Pan Galactic Pizza Port is a counter service restaurant in Tomorrowland at Tokyo Disneyland that specializes in pizza, snacks, drinks, and late 80s/early 90s kitschiness. If you’re in the mood for a calzone, mochi, and watching one of the most bizarre shows in existence at Tokyo Disneyland, then you’re in for a treat.

Atmosphere & Decor
This two-story building in Tomorrowland (located across from Star Tours) opened in 1989 to coincide with the opening of the original Star Tours. It has ample seating which makes it easy to find a table both inside and outside. The decor fits right in with the theme of Tomorrowland. One thing that stands out immediately is a large pizza machine and an animatronic named Tony Solaroni (owner of Pan Galactic Pizza Port) along the second-story wall.
As the story goes, Tony Solaroni opens Pan Galactic Pizza Port on Earth and his boss gives him a call to tell him that he better not fail (he has 10 failed franchises so far). Of course, things don’t go as planned and the pizza machine goes haywire.
The show is so bizarre and kitschy that it’s fun on so many levels. It gives that nostalgic feeling of the late 80s and 90s. If you imagine Sesame Street, The Muppets, and My Pet Monster coming together to create a TV show, this is the end result, and it’s glorious.
The strange atmosphere is fun and quite charming, and you’ll end up losing yourself in this bizarre show. Just make sure to eat your calzone and pizza before it cools down too much.
If you’d like to read more in-depth about Tony Solaroni and the story behind this unique aspect of Pan Galactic Pizza Port, check out this article. It gives more detail than I ever could.
Now, for the most important part of the review. How is the food and what do they offer? Pan Galactic Pizza Port lives up to its name with a hearty serving of a personal pan pizza (salami and sausage) and a delicious calzone. The calzone comes in two types — chicken & tomato or seafood cream.
The pizza and chicken calzone won’t win any awards for best food, but they are excellent for what they are. Both are perfect for those who are less than adventurous in their culinary choices (aka picky eaters). The best thing about both of these dishes is the packaging; it’s all about the details. Before you bite into your calzone, take note of the hidden Mickey.
This is one of the restaurants that serves the infamous Green Alien Mochi. As of October 2017, they have been replaced by the Stormtrooper Mochi (no word when or if the Green Aliens will return), but the Green Alien Mochi are still available at Tokyo DisneySea (Mamma Biscotti’s Bakery) and the Scrump Mochi are available at Hungry Bear Restaurant.
The most important thing to note is this is one of the restaurants that have the Apple Tea Soda, which is my absolute favourite drink in the entire world. Get it; it’ll rock your world.
Recommendations & Tips
Follow these tips to make your experience “out of this world” (my attempt at humour):
- Tables fill up during busy periods, so it’s best to find a table first before ordering (leave a bag to hold your spot)
- The sausage pizza and chicken calzone are a must
- You’ll make me sad if you don’t try the Apple Tea Soda
- Sit inside on the second floor to watch the masterpiece show that stars Tony Solaroni
- You can get the mochi dumplings here
- Avoid the restrooms here as they are small and cramped (use the ones just outside Monster’s Inc. instead)
Not only is the pizza excellent for what they are (note that Captain Hook’s Galley also offers pizza by the slice) and great for those less adventurous (picky eaters), it offers a show that floods you with feelings of nostalgia and confusion (in a good way, of course).
