Located on the corner of International Drive and Sand Lake Road in Orlando, what’s dubbed the “world’s largest entertainment McDonald’s” stands 48 feet tall and its interior clocks in at a staggering 18,716 square feet. It’s home to a giant 22-foot-tall play structure, a 2,000 square foot arcade, a 30-foot-tall Ronald, a singing animatronic Mac Tonight (its moon-head ‘80s mascot), and, most importantly, a menu that’s completely different from every other McDonald’s location on earth.[related]
Should you drop by the restaurant (which recently reopened after its previous incarnation — also the largest on earth — was torn down), you’ll still encounter the standard McDonald’s menu that you’ll find everywhere else, but this is the only McDonald’s to also feature a “Bistro Gourmet at McDonald’s” menu. There are nearly 50 items on the sprawling menu, which includes breakfast items, pizza, pasta, sandwiches and wraps, and a wide variety of desserts. Oh, and both the restaurant and drive-thru are open 24/7, with the full menu available around the clock.
Breakfast items include ham and cheese French toast, a Baja breakfast burrito, Belgian waffles, and eggs benedict panini. Pizza toppings include Tuscan sausage, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, and grilled chicken. Sandwiches and wraps include a grilled chicken burrito, chicken quesadillas, meatball parm, Philly cheese steak, and even hot pastrami. The make-your-own pasta selection allows you to top ravioli, tortellini, or angel hair with Alfredo or marinara sauce; meatballs, chicken, and shrimp can be added. And the dessert section is astronomical, with favorites including Carnival Crazy (cotton candy ice cream, marshmallows, and rainbow sprinkles), banana splits, Peanut Butter Explosion Cake (with brownies, chocolate cake, peanut butter mousse, and peanut butter chips), and New York style cheesecake.
In the mood for a chimichanga in Orlando? Just head to McDonald’s, apparently!
