Muppet-themed restaurant PizzeRizzo soft opens at Walt Disney World with subtly fun details

in Disney, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Food, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios today, Walt Disney World soft opened the new Muppets-inspired restaurant called PizzeRizzo.

Taking the place of the former “Toy Story”-inspired Pizza Planet restaurant that stood there for many years, PizzeRizzo taps into a strongly New York aesthetic while borrowing elements from the world of the Muppets.

Those expecting an over-the-type Muppet theme will want to visit MuppetVision 3D, the long-running show just across the way in the park. PizzeRizzo takes a much more subtle approach, integrating Muppets elements as if this were a real New York pizza restaurant that Rizzo the rat really opened.

Muppets fans will find all sorts of fun references and artwork throughout the restaurant, including caricatures of some favorite furry faces as well as little in-jokes scattered on bulletin boards and shadow boxes.










The restaurant’s signature pizza is largely the same as what was served at Pizza Planet, along with much of the menu.



The restaurant officially opens tomorrow and more Muppet details are expected to be added in the coming weeks.

    Looks like the imagineers designed this place so that it could be easily rethemed by simply switching out signage and decorations.

    I see they had to insert some homosexual garbage in there. Absolutely sickening.

      Where? I assume you refer to the Wedding announcement signage. Perhaps Phil could be short for Phyllis? Open your mind and remember who designed a majority of the Disney Theme Parks, work on films, etc, and who assist you on your visits to the Theme Parks… Don’t bite the hand that feeds you. Remember your audience.

      Agreed. Obnoxious pandering. Even more disgusting than the muppet rat. Remy it’s not.
