After months of anticipation, Disney’s Hollywood Studios is almost ready to open Roundup Rodeo BBQ, even revealing pricing and opening up dining reservations today.
The new Toy Story Land restaurant set in Andy’s backyard invites Guests to “Chow down on house-smoked meats, a roundup of sides, sweet surprises, and more” in a western-themed restaurant built from toys, games, and playsets. Guests will find classic characters like Sheriff Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and more in the toy rodeo area as they experience the Walt Disney World Resort from a toy’s-eye view!
Previously, we covered sneak peeks at the restaurant’s childlike interior and facade for the family-style dining location, which opens on March 23. According to the Disney Parks Blog, Guests can enjoy a delightful selection of barbecue favorites all for a fixed price, similar to the format for Trail’s End at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.
Because the location is considered themed dining, the price point is a bit higher than other locations around the Park, but it offers Guests unique experiences, unlike any other restaurant. On average, at Disney Parks, a family meal costs between $35 to $59.99 per adult, depending on the type of location (sit-down versus quick-service versus character dining).
As listed on the Walt Disney World website, to enjoy dinner as one of Andy’s “honorary toys,” Guests will pay $45 per adult and $25 per child, with additional expenses factored in for tax and gratuity. (Roundup Rodeo BBQ defines a child as any Guest ages three to nine.) So, what will this higher price point get you on your next visit to Andy’s Backyard?
Well, the Roundup Rodeo lunch and dinner menus start with the Prospector’s Homemade Cheddar Biscuits served with sweet pepper jelly, followed by three greens options: Tomato Salad, Rex’s Romaine and Kale Salad, and Watermelon Salad. Next, entrees include a choice of barbecued meat, such as Evil Dr. Smoked Ribs, Buttercup’s Beef Brisket, There’s a Sausage in My Boot spiced pork sausage, or BBQ Chicken – with Style!
However, a plant-based dining menu is also available upon request, featuring three selections, Slow-smoked Cauliflower, Oven-roasted “Bratwurst,” and IMPOSSIBLE “Rib Chop.” In addition, Guests choose between multiple sides (The Married Spuds, Force Field Fried Pickles, Slinky Doooooooooog Mac & Cheese, Buckin’ Baked Beans, Cowpoke Corn on the Cob, Mean Old Potato Salad, Campfire-roasted Vegetables, or Veggie Slaw), and desserts (Cupcake à la Forky, Lemon and Blueberry Cheesecake, Billy’s Chocolate Silk Pie, Goat’s Apple Pie, or the plant-based Gruff’s Peach-Strawberry Pie).
There are also signature cocktails with fun Pixar inspirations and non-alcoholic options for all ages, like the Partysaurus Rex! Guests can begin making advanced dining reservations soon but must also have valid theme park admission and same-day reservations for everyone in their party over the age of three.
