Disney’s Hollywood Studios is preparing to open its newest table service restaurant, the Roundup Rodeo BBQ, in Toy Story Land. But, it will be a little later than expected. Originally set for a 2022 opening, this upcoming BBQ restaurant will now open spring 2023. Disney claims this is a one-of-kind dining experience featuring delicious barbecue and toy-sized fun.
Using his imagination, Woody’s Roundup toys, and other playthings, Andy has built a rodeo restaurant for all his pals. Disney invites diners to enter the dining room and discover how much fun Andy had creating a rollicking place for all honorary toys (guests) to enjoy barbecue-inspired comfort foods. These meals will be served family-style, with platters of house-smoked meats, a roundup of sides, and some miniature sweet surprises along the way.
Since opening in 2018, Toy Story Land has been extremely popular at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Slinky Dog Dash, the land’s signature roller coaster, continues to have some of the longest wait times for any Disney ride in the world. What this land, and all of the park, needs is a new dining locale. And, the Roundup Rodeo BBQ is set to fulfill that need.
In this wild, western setting, guests can find a steam train supported by colored pencils, a house made of cards, and game boards featuring beloved characters from the “Toy Story” films. To fill the stands of this rodeo arena, Andy has decorated the cardboard box with hand-drawn audience members. The dining room also features the rodeo’s star performers, Jessie, Trixie, and Bo Peep with her leapin’ sheep Billy, Goat, and Gruff.
As you can see, the artwork and set pieces will fit right in with the rest of the colorful and oversized pieces in Toy Story Land. This will be the second addition to Toy Story Land within a year, as the exit of Toy Story Mania has recently received a new gift shop, Jessie’s Trading Post Gift Shop.
As of the time of this article’s publishing, there is no additional menu info or way to get reservations for this upcoming dining location. Stay tuned for more details on this upcoming table service offering, (more AC options in Toy Story Land is a very welcome addition).
