Barbecue and Toy-Sized Fun Coming to Toy Story Land Spring 2023!

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Disney Parks for the original post...

Andy’s backyard is getting ready for more toys! Roundup Rodeo BBQ will open in Spring 2023 to welcome guests for delicious barbecue and toy-sized fun. We’re excited to share more details about the world’s first “Toy Story” table service restaurant, coming to Toy Story Land in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Here’s a closer look at Roundup Rodeo BBQ, and how Imagineers collaborated with Disney Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney World Food & Beverage to design this one-of-a-kind dining experience. 

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.

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!

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!
