Jarrod Fairclough – Well, this is weird news to start the year off with, but it’s certainly welcome – Sam the Eagle is getting his own restaurant at Walt Disney World!
According to WDWNT, the Liberty Inn in Epcot is being rethemed to the Regal Eagle Smokehouse, a barbeque joint with a twist – it’s hosted by Sam the Eagle. Apparently the patriotic bird will host a centennial cook of, a salue to all cook offs… most mostly barbeque.
We have no idea what else is in store for the restaurant, aside from this, nor when it’s opening. The concept art shows no Muppet theming, so it’s possible that it will be relegated to the inside, and may just be some easter eggs, maybe an animatronic or a video. Still, it’s nice to see Disney giving The Muppets more presence at the parks, with Great Moments in American History getting an encore last month.
Now, who do we talk to about a Gonzo Cannon Coaster?
