You’ll Know Where to Find Us During Fried Chicken Celebration Weekend at Disneyland Resort

Three words: Fried Chicken Celebration. Say it, and we’re there.

To properly honor National Fried Chicken Day on July 6, we’re spending that weekend at Disneyland Resort to partake in the inaugural Fried Chicken Celebration!

We’ve always celebrated our love for the crispy delicacy in our hearts, but now we get to experience it with fellow fried chicken connoisseurs at The Happiest Place on Earth from July 6–8. What more can one ask for?

At this point, we’re sure you’re planning exactly where to be next weekend. Take notes, because Plaza Inn at Disneyland and Flo’s V8 Café in Disney California Adventure are both serving up their own special fried chicken dishes! Which means we’ll need to make a stop at both places, obviously. Feast your eyes:

Plaza Inn

According to Disney Parks Blog, Chef Jonny Hall, culinary director at Disneyland, described the beautiful sight from Plaza Inn before our eyes:

“Our sweet and savory brined chicken is lightly coated in a secret flour blend of garlic and spices, then fried under pressure to create a delicate and magical crunch. This simple approach known as ‘broasting’ results in a distinct deep golden brown color and crispy exterior, and an unbelievably juicy interior.”

Say no more, Chef Jonny.

Flo’s V8 Café

Chef John State, culinary director at Disney California Adventure, spilled the secret recipe for the fried chicken at Flo’s V8 Café to Disney Parks Blog as well:

“Our chicken sings of toasted flour and notes of a rich egg batter scented with prominent ground black pepper spice. While the exact science to this recipe is a secret that’s only known to Flo, we use a traditional basket fryer, ensuring there is a pronounced crunch with every bite and the meat is filled with sweet-salty juices.”

And just like that, our July 6–8 weekend plans were cleared. Fine dining has never sounded finer than during the #FriedChickenCelebration at Disneyland Resort!
