Chicken Guy! Grand Opening at Walt Disney World

Even though Chicken Guy! has been open at Disney Springs for a while, the official grand opening took place on Thursday, August 30. On hand for the occasion were the two creative forces behind the new eatery; Celebrity Chef Guy Fieri and Restauranteur Robert Earl. The two teamed up for the new menu at Planet Hollywood, and now they are working together again on Chicken Guy!


The premise behind Chicken Guy! is that they want to serve food that provides, according to Earl, “value, variety, and quality”. Part of the reason why they decided on a chicken place is because it is easy to keep the costs down, since chicken is relatively inexpensive. The chicken is first cooked in a pressure cooker, and then it is either fried or grilled. You can order your chicken as tenders, in sandwiches, or as part of a salad.

One thing that makes Chicken Guy! unique is the sauces. There are 22 to choose from! They range from sweet to hot. If you want more sauce or want to try another while you’re there, you don’t have to get back in line. Employees with belts filled with sauce containers make the rounds, pouring more sauce as needed. I chatted briefly with Robert Earl, who told me that his two favorite sauces are barbecue and Guy’s Special Sauce. He prefers the sweet sauces over the hot ones.

Another aspect of Chicken Guy! is Flavortown. Featured are milkshakes in creative flavors such as Triple Double Mint and Cinnamon Apple. The shakes currently cost $4.99, and are larger than you might think.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
