Every single McDonald's in my area, (Western NY), were selling Happy Meals for one-dollar a pop. That's right, just one little dollar. When it's usually around $4 or so around here, every single meal was just a dollar. This happened just this past Saturday on Sept. 28th, from about 11AM-7PM EST.

Good thing, right? We all love Happy Meals, and this time it's the cheapest its ever been. Although, mass traffic was caused and immense amount of people flocked the restaurant I was at. The crowd consisted of outsiders not from town, as well as the close-by Canadians from across the border as their Happy Meals are more than $4 from my area. It was by far something you'd see in a grand opening in a major city. Some people waited about half hour to get served, and about an hour for orders to be ready for the customers. Others stated that they paid for food, waited an hour, and never got the order. McDonalds accidentally took their cash I guess. I couldn't imagine the drive-thru.

I have a video linked below from what I recorded from my phone. This McDonald's was in Niagara Falls, and it's terrifying. I can only imagine how Buffalo or Rochester was in WNY, (the two other major cities). It may not look like much, but I assure you, it was immense. It was even more immense a little bit before I had the bright idea to grab my phone and record.

And PS, I didn't order a Happy Meal, (Mighty Wings instead).

I also encourage you to switch into HD for the video. And I'm aware I said in the video that "it's all around the states", I learned later after I recorded that I heard it was only in my area. Sorry about that.

Don't buy the 1 dollar one and you'll save a dollar. What's so good about McDonald's I don't get it.

i wouldn't take a happy meal for free, not sure what all the commotion is over.

Ok maybe I would take one depending on the toy, but I'd toss the food.

my area sells $1 mcchickens though it might be ending soon. But yea, at my store, and the franchise i work for, for that matter, doesn't have the $1 happy meal...I would cry...seriously seriously cry.

We're only 1 of 3 fastfood in town, and the only town with fast food within a half hour. So whenever a school event is nearby, we get busy. Usually packed more than that 3 nights a week. Problem is, the other 4 nights are dead, so we get to suffer from lack of staff.

Man, McDonald's used to have some pretty kickass toys for their happy meals when I was young. I was in awe when they were releasing toys for Super Mario Bros. 3. xD



Anyway, I wouldn't be able to go near that McDonalds without having a panic attack. WAY too many people for me.

The ones I probably miss the most are the old transformers toys. I would play with those and my ninja turtles 'n power rangers toys forever. Back before the times of the internet and whatnot. xD
