There are just a few days left to enjoy the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which will have its last run on January 3, 2016.
The final year of this well-loved holiday lights display coincides with construction for entire new lands coming to Hollywood Studios. Perhaps you’ve heard of a little film franchise called Star Wars? Yep, its getting a land of its own, along with Toy Story Land on the way as well.
While that’s not exactly “new news” anymore, the fact that Toy Story Pizza Planet is closing for a lengthy refurbishment may come as a surprise to some guests visiting Hollywood Studios in the new year.
According to wdwmagic.com, Pizza Planet will begin a major refurbishment on January 19, 2016, which will last late into the year. And, indeed, no times are available for Pizza Planet starting January 19th on the Walt Disney World website.
Word on the street has it that when the location reopens (projected for November), it may not reopen as Pizza Planet, but as a new eatery entirely. These rumors certainly make sense, given the future of Toy Story Land. Reopening a new and improved Pizza Planet in the upcoming land could result in a more immersive experience.
To clarify, none of these rumors have been confirmed by Disney. Still, it’s always fun to daydream, isn’t it? If the location does reopen with a new theme or cuisine, what would your hopes for this spot be? And would Pizza Planet as we currently know it be missed by you or any members of your traveling group?
And finally, in what ways would YOU like to see Pizza Planet reimagined in the upcoming Toy Story Land? Let’s hear it!
