  • Red Rocket's Pizza Port

    Do you think that Red Rocket's Pizza Port should stay, or do you think it should become a C, D, or E-Ticket attraction? If so, what should they do with it?

      Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
      Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
      Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
      Marge: Pink.
      Homer: D'oh!
      Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

        well, there's a whole chunk of land around Space Mountain that needs torn down and re-Imagineered from the ground up. Everything from RRPP to Magic Eye to Starcade is just a hodgepodge of little chunks of space that are useless as currently configured, but could add up to a whole new entertainment complex with a new ride, a more space-efficient eatery, and some SUNSHINE.

        But yeah, keep some of the menu items from going away.

          Is the pizza any good? I haven't actually tried it yet... What's the crust like? How much pepperoni do they use?

            I still cant understand for the life of me, why they didnt make it "Pizza Planet" from the movie. Doesnt seem like it would be all that hard or expensive.

                I had heard that someone else bought the rights to the name "Pizza Planet" before Disney thought to do that, so they lost their chance to use that name. It is sad, that would have been really great.

                  It should go.

                  Sorry, but the pizza place as is wastes a huge amount of great space. It has to go.

                  I wouldn't mind transferring it's food elsewhere, or having it someplace else, but that's prime tomorrowland ridespace being burnt up for a thinly themed self serve restaurant. Really needs to go.

                  Now, if that whole corner of TL was designed better, or more rides where added back in, I'd have less of an issue with it. But keeping it while TL is in the shape it's in is flat out wrong.

                    Pizza Port should it go or should it stay?

                    I would say we should stay! the food is actually very good - especially the pasta and there is a huge amount of seating available. I don't see a problem with the eatery at all but more with the hodge podge of buildings, exits and entrance to attractions (If you can call HISTA an Attraction !) Now there is an area ripe with possible retheming - Can you say new Simulation ride?

                    Thanks,

                      The problem I have with it is that every time I go in there, it is filthy. Trash and food everywhere, left on the tables and on the ground too. It is not an environment I want to eat in. I don't remember the food being very good either, but we had pizza and salad, not the pasta. I say burn it to the ground. Maybe that's a little extreme, just keep it clean at least. I think there are other places in Tomorrowland that could be utilized before they use the Pizza Port space.

                          Yeah, I think there is Zimbubba. I've ate there too...it was still yucky.

                              Keep the pizza port! I love the food there. The Chicken Fusili is my favorite. If they are really after space, then move the restaurant upstairs above the arcade.

                                By what definition does it "waste" space? The place is always packed when I go. It seems to be fulfilling the need for food on that end of the park nicely.

                                  Ohhhhhhhhhh....the Fusilli! The TASTIEST way to ensure an early trip to the grave!

                                  My favorite, too...

                                  But then, about two hours later, after the carbs settle down, I'm always looking for a place to take a nap. Once I even went to 1st Aid and asked them if I could lie down because I wasn't "...feeling well." Nice 40 minute nap whilst the fam rode Alice!

                                    Just to elaborate, I think it really is the perfect size for the need. It's always got a lot of people in it, but it's just big enough that there's always a table or two available. The casheirs always have a customer, but not so many that you've got to wait very long to check out. I find it to be one of the best designed food locations in the park, it runs incredibly efficiently without a lot of wasted resources. The only thing I don't like is the location of the soda dispenser. That's the one bottleneck, but it's not too bad.

                                      First of all, it does have some of the best affordable food in the park. When you have a family that really makes a difference. About the cleanliness issue, I too have been a little exasperated at the goofing off of those particular cm's at Redd Rockets.(I actually saw one lazy cm throw away a tray).
                                      You need a crew of really efficient workers to keep up with a crowd that size, but I chocked up the situation to the poor training that the park had adopted during Pressler/Harris era.
                                      Mr. Ouimet is getting things done, maybe this situation will be corrected.
                                      Even though they changed the name of the place, we still associate it with Toy Story, and I bet alot of other families do also. With the opening of Buzz Lightyear, it could make for a great Tomorrowland experience for families.
                                      As I was growing up, the dining experience in each of the lands was a memorable experience for us. I know attractions are important, but families share good times together at the eating venues as well.
                                      That said, Disneyland doesn't have a good track record moving restaurants, and keeping the same quality/experience. It would most likely disappear altogether. I hope it stays.
                                      Goin around the world...and back to Disneyland!

                                        It's the only place my child can get pizza, since she lives primarily on chicken nuggets and pizza, we're limited on choices for the kid (and us adults). Haven't tried the pasta yet, but will make a point to in the future.
                                        Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
