We hope you’re hungry (and in the mood for pizza), because a brand new restaurant is headed to Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort! PizzeRizzo will be opening in Muppets Courtyard–in the spot that used to be the home of the former Toy Story Pizza Planet–this fall. The restaurant, which is operated by Rizzo The Rat, will serve casual Italian-American cuisine (which of course includes pizza).
Of course, this news doesn’t come as a complete surprise. Imagineers previously hid hints of Rizzo’s arrival at the location.
To give us some sweet deets, we’ve got a quote from the hilarious Muppet:
“Opening PizzeRizzo is a dream come true for me and my entire extended family. The Muppets are pretty happy about it, too. (Miss Piggy said something about being happy to see me ‘doing some actual work for a change.’ Oh brudder!) While it’s true I ain’t part of the upper crust, I guarantee you’ll have the cheesiest, most entertaining dining experience of your life at PizzeRizzo. So come, sit, relax and eat! That’s what I’ll be doing.”
Aside from the Fall debut window, we don’t have any other specific information regarding PizzeRizzo’s grand-opening. But stay tuned for updates!
