If you are completely charmed by the Space Aliens (aka the Little Green Men) in Toy Story, then you’ll want to check out some new merchandise we spotted online today!
We’ve got some serious love for the early Disney/Pixar movies.
But we especially love one of the best of the bunch — the OG Toy Story! Well, this year marks 25 years since we first saw those lovable toys in Andy’s room. Today, is ALSO National Pizza Party Day. Coincidence? We think not. To celebrate check out these cool pizza recipes from Disney!
Are you a Disney Pin Collector or Trader?
Personally speaking, I’m really not. But I’ve always had an appreciation for the teeny works of art. So every now and then I take a look to check them out, which is how I found myself in Disney’s Pin Traders in the Marketplace of Disney Springs (located directly across from Earl of Sandwich).

Happy New Year, DFB Friends!
Let’s face it: 2016 handed us some real bummers. But there were some good things that happened, too. And that’s especially true where Disney Food is concerned.
Today as we gather our noisemakers, funny hats, and bubbly to ring in the New Year, let’s take a few minutes to review some of the biggest Disney Food News Stories of 2016.
Are you with me? Let’s go! [Read more…]
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…]

When Toy Story Pizza Planet closed in January for a refurbishment it was immediately wondered if the Hollywood Studios pizza spot would reopen with a new theme.
A short time later, a few clues began to lend weight to rumors that the quick service spot might reopen with a Muppets theme. First, there was the arrival of construction walls around the closed restaurant with more than a subtle hint of that classic Muppets humor. [Read more…]
It’s time for another Trip Around the World to check out all the latest eats and happenings… and maaaaaybe a couple of construction walls, while we’re at it ;). Because while April showers might bring May flowers, this month is also bringing LOTS of changes to the Disney World parks!
And nowhere else is that more true than…
“Please Pardon Our Pixie Dust”
It’s already been over six months since it was announced that MAJOR changes are on the way to Disney’s Hollywood Studios with the construction of Toy Story and Star Wars Lands.
Of course, it will be quite some time before those Lands are realized, but early April brought some of the first physical signs of change as the Streets of America section of the park (including eateries such as Studio Catering Co., High Octane Refreshments, Herbie’s Drive-In and the Pretzel Garden) was officially closed to make way for construction. [Read more…]
For those keeping track of changes at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this week, there’s one more to add to the list. You already likely know that the construction of Toy Story Land and Star Wars Land is now officially underway, as evidenced by the very recent closure of Streets of America fixtures such as Studio Catering Co. and the Lights! Motors! Action Extreme Stunt Show to make way for the new ventures.
But what about Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano? It was always part of the former Streets of America section of the park, and yet it’s still in operation. (Yay!)
Well, it’s now part of the newly renamed Muppets Courtyard! The new name of this area of the park is revealed in the updated Guide Map for Disney’s Hollywood Studios (it’s listed on the bottom right of the shot below). [Read more…]
