TikToker Trevor Cottrell (@trevorcc_) recently shared a video of himself sneaking leftover meat from Roundup Rodeo BBQ in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort. Since the family-style table service dining experience doesn’t offer takeout containers, Cottrell improvised:

@trevorcc_ Cant say this is a shinning moment of mine but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do #waltdisneyworld #hollywoodstudios #annualpassholder #disneyhacks ♬ original sound – Trevor Cottrell

The clever Guest filled his refillable popcorn bucket with the leftovers and immediately took them home! Hundreds of commenters praised Cottrell’s ingenuity.

“Note to self- pack tupperware for our Hollywood Studios day,” said @caitlinwynne1.

“They had no takeout boxes at [‘Ohana] last week and I was so irritated,” @robpswife wrote. “*bring buckets and ziplocks*.”

“It honestly made me so mad that they will not do take out boxes,” @rachgroms agreed. “The amount of food waste was infuriating for a company that preaches sustainability.”

Still, some felt Cottrell’s actions would ruin the experience for others in the future.

“Delete this now before they catch on and change rules,” @mattwelsh said.

“It’s an all you care to eat not all you care to take,” @kl_flocco argued.

Currently, no official rule forbids taking food you purchase from restaurants at Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Disney Springs. But it’s best to follow Disney Cast Member instructions when dining at the Disney Parks.

“Rustle up some tasty BBQ fare at this western-themed restaurant where you’ll see the world through the eyes of Andy’s toys,” the official Walt Disney World restaurant description reads. “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. Grab a meal and enjoy a whimsical kaleidoscope of toys, games and playsets!”

  1. This is about taking food out of all you can eat restaurants. I believe as long as you do not get seconds on any of food your original portions should be yours to take
