It’s LITTLE RED WAGON time!!
And there’s no better place to grab your Hand-Dipped Corn Dogs in Disneyland!
Well, okay, technically there IS Corn Dog Castle over in Disney California Adventure Park, but we’re talking about Walt’s original park here.
Plus, you know… Main Street U.S.A. is tough to beat for enjoying…um…the BEST CORN DOG EVER.
Speaking of Main Street, you’ll find the Corn Dog Wagon parked on the right hand side of the street as you’re walking toward the Castle — you’ll pass it right before you get to the Plaza Inn.
Seating is sparse, though you should be able to snag a table outside at the Plaza Inn or across the “street” at Jolly Holiday.
The menu here is pretty simple. It’s corn dogs…and corn dogs. Or you could get a corn dog. Once you decide, you have the choice of chips or apple slices. Done and done.
So why is this classic carnival snack so beloved here in Disneyland when you can probably pick up corn dogs at the grocery store on any given Tuesday? It’s the batter. These dogs are hand-dipped in some of the best corn batter I’ve ever had. And a lot of folks clearly agree with me, since Disneyland corn dogs have pretty much gone down in history.
You get a slight crunch on the outside with that fried-up batter, and the inside is soft and sweet-savory. Seriously — it’s like no other corn dog I’ve ever had.
I hate to break it to ya…. but even though you can technically get Hand-dipped Corn Dogs at Disney World, too, thanks to the Fantasy Fare Food Truck (and I truly do think that’s very good news for the east coast diehards), they still don’t quite live up to the Disneyland version. It’s pretty much an art form — not to mention a major tradition.
And if you’re at Disneyland this weekend for the D23 Expo, don’t forget to spend a little time in line at the Little Red Wagon!
