March 26, 2009 – The Friar’s Nook Opens in Walt Disney World
“Tuck into tasty fare like loaded buffalo chicken tots, hot dogs and fried Twinkies…”
On March 26, 2009, the quick-service restaurant The Friar’s Nook opened in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom park. Replacing the Village Fry Shoppe, the restaurant featured several kinds of loaded tator tots, along with assorted iced drinks. The name of the restaurant is derived from Friar Tuck, from the animated feature film Robin Hood.
