McDonald's at the All Star Resorts area demolition
Posted: Friday November 8, 2019 12:58pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The McDonald's near to Disney's All Star Resorts closed on October 30 2019, and is already near to total demolition.

Demolition crews have removed about 75% of the structure so far.

The location had its last major remodel in 2009 which saw the removal of the original Fast Food exterior design to be replaced with a more traditional look.

All of you have made me hungry! I need to get some McDonalds now.

Building? What's important is that I can get my double quarter pounder w bacon, large fries and milk shake there. It's about the food fix not a building!

The first was an architectural statement in itself...and fit the time. Unfortunately for that style, it didn't age well. I love the new one more than I can even say. First, I love modern, and this is crazy awesome. But, most importantly is what the design and building say about architecture and how it should be sustainable. If this location truly ends up being net zero, that's a huge thing. Especially being the first net zero fast food restaurant. We are lucky to have this! Thanks for the article, @lazyboy97o !

I'll take the original design over this IMO ugly design any day of the week. Looks like some corp. headquarters bland run of the mill building.

Depends on what Coronovirus legislation your state has put in place. From the sound of it your state regulartions are banning restaurants at the moment. Over here in the UK restaurants and bars could open up from last weekend, but waited service is encouraged and tables must be distanced. Plus the venue should take a register of everyone eating inside in case one person shows Covid symptons then everyone can be notified (Track and Trace). So as yes McDonalds, KFC etc are still drive-thru or take out only with no toilets available (or delivery takeout with UberEats). A lot of McDonalds won't allow walk-up collection yet, its drive-thru only. Had my first KFC in months at the weekend and sat in the car to eat.

I hear it's super. And maybe even better than the parks.

FWIW, I think it's legal (but I'm not a lawyer). Just basing this on personal experience. When I was a teenager I worked at a take-out only restaurant -- we had no customer seating whatsoever. We did not have public restrooms and the owner would tell people who questioned it that restaurants only had to provide public restrooms if they had seating for customers. If it was only a take-out facility, they did not have to provide public restrooms. I know she would refer to the specific regulation but I don't remember what it was. Fast forward to today, my daughter works at a Starbucks. They currently (due to COVID-19 restrictions) do not have indoor or outdoor seating (their chairs and tables are in storage). Customers can go through the drive-thru, place mobile orders for pick up at the door or drive-thru, and up to 5 customers can be in the building at one time to place/pick-up orders. They do not have their bathrooms open for the public (and have signs on the front door and in the space indicating that, yet people try to move boxes and chairs to get to the restrooms). The manager told the employees that as long as they don't provide seating, they will not have their bathrooms open for the public as they are not required to provide public restrooms unless they have customer seating.

I have no idea.

Yes. I learned that some time ago

I demand hot fresh fries. The way I get it is I ask for a large fries with no salt. The McDonald's staff member has to fry a fresh batch just for me. When the staff member gives me my order, I also ask for a few salt packets with the order.😉

Getting fast food in Florida is like playing a weird lottery. You hand them an predetermined amount of money based on what you think you may want to eat. The workers put random items into bags and distribute them willy nilly. Sometimes you win (I ordered a KFC 2 Piece Snack Meal. I got an 8 Piece Bucket, 2 Large Side, 4 Biscuits, and a 2 litre of Pepsi). Usually you lose. But the one thing you can count on is you NEVER, EVER, EVER get what you ordered.

I think The Golden Arches are much more revered overseas. Here in the USA, it's just another fast food option.
