PizzeRizzo Opening This Fall at Disney’s Hollywood Studios



Pizza lovers, rejoice! PizzeRizzo will open this fall in Muppets Courtyard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, in the former Toy Story Pizza Planet location. Rizzo The Rat owns and operates the pizzeria, where guests can grab a pizza pie and a cold drink. Enjoy a casual Italian-American dining experience in a whole new way, through the eyes of the lovable, wisecracking Muppet.
Walt Disney Imagineering hid hints of Rizzo, his extended family and friends who have visited PizzeRizzo over the years throughout the two-story quick-service location. In addition to the expansive indoor and outdoor seating area, guests will be able to dine in a “cheesy” banquet room, or take five in a special booth designated just for Rizzo’s celebrity friends.

Get a Peek at New Star Wars-Themed Land at Disneyland Park

In April, we celebrated the official groundbreaking of Star Wars-themed lands coming to Disneyland® and Walt Disney World® Resorts, and beginning today, Disneyland Park Guests can get a glimpse of this exciting and immersive experience. A new image has been unveiled on the fence along Big Thunder Trail in Frontierland - one of the entry points to this never-before-seen planet in the Star Wars galaxy - revealing more about what you will find in this all-new land.


Nestled between towering spires of rock, this thriving port contains a seemingly familiar architecture of markets, landing zones and buildings. Look closely and you may find hints of some of the thrilling experiences that are coming - like the Millennium Falcon peeking out of one of the cargo bays, marking the location where you will get the opportunity to pilot the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy. 

The 14-acre land will be the largest-ever single-themed land expansion at Disneyland Resort.  Stay tuned.... we'll continue to bring you updates as we learn more about this planet, as well as the citizens, aliens and droids who populate it.
