In the last few years, several Golden Arches – the international symbol for McDonald’s restaurants – have slowly disappeared from the Walt Disney World Resort.
There are two remaining on property, the stand alone one near the Animal Kingdom that has just been renovated and the one in the Marketplace in Downtown Disney. And now, one is going to be closing for good and, as you can probably guess, it is not the one that has been recently renovated.
The McDonalds in Downtown Disney’s Marketplace will be closing as of April 3o, 2010. It is the last scheduled to close on the property, the stand alone restaurant will remain open – for now.
A replacement has already been found for the Marketplace in Downtown Disney – a Latin chicken fast-food chain called Pollo Campero. No word yet as to when the new restaurant will open.
