The latest rumor has us heading to Disney’s Hollywood Studios where Disney Cast Members are reporting they have been told PizzeRizzo will be closing permanently around October 20, 2018.
This story comes from The Dis where many are speculating the closure is due to a menu rework or a complete re-theming of the restaurant, quite possibly to the nearby Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge which is opening late next year.
In case you aren’t familiar, PizzeRizzo is a quick-service restaurant located in the Grand Area of Disney’s Hollywood Studios and serves up Italian Cuisine like pizzas and meatball subs. The restaurant used to be Pizza Planet before it was reimagined as the this friendly neighborhood joint run by Rizzo, the wise-cracking Muppet.
