Just about five years ago, Walt Disney World Resort brought Guests into the heart of one of its most popular Pixar movies — Toy Story. Toy Story Land opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2018, and Guests were able to ride not only Toy Story Mania!, but also Alien Swirling Saucers and Slinky Dog Dash, a fun and exciting roller coaster. In addition to the fun attractions, the food was on another level. Guests could enjoy homemade toaster cakes and loaded tots from Woody’s Lunch Box as they took in everything in Andy’s backyard.

Then, in 2019, Disney shared that it would be opening another fantastic dining location in the new land! Woody’s Roundup Rodeo BBQ would offer Guests some of the most popular BBQ dishes around. Sadly, Walt Disney World Resort had to close in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so construction on the new restaurant, as well as the opening, had to be delayed.
