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.

FULL REVIEW: Pixar Fest Afternoon Tea in Disneyland Hotel

When Disneyland Resort introduced a brand new Pixar Fest Afternoon Tea a couple of weeks ago, we were chomping at the bit to learn more — and to get in on that tea and sandwiches action! The Pixar Fest Afternoon Tea is a part of the on-going (and delicious!) Pixar Fest, so guests can reserve tea through September 3, when the festival ends.

We were there on DAY 1 to enjoy it, so let’s head over to Steakhouse 55 and enjoy afternoon tea!

The cost of the Pixar Fest Afternoon Tea is $52-$65 per adult and $35 per child, and its location at Steakhouse 55 raised our expectations. We’d already had a great experience at Steakhouse 55 for regular old afternoon tea. Imagine what would happen when they Pixar-fied it!

Pixar Fest Eats: Inspired Bites at Rancho del Zocalo (Plus NEW NACHOS!) in Disneyland

You already know that Pixar Fest is the place for classic Disneyland Resort snacks with a twist — like many, many versions of the churro and some loaded funnel cakes (like this one inspired by Toy Story). 

Guests joining the friendship party can also grab a full and fun meal at Carnation Cafe, where retro eats like a Fried Bologna Sandwich are satisfying the need for some old-fashioned fun. And who can forget the Remy-approved three-course meal at Cafe Orleans?

Pixar Fest Eats: Spicy Corn Dog at Corn Dog Castle in Disney California Adventure Park

Disneyland Resort has always been the place to get a classic dipped corn dog — and during Pixar Fest, guests can get their corn dog a little on the spicy side! Nope, we’re not talking about the regular hot link corn dog. Nope — storm Corn Dog Castle in Disney California Adventure Park and seize a Spicy Corn Dog! This is a hot link corn dog times a thousand!

Review! NEW Menu at Flo’s V8 Cafe in Disney California Adventure!

Flo’s V8 Cafe is a quick service location in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park, and we’ve visited many times to enjoy the American style, homey offerings. We loved the Roast Beef Sandwich Flo was serving up on her lunch and dinner menu, and we were pretty stoked when Flo started serving breakfast again!

But that menu of comfort foods changed recently, and we had to dig in to see if it would remain as satisfying as ever. The new menu features lots of cleverly named dishes, including the Fin-tastic Tuna Sandwich and the Ka-Cheeseburger (you know — like “Ka-chow”!).
