A Salute to All Nations, But Mostly American Barbecue!

Sam Eagle of The Muppets will soon be the face of a new restaurant in Epcot’s America Pavilion. Epcot’s Liberty Inn closed its doors last summer so Disney could refurbish and rebrand the dining area. The America Pavilion’s new dining option is going to be Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Beers and Barbecue. Sam Eagle has entertained Muppets fans for years with his deadpan humor and for being their most patriotic Muppet character. To see more of a Muppets presence in the Disney Parks is delightful news!

The Regal Eagle Smokehouse will operate as a fast-casual restaurant and feature classic American barbecue. The new dining experience is also going to carry specialty craft beer. If the goal is to make this a classic American dining experience, then the inclusion of Sam Eagle makes perfect sense. The new restaurant will be the site of “Sam’s Centennial Cook-Off: A Salute to All Cook-Offs but Mostly Barbecue.” This theme will treat guests as if they are visiting a cook-off competition with a menu of various barbecue offerings. Furthermore, the Regal Eagle Smokehouse will also sell merchandise. Sam Eagle will be featured on some of their new merchandise, so it’ll be interesting to see what’s to come!
