Several guests also shared their thoughts and opinions in the comments section. One user couldn’t believe the price of the pizza ($11) and said it was “greedy” to charge so much. Another user criticized Disney CEO Bob Chapk’s lack of portions, saying, “It’s Chapek’s time for you.”
To make matters worse, the first guest to order the pizza said it felt and looked as if it had been sitting for quite some time and said, “Very disappointing. The pictures looked promising, but if this is the quality You’d better skip it, go somewhere else.” After receiving a side salad with his pizza, the guest said, “I was a little ripped off,” but with the salad Even looked pretty “sad”.
The biggest concern is that this very small slice of pizza is related to an initiative Disney announced last year to reduce portion sizes. To start cutting costs, Disney indicated it plans to “reduce portions” at restaurants at Disney parks, saying it’s “good for guests’ waistlines.”
