Last Sunday, I had the opportunity to eat at Walt Disney World’s newest restaurant, the Roundup Rodeo in Hollywood Studios. This new restaurant is tucked away in the corner entrance of the Toy Story area of the park, conveniently located behind Woody himself. This was a highly coveted reservation, and he honestly had no problem getting a reservation before it opened.
Outside the restaurant, members of the cast are greeted by calling your party for a certain story. The open doors and ubiquitous air conditioning keep guests entertained from the Florida heat. The theme of the restaurant is on point and immersive. Outside, Andy sits with a large belt buckle waiting for his return, and guests are repeatedly reminded to hear “Ady’s coming” as a warning. This happened once when we were in a restaurant, and it was adorable. Everyone stops to be instructed in uncertain matters and observes the “all clear” to speak and repeat.
My daughter and I had a two-seater table near the back of the restaurant. Our waitress, Krystal, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. He ordered our drinks and brought out the food.
It’s kind of familiar, but you have to make some choices. We both drank the specials, nonalcoholic drinks off the menu (extra cost) Partysaurai Tex and Molly Iced Tea. Make hot drinks and eat them with the meal as well. Partysaurus Tex is strawberry lemonade with gummy worms (from Andy’s garden) on top. Molly Frozen Ice Tea is a delightfully sweet lemonade iced tea just like Arnold Palmer.
The fame of the cookies! Prospector’s Homemade Cheddar Biscuits with Sweet Pepper Gelato are delicious! I’m not all into Sweet Pepper Gelato, but I hope others like it. These cookies are memorable and delicious.
The first course of the dinner is a trio of salads, Weezy Watermelon Salad, Rootin’ Tootin’ Tomato Salad, and Real Romaine and Kale Salad. I tried all three and they were fresh and delicious. Personally, my favorite salad trio was the Romaine and Kale Salad. It contains fresh green apples, romaine, kale, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, and a beautiful green goddess salad. My daughter loved the Weezy Watermelon Salad that included fresh mint.
Guests at the family-style restaurant can choose four sides for their table to share from eight options. They include:
- Medium Old Potato Salad
- Married Spuds (loaded potato barrels)
- Claw! veggie slaw
- Force Field Fried Salsa
- Campfire roasted vegetables
- Slinky Dog Mac & Cheese
- Buckin Baked Beans
- Cowpoke corn in Cob
Spouse Spuds, Force Field Fried Pickles, Slinky Dog Mac & Cheese, and Cowpoke Corn Cob. Spuds are delicious paired with cheese and another green sauce that is incredibly delicious. cis to recommend me
God Field’s Fried Pickles were consigned to oblivion. They weren’t calamari nor the best-fried jasmine ever. I want to jump from here.
Creamy and cheesy Slinky Mac & Cheese dog – everything you want in Mac & Cheese. Additionally, the spiral pasta just adds to the theme. Over Mac & Cheese Crushed Goldfish Crackers. They were so worth adding. Mac & Chese is kid-approved by my daughter.
Lastly, we had the Cowpoke Corn on the Cob which is very similar to Elote which is Mexican corn sown in semolina with Queso Fresca and corn spices. If you like the seeds in the manna, I advise you from here. It wasn’t my favorite, but it was a solid choice.
A day to eat!
Let the meat come out in a round pan, enough for the table. You can always ask for more. Included in the pot: Costis Mal Dr. Smoked Beef, Buttercup Brisket, There’s Sausage in My Boot, and BBQ Chicken. It should be noted that a plant-based option is available with a plant-based grill including: Cauliflower Wrestles, Scrumptious Bratwurst, and Rib Roarin Chop Rip. The menu stated that you can also order Cedar Plank Salmon.
I read in other blogs that dry meat and all the sauce that was on the table should be used to eat. I have not found this to be the case. Honestly, my two favorite foods were the BBQ Chicken and Dr. Malus. They were moving their ribs. Both were very tasty, not dry, and paired well with all the goodies on the table. The Beef Brisket and Sausage were delicious as well.
If you weren’t already stuffed, the table is coming to your table. You have several mini pie-in-the-art options with choices of Goat’s Apple Pie, Bo’s Lemon and Blueberry Cheesecake, Billy’s Chocolate Silk Pie, or Gruff’s Peach-Strawberry Pie. One additional option is Cupcake La Forky, a chocolate cupcake with Forky cookie on top. I had a delicious Goat Lake Pie. My daughter had a Forky Cupcake that was to be admired.
Overall, I found Walt Disney World’s newest restaurant to be fun, family-friendly, and delicious in addition to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. My part of the restaurant is a themed type of “Andy’s Adventure” fun, head of story toys, and indoor theme. If you love Toy Story, this restaurant will not disappoint.
The food was delicious and filling. There are a plethora of options for guests to personalize their meal. I felt that there was an extended period of time between meals if I had to pick something up. Even our table was small for all the dishes on it, but we made it. I would recommend getting a restaurant reservation and giving it a try!
Prices for Lunch and Dinner are $45 for Adults and $25 per child. There are additives to alcoholic beverages and properties.
Just wait to check your mark with the huge brush!
