At the end of May, we told you that the McDonald’s that is near the Disney All-Stars Resorts was almost complete. The old place closed back in October, and that building was demolished. The reimagined and updated McDonald’s is now open, and it is unlike any fast food restaurant that you have ever seen.
You will notice the difference the moment you see the building. The restaurant is powered by the sun, a good part of the roof is made of solar panels. There are plants around the property, giving it an earthy feel. Most of the plants are native to Florida, and they don’t need a lot of water. There is a large outdoor eating area, and you might notice a couple of stationary bikes on the side and one hand bike. These can power the McDonald’s arches on the side of the building! There are plenty of seats outdoors, and some of them are covered.
Inside you will place your order on a touchscreen. Once it’s ready, you can pick it up at the counter. Mobile ordering is also available through the McDonald’s app. An emphasis is placed on recycling. Tables are marked off to allow for social distancing, and hand sanitizer is your “free gift”. There are different designs for the tables, all of them a bit on the modern side.
On one wall there are screens that will give you information about the new restaurant. You can learn facts about the plants, how the parking lot lights are powered, and more. You’ll learn this in a video with lots of information. The icons at the bottom of the screen let you know which aspect of the restaurant is being shared. At one point the presentation states, “This isn’t just a restaurant, it’s a renewable, clean, energy machine!”

The updated restaurant was almost empty while I was there, but that could be because word is not yet out that it is open. This is one place that you will want to stop by on your next Walt Disney World vacation. The kids will have a blast on the bikes, trying to power the sign, and you just might be able to eat a meal in peace. Drive through is also available, so you’ll be able to grab something quickly and then take it back to your resort.
