Ears the News: July 22, 2016 Edition

Welcome to the latest version of Ears the News 

Brought to you by our friends at WDWMagic.com

Disney has confirmed that PizzeRizzo will open in the Muppets Courtyard at Disney's Hollywood Studios later this year
 
Taking over the space of the former Pizza Planet, PizzeRizzo will continue to offer quick service pizza and drinks when it opens in Fall 2016.

Per the Disney Blog:

Rizzo The Rat owns and operates the pizzeria, where guests can grab a pizza pie and a cold drink. Enjoy a casual Italian-American dining experience in a whole new way, through the eyes of the lovable, wisecracking Muppet.

Walt Disney Imagineering hid hints of Rizzo, his extended family and friends who have visited PizzeRizzo over the years throughout the two-story quick-service location. In addition to the expansive indoor and outdoor seating area, guests will be able to dine in a “cheesy” banquet room, or take five in a special booth designated just for Rizzo’s celebrity friends.


Refurb Updates

Voyage of the Little Mermaid at Disney's Hollywood Studios will be closing for a short refurbishment next week.  The closure is scheduled from July 24 to July 27. The two shops on either side of Voyage of the Little Mermaid , The Studio Store and In Character, will also be closed during this refurbishment.

Chip & Dale, Goofy, Daisy and Donald are now meeting in new locations at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Previously meeting guests in the Center Stage area, the characters are now spread throughout the park.  Daisy and Donald can now be found just inside the entrance near to Sid Cahuenga (now the MyMagic+ Service Center).  Goofy, and Chip & Dale, are now on Commissary Lane, just across from the Writer's Stop.

With the extensive work taking place at the park, management has been rearranging the character meet and greet locations in recent times. Mickey and Minnie moved to a new location, Red Carpet Dreams, and a brand new location, Celebrity Spotlight, opened earlier this spring with Olaf.
