According to Disney Parks Blog,

Using his imagination, Woody’s Roundup toys, and other playthings, Andy has built a rodeo restaurant for all his pals. We are excited for guests to enter the dining room and discover just how much fun Andy had creating a rollicking place for honorary toys to enjoy barbecue-inspired comfort foods served family-style, with platters of house-smoked meats, a roundup of sides and some miniature sweet surprises along the way.

In this wild, western setting, you can find a steam train supported by colored pencils, a suspiciously impressive house of cards, and game boards featuring beloved characters from the “Toy Story” films. To fill the stands of his rodeo arena, Andy has decorated the cardboard box with hand-drawn audience members! The dining room also features the rodeo’s star performers: Jessie, Trixie, and Bo Peep with her leapin’ sheep Billy, Goat, and Gruff!

The barbeque restaurant’s exact menu is still unknown but will undoubtedly provide a family-style dining experience worthy of the western establishments that came before it, such as the Diamond Horshoe and the Hoop Dee Doo Revue.

For those Guests visiting earlier in the year, the grilled cheese quick service option, Woody’s Lunch Box, will still be open, offering open-air seating next to Toy Story Mania that gives Guests amazing views of the Slinky Dog Dash.
