You can always expect something new to be in the works at the Most Magical Place on Earth, and this latest project is for the barbecue lovers! Disney has announced a new fast-casual barbecue restaurant will be debuting at The American Adventure pavilion in World Showcase later this year.

The restaurant will be named Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue and will take the place of Liberty Inn. The former quick-service location closed on July 8, 2019 to make way for the all-new mouth-watering experience coming to Epcot!

The new restaurant location will be a modern barbecue smokehouse complete with all the accompanying flavors, sounds, sights, and smells you’d expect. The venue will include a large smoker preparing the delicious dishes every day inside the grand pavilion’s promenade! Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue will also feature a redesigned patio area for guests to sit back, relax, and enjoy their brews and barbecue with an Epcot view. 

No opening date for this all-new barbecue restaurant has been announced yet, but we have a feeling that exciting updates will continue to emerge over the next few months! For now, be sure to swing by The American Adventure pavilion to enjoy the Voices of Liberty and the American Adventure stage show.
