Jan 03, 2020 in "Regal Eagle Smokehouse"

Disney is continuing its drive to bring well known characters to Epcot, with Sam Eagle playing a key part in the new Regal Eagle Smokehouse.

Sam Eagle will be featured in the restaurant's entry sign, pictured above.

According to Disney, "Regal Eagle Smokehouse will be the site for “Sam’s Centennial Cook-Off: A Salute to All Cook-Offs but Mostly Barbecue.” Guests will be the beneficiaries of this contest – described as “a competition fit for all patriots and pit masters” – as it brings in a variety of classic backyard barbecue selections from across the country to vie for Sam’s top honor."

The restaurant will also carry a range of merchandise featuring Sam Eagle.

The new eatery, currently under construction, will open this winter in the American Adventure pavilion.
