Big Thunder Barbecue Outdoor restaurant in Big Thunder Ranch at Disneyland, opened on December 14, 1986. It was a unique eating place at the park with all the seating outdoors and the barbecued beef and chicken served from chuck wagons. It changed its name and theme on June 20, 1996, to become Festival of Foods. It reverted to Big Thunder Barbecue on May 30, 1997, and remained open until January 20, 2001. It reopened in 2009 as Celebration Roundup and Barbecue. It is scheduled to close on Jan. 10, 2016, to make way for a new Star Wars-themed land.
