Back in May I reported on a rumour that Disney were looking to replace the old Pizza Planet restaurant with a Pizza place based on Rizzo The Rat from The Muppets.

I am pleased to say this is finally a rumour I reported on that was right and Disney has now confirmed the official name of the counter service restaurant will be PizzeRizzo. You can check out the official restaurant logo below:

Opening this fall at Muppets Courtyard, Rizzo the Rat owns and operates the pizzeria where guests will  be able to grab a pizza pie and a cold drink. Disney have said that guests will be:

“able to enjoy Italian-Amercian food in a whole new way, through the eyes of the loveable, wisecracking Muppet“.

On top of the indoor and outdoor seating areas Disney have said that guests will also be able to dine in a “cheesy” banquet room or in a special booth designed for one of Rizzo’s celebrity friends.

Those that regularly browse the site will know just how much I love The Muppets and really welcome the news that we are getting a Muppets themed restaurant. Here’s hoping Disney don’t waste the opportunity to involve the Swedish Chef in some capacity.

Full menu TBC but it can’t be any worse than the Pizza Planet offering before!
