Walt Disney World’s PizzeRizzo Closed Seasonally and Rumored to Close Permanently

PizzeRizzo, located within Disney’s Hollywood Studios, has officially closed for a scheduled seasonal closure.  This closure has sparked a variety of rumors about the future for the dining location.  Currently the re-opening date for PizzeRizzo isn’t known and that leads to speculation that the dining location may never re-open as PizzeRizzo.  Since the location opened under this name, there haven’t been as many guests visiting.  The location had already adjusted the operating hours to accommodate for the decrease in guests visiting the location.  At the time of this post, we don’t have any official confirmation from Disney on when or if the location will officially re-open.

PizzeRizzo was previously the location for Pizza Planet, which was themed after the arcade in Toy Story.  It was re themed as PizzeRizzo in 2016 when there was new work and development in the Muppets Courtyard area.  With the opening of Toy Story Land in a different location in the park, the location was re-themed as PizzeRizzo to fit in with the Muppets theme.

It is possible that the reason for the decrease in popularity for the location.  It is also possible that it is due to all of the construction that has been underway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios with the opening of Toy Story Land and the future opening of Star Wars:  Galaxy’s Edge.

We will keep you posted as we learn more about the future for this location.  Who would be upset if PizzeRizzo never re-opened?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
