We’re halfway through 2021 already, and there are still plenty of projects that Disney’s been quiet talking about. And, one of the most anticipated restaurants that hasn’t received too many updates since its announcement is Roundup Rodeo BBQ.
Honestly, some people may have even forgotten it was happening, considering the lack of details compared to other upcoming Disney World attractions, experiences, and more! But, don’t worry — we’re breaking down everything you need to know about the Roundup Rodeo BBQ before its debut in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
When Roundup Rodeo BBQ was initially announced, the newest addition in Toy Story Land was projected to have a 2020 opening date. However, with all the closures that happened last year, its opening was then delayed indefinitely.
Prior to Disney World’s closures, we did see hints that construction had begun on the restaurant as thematic elements and the entrance marquee had started to appear. Prior to the closure, Disney World started construction on the area. We’ve gotten a glimpse at the building that Roundup Rodeo BBQ will be housed inside.
Although we aren’t sure where the entrance will be, the building is under construction behind the entrance of Toy Story Land, which is hidden by trees and walls at the moment. We haven’t been able to track the process since reopening since it is behind walls!
The story behind the restaurant is that guests are dining in a toy rodeo arena created by Andy in his backyard. Diners will be seated inside playsets of a Western town, complete with blocks, fun lighting, and more! The menu, as the name implies, will be filled with barbecue fare. Definitely expect the ultimate family-friendly atmosphere!
We have seen sneak peeks of what the atmosphere will look like once the Toy Story Land table-service restaurant (sit down restaurant) is completed. The concept art shows that guests will be dining in a toy rodeo arena that Andy has built in his backyard. Families will be able to dine on the barbecue fare the Roundup Rodeo BBQ has to offer as they sit inside Western town playsets. It will be an experience with blocks and lighting that allows everyone to shrink to the size of a toy during their meal.
Right now, there is no official opening date for Roundup Rodeo BBQ. BUT, we will let you know when we hear more! And we will update this post with all the details.
While it may seem like Disney World forgot about its Toy Story Land restaurant, as far as we can tell, progress is moving along slowly, but surely. And, we’ll be sure to update you on everything you need to know! Stay tuned with DFB for the latest Disney entertainment and news!
