Sloppily Installed Flat Attempts to Address Sightline Issues for Roundup Rodeo BBQ in Toy Story Land

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 Blog Mickey for the original post...

A newly installed scenic flat has been installed on the roof of the Roundup Rodeo BBQ restaurant in Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The flat, presumably, attempts to address sightline issues from within Toy Story Land when looking toward the Roundup Rodeo BBQ restaurant. Guests used to be able to see the former Feature Animation building in the distance as a result of removed foliage for the Roundup Rodeo BBQ restaurant. Here’s a look at the view before and after the flat was installed.

Here are some more photos of the flat, starting back toward Woody’s Lunch Box quick service restaurant, and walking toward the restaurant.

While the flat is probably effective, it was unfortunately installed sloppily, with a piece of the support protruding past the edge of the flat. As we were walking, we thought that it was a building behind that was peeking out, but it has proven to be a steel support.

Hopefully this isn’t the final look, but it’s hard to tell because this particular flat was not included in the concept art and possibly added as a bandaid once sightlines from within the land proved to be unacceptable.

Roundup Rodeo BBQ Story

Discover what it feels like to be one of Andy’s honorary toys. At Roundup Rodeo BBQ, you will be surrounded by Andy’s rodeo at play––everything from western towns and train station playsets. Plus, take a gander at images of popular characters, including a larger-than-life display of Jessie riding on the back of a Trixie pull toy! You can also view a scene of Bo Peep and her sheep posed to perform in the rodeo.

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 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.

Roundup Rodeo BBQ opens March 23rd at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
