After 50 years, Florida is about to see the return of the popular burger joint, White Castle — and it will be minutes from Disney World!

Although Disney World is home to amazing food options — whether that be quick service or table service dining — sometimes, having a fast-food burger and fries is exactly what you need on your Disney World vacation. Although currently McDonald’s is the only on-property fast food location that is not Disney-owned, Guests can travel minutes outside of the archway for more variety.

As we previously reported: 

The new White Castle will be the largest one for the chain. The restaurant is expected to create over 100 jobs in the Central Florida area. 

Known for its tiny square-shaped hamburgers, the menu also includes a variety of sliders like sloppy joe sliders and chicken and waffle sliders. If you need a side to go with your main entree, you can choose from a variety of options like mac ‘n cheese nibblers, chicken rings, corn dog nibblers, and of course, french fries.

Now, we can see that the White Castle construction has begun to go vertical! Bioreconstruct (@bioreconstruct) posted a construction update of what is set to be the world’s largest White Castle, and progress is looking good.

With 4,500 square feet of affordable and delicious meals available, Disney World Guests can pop in and dine what will be a massive outdoor patio whenever they want to escape the Disney World crowds — and check off visiting the largest White Castle off their bucket list. The White Castle near Walt Disney World Resort is set to open sometime this year in 2021, just in time for the 50th anniversary, when so many more Guests will be flocking to Florida to celebrate!
