We finally have an opening timeframe for Roundup Rodeo BBQ in Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We will finally see this restaurant come to life in the Spring of 2023. Do you know what else is opening in the Spring of 2023? Tron, hopefully.
Here’s the first look from Disney, showing some details from inside the dining location.
Earlier in 2022, it was announced that this new BBQ table service restaurant would open later in the year. We have approached the end of the year, and progress has been made, but not enough for an opening date in 2022. This new location will serve family-style meals, which means this location will have a hefty price tag.
Using his imagination, Woody’s Roundup toys, and other playthings, Andy has built a rodeo restaurant for all his pals. We are excited for guests to enter the dining room and discover just how much fun Andy had creating a rollicking place for honorary toys to enjoy barbecue-inspired comfort foods served family-style, with platters of house-smoked meats, a roundup of sides and some miniature sweet surprises along the way.Disney Parks Blog
Just like any other themed dining location, there is a back story. The story is that Andy has built a rodeo restaurant out of toys and other spare items. If you look closely, you’ll see characters from the “Toy Story” movies. It’s also very noticeable that Andy used a lot of cardboard to create this colorful BBQ restaurant.
In this wild, western setting, you can find a steam train supported by colored pencils, a suspiciously impressive house of cards, and game boards featuring beloved characters from the “Toy Story” films. To fill the stands of his 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!Disney Parks Blog
According to Disney Parks Blog, Disney Pixar Animation Studios helped design the restaurant’s artwork that can’t be found anywhere else.
What we are really excited about with bringing these toys, games, and sets to the park is the collaboration with our pals at Disney Pixar Animation Studios to design figures unique to this restaurant and artwork that can only be found at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Imagineers worked closely with animators and designers at the renowned animation studio to bring characters and art from the films to life in new ways unique to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. They even designed full comic strips about Woody’s adventures, which Andy has used as part of the dining room ceiling!Disney Parks Blog
Unfortunately, this announcement doesn’t bring a firm opening date, but at least we have a timeline, and we got a first look at what the inside will look like. When in Spring 2023 do you think this restaurant will open? Let us know in the comments.
