said that this surely couldn’t be it. But it was… it was…
While advertised to be open from 7-10pm nightly starting this past Wednesday evening, when we arrived after 8pm, the old Food and Wine Festival booth was still shuttered.
A selection of bottled and canned beverages are available for your convenience.
The menu is very short, but serves a good purpose for those returning from a day at the parks. If they are hungry, they can stop here and avoid the hustle and bustle of the interior food court.
I felt the need to document such an important moment in the history of the Walt Disney World Resort (once the booth finally did open), so here is video of Josh purchasing the first-ever “bus loop pizza” ever at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort:
Pepperoni Pizza from Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort – World Premiere Express ($15.49)
For $15.49, this really isn’t a terrible value. The pizza is of a very good size and can feed at least 4 people. Considering what people pay for an individual pizza at the park counter service restaurants, this is quite the bargain. To my surprise, it wasn’t too awful in taste either. It reminded me a lot of a Pizza Hut pizza, which is just fine when it comes to counter service pies.
While I know this comes at a time where we see Disney trying to squeeze every last penny out of the guests visiting, this one is actually a good idea and a nice service to the tired guests coming home from a full day of theme park fun. I wanted to hate this, I wanted to poke more fun at it, but I honestly can not. It wasn’t the best pizza in the world, and honestly, I’m not sure that’s what you are looking for at 9PM as you carry your kids off of the motor coach. If you’re hungry on the way home to the All-Star Resorts, this is a viable option for a quick dinner for you and your family.
