As with ADRs, Walt Disney World has not but launched pricing for Toy Story Roundup Rodeo BBQ.
If we needed to guess primarily based on pricing at House 220 and Be Our Visitor Restaurant, we’d count on grownup pricing to be $55 and youngsters pricing to be $29. It could possibly be as excessive as $39 for teenagers and $59 for adults. Something larger than that might shock us. Though it’s “solely” BBQ (versus these extra bold prix fixe menus), Toy Story Roundup Rodeo BBQ is all-you-can-eat delicacies, served family-style–so there can be premium pricing for that.
When it comes to further background (that you simply most likely already know for those who’ve been following the extended building of this Toy Story Land addition), Roundup Rodeo BBQ Restaurant is positioned to the proper of what’s at the moment the doorway of Toy Story Land, behind the large Woody determine and land’s marquee (you’ll be able to see building partitions within the picture beneath).
In our most up-to-date building replace, we famous that building employees have been placing the ending touches on the outside facade of the restaurant. We’re beginning to see seen indicators of this, because the restaurant marquee and different particulars have been put in of the outside of the constructing, which is now behind building scrims. It’s progressed considerably since we shared that–the facade is now coming alive and beginning to resemble the idea artwork on the prime of the submit.
This new desk service restaurant ought to assist deal with most of the points we’ve had with Toy Story Land. It’s at the moment fairly depressing in the course of the summer time warmth or every day rain showers because of the lack of shade or shelter. Giving friends even a brief reprieve from the solar or storms in a spot that isn’t the restrooms could be good. So from a purely purposeful or role-filling perspective, Toy Story Roundup BBQ Restaurant is an effective addition.
The menu at Toy Story Roundup BBQ Restaurant truly seems higher than I used to be anticipating, though I’ve to confess that my expectations had been fairly low. I figured this may mainly be a desk service model of Regal Eagle’s Distinctly Patriotic Smokehouse: A Salute to All Meals, However Principally Barbecued Meats. It seems like a step up from that. (Granted, these are inventory photographs and what’s truly served might look significantly totally different.)
Design and ambition-wise, Roundup Rodeo BBQ Restaurant does completely nothing for me. It seems largely phoned in, however truthfully, I really feel that method about a lot of the assorted Toy Story Lands. Clearly, I’m within the minority on this–I get that. I simply assume that Toy Story is thematic low-hanging fruit, and could possibly be so significantly better than what Imagineering has delivered up to now.
This appears like extra of the identical on that entrance. Not that I wish to see yet one more Toy Story Land pop up someplace, however I actually want Imagineering got the funds to do certainly one of these lands correct justice so followers see simply how significantly better this idea might truly be if its full inventive potential had been reached.
In any other case, about my solely considered Toy Story Roundup BBQ Restaurant is, “why not have an elaborately themed Pizza Planet as a substitute?!” I’m guessing the reply to that’s storytelling consistency. My retort to that response could be: “who cares.” Critically, it’s not like Toy Story Land at DHS is the top of themed design.
This isn’t Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge…break the foundations! It might be fairly straightforward to concoct a storytelling contrivance to elucidate away the presence of Pizza Planet in “Andy’s Yard,” if Imagineering really needed to construct the higher restaurant. However that ship has sailed, so no must proceed fixating on it.
In any case, we’re simply glad that Toy Story Roundup Rodeo BBQ will lastly open on March 23, 2023. As long as we’re capable of safe one, we’ll be reserving an Advance Eating Reservation for opening evening–or shortly thereafter–so keep tuned for a full restaurant overview coming quickly.
However don’t need on one earlier than reserving your individual ADRs–as famous above, this restaurant will guide up 60+ days forward of time!
