PizzeRizzo at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Entering Seasonal Operation Until Galaxy’s Edge Opens

On October 20th, the Muppets themed quick service restaurant at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, PizzeRizzo will be closed and enter a seasonal operation schedule.

PizzeRizzo used to be the Toy Story themed Pizza Planet quick service restaurant, featuring an Arcade in the dining area, much like the restaurant from the Toy Story films. In July 2016, Disney announced that the former restaurant would be closing, and would be re-themed to PizzeRizzo, which opened in November 2016. The new theming would connect it to the Muppet*Vision 3D attraction across from it, and the removal of the arcade would mean more space.

Disney is going to need this space when Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge opens in Late Fall of 2019, as the PizzeRizzo quick service restaurant sits beside the Grand Avenue area of the park, which will serve as the main gateway into the new land. If you remember the opening of Pandora at Animal Kingdom, we can expect long lines to get into the land itself, which will spill out the main tunnel and into Grand Avenue.

PizzeRizzo is set to reopen Spring 2019.

How can it be seasonal and not be open during the most crowded time of the year? The Christmas crowds are going to be scarily big this year and they need to eat somewhere.

This doesn’t make any sense. Unless they are getting rid of the Muppets completely. Which would be a crying shame.

Darn, I was hoping to go sit in there in December with food from somewhere else in the park.

I’ll check their menu. Also looking at Woody’s Lunchbox and we should keep lunch light anyway. We have a candlelight choir pkg for dinner in Epcot at 4:10 pm. Best to stay hungry before then, perhaps.

They’re on opposite sides of the park. That would be like getting food in Frontierland and eating it in Tomorrowland. No way Jose.

I’ve seen this place even though it’s been always been closed, I took a walk in and to me it’s very pedestrian as far as theming goes. I expected a muppet themed restaurant but I really didn’t see that and looks to be a place that Disney could flip over to something else fairly quickly. There also was never really a commitment to improve the product either. So was it meant to be temporary? Possibly?

Why make it so there’s less lines and Disney can pay less staff by keeping more venues open and opening all the space in them more often? Oh yea. Guests’ experience doesn’t matter whatsoever, I remember now.
