Update on PizzeRizzo Closing at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Last week a rumor was going around that PizzeRizzo would be closing at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  The rumor stemmed from Disney Cast Members being told the quick service restaurant would close on October 20, 2018.  Many speculated whether this was a temporary closure or maybe the restaurant would be reimagined into something else.

A Disney spokesperson has addressed the issue stating that this will be a temporary closure which will last for several months.  Currently, PizzeRizzo is scheduled to close on October 27, 2018 and reopen sometime in spring 2019.

Disney did not state the reason for the closure.

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.

The service has already debuted at many Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom restaurants as well as dining locations in Epcot and D-Luxe Burger in Disney Springs.
