Where is Alien Pizza Planet?

What You Need to Know About the Menu at Alien Pizza Planet
Alien Pizza Planet serves, you guessed it, pizza, both by the slice and by the pie. Additionally, however, there are pasta dishes and entree salads available. The restaurant does have kids meals (spaghetti with meatballs and cheese pizza) and a toddler meal (mac & cheese).
What the Dining Experience is Like for Alien Pizza Planet
The food at Alien Pizza Planet is pre-prepared and served cafeteria-style, and is fine, but frankly nothing special. The focus here is upon quick, straightforward food with a healthy dose of Pixar theming. With that said, while you’re there, be sure to look for the original posters advertising historical Tomorrowland attractions on the back wall. The food is decent, but if you’re eating here, it’s probably because you want something fast that will allow you to get back to park activities sooner than later.
What are Some Items to Target at Alien Pizza Planet
Obviously, the main draw is pizza, but most of the offerings are basic, fastball-down-the-middle theme park pizza. The salads tend to be pretty good, and keep your eyes open for the featured salad. Also of note: while the food is prepared and ready to go, you can ask for fresh pasta, which is recommended if you are going that route.
What You Need to Know About Accessibility for Alien Pizza Planet
Alien Pizza Planet is fully accessible and should not present any unique challenges for visitors in wheelchairs or ECVs. Additionally, an allergy-friendly menu is available upon request.
Does Weather Affect Alien Pizza Planet?
Alien Pizza Planet has a significant amount of indoor seating which is unaffected by inclement weather. There is also outdoor seating that is covered by umbrellas, so there is some shade but no real protection from rain when there’s any wind.
What’s the Best Time of Day to Experience Alien Pizza Planet?
As with any restaurant, the busiest times will be during regular meal times, so if you’re looking to avoid a wait, try to visit during off-times. It has a significant amount of seating, however, and you shouldn’t have any problem except on particularly busy days. It does participate in Mobile Ordering, which is of course recommended if time is a factor.
