If your idea of vacation is a one-way trip to Flavortown we’ve got news for you: Guy Fieri is coming to Disney World (whether you want him to or not) and he’s bringing a whole lotta fried chicken with him, Walt Disney World announced on Wednesday.
The Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host is setting up shop at Disney Springs in Orlando. The fast-casual restaurant, slated to open in August of this year, will be called Chicken Guy! and the bird-centric menu will feature everything from chicken tender sandwiches to skewers to salads, fried or grilled according to preference. To top your tenders, diners will have the option of indulging in more than 20 sauces served by a “sauce slinger” who will be walking the floor with a “holster full of condiments,” according to People. It’s too soon to say if you’ll need to BYODS (Bring Your Own Donkey Sauce, Fieri’s signature dipping concoction).
If that’s not enough of a Fieri fix for you, you’ll have the opportunity to get a selfie with a life-size image of the celebrity chef on your way out.
The Food Network star’s eatery is intended to serve as “the original flagship location of what will eventually be a restaurant chain.” Early rumors were swirling that everything on the menu would cost less than $7, which would be a serious bargain at the otherwise pricey park, but details have not been confirmed at this time.
In addition to upping its food — and maybe more importantly its drink — game (hello, boozy beignets), Disney has recently invested in a slew of new amusement park rides and themed areas of the park.
