One of Epcot’s upcoming restaurant additions, Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue, will feature a familiar (and fuzzy) face as its host: Sam Eagle of The Muppets.
The restaurant, which will open in the American Adventure pavilion, takes its name from the ultra-patriotic Muppet, who will host a centennial cook-off there – a salute to all cook-offs…but mostly barbecue.
Sam’s image will be part of the decor for this new restaurant. Guests will see him included on the sign for Regal Eagle, as well as on posters advertising his great barbecue cook-off:
Sam will also be incorporated into new merchandise that will be available exclusively at this new dining location.
