Inside PizzaRizzo

Disney's Hollywood Studios opened its reworked Muppet Courtyard quick service restaurant earlier today, PizzeRizzo.

Taking over the former Pizza Planet, the restaurant has an all new interior and exterior, but unfortunately continues to offer very similar food and menu to Pizza Planet.

Stepping inside, the ordering area has been significantly enlarged. There are now more registers and pickup windows, which should result in a much shorter wait.

The restaurant has two levels of dining rooms, with a central staircase leading the way up to the second floor.

The second floor is the larger of the two dining spaces, split into the main dining room, and Rizzo's Deluxe Supreme Banquet Hall, which appears to be in the midst of a wedding reception, with music provided by DJ Electric Mayhem.

The second floor dining room has a lot of seating, in a variety of configurations. Tables of varying sizes, along with booths.

The place doesn't scream The Muppets, but there are some pieces of artwork throughout the building.

A large outdoor balcony on the second floor provides another seating option, equipped with both ceiling fans and heaters.

Heading back downstairs, there is a smaller dining space.

Both tables and booths are available on the ground floor.

A ground floor outdoor dining area completes the seating space at PizzeRizzo.

PizzeRizzo is a great looking restaurant, both inside and out. Although it is quick service, the quality of the space could easily have worked in a table service setting.

Almost unrecognizable from its Pizza Planet days, PizzeRizzo has clearly been designed to handle a lot of people. With the upcoming Star Wars and Toy Story Lands being located nearby, it would appear that PizzeRizzo is set to become one of the park's main quick service eateries.

If you like the Disney quick service type pizza, PizzeRizzo should be a must do. If you don't like the food, it is still worth a look around. PizzeRizzo is open daily from 11am, with closing times varying.
