The NEW Western Dog at Refreshment Corner in Disneyland Resort!!

In case you were wondering, we are still making our way through the extensive, ever-evolving Pixar Fest food, and we’re still loving every minute of it.

Today we’re at Refreshment Corner — often referred to as Coke Corner (which we like because alliteration) — and we’re digging into a hot dog that’s got so much good stuff on it that we already want another.

Refreshment Corner is located on Main Street, U.S.A., making it a super convenient place to pick up a quick bite. The focus here is on quick eats in hot dog form, including a Pastrami Dog and a Chili Cheese Dog. But in our quest to conquer the creative eats of Pixar Fest (which continues through September 3!), we went straight for the Western Dog!

The Western Dog — inspired by Toy Story‘s Woody, Jessie, and Woody’s Round Up friends — is loaded with awesomeness. The All-Beef Hot Dog is topped with BBQ Sauce, Jack Cheese, Bacon, Onion Straws, and Chives. This is all packed into an Artisan Bun. Of course, “packed” is the operative word here because the bun can barely contain all that good stuff!

The bun is good, though! It’s soft and a decent size, it’s just… well… the toppings here are outrageous (as is often the case with specialty hot dogs at the Disney Parks!). Check out that hot dog!

The Onion Straws are dark and crunchy — the perfect texture element for the dog. The BBQ Sauce is generously drizzled, with a little bit managing to get into every bite.

And while the Chives might seem like a throw away, they actually add a nice element of freshness to the otherwise ultra savory, slightly heavy dog.

And in case you’re wondering what’s up with the bacon, it’s two full sized strips of well-cooked bacon — no piddly bacon bits tossed haphazardly on top. Nope — the Western Dog takes its bacon surrrrriously.

So, look: we want the Jack Cheese to be melty and stringy, and it’s not. But the Western Dog still totally rocks. It comes with a bag of Lays Potato Chips for $9.49 — and it’s definitely big enough (and filling enough) to share. So if you’re snacking your way through Pixar Fest, don’t skip this dog! Just grab a friend to share, and lasso one of these babies!
