Rizzo’s Pizza Parlor Coming to Disney World?

We’ve been waiting with bated breath to hear what the rumored Muppet-themed restaurant at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios will entail.  And now it seems that it will entail someone with a tail.

According to the WDW News Today blog, the Muppet restaurant will be Pizza Rizzo, a pizza parlor hosted by Rizzo the Rat.  Although the blog cites “internal documents” as their confirmation, the news hasn’t been reported anywhere else.  So we’re taking this with a grain of salt (or Parmesan cheese) until we get word from Disney.

It’s also interesting to see that Rizzo may be front-and-center for the restaurant.  While not the most prominent Muppet, he’s still a fan favorite, despite being mostly missing in the latest two theatrical Muppet movies.  But he’s also the character who would most appreciate having his own pizza joint, because Rizzo likes food (in case you didn’t know, that’s his thing).

Stay tuned for more information about the Muppet restaurant as we hear it!
