Pizza Planet Closing For Refurbishment
 
Thursday, January 14th, 2016
 
 

Pizza Planet at Hollywood Studios is scheduled to be closed for refurbishment from January 19 thru November 6, 2016. Currently, there are five pressed coin machines at this location including the two machines that were recently moved there from Mickey's of Hollywood. The 3-die quarter machine at this location that was originally at Mickey's of Hollywood contains one of the new 2016 designs that was just installed the first of this month. It is not known at this time what will happen to these five machines. We are guessing that some of the machines will be retired and hopefully some of the machines like the quarter machine with a 2016 design will be relocated to a different location.
