Deciding where to eat on your Disney World vacation is about to get a LOT harder…we think!
Roundup Rodeo BBQ is opening up in Disney’s Hollywood Studios this year, and although we don’t have an official opening date yet — we can’t wait to check it out! We’ve been keeping up with the construction progress at this new table service spot, and now it’s time to take another look!
Toy Story Land is home to all things, well, toys — and the new table-service restaurant coming to this area is no different. Roundup Rodeo BBQ will transport guests to a rodeo arena created by Andy himself. He’s taken a few of his favorite games and play sets to set the scene, along with some very familiar toys — and things are moving along! We’ve spotted NEW drawings on the outside of the restaurant.
Here’s a closer look. We can see Jessie, Wheezy, and Bo Peep drawn on in what looks like crayon — which keeps up with the theme that this is a pretend restaurant made by Andy out of a cardboard box and toys!
We can see more of the drawing from this angle, along with some additional accents like checkered and star toothpick flags, Tinker Toys, lanterns, and more.
Roundup Rodeo BBQ will take guests on a rootin’ tootin’ dining experience in a new play area that Andy created for those hungry rodeo cowboys and cowgirls surrounded by western toys and other items (cardboard cutouts, stickers, lights, blocks, and more). Guests will dine among western-themed play sets while “rodeo festivities” take place.
Originally, Disney had shared that Roundup Rodeo BBQ would open by the end of 2022, but as we inch closer to that date — it was becoming clear they might not meet that deadline. Now we know the restaurant will open sometime in spring 2023.
