World's Largest McDonald's Shuts to Make Way for Even Larger McDonald's

Jan 01, 2016

The biggest McDonald's in the world closed this week to make room for an even larger McDonald's.

McDonald's shut down the 12,000-square-foot location in Orlando, Fla. in order to open a 19,000-square-foot version of the fast-food restaurant next door in February, the Orlando Sentinel reports. The franchise opened in 1976 and has since become a popular tourist attraction, but McDonald's decided it was time for a renovation.

The old restaurant was famously shaped like a box of french fries and didn't just have a PlayPlace but also featured an arcade, animatronic robots, bowling and more. McDonald's hasn't given word yet on what attractions the new location will offer, but there will be self-serve kiosks, allowing customers to order their own food.

Here are some pictures of the construction taking place at the new location:
