Step inside Andy’s favorite play set to join in on a hootenanny with Woody’s Roundup. Taking place July 4 – 6, this fun-filled barbecue buffet will be complete with great food, familiar friends, and fun times, all from the comfort of Disney’s Contemporary Resort. It’s a great way to beat the Summertime heat!

What about characters?

As you arrive at the resort, Sarge will be there to greet you to make sure you’re in tip top toy shape and ready for playtime. Buzz Lightyear will even be on hand in his own playtime zone and you can hangout with Sheriff Woody, Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl, and more! Theatrical backdrops, toys, and other fun props will help bring the room to life!

Bring your appetite!

This delicious buffet will feature some of the best barbecue outside of the Wild West.  Feast on mouthwatering beef brisket, low and slow-smoked pork ribs, and grilled boneless chicken with roasted peach coulis, or take a bite out of a fire-roasted vegetable cake served with chipotle succotash. Create the perfect plate with sides including fresh cornbread (served with honey butter – YUM!), sweet cream cole slaw, southern-style potato salad, and grilled vegetables with smoked olive oil.  Vegetarians can chow down on some warm vegetarian campfire chili or mixed greens with balsamic vinaigrette and roasted pepper ranch dressing. In addition, kids can enjoy their own special buffet featuring items like Creamy Mickey Roni Cheese, chicken fingers, and potato barrels.

Did someone say “dessert”?

Try some yummy salted caramel cookie bars, cherry pie shots, or assorted sliced fresh melon. And in celebration of the 4th of July holiday, grab a patriotic Red, White, and Blue Cake Push Pop!

Is there more?

Yes! A rootin’ tootin’ DJ will spin Woody’s favorite tunes from a rustic toy set right in the heart of it all. Kids can go have some fun with activities like the Trick Ropin’ Toy, Make-Your-Own Toy Station, camp-style carnival games, and a larger-than-life balloon artist who can recreate their favorite Toy Story characters. And finally, at the end of the night, you’ll be invited out to the Porte Cochére to end the evening with a viewing of the famous Magic Kingdom Park nighttime spectacular.
