It’s not that there’s anything wrong with Roundup Rodeo BBQ; the food looks delicious, and the decor is both whimsical and immersive. It has nothing to do with any one aspect of the restaurant and everything to do with its conceptual theming.

Toy Story fans have wanted to visit a real-life Pizza Planet since 1995, and many feel that Disney missed the perfect opportunity to build one in Toy Story Land.

However, there is one way to find Pizza Planet in Walt Disney World, and it’s not far from Toy Story Land at all.

Pizzerizzo is Grand Avenue’s restaurant, and as the name suggests, its primary offering is pizza and other Italian foods. However, Pizzerizzo used to be a Toy Story Pizza Planet restaurant.

This quick service location offered pizza and (apparently) arcade games too! However, all that remains of this restaurant is a sign outside Pizzerizzo’s that reads, “The Best PIZZA on the PLANET.”
