Disney is now forced to get rid of a fun experience thanks to Guest behavior

Disney is now forced to get rid of a fun experience thanks to Guest behavior

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

Well, we can’t say we did not see that one coming.

Roundup Rodeo BBQ is a table-service restaurant located in Toy Story Land. This marks the first table-service restaurant and the second dining location in the land. Woody’s LunchBox opened with the land in 2018.

As you may suspect by the name, this restaurant serves up hearty meats and several flavorful sides. While this is not a character meal, it is prix fixe. That means you pay one price and receive as many plates as you desire. Pricing is $45/adult ages 10 and up and $25/child ages 3-9.

See what Disney did right and what they did wrong with the restaurant in this review.

Fun Experiences

The restaurant is essentially like stepping into the queue of Toy Story Mania. They do a few short audio sequences, including an “Andy’s coming!” which is really cute. 

Additionally, they have stick horses for kids to play with during the meal, coloring sheets and pencils, and a giant pen to use when it’s time to sign the check! These are really fun elements that we feel entertains kids and adds some fun shenanigans to the experience.

Rest In Peace, Giant Pen

During a visit to the restaurant in late April, we did not receive one of the giant pens to sign checks with. We thought perhaps it was just a one-off thing at first.

Then, we dined there again this past weekend, and we were not given pen again. Cast Members share there are not enough pens to go around anymore because Guests have been stealing them from the restaurant.

You may remember Guests were stealing the sporks from Docking Bay 7 and selling them online for a huge markup. Disney then made sporks available to purchase at Docking Bay 7. We are hopeful Disney may do the same with the giant pens at Roundup Rodeo BBQ.

Be honest: did you take a giant pen? Let us know in the comments below! Also be sure to share this post with a friend who was hoping to use the giant pen during a future visit.

Hey Robin, When the last president won the election, I assume you are referring to the blowhard Trump, where were these morals when the rioting, burning of cars, beating up people? The only political agenda for the next four years was a rallying cry to.... "Get Trump Out!!" So stuff your opinion, your ilk only detracts from any forward movement for the people that comprise our tarnished nation. The hatred of one political group for another was not the building block that our forefathers wanted to happen....the Brits made life miserable and a revolution evolved occurred. Your party is dispicable, blaming everyone else, not taking responsibility or remembering the rioting, burning and beatings of citizens that did not conform to your idiocy. Religious cults are formed by hatred and threat of death if one does not conform. Shame on you and all of the others that comprise a political cult.

The last president was #45. Which sounds about right.

I am sure that the Multi-Billion dollar company will go bankrupt over some over sized pens. Especially at the price they are charging for the food there. Why not just raise the price by $2 per person and let you keep the pens, as a take home Souvenir of your experience?
