PHOTOS, VIDEO: First Look Inside Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue; Opens Tomorrow at EPCOT

In a new video, Disney has revealed that Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts and Barbecue will open tomorrow, February 19th, at EPCOT. Here’s a first look at the interior:

Not only will patriotic Muppet Sam the Eagle serve as host, but there will also be posters celebrating the different styles of barbecue sauce that guests can enjoy at the restaurant. (Truly, our rich variety of barbecue sauces is part of what makes America great.)

We also got a look at some of the items that will be served on specialty place mats. And be rest assured, WDWNT will be there to try out what they’re cooking up!

Since Sam is in charge, this is “a salute to ALL cook-offs but mostly barbecue,” referencing his classic line in Muppet*Vision 3D!

We also got to see some of the knick-knacks that adorn the restaurant, including a pig-shaped trophy celebrating the “Appalachian Cook-Off Champion.” (Let’s hope Miss Piggy doesn’t stop by for a bite.)

And you can enjoy all of these looks, along with an interview between Walt Disney World Resort President, Josh D’Amaro and Senior Vice President of Operations, Jim MacPhee, and the pitmasters that will open Regal Eagle Smokehouse on Wednesday, in the full video below!
