Several new Star Wars additions have recently taken center stage at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, starting with new displays inside Star Wars Launch Bay that feature authentic replicas from “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” The new AWR Troopers from “Rogue One” are also now appearing in the daytime stage show “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away.”

For the ultimate Star Wars fan comes the ultimate experience: the all-new Star Wars Guided Tour.

Photos – Inside Rizzo’s Deluxe Supreme Banquet Hall at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

For guests who are unfamiliar with Pizzerizzo at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this is the newly themed location that previously housed Toy Story Pizza Planet.

One cool side area of Pizzerizzo is Rizzo’s Deluxe Supreme Banquet Hall.  It is located at the top of the stairs and if you like cheesy wedding reception/banquet hall dining make sure to eat in this area.  It features a dance floor (yes we have seen people dance on it) along with classic 70’s and 80’s music.

Here are some photos of the area.
