While visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios recently, we noticed that more theming has been added to the Roundup Rodeo BBQ entrance. If you haven’t heard, Roundup Rodeo BBQ is a new table-service restaurant coming to Toy Story Land in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Roundup Rodeo BBQ opens March 23rd and reservations are now open. The restaurant will add some much-needed dining capacity to the land and park and build out an area of Toy Story Land that was previously budget cut. Although the restaurant specifically wasn’t necessarily in the plans, the venue uses an expansion area near the entrance to the land that was going to be shops as seen in the lower right portion of the concept art below.
Going back to our recent visit, we can see some new theming has been added to the entrance of the restaurant. A previously blank wall now features a decal showcasing a “Triceratops Pull Toy” and features drawings of Jessie and Trixie.
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.
