2010 at Downtown Disney will see one restaurant close and another one open in its place. McDonald's will be closing its Downtown Disney location at the Walt Disney World resort in late April. Later this year, it will be replaced by Pollo Campero, said to be the world's largest Latin chicken restaurant chain. Pollo Campero is known for its Latin chicken, which is prepared fresh every day. According to the restaurant's website, the chicken is marinated to lock in the Campero flavor. Fried chicken is hand-breaded in seasoned flour and slowly pressure-cooked without trans-fats, resulting in a flavorful and juicy meal. Grilled chicken features the taste of lime and orange juices, red bell peppers, and a special blend of Latin herbs and spices.

The Dallas-based restaurant will also introduce a new fresh concept, featuring nutritious salads, sandwiches and wraps. Traditional Latin dishes, such as fried plantains and yuca fries, will be served on the side. A benefit to the fresh concept will be the offering of vegetarian, gluten-free, sugar-free, low-sodium and organic dishes.
