For the Toy Story fans out there (which means basically everyone, then), the story that Disneyland would turn the Pizza Planet into reality is a brilliant news.
In what is a great news for the inner-child in all of us, Disneyland is turning our dreams into reality by opening a real-life Pizza Planet from Toy Story.
If you haven’t rewatched the Toy Story at least once this year, turn to the clip above to refresh your memory on what the Pizza Planet was in Pixar’s Toy Story.
In news reported by Disney News Today, the Pizza Planet would replace the Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port in Tomorrowland at Disneyland.The report further states that the overhaul of the place would be complete just in time for this year’s PIXAR Fest.
Quoting internal documents, the report suggests that the Pizza Planet would open on April 13th, the same date on which the PIXAR Fest would start.
Currently, the overhaul of the place is planned to be temporary, though, looking at the history of past overhauls in Disneyland, we could hope that the Pizza Planet is here to stay.
For example, Pinocchio Village Haus ‘’temporarily’’ turned into Red Rose Taverne last year. However, as we now know, the Taverne is still standing even after a year, and there are no plans that it would be restored to Pinocchio restaurant anytime soon.
Another reason why the Pizza Planet might be here to stay is the widespread popularity of the Toy Story Franchise. The fourth film of the series, Toy Story 4, is set to hit cinemas on June 21, next year.
Consequently, if not for anything else, Disney could use the Pizza Planet for the promotion of the upcoming film.
It means that, if not for long, we should expect the Pizza Planet to stand at least till 2019 when the fourth Toy Story movie would be released.
