It looks like McDonald’s started giving out their Happy Meal ponies today! In most places, anyway. I’ve heard reports here and there that some places aren’t starting until tomorrow, like planned, but it seems like the majority of McDonald’s are at least free to sell you just the toys. It might be worth it to make a trip to McDonalds tonight just in case, especially if you’re looking for Rarity or Pinkie. It’s probably unlikely that they’ll run out of toys in a day, but you never know!
Remember to be nice if they say they can’t sell them until tomorrow- getting worked up will just make the poor underpaid McDonald’s employee irritated and get you nowhere.
