PizzeRizzo Opening November 18 at Hollywood Studios

PizzaRizzoDisney has just announced that PizzeRizzo at Hollywood Studios is officially opening to guests on November 18. Disney guests have long wanted a larger presence of the Muppets in the theme parks and now they are getting a new themed restaurant in that genre. The Disney Parks Blog also included the following about the new restaurant:

I also have mouthwatering menu details to share! Entrees are served with a side Caesar salad, and include personal-sized Pizza Pies, available in four varieties—vegetable, pepperoni, meat lovers and cheese, as well as a Meatball Sub. If you’re looking for a lighter option, the Antipasto Salad features a bed of Romaine lettuce piled high with tomatoes, Mozzarella, Kalamata olives, ham, pepperoni, salami and Balsamic Vinaigrette.

For dessert, indulge in traditional Italian sweets like Cannoli and Tiramisu. Specialty drinks will also be available, including a non-alcoholic Peach Bellini, and a Wildberry-Basil Lemonade Limoncello in addition to beer and wine for adults.

This restaurant is of course replacing the former Pizza Planet restaurant that was in this location and in most people’s minds anything is a step up from the food that was served during those days. What on the menu are you most looking forward to? Be sure to comment below or let us know how you feel about this new restaurant on Facebook.

Calorie Count Now Appearing on Some Menu Boards at Disney World

A few select quick service restaurants at Disney World are now showing the calorie count next to the item on the menu board. This is a test that is happening at Columbia Harbor House at Magic Kingdom and at Backlot Express at Hollywood Studios. This is good news to those people who are interested in the health value of the foods they are eating at Disney World, but it remains to be seen if this trend will continue to other quick service locations.
