Chicken Guy, the successful Guy Fieri concept in Disney Springs, is not only expanding around Florida, but also their very first location at Planet Hollywood!

One of the things that we noted in our review of the location when it opened back in August 2018 was that there was very limited indoor seating. There were tables and umbrellas set up outside, but with no proper overhang or permanent relief from the oftentimes harsh Florida summers, we recommended that you take your meal to-go and find somewhere to enjoy.

The chicken was great, but the dining experience left some to be desired…until last night. While visiting Disney Springs, we noticed that the long awaited expansion is officially underway!

The expansion will take over the Planet Hollywood gift shop, which is now closed. This will likely more than double the amount of indoor seating the venue currently has, a much-needed improvement for the popular quick service location.

As you can see in the photos below, a limited number of merchandise has been set up in the Planet Hollywood lobby, but we never noted the gift shop to be too busy throughout the year. This expansion is a much smarter use of the space.

There is no completion date for the expansion, but we hope it will be ready in time for warmer weather here in Central Florida.
