Walt Disney World Offering Woody’s Roundup Barbecue Buffet on July 4th

Walt Disney World announced a new barbecue event for 4th of July!  This event will be held at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and is called Woody’s Roundup.  The event is a barbecue buffet that will feature Toy Story characters and fun.  It will be offered July 4th through 6th.  Sarge will greet guests as they arrive before being greeted by the hosts, dressed in western attire.  The room will be filled with rustic camp time playsets, and guests will get to meet characters like Woody, Jessie and Bullseye.  Buzz Lightyear will also be there with his own playtime zone.  There will be fun backdrops and props to bring the theme of the event to life.

While dining, guests will get to enjoy some of Woody’s favorite tunes played by the DJ at the event.  There will be activities for the kiddos like Trick Ropin’ Toy, Make-Your-Own Toy Station, camp-style carnival games, and a larger-than-life balloon artist who can recreate your favorite Toy Story characters.  Of course guests will also get to end the evening with a viewing of the fireworks show performed at Magic Kingdom Park.

The event will only be offered July 4th through July 6th from 6:15 PM to 9:15 PM at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.  The tickets are $149 for adults and $99 for children (ages 3 to 9), which taxes and gratuity included.  We are hearing reports that the event has already sold out, but be sure to keep trying and keep a look out since you never know if you might get lucky enough to score a spot.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
