In a new video posted on the Walt Disney World YouTube channel, we got a first look at what 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 restaurants across Walt Disney World. Around four minutes in, we see concept art and serveware with “Toy Story” themes spread across a bar, which alludes to the Roundup Rodeo BBQ restaurant.
Generic photos of barbecue are laid out along with props and potential serveware ideas. Ideas on display include a bucket of soldiers, two colors of the iconic Barrel O’ Monkeys from the “Toy Story” films, and themed condiment dispenser wrappings made to look like drawings on cardboard. There’s also a concept of incorporating Forky in some form or another.
Jar mugs and other southern-style serveware are also on display to help get an idea of what the table settings will look like.
We may also see china designed to look like paper plates at the restaurant, keeping in theme with Toy Story Land being set in Andy’s backyard.
Although the chef is coy about it, at the end of the video it’s indeed confirmed these concepts are for Roundup Rodeo BBQ.
The new eatery is supposed to open sometime this year, although no exact opening date has ever been provided and we’re nearing the end of 2022.
