Today Disney announced November 18th for the opening of Pizzerizzo inside the Muppet Courtyard at Hollywood Studios. Normally we would be excited by a new pizza joint coming to the parks, but sorry folks not this time.
Pizzerizzo will be serving up the same old pies as Pizza Planet once did inside the very same building. It could even be the same pizzas that have been in the freezer for the past 9 months.
Entrees are served with a side Caesar salad, and include personal-sized Pizza Pies, available in four varieties—vegetable, pepperoni, meat lovers and cheese, as well as a Meatball Sub.
Disney hopes that the new Muppet theming and name will throw off guests from discovering that these “cheese” covered ovals are actually made in a paper mill.
For dessert, indulge in traditional Italian sweets like Cannoli and Tiramisu. Specialty drinks will also be available, including a non-alcoholic Peach Bellini, and a Wildberry-Basil Lemonade Limoncello in addition to beer and wine for adults.
Looks like we get some original drinks out of the deal so it’s tit-for-tat as far as we can see. If you liked the pizzas that Pizza Planet served (I’m sorry) then you’re in for a treat on November 18th. Otherwise there’s at least another quick service location to help cut down on crowds over the holiday season.
Here’s to the little Italian rat who wishes he could cook as well as the French one.
