Walt Disney World has announced some pretty epic news, and more information keeps coming in! We now have more details on three new restaurants coming soon to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot: a new Toy Story restaurant, a space-themed restaurant, and an all-new smokehouse. Here’s what we know so far.
Roundup Rodeo BBQ Restaurant coming soon to Toy Story Land in Disney’s Hollywood Studios
We can’t wait for Toy Story Land to get this all-new dining experience! Roundup Rodeo BBQ Restaurant is an table service location coming in 2020. It invites guests to join in the fun and experience a rootin’, tootin’ rodeo in Andy’s backyard. We don’t yet know the exact opening date, but as soon as we have more details and as soon as reservations are being accepted, we will update you.
Here’s how Disney describes the new restaurant:
Using three cardboard boxes cut and taped together, Andy has created a new rodeo arena using some of his favorite toys, games, and play sets. And while some pieces are definitely western-themed, what makes this rodeo special is the broad assortment of toys that have been brought together to create a fun, colorful mashup-atmosphere that only a child could create.
Once inside, you’ll be surrounded by all of the rodeo festivities in-action as well as western town and train station play sets. And you just might spot some of your favorite Disney•Pixar characters scattered throughout the restaurant in the form of toys and game pieces including a toy version of Jessie riding on the back of a Trixie pull-toy and unique toy versions of Bo Peep and her sheep, all who appear to be performing in the rodeo together.
This immersive restaurant will surround guests with a kaleidoscope of toys, games, and playsets, providing yet another unique, fun, family-friendly dining experience that could only be had in Toy Story Land.
Space 220 Restaurant coming soon to the transformed Future World area at Epcot
We’re so excited for Space 220 to come to Epcot next year! We have been waiting patiently for the space-themed restaurant to come to Future World. We know that Future World is also getting reimagined into three new worlds at Epcot, and so Space 220 will really add to that new immersive atmosphere that we can’t wait to experience in person. It will open this winter at Epcot, although we don’t yet have the exact month and day when it will make its official public debut. But as soon as it’s accepting reservations, we will be sure to let you know!
Here’s how Disney describes Space 220:
When you enter the restaurant, you’ll step into a special space elevator that will take you 220 miles above the earth’s surface and offer incredible celestial views. You’ll feel as if you’re traveling straight up into space to dock next to the Centauri Space Station suspended just beyond the orbit of Mission: SPACE. Upon arrival, you will be guided to your seats past the grow zone, a spinning wall of produce that mimics Earth’s gravity and represents some of the fresh ingredients used by the restaurant’s culinary team.
We don’t know about you, but we think this sounds pretty amazing! Epcot is truly transforming into a more immersive park than ever before — and we can hardly contain our excitement for what’s coming next.
Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue coming soon to The American Adventure at Epcot
Finally, Disney revealed more information about the all-new smokehouse restaurant coming to The American Adventure in Epcot’s World Showcase. Many frequent Walt Disney World visitors are happy to know that this pavilion is finally getting a revamped quick-service dining location. It will serve not only barbecue offerings but also craft brews as well, taking your “drink around the world” experience to a whole new level. There will also be an outdoor bar and seating area for guests to enjoy. We don’t have the exact opening date, but we know it will open this winter.
