PizzeRizzo: Classic Disney Pizza Under New Management

by on November 30, 2016

Neon and classic pizzeria signs welcome you to PizzeRizzo.I have a secret. It’s kind of shameful in the eyes of many Disney fans. It’s definitely shameful in the eyes of those who enjoy good food.

Are you ready?

I was really sad when Pizza Planet closed earlier this year at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, because I actually liked the pizza there.

I’m sure many are now completely questioning any dining reviews I’ve ever written, but it’s true! It’s not the best pizza at Walt Disney World (which I’ll rank in an upcoming post), but it served its purpose – fast, relatively cheap, and meets the cheese-sauce-bread ratio that qualifies it as “pizza”. I wondered, therefore, whether changes made in the transformation of the Toy Story-themed Pizza Planet to the newly opened Muppets-themed PizzeRizzo would also affect the pizza.

In short: no, it’s still the same pizza (and side salads, and meatball subs). For many of you, that’s probably enough of a review to know what you’re getting into (same food, new themed area surrounding The new ordering area at PizzeRizzo is much bigger than before.your dining table). I will say, though, that a few things about PizzeRizzo pleasantly surprised me, which I’ll share below.

Guests who visit ABC Commissary at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will soon be able to take advantage of a new way to dine. Beginning November 30, the counter service restaurant will now be offering a fast-casual dining experience during dinner. This new dinner offering will include a menu that focuses on made-to-order, healthful, and specialty items.

This experience appears to be similar to one that is currently offered at Be Our Guest Restaurant for lunch. Here’s how things will will work: Guests will place their order at the counter. After placing their order, Guests will receive a pager and be able to find a table while their food is being prepared. Once their food is ready to be served, it will be brought directly to the Guest’s table.

The fast-casual dinner option will be offered daily beginning at 3:30 p.m. Lunch at ABC Commissary will continue to operate as it currently does, as a full counter service option.

Hello Friends! First, let me start by wishing the very happiest Thanksgiving to those that celebrate. Personally, I’ll be enjoying more than my fair share of turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie today!

For starters, check out this glorious sunset at Epcot!

New Doctor Strange Experience Debuts at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

by on November 8, 2016

doctor-strangeWere you someone who saw Doctor Strange in theaters this weekend? Do you love this new mystical character from the Marvel universe? If so, make sure to take a trip to Disney’s Hollywood Studios where a brand new show has quietly debuted back near Toy Story Mania.

This new experience is sort of half similar to Jedi Training Academy/half similar to Enchanted Tales With Belle. During this show, young Guests are pulled from the audience by Doctor Strange himself, based upon those who he deems has the potential to become a great master of the mystical arts. The Guests then must attempt to perform spells, which will cause a couple of unique interactions to occur. When that spell portion has concluded, the kids will then be able to have their photo taken with Doctor Strange.

Showtimes for this new experience are currently at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m.

There is currently no official word on how long this show will be available, but it’s certainly a unique experience for the Doctor Strange fan in your family.

I certainly am, so I cannot wait to catch the newest sneak preview that’s all about Moana that will be presented at the end of One Man’s Dream in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. During the preview, which begins on November 5, Guests will be able to see an advance look of scenes from the film that shares the story of an adventurous teenager who goes out on a mission to save her people, encountering the demigod, Maui, along the way.
