Last night we went to Woody’s Round Up!

I had been looking forward to this event since we signed up for it and it was well worth the wait.

I pulled some details directly from the WDW website which can also be found here.

This event included character meet and greets, crafts, games, balloon artists, a trick roping demonstration, a HUGE buffet, alcohol, and fireworks to end the night.

We met Woody, Buzz, Jessie, and BULLSEYE (who I hadn’t met before). Bo Peep was there as well but her line was super long so we opted out of it.

The food was much better than I expected. There was tons of bbq food — chicken, ribs, potato salad, corn bread etc. There were 2 sides of the same buffet but one of the sides included the kid's food option (chicken tenders, hot dogs, tater tots).

There were 4 BARS and the lines were never long for those so that was a great thing to see!

The longest waits I witnessed were for the balloon artists and Jessie&Bullseye / Bo Peep.

Buzz and Woody are out the entire night but Jessie & Bullseye / Bo Peep rotate.

Our night ended with reserved firework viewing right outside the convention center. We could see the fireworks so well from this spot and it really felt like some of them were right above us. Since we were there for the 4th, we got to see the Disney’s Celebrate America!—A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky fireworks!

The only issues with the night were the lack of games (there were only 2 so the lines got long) and the balloon artists. Some of them were a lot more skilled than others so you’d wait in line for 30 minutes FOR A BALLOON and then find out you couldn’t get what you wanted.

I think the value was great for adults but I think the $100 price for kids was a lot. Overall, it was a really great event and I’d do something similar if it was offered.

Let me know if you have any questions about this event!
