The world’s largest White Castle has just opened up in Orlando, Florida. It could have been the promised free desserts to those vaccinated or just the sheer excitement in seeing the 4,567-square-foot space, but either way, the new opening brought the masses.

With burger-goers lining up in the early morning, creating a mile-long traffic jam, wait times were reported close to four hours. The new White Castle is located in O-Town West development near Walt Disney World and is opened from 9 a.m. until 1 a.m., although they are looking to eventually keep it open 24 hours a day.

With 140 staff employed, this location sees an indoor area that seats 72, an outdoor patio section for 56 guests, and two drive-thru lanes. This new location also set the record in White Castle’s 100-year history for most sales in a day. White Castle VP Jamie Richardson commented, “Our grand opening exceeded our wildest expectations and beat the previous record by over 15 percent.” Check out some of the tweets below to witness the action that transpired on opening day.
