When Pizza Planet’s nearly year-long closure at Disney’s Hollywood Studios was announced, we speculated that the Muppets might be taking over the long-standing fast food pizza joint. Well, it’s officially happening now…
Opening in late-2016, guests can experience “Pizza Rizzo” in the Muppets Courtyard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The restaurant will continue to operate as a counter service pizza restaurant, but guests will find an entirely new theme and better-quality food when it reopens this holiday season. The new name was confirmed by internal documents and permits filed in relation to the ongoing project.
While the exact theme of the restaurant is unknown, it does make sense as Rizzo and his rat family are from New York (and work in food service) in the classic movie “The Muppets Take Manhattan”.
Stay tuned for more details on this breaking story as they become available.
