When Toy Story Land opened in 2018, a lot of Guests were surprised that there was no store within the new area. The official explanation was that there was no reason for Andy to have a store in his backyard. It looks like Andy has changed his mind, because Jessie’s Trading Post is coming to Toy Story Land!
The store will open sometime in 2022. The land’s new restaurant, Roundup Rodeo BBQ, will also open later this year. Chris Beatty shared more about both with Disney Parks Blog, including the clever backstory for the new merchandise location:
Yee-haw, attention all honorary toys! After enjoying a rollicking ride through Toy Story Mania!, you will soon be treated to a new experience that is filled to the brim with fun. Andy discovered Jessie’s Trading Post playset tucked away in the attic, and is bringing it downstairs to set up shop—full of the coolest toys and finest souvenirs handpicked by the rootinest, tootinest cowgirl.
Also coming in 2022 to Andy’s backyard is the previously announced Roundup Rodeo BBQ restaurant! In this unique, fun, family-friendly dining experience, guests will enjoy delicious barbecue fare while surrounded by a kaleidoscope of toys, games, and playsets that Andy has brought together to create his one-of-a-kind rodeo.
Stepping into the lobby and waiting area, guests experience first-hand what it feels like to be one of Andy’s honorary toys, before progressing into two larger dining room spaces where Andy’s rodeo takes place. Here, the rodeo will be in full swing, with western town and train station playsets mixing with surprising, playful details, like some fan-favorite Pixar characters as they’ve never been seen before!
Stay tuned for more details about all the new playset fun coming this year to Toy Story Land during the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration!
