Aerial photos posted by bioreconstruct reveal new construction underway at Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land. Just over three years old now, Disney is righting some wrongs when it comes to dining in Toy Story Land. A new table-service restaurant will debut later this year, adding some much-needed dining capacity to the land along with some whimsy. However, the original dining establishment – Woody’s Lunch Box – is also receiving some work as Disney looks to expand the seating area.
Earlier this year, Disney started construction at Woody’s Lunch Box as they looked to expand the seating area and add some cover to the outdoor quick service location. Theming was quickly added to the construction before it stalled. Now 10+ months into the project, it looks like crews are focusing their attention to a backstage area behind Woody’s Lunch Box, perhaps in support of additional theming or further seating expansion. Here’s an aerial view of the work!
A closer look at the work taking place. The building is shared by Woody’s Lunch Box and the Toy Story Land restrooms, but it’s unlikely that the work taking place backstage is related to the restrooms.
We can see an ‘L’-shaped set of concrete forms as well as various pipes in the backstage area where the construction is taking place. If Disney creates new theming in this area and removes some of the existing trees, they could significantly expand the seating area beyond just the covered area seen on the left side of the image.
The walkway visible on the other side of the construction walls is the exit to Toy Story Mania. Here’s a look at the walls from earlier this year.
Unlike the Roundup Rodeo BBQ restaurant, Disney has not made any announcements with regard to the expansion work underway at Woody’s Lunch Box.
