PizzeRizzo Opening This Fall at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Pizza lovers, rejoice! PizzeRizzo will open this fall in Muppets Courtyard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, in the former Toy Story Pizza Planet location. Rizzo The Rat owns and operates the pizzeria, where guests can grab a pizza pie and a cold drink. Enjoy a casual Italian-American dining experience in a whole new way, through the eyes of the lovable, wisecracking Muppet.

Walt Disney Imagineering hid hints of Rizzo, his extended family and friends who have visited PizzeRizzo over the years throughout the two-story quick-service location. In addition to the expansive indoor and outdoor seating area, guests will be able to dine in a “cheesy” banquet room, or take five in a special booth designated just for Rizzo’s celebrity friends.

Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more delicious details about PizzeRizzo!


  • I wonder when this is opening? I dont see a date has been announced other than ‘fall’.

  • I’ve been a Muppets fan ever since I was a kid. This would be amazing because I love Italian Food!

  • Love Rizzo and the Muppets! I will definitely be changing my dining plans for one of our days on our December trip. Can’t wait to see this!

  • The idea of a Muppet Themed Pizzaria has been around since Muppet Vision 3-D was first built! It’s awesome seeing that it’s finally happening! Wonder if they’ll include the animatronic Muppet Rats?

  • Love this!! Would also LOVE to see a Muppet Meet and Greet in Muppet Courtyard!

  • YAY!???????☺️

  • Yay! Can you also bring something Muppety to DLR too?

  • I second the request for vegan pizza! Vegan and vegetarian options are kind of lacking in HS. A vegan option here would be AWESOME.

  • Yes!!! My kids love the muppets!! I do too!! So glad Disney is revamping the Muppets!

  • By September you think?

  • Will they offer gluten free and allergy free like the old Pizza Planet. It was awesome being able to eat a gluten free, dairy free pizza and enjoy some allergy friendly dessert items.

  • I’m guessing it’s because Toy Story will soon have its own land, but does that mean that the Muppet area will soon be more of a Muppet AREA?

  • Please tell me it will be open in December I am the biggest Muppet fan ever !!

  • Will there be gluten-free options?

  • Can’t wait to try it!

  • I’m somewhat sad to see Pizza Planet go; it was a favorite of my daughter’s. However, it was definitely starting to show its age, and it never really lived up to its potential — why was there never a giant rocket ship game from which you could have won lil green aliens? And it certainly would have been out of place now, so far away from Toy Story Land. I’m all for an expanded Muppets presence (Characters, please? Something paying homage to Beaker and Dr Bunsen Honeydew), and seeing something in the park that was an original concept design is certainly exciting. I’m especially interested in seeing how *much* of the original design is kept, because some of the original plans were quite interesting.

  • Please offer vegan pizza!

  • Two words: More Muppets.

  • Very cool!

    The Imagineers really need to bring the Muppets back to Disney California Adventure in some form.

  • Oooooh! So excited! I loved Pizza Planet but I can’t wait to try this.

  • I hope the menu stays the same. It is not gourmet, not even close, but we LOVE it!!!

  • Will the pizza be the same that the Pizza Planet had? Personally, I am hoping for something different!

  • Now Remy will have some competition!

    I hope Rizzo will have some cheesy joke pizzas like 3D 3-topping pizza and the Ms Piggy Pizza (no ham).

  • I LOVE that more Muppets are coming to WDW! 🙂 We loved Pizza Planet because it offered non-dairy cheese so that vegans and those with dairy allergies could enjoy a nice pie in DHS. Will the new restaurant also offer this option?
