Disney World Sets Spring Opening for Toy Story Restaurant

December 14, 2022, 7:12 PM · Walt Disney World's first Toy Story-themed sit-down restaurant will open at Disney's Hollywood Studios next spring, Disney confirmed today.

Roundup Rodeo BBQ will open sometime in spring 2023 in Toy Story Land. In keeping with the "Andy's backyard" theme and backstory for the land, this rodeo arena is Andy's creation, with toys and "kid-drawn" illustrations decorating the table-service restaurant.

Jessie, Trixie, and Bo Peep’s sheep Billy, Goat, and Gruff take center stage at the rodeo's dining room, where the food will be served family-style. The menu will include "house-smoked meats, a roundup of sides and some miniature sweet surprises along the way," according to Disney.

Roundup Rodeo BBQ joins Magic Kingdom's TRON Lightcycle Run roller coaster on Disney World's calendar of new locations set to open in early 2023. Details to come include the specific opening date for Roundup Rodeo BBQ, as well as opening date for potential reservations.

We've got a trip planned in March and I've got a sneaking suspicion we'll just miss both this and TRON.

Hopefully it’ll take away some of the tourists away from Woody’s Lunch Box. Best eatery in DHS, and still minimal seating availability.

DHS has always had the weakest TS restaurants despite plentiful options. However, this addition does not appear to really improve the table service landscape at DHS with a mediocre concept and menu that sounds like a carbon copy of Regal Eagle over a EPCOT. I get what Imagineers are going for with the designs, theming, and how it incorporates with the overall look of Toy Story Land, but it looks like a cheap, 2-D version of Rainforest/T-Rex Cafe.

I'm totally with you Makorider that Woody's Lunchbox is the best quick serve eatery in DHS (Docking Bay 7 is pretty close, though more expensive by comparison).

Kind of feels like they copy and pasted the Toy Story Mania queue. All the toys in the world, this could have been more creative.
