We’re getting our first look at the land clearing and overall footprint of the upcoming Roundup Rodeo BBQ table service restaurant coming to Toy Story Land. The photos come from @bioreconstruct on Twitter and give us a great idea of what to expect with the expansion to Toy Story Land.
The restaurant will be located in an expansion plot on the right side of the Woody welcome sign at Toy Story Land and continue to theme of Andy’s Backyard, showcasing oversized toys and vibrant colors.
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.
This immersive restaurant will surround guests with a kaleidoscope of toys, games, and playsets, providing yet another unique, fun, family-friendly dining experience that could only be had in Toy Story Land.
As you can see in the photos below, the space is quite expansive, and takes over a space previously used for “bungalows” or office trailers.
Here’s a closer look at the latest work. While Disney hasn’t officially commented on where the entrance to the restaurant will be, it’s possible that the entrance will be before you even reach the Woody entrance marquee to Toy Story Land. As you can see below, the pavement actually heads towards what is currently a backstage gate before the pavement even transitions to the brown color seen in Toy Story Land proper.
Disney has not announced an opening date for Roundup Rodeo BBQ.
Our thanks again to @bioreconstruct for the wonderful photos!
