    Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza, the nation’s leading fast-casual artisanal pizza specialist, announced plans to open a new restaurant at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World Resort at Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The build-your-own pizza chain, known for its chef-driven recipes and casually hip restaurants, will occupy a new 5,000 square foot building with seating for approximately 200 guests.  The target open date is May 2016.

    Downtown Disney is currently undergoing the largest expansion in its history, to be renamed and reimagined as Disney Springs, an exciting new waterfront district for shopping, dining, and entertainment.

    “We are excited to be part of the new Disney Springs expansion where we get the chance to introduce our super-fast artisanal pizza to guests from around the world,” says Rick Wetzel, cofounder of Blaze Pizza. “True to Disney’s high standards, we are building an amazing flagship restaurant that will include interesting architectural elements, great service, and fantastic meals.”
