03 February 2010 by MyFox Orlando

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - The Golden Arches will soon come down at Downtown Disney's Marketplace Shops . McDonald's announced it will be closing its restaurant which is flanked by the Lego Imagination Center and T-Rex Cafe at Walt Disney World Resorts's shopping and dining complex.  The "Mickey D's" will be replaced with a Pollo Campero , billed as the world's largest Latin chicken restaurant chain.

The restaurant will feature Pollo Campero's signature Latin chicken, as well as a new restaurant concept featuring fresh, healthy food, according to a news release sent to FOX 35 by the Dallas-based restaurant. The restaurant also offers typical Latin side dishes like yuca fries and sweet plantains. Latin-themed beverages will also be served including horchata and tamarindo. The menu also will include nutritious and delicious meals such as chef-prepared salads, sandwiches and wraps.

"We're pleased to offer this new Latin-style restaurant to our guests at Downtown Disney," said Keith Bradford, vice president of Downtown Disney . "It's diversity of offerings and well-balanced options are the perfect addition."

Pollo Campero serves more than 85 million customers each year at more than 300 restaurants in 12 countries around the world, 50 of which are already open in the United States. The Downtown Disney location is expected to open in late 2010. McDonald's will be shuttered in late April but will continue to operate at other locations around Walt Disney World Resort.
