Disney at Christmas sounds like a great idea. And it can be. Walt Disney World goes all out to transform the theme parks and the resorts into a celebration of Christmas. There are Christmas trees, special shows and even a Christmas party. It might even snow on Main Street USA.
The fact that Disney has announced a nearly year long refurbishment has many people asking, ” Is Pizza Planet at Hollywood Studios Closing?” While at first the idea seems crazy (Pizza Planet is very popular!) there are some very good reasons to consider it.
First is the fact that it will be closed from January to November. That suggests more than just updating and giving everything a fresh coat of paint. It suggests a complete overhaul. It suggests that the building that houses Pizza Planet today is going to house something totally different come November.
Second is location. Like the real estate agents tell you it is all about location. Pizza Planet is located right next to the Star Tours -The Adventure Continues. That location seems prime to be the center point of the new Star Wars Land and a Toy Story themed Pizza Planet would create a disturbance in the Force.
Speaking of locations Star Wars is not the only new land coming to Hollywood Studios. Toy Story is getting its own land. But where will it go? Disney is in the process of adding a third track to Toy Story Midway Mania which is probably the most popular ride at Hollywood Studios. So the logical place to place Toy Story Land is near the already existing attraction. That attraction, as you can see from the map below, is half-way across the park.
So maybe Pizza Planet is not closing for good. Maybe it is just moving to a new home. We can hope!
Disney Quick Service Seating has always been first come first served (with Be Our Guest being the only exception.) Recent tests conducted at some Quick Service locations could indicate that is about to change.
Walt Disney World is the most popular theme park in the world. It should come as no surprise that there are often long lines for the rides. If you try to eat at the normal meal times you will probably find out there are long lines at the quick service restaurants too. After all everyone has to eat right?

Animal Kingdom Coming To Life At Night! You heard it right. Two of Walt Disney World’s theme parks have become famous as half-day parks. Hollywood Studios is known as a half-day park because of the lack of attractions. Animal Kingdom is known as a half-day park because of a lack of attractions and the fact that it closes so early (often by five.)
Disney is addressing both of those situations. The big Pandora World of Avatar expansions will add two major attractions. But Disney is not stopping there. Disney is making keep the guests in the park after the sun goes down. Continue reading Animal Kingdom Coming To Life At Night→
