This was the case for numerous McDonald’s restaurant franchisees on April 6, 2022. The lucky group enjoyed a private party at Walt Disney World Resort’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park after normal park operations stopped early for the event.

Franchisee Katie C. shared her fabulous experience on Facebook, writing:

Had the best night ever at Hollywood Studios! It was closed to the public, so we got to ride every single ride with virtually no wait times and get all the food and drinks we wanted!

Katie shared with Inside the Magic that she and her family, who are McDonald’s owner-operators from Kentucky and Ohio, are “so happy to be part of a brand that values their franchises, suppliers, and company personnel enough to rent out the entire Park for an evening at the Most Magical Place on Earth!”

As you can see from Katie’s photos, crowds were sparse compared to what they have been lately when the Park is open to the public. This gave the McDonald’s party-goers ample time to enjoy all of the rides that Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge have to offer.
