Mickey's Backyard BBQ Reportedly to Close

The buffet meal / character experience at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort will reportedly close at the end of the year. 

Ft Wilderness Signage

Website WDWMagic.com is reporting that Mickey's Backyard BBQ will suspend its run on December 31, 2018. The closure is linked to upcoming construction planned for the resort.

Fort Wilderness has been targeted as the future home to Disney Vacation Club villas dating back to 2010. Work on that concept was later suspended, but the concept has been revived in the last few months. Permit applications from February 2018 and May 2018 pave the way for new construction on Fort Wilderness grounds. 

Per WDWMagic, the Backyard BBQ will return at some point in the future. 

Work continues on Disney's Riviera Resort, the fifteenth DVC property. Disney is reportedly targeting a fall 2019 opening, though brisk sales of Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge may prompt an accelleration of original timelines

Thanks to David for the tip!

I wondered if this closure is related to the possible construction of a resort hotel or DVC resort at location of the old water park, River Country.'t I am surprised that they aren't moving the stables as they will be very close to the construction as well.

Sounds like the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue closing was a false rumor.
I didn't really believe it anyway.

So glad to hear Allears was wrong. I love that Revue.

Hi Diana, I'm from All Ears. We never reported anything about Hoop Dee Doo or the Backyard BBQ closing because nothing's been officially announced. If you could let me know where you saw that information attributed to AllEars.net that would really be helpful. Thanks so much!
