Pollo Campero and Levy Campero Announce First Combined Restaurant Concept to Open at Downtown DisneyÂ® Marketplace.
Pollo Campero, an international Latin chicken quick-service restaurant chain, has partnered with franchisee Levy Campero to deliver a new restaurant concept in Downtown DisneyÂ® Marketplace at Walt Disney WorldÂ® Resort. The restaurant will feature Pollo Camperoâ€™s signature Latin chicken, as well as a new restaurant concept featuring fresh, healthy food.
â€œIts diversity of offerings and well-balanced options are the perfect addition to our current blend of dining experiences.â€
â€œThis is an exciting opportunity for Pollo Campero to introduce its famous chicken, along with our newest fresh restaurant concept of salads and wraps, to visitors from all over the world,â€ said Adam Cummis, president of Levy Campero. â€œWe are thrilled to collaborate with one of the strongest brands in the world to showcase our Latin delicacies and look forward to a long working relationship.â€
Walt Disney World guests will be able to savor combinations of freshly prepared Campero Latin chicken, unique, flavorful side dishes such as yuca fries and sweet plantains, and Latin drinks including horchata and tamarindo. The menu also will include nutritious and delicious meals such as chef-prepared salads, sandwiches and wraps using simple recipes derived from only the freshest ingredients.
â€œWeâ€™re pleased to offer this new Latin-style restaurant to our guests at Downtown Disney,â€ said Keith Bradford, vice president of Downtown Disney. â€œIts diversity of offerings and well-balanced options are the perfect addition to our current blend of dining experiences.â€
â€œFor decades, Walt Disney World has introduced its guests to rich cultural experiences,â€ said Juan Jose Gutierrez, chief executive officer of Pollo Campero. â€œWe will build on the parkâ€™s rich cultural heritage, helping visitors discover the unique tastes and togetherness of family-style Latin dining.â€
Pollo Camperoâ€™s food is freshly prepared each day. Fried and grilled chicken is marinated, sending the distinctive Campero flavor all the way to the bone. 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 new fresh concept menu will feature fresh salads, sandwiches, fruits, and healthy snacks, as well as vegetarian, gluten-free, sugar-free, low-sodium or organic offerings.
This new family-oriented location at one of Americaâ€™s beloved destinations â€“ Walt Disney World â€“ exemplifies Pollo Camperoâ€™s drive to become one of the top 50 quick-service restaurant brands in the United States. Pollo Campero has spent decades building a brand while retaining the values and service of a family-run business.

I found a photo of a restaurant online kinda reminds me of a McDonalds & KFC.
While walking around Disneyworld last week I was keeping an eye out for some of the Valentines Day goodies Disney would be creating. Not many places had items out for Valentines Day yet which made me kinda sad. They did have a few displays of different items. I am sure in the next week or so they will be displaying much more but for now here are a few photos of some of the items I was able to locate.
Here was a cool display of Rice Crispy treat hearts.
Who doesn’t love Chocolate covered apples in the shape of Mickey & Minnie?
Those cupcakes looked so good. Notice the cookie hearts in the top left corner. I hope you enjoy the rest of the photos below.
Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato will be performing a private concert at Walt Disney Worldâ€™s Epcot theme park on February 11, 2010 for a Celebration of Volunteerism event.
