Last week Disney digitally removed a crude hand gesture made by superstar Steven Tyler that people used to use in the 90’s that appeared during the Rockin’ Roller Coaster pre-show. Steven wasn’t impressed, and as a result sent out an interesting tweet including a photo too explicit for this site, but it was funny nonetheless. Disney did not respond.

PizzeRizzo will be opening this fall near the Muppet 3D Vision attraction and is the first ever Muppet-themed restaurant.

Celebrity Chef Guy Fieri has developed a new burger, and sandwich menu for the re-opening of the Planet Hollywood Observatory in Disney Springs set to open this fall. Robert Earl founder and CEO of Planet Hollywood and host of Robert Earl’s Be My Guest airing weekly on the Cooking Channel Has asked Fieri to design a portion of the new menu. A Primetime American Kobe Inspired Burger and a Turkey Pic-a-nic Sandwich are just a sampling of the new menu of bold and mouth-watering flavors Fieri has created. The reimagined Planet Hollywood Observatory will be reminiscent of a turn of the century observatory with modern design aesthetics throughout the interior and exterior creating a warm and welcoming vibe for guests to experience a new generation of Hollywood glam.
