In a new video posted on the Walt Disney World YouTube channel, we got our first look at what the table settings will look like for the upcoming Roundup Rodeo BBQ restaurant in Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
In the video, Disney food historian Marcy Carriker Smothers takes a look inside the Flavor Lab, where recipes are developed for Walt Disney World restaurants. About four minutes later, we see concept art and serving dishes with “Toy Story” themes spread around a bar, which alludes to the Roundup Rodeo BBQ restaurant.
Generic barbecue photos are featured along with accessories and potential servingware ideas. Ideas on display include a bucket of soldiers, two colors of the iconic Barrel O’ Monkeys from the “Toy Story” movies, and themed condiment dispenser wrappers designed to look like cardboard designs. There is also a concept of incorporating Forky in some form.
Potted mugs and other Southern-style serving dishes are also on display to help get an idea of what table settings will look like.
We can also see china made to look like paper plates at the restaurant, keeping the theme with Toy Story Land set in Andy’s backyard.
Although the chef is coy about it, at the end of the video it is indeed confirmed that these concepts are for Roundup Rodeo BBQ.
The new restaurant is supposed to open this year, although an exact opening date was never provided and we are nearing the end of 2022.
You can watch the full video in Disney’s Flavor Lab above.
