So far, things have been going well. The major test will be in a few weeks when the summer season is in full swing.

Rumor Watch: Rizzo’s Pizza

A rumor has been floating around that the former Pizza Planet, located in what is being called Muppet Courtyard, will be reopened and redesigned as Rizzo’s Pizza.

It will feature a heavy Muppet theme surrounded around the cheesy rat, Rizzo and his pals.

We will have to wait and see if this pans out.
