Chicken Guy! grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony

Celebrity Chef Guy Fieri joined restauranteur Robert Earl, Disney Executives and Mickey Mouse to officially open Chicken Guy! at Disney Springs yesterday.

On hand to officially welcome Chicken Guy! to the Disney Springs family were Matt Simon, Vice President of Disney Springs and Lisa Onopa, Director of Operating Participants Department, Walt Disney World Resort, and Brandon Peters, Walt Disney World Ambassador.

Hundreds of guests were lined up in anticipation of the ceremony and were rewarded for their enthusiasm with a tasty treat, as Fieri and Earl handed out samples of their chicken tenders and the restaurant’s 22 signature sauces to the hungry crowd.

“Growing up as a fan of all things Disney, I was absolutely stoked to be able to share a stage with Chef Mickey Mouse!,” Fieri said. “My partner, Robert Earl and I, wanted to bring an incredible chicken-forward concept to life and couldn’t be happier to have our first location be at Disney Springs.”

“This is such an exciting day for us, and we are so glad that you all came out and joined us!,” Earl said to the throngs of guests eagerly anticipating the ribbon-cutting ceremony. “Are you all ready to try some amazing chicken?”
