Roundup Rodeo BBQ construction - September 18 2022
Posted: Monday September 19, 2022 9:49am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Exterior construction is once again underway at Roundup Rodeo BBQ restaurant in Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Scaffolding is up at the front of the building as preparations are being made to install the marquee signage.

Various permits have been filed recently to install themed facades, which looks to be what we are seeing being readied here.

Originally planned to open in 2020 and delayed by the pandemic, the Roundup Rodeo BBQ will be located near the entrance of Toy Story Land and will be a table service offering. Disney said earlier this year that Roundup Rodeo BBQ will open in 2022.

Stepping into the lobby and waiting area, guests will experience first-hand what it feels like to be one of Andy's honorary toys, before progressing into two larger dining room spaces where Andy's rodeo takes place. Here, the rodeo will be in full swing, with western town and train station playsets mixing with surprising, playful details, like some fan-favorite Pixar characters as they've never been seen before.

The current kitchen for this place is a joke

Can't believe they even underbuilt the kitchen as well seating area. The budget cuts to this land were such a joke.

I can't wait for the 2024 D23 Expo when they bring Tom Hanks and Tim Allen out on stage to announce that this restaurant will open in Summer 2025.

When it's a money maker. Like a new restaurant, shop, or hotel; Disney sure makes them pop up fast. Then attractions take 3-6 years to come to fully develop. As everyone knows, they only care about the bottom dollar now-a-days.

I'm hoping this is as large *seating wise* as it looks from the outside. They have to stop criminally underbuilding these theme park restaurants

really wish they had built the mini western town facade like in concept art, could have included a quick serve window and some shaded seating out in front as well maybe. regardless, this will be a major upgrade to TSL when its done, that aloing with the ther small modifications and additions happening tls is shaping up to be a better land

They’ll need to accelerate if they want this open by 2026.
