We looooove telling you about news that can make your Disney trip even more comfortable and relaxing, and today we’re on a roll!
We’ve all been there… walking around Casey’s Corner with an armful of cardboard trays filled with hot dogs, French Fries, and a couple of enormous Cokes, searching indoors and out for a place to sit while hoping we don’t drop anything.
Welp, after a refurbishment that started in January, the Corner has reopened and is sporting some brand new digs! Yep — as far as we can tell, there are no more bleachers and no more movies…now we’ve got real, honest-to-goodness indoor seating (not just a few scattered tables) at Casey’s!
Let’s take a quick look at the refurbished restaurant first. The entryway welcomes guests as always (just polished up a bit), and the menu remains unchanged (hooray!).
And, of course, all of those nods to vintage baseball that make Casey’s what it is remain.
The big surprise comes when you enter the indoor seating area.
This spot used to house a few tables, but the “Casey at the Bat” bleachers and a movie screen spinning old school Disney sports cartoons were the focal points of the area. The banners and scoreboards are still there…
However, the bleachers have been removed to make way for more tables, and the movie screen has been removed.
Casey’s is a beloved spot for many reasons: the food is great, the location at the end of Main Street can’t be beat, and the theme is completely detailed and utterly charming. And because of those reasons, it’s always full. More tables here makes sense.
But you know something? I’m going to miss the bleachers and screen. I know it was next to impossible to find any elbow room, and that bleachers are not exactly custom-made for eating a hot dog covered in a heaping pile of BBQ Pork and Cole Slaw.
But there was just something comforting about walking in back, grabbing the last spot on the bleachers, and catching a glimpse of Goofy learning “How to Play Baseball.”
No matter what, though… it sure is great to have Jim back exactly where he belongs.
We’ll see you soon, Jim… Corn Dog Nuggets and Plastic Cheese in hand.
