    RUMOR STATUS

    Confirmed

    A new table service restaurant coming to Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The new Roundup Rodeo BBQ restaurant will continue the theme of Andy’s backyard.

    Per the Disney Parks Blog:

    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 Disney•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.

    The restaurant is expected to go towards the entrance of Toy Story Land just beyond the sign at the Animation Courtyard entrance.
