The Toy Story pizza place Pizza Planet is opening in Disneyland and it sounds amazing.
As of April, Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port in Disneyland, Anaheim, will become Alien’s Pizza Planet – A Better Place.
While it’s set to be a temporary re-theme of the restaurant, it could become permanent after it opens alongside the PIXAR Fest festivities on April 13 according to WDW News Today.

It is expected to be heavily-themed on the Pizza Planet restaurant from the Toy Story film series.
WDW News Today writes:
The ‘A Better Place’ tagline is based on where the Little Green Men think they are going after they are chosen by The Claw in the original Toy Story film.
The overhaul is very similar to when Pinocchio Village Haus ‘temporarily’ became Red Rose Taverne, which just so happens to be going strong well over a year later and there are no plans to restore the Pinocchio place.
Toy Story Land at Disney is looking incredible, with the park updating future guests on what to expect.
Disney describe the park – situated on the California site – as a ‘colourful landscape’ filled with ‘giant building blocks and game board pieces’, and they want you to be immersed in an experience ‘straight out of Andy’s vivid imagination’.
The park’s buildings have been designed to look like ordinary objects, making guests feel as though they’ve been shrunk to toy size as they venture through the park.

You’ll get to hang out with the likes of Woody, Buzz, Slinky Dog, Rex, the Aliens and many other beloved Toy Story characters.
The main attraction will be the Slinky Dog Dash rollercoaster, where you’ll sit in a Slinky Dog carriage as it bends and twists the slinky coils around curves, hills, bridges and drops.

Make no mistake, this is one wacky attraction… and fun for the entire family!
Another ride, the Alien Swirling Saucers, will take you on a dizzying ride through space! Hang on tight as your toy rocket ride takes off, all while space electronica provides an out-of-this-world beat.
There’ll also be an arcade area with a rocket-themed ride called The Claw, aimed at Buzz Lightyear fans.
Earlier this year Disney published details of ‘Woody’s Lunch Box’, an amazing food court where guests will be able to dine out on soda floats and delicious snacks and treats.
Carlos Castro, vice president of Disney Corporate Alliances said:
We can’t wait for our guests to experience Toy Story Land, and the new quick-service window located within the land will surely delight hungry toys and people alike.
We are thrilled to collaborate with Mini Babybel and introduce additional snack offerings in Toy Story Land and throughout Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.
Ever since Bob Chapek, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman, confirmed Toy Story Land was in the works at the D23 Expo 2017, fans have been eagerly waiting for an opening date… which has now been confirmed as June 30!
Get the date in the diary and those flights booked! How amazing does it sound?
