The infamously bad counter service pizza restaurant in Tomorrowland at Disneyland is getting a new theme just in time for PIXAR Fest.
Starting in April, Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port will become “Alien’s Pizza Planet – A Better Place”. The supposedly temporary re-theme of the restaurant will open with the PIXAR Fest festivities on April 13th according to internal documents. While slated to be temporary, the overhaul is very similar to when Pinocchio Village Haus “temporarily” became Red Rose Taverne. As we all know, Red Rose Taverne is still standing well over a year later and there are no plans to restore the Pinocchio restaurant.
The restaurant will of course be themed to the Pizza Planet restaurants from the Toy Story film series. The “A Better Place” tagline is based on where the Little Green Men think they are going after they are chosen by The Claw in the original Toy Story film. I also like to think it’s a claim that anything is be better in food quality and theme than the existing Redd Rockett’s.
Disney is yet to announce the change, but should shortly.
