If you are a foodie, taking a vacation to Disney World is always a great choice! The theme parks have not only immersive and jaw-dropping attractions but also hundreds of food locations that will leave any Guest with a smile on their face.

Whether you are looking for sweet or savory, plain or intricate, affordable or pricey, Disney World has you covered for every occasion. One of the best spots any Disney Guest can head to after a magical-filled day at EPCOT, Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom is Disney Springs.

Disney Springs is the ultimate shopping and eating center on Disney property, and with so many food options to choose from, any foodie will surely be making a return trip during their visit. One popular spot for many is Chicken Guy, owned by award-winning and celebrity chef Guy Fieri!

Chicken Guy brings chicken tenders to the next level, with quality-grade chicken bursting in your mouth with every bite. Plus, there are over 20 sauces Guests can choose from when dining here, for all you condiment queens and kings out there. The line to snag a quick-service meal at this location is always out the door, and now, it seems that anyone visiting the chicken joint may have to wait a few days.

Chicken Guy!

Accroding to the Disney World website, Chicken Guy will be undergoing a temporary closure at Disney Springs. The closure will last only a few short days on May 19 and 20 and the restaurant reopens to the public as of Friday. At the moment, we are unsure as to why the location will be closing for two days as no official statement has been made.

That being said, we can see Chicken Guy “coming soon” signs on the building next to the eatery, so perhaps the closure is being done to expand the restaurant to accommodate more Guests, as the demand is clearly there.

Disney describes Chicken Guy as:

One-of-a-Kind Flavors
Satisfy your appetite with the rockin’ restauranteur’s irresistible quick bites—including all-natural chicken tenders, skewers, sandwiches and salads that can be paired with over 20 varieties of house-made sauces perfect for dipping, slathering or smothering. Crave-worthy sides, desserts and assorted beverages are also available.

For now, we will have to wait and see if any changes were made to the location when it reopens on Friday!
