Grabbing a quick bite to eat and enjoying the BoardWalk Inn and Villa‘s relaxing and eponymous boardwalk is a simple pleasure of a Walt Disney World vacation. And the BoardWalk Pizza Window has been a staple of the resort since the old days.
It seems that PizzeRizzo — the Counter Service pizza spot in Disney World’s Hollywood Studios — will be moving to seasonal operations soon.
Up until this morning, the Disney World website displayed operating hours for PizzeRizzo nearly through the end of the month, similar to the other Counter Service locations in Hollywood Studios like ABC Commissary. However, now PizzeRizzo is displaying “No times available” starting Sunday, October 21st. [Read more…]
Sunshine Seasons in Epcot’s The Land Pavilion is a hidden gem to many. If you’re unfamiliar with it – it is that food court you run by while you’re on your way to Soarin’! 😀
Don’t get turned off by “food court” because there is always something good cooking here! And we made a brand new discovery! [Read more…]
If you’ve walked the boardwalk around Disney World’s Boardwalk Inn resort recently you may have noticed there was some work being done on the Boardwalk Pizza Window located outside Trattoria al Forno. We now know the menu was being updated!
The location now offers a broader menu with more pizza choices – in a personal size or a whole pie, as well as sub sandwiches, new salads and desserts. [Read more…]
Hi, friends! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re talkin’ PIZZA in Disney World… the best AND the worst!
Because who doesn’t love it? I mean, you really can’t go wrong with pizza… or can you? Thanks to the addition of a few new pizza joints over the past couple of years, there’s a larger range of choices for pizza in Disney World now than ever before. So we’d love to share our top (and bottom) picks with you so you can select the best slice — or pick the best pie — during your Disney World vacation! [Read more…]
Remember the old days when grabbing some Counter Service Pizza in Disney World typically resulted in receiving a big pillow of not-super-great crust taking over half of the pie and not allowing for much in the way of toppings? Well, if you reeaaallly want to, you can still get plenty of that in spots like PizzeRizzo in Hollywood Studios.
But guests looking for something different from Counter Service pizza options could — and still can — rely on Wolfgang Puck Express, which serves pizza among lots of other popular menu items. But those were the old days. And now, we have two counter service spots that specialize in pizza: Blaze Pizza and the brand new Pizza Ponte.
What they share in common is location, with both in Disney Springs, not too far from each other at all. And they are both Counter Service joints (you don’t need an Advance Dining Reservation to grab some pizza at either place).
Pizza by the slice — and more! — is, at long last, available in Disney Springs thanks to the arrival of Pizza Ponte!
As one third of a trio of eateries in Disney Springs, Pizza Ponte provides a fast-casual option for guests hoping to try out the Italian cuisine offered by this new group of restaurants headed by the Patina Restaurant Group. Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante (a table service restaurant) and Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar will make up the other components of the group when they open in coming weeks.
By the name, you obviously know that the headliner item is PIZZA — more specifically, Sicilian pizza served by the slice. But sandwiches, pastries, and espresso also make up the menu.
But I’ve said the word “pizza” enough by now that I’m sure everyone’s more than ready to dig into a slice, so let’s start our tour now!
Pizza Ponte is the starting point of the greater story of the business ventures of Maria and Enzo. You’ll find the new locations in The Landing, with nearest landmarks being STK Orlando and Paradiso 37 (and, of course, the VERY soon-to-be-open Edison).
In fact, you’ll enter Pizza Ponte under the sign for Maria and Enzo’s Ristorante, under the simple label of “Pizzeria.” [Read more…]
The counter service spot, part of the Muppets Courtyard section of Studios, recently opened in place of Toy Story Pizza Planet. And we think they’ve knocked the theming out of the park! [Read more…]
PizzeRizzo is now OPEN for business in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
This Counter Service eatery served its last pizza pie as Toy Story Pizza Planet in January of this year.
Throughout most of 2016 a HUGE makeover has been taking place, transforming this space that was once filled with visions of Little Green Men and arcade games into an establishment owned-and-operated by none other than Rizzo the Rat of Muppets fame!
Located in what is now known as the Muppets Courtyard section of the park, PizzeRizzo is at long last ready to welcome you and yours to the (literal) party! So join us for our very first visit to The Famous Original PizzeRizzo!!
Over the past several months, we’ve been able to spy plenty of outdoor details of PizzeRizzo as the transformation has taken place. [Read more…]
The opening date has been set for PizzeRizzo! The Counter Service eatery will open in Disney’s Hollywood Studios on November 18th!
And we’ve got some details on the eats, too! While we have long known that the specialty of the house would be — obviously! — pizza (and it looks like the pizza will be pretty much the same as what was served at this spot’s predecessor, Toy Story Pizza Planet), it seems there will be a bit more to the menu.
Each Personal-sized Pizza entree — with choices including Veggie, Pepperoni, Meat Lovers, and Cheese — will be served with a side Caesar salad. A Meatball Sub will also be on the menu, as well as an Antipasto Salad (Romaine lettuce with tomatoes, Mozzarella, Kalamata olives, ham, pepperoni, salami, and Balsamic Vinaigrette).
Dessert options will feature Cannoli and Tiramisu. Specialty drinks will step outside the Counter Service norm with options such as a non-alcoholic Peach Bellini. Wine and beer will be available for guests 21 and over, along with a Wildberry-Basil Lemonade Limoncello.
Some further information has also been released regarding the decor.
Be sure to look all over the restaurant for signs of Rizzo the Rat of Muppets fame as well as his extended family and friends who have paid visits to the restaurant over the years.
Your inner party-goer will definitely want to seek out a seat UPSTAIRS in Rizzo’s Deluxe Supreme Banquet Hall, where a wedding reception will be “already in progress…” COMPLETE with a disco ball and accompanied by a party playlist!
Looks like I’ve still got a few weeks to brush up on some of my best wedding dances. (I don’t wanna brag or anything, but I do a pretty mean “Sprinkler.”) I hope to see YOU on the dance floor at PizzeRizzo!
