Disney officially announced that an all-new themed table service restaurant will be heading to Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Roundup Rodeo BBQ Restaurant will join Woody’s Lunchbox (quick service) as the second food service location in the newly opened (June 2018) land.
“Using three cardboard boxes cut and taped together, Andy has created a new rodeo arena using some of his favorite toys, games, and play sets. And while some pieces are definitely western-themed, what makes this rodeo special is the broad assortment of toys that have been brought together to create a fun, colorful mashup-atmosphere that only a child could create.
Once inside, you’ll be surrounded by all of the rodeo festivities in-action as well as western town and train station play sets. And you just might spot some of your favorite Disney•Pixar characters scattered throughout the restaurant in the form of toys and game pieces including a toy version of Jessie riding on the back of a Trixie pull-toy and unique toy versions of Bo Peep and her sheep, all who appear to be performing in the rodeo together.
This immersive restaurant will surround guests with a kaleidoscope of toys, games, and playsets, providing yet another unique, fun, family-friendly dining experience that could only be had in Toy Story Land.” Disney Parks Blog
The big question is where will Roundup Rodeo BBQ Restaurant be located in Toy Story Land? There have been rumors floating around for a while now about an expansion pad located near Woody to the right as you enter the land. There are some backstage buildings located right behind the tree line between that might have to be recycled or relocated but this seems to be the only logical space. We will have to wait and see.
There is no official opening date set for this new dining experience but we will keep you informed as soon as we know more. Are you excited for this new restaurant in Toy Story Land? Talk about it in our all-new WDW Kingdom Disney Forums!
