I don’t exactly hide my love of Disney and food. After all, I talk about both pretty often. So while I was in Disney World this past week I went and tried a few new places that have opened since my last visit.
The former Pizza Planet location was remodelled last year and finally opened in November 2016 under the new Muppets theme, PizzeRizzo. This makes sense as Hollywood Studios is getting an expanded Toy Story area, so I don’t think Pizza Planet will be gone for long.
The pizzeria is in the Muppets section of Hollywood Studios, which isn’t nearly big enough for these long time pop icons. The section is made to look like Manhattan, and Disney does a great job of mimicking the look. The pizzeria is two stories, and pretty big inside. There are some beautiful NYC decorations throughout, and the place is kept really clean. Thanks, Disney cast members!
For $10 you get a pizza with a cup of Cesar salad on the side. Fountain drinks will run you $4. I am an Annual Pass holder so I saved a little bit of money, but it was still a little expensive for what it was, and I’m used to paying Disney prices. The pizza wasn’t bad. I opted for pepperoni and was genuinely pleased at how crispy the pepperoni’s were. The sauce was a little tart, and some of the dough didn’t taste like it had been cooked all the way. The salad was pretty good, and not soaked in dressing. I likely wouldn’t eat here next time I’m in the park (there’s a few other places I’d rather try before hand), but if you’re on a budget or have limited time, this is a good option. You can also cut costs by getting a kids meal, or by ordering a cup of water, since Disney gives those out for free.
