McDonald's In The Magic Kingdom

The McChronicles spent a little time in Disney World last week (Orlando, Florida). While in the area we visited Downtown Disney and the McDonald's there.

We also entered The Magic Kingdom and looked for McDonald's. All we found was the opportunity to buy McD french fries, McNuggets, and McFlurries.

This was a bit disappointing (we were Jonesing for a full McDonald's meal). Additionally, we couldn't help but feel that McDonald's is putting their worst foot forward with some of the most assailable, low-health items. With a collection of much healthier items available it is, of course, possible to offer up some of the good stuff. We're guessing that Disney has a very heavy hand in what McDonald's can, and can't do, in the park.

$3,99 for a McFlurry Dessert? Are you kidding me? Are they nuts?

McDonalds packgaing is nuts too! A lot of that food is packaged in paper from Southern forests.

Right now McDonald's has the opportunity to become a true leader in the realm of fast food paper packaging. With smart choices and simple solutions, you can say "I'm lovin'… not loggin'… Southern forests!" I know that McDonald's is in the final stages of developing its latest corporate social responsibility report and should include policies to protect endangered Southern forests and embrace FSC certified fiber for its packaging. McDonald's has shown leadership in the past by both reducing excessive packaging and continually increasing the use of post-consumer recycled fiber for its paper packaging. Go to for more info.

I love your flickr photo roll!
