Backlot Express has a huge dining room and a lot of wasted space...but I don't know if it is 10k sq feet of wasted space... Hopefully they will have a second level and enough capacity...
Not doing Pizza Planet was a mistake IMO

But then we'd have to deal with whatever convoluted nonsense backstory Imagineering Chapek came up with to explain why there is a Pizza Planet franchise in Andy's backyard.

You can put anything in Andy's backyard and claim it's a toy version of that thing. Which is what they have done. And because there's just about a toy/model version of just about anything.

Make the next monorail extension stop at Andy's backyard? Sure! Because there exists a toy version of the monorail.

It's a bit on the nose, but it works. It's a bit more clever when a toy version of a thing gets repurposed. The Lunch Box QS is a good example of that. If they were ever to build a TSL playground, rather than put in a toy version of a playground (which exists in real life), it would be much more clever to repurpose toys as playground equipment.

The Pizza Planet Play Set seems like less of a stretch than the boardwalk midway games play set. And if people really want a Pizza Planet experience they can get it a lot closer to home and cheaper...

Blog Mickey has some aerial photos of the new restaurant. It looks small or is that just the perspective?

If we assume it follows the rough outline on the ground and that it is one story, it would be 13,000 sq/ft. By comparison Backlot Express is 24,000 sq/ft.

Are you able to determine the size of a TSR at DHS? I realize that’s tricky given how many are in the same building as something else. 50s isn’t huge...

From BlogMickey. The layout is interesting, two large spaces separated by a wall with two doors in it. It would seem that any one space would be to big for back of house. I am also trying to figure out where the entrance will be. The large door facing the land in the middle of the picture would make the most sense. The right wall also has a lot of openings in it, but that would take a lot to hide backstage, at least a bunch of new giant fence. If the right side isn't an entrance, then it would have to be back of house since there would be no reason for a bunch of doors and windows going to back stage in the dining area.

Half the space being back of house would be rather typical for a table service facility of this size.

We're looking at about 5,000 SF for the dining room, which would place capacity between 250 - 300 people depending on whether or not Disney goes with a more standard table service spacing arrangement or decides to cram in as many people as legally possible.

I'm thinking left side of the pic is dining, right side is back of house. Guest facing entrance is the opening towards the center, to the left of the dividing wall. This offers guests the most direct access to the dining room while offering back of house the most direct access to back stage. It also means they'd have to theme less of this area. The right side of the building also has that break in the tilt wall that could be used for any sort of ventilation or infrastructure necessary for the kitchen.
