The Disney Parks Blog described some of the theming inside.
In this wild, western setting, you can find a steam train supported by colored pencils, a suspiciously impressive house of cards, and game boards featuring beloved characters from the “Toy Story” films. To fill the stands of his rodeo arena, Andy has decorated the cardboard box with hand-drawn audience members! The dining room also features the rodeo’s star performers: Jessie, Trixie, and Bo Peep with her leapin’ sheep Billy, Goat, and Gruff!
The theming looks very similar to what’s seen inside the queue for Toy Story Mania, the nearby attraction. Guests expecting hoping for theming, or even character dining, should temper those expectations.
The Toy Story themed BBQ restaurant was originally announced back in 2019, and was expected to open in 2020. That obviously didn’t happen, and since that time the project has seemingly been on the backburner. It’s wild Disney has elected to stretch this project out so long, but we’ll be excited to see it finally open.
