McDonalds in Orlando with a Key West Theme

Key West in Orlando? And at McDonalds? Yes, really, you can step onto Duval Street, and find yourself in a little bit of Key West without having to face the 300 mile drive down to the Keys.

How did we find it, you may ask? Well, quite by chance. We had to pick up a car for our daughter, then 22, and through www. uscarhire. co. uk we had booked a vehicle which, uniquely, did not charge her a daily excess for being under 25.

Now, having a teenage son who, despite being as thin as a rake, sometimes appears to have a stomach which is a bottomless pit, imagine his delight when the familiar yellow ‘M’ appeared on the horizon, just a few yards from the car hire depot.

But this was no ordinary McDonalds, oh no! Even outside it looked very different, as there was an attractive round white gazebo, where, had it been daylight, you could have eaten your meal in a tropical atmosphere, or sat under palm umbrellas.

Inside, as you stepped through the door labelled ‘Duval St, ’ it was very different from the usual McDonalds. No red plastic seats and garish colours here. There were palm trees, and exotic flowers and plants at the entrance, and the tables and chairs were of light wood, with metal palm trees making up the chair backs. To the left there was a tikki bar, complete with a palm roof, and tall, high backed stools surrounding the bar area.

The interior had bamboo and dark mahogany tables and chairs in a separate area, as well as rattan chairs. Round the corner there was a separate area, with wooden planking on the walls, and a ‘fishy’ theme. There were fishing rods, a giant swordfish on the wall, a lifebuoy from Oyster Bay and large Plasma TV screens playing nature programmes about the exotic sea life of this region.

Tropical accents such as pink flamingos, a stripy black lighthouse and a sign saying ‘Key West 0 miles’ green lizards and huge frogs on the wall, added to the atmosphere. The whole restaurant was very clean and extremely well run, and the staff were helpful and friendly

It was a fascinating place to eat – completely unique and a refreshing change from the usual plastic décor of most McDonalds. So if you ever find yourself nearby, then drop in for a taste of Key West!
