These images quickly went viral as many viewers claimed that Chris Evans was not at the Park and that he had been photoshopped into the pictures due to his “disciplined pose,” as he called it in a later tweet, promising he was not photoshopped in the pictures.
I promise I’m not photoshopped into these! I just have a very disciplined pose.
(And I don’t know what to do with my hands)

This is not the first time Guy Fieri has gotten himself involved with Disney Parks, as he opened a location of his restaurant, Chicken Guy, at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World Resort in 2018, giving Guests the chance to enjoy chicken tenders, salads, sauces, and more, bursting with Guy Fieri’s signature flare.
The official Disney World Website describes the Disney Springs location as follows:
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.
