Award Wieners is an old Hollywood style counter service joint in Disney California Adventure. It’s located in Hollywood Land, which isn’t surprising when you see the sleek art deco exterior.
So… speaking of hot dogs!!!
We’ve long enjoyed Disney California Adventure’s Award Wieners not only for its punny name, but also for its often unique take on typical Hot Dogs and Sausages.
Recently, they changed things up even more with a new selection of Street-style Dogs, so our Disneyland Correspondent, Heather Sievers, made her way over to Hollywood Land to check things out! [Read more…]
First off, if you have yet to see Disney’s Zootopia, get out there and do it! My whole family loved the movie. It’s fun for all ages including temperamental, too cool for school tweens and teenagers. Secondly, if you love bananas, we hope you got over to California Adventure’s Award Wieners to celebrate the movie with a Banana Corn Dog.
Located in DCA’s Hollywood Land, Award Wieners is a counter service hot dog spot currently offering (today is the last day!) the specialty Banana Corn Dog in honor of Zootopia’s release.
The Banana Corn Dog is actually two small banana corn dogs. My guess is that they prepare it this way because a whole banana might get too mushy when fried and wouldn’t hold its shape. The bananas are dipped in Corn and Honey Batter, fried, and topped with Powdered Sugar. Two dipping sauces are served with the banana corn dogs: Red “Pawpsicle” Raspberry Sauce and Chocolate Sauce.
Award Wieners in Disney California Adventure serves up gourmet hot dogs and sausages that are just a little outside the box. So if you decide to stop in for a bite, bring your sense of adventure with you!
I love that Award Wieners often runs specials to coincide with whatever the Disney Movie du jour is. We’ve enjoyed some fun, film-inspired eats and drinks here, like the Teriyaki Street Dog and Coconut Milk Tea that honored Big Hero 6. And who could forget the Wizard Blizzard and Yellow Brick Roll, to mark the opening of Oz, the Great and Powerful? [Read more…]

If you haven’t seen Big Hero 6 yet, then you need to get to the movie theater ASAP. My whole family, teenager included, enjoyed it. I’m now totally in love with Baymax.
So, when I saw that there were Big Hero 6 special menu items at Award Wieners in Disney California Adventure, I was all in.
There are two special menu items, the Teriyaki Street Dog and Coconut Milk Tea that are definitely worth a visit to Award Wieners.
Both items are unbelievably delicious. I’m normally not a hot dog person (I’ll take a corn dog over a hot dog on any Disney day), but the flavors in the description intrigued me.
The Teriyaki Dog is a Teriyaki glazed all beef hot dog served on a Garlic Chive Roll. It’s topped with Wasabi Mayonaisse and Ginger, Carrot & Cucumber Slaw. If you’re not into spicy, don’t let the word wasabi scare you away. I’m only a mild spice type of person (so this means I’m just mildy boring, right?) and I could totally handle it. In fact, I really loved it.
The mayo had just a little bit of kick to it and combined with the flavors of the hot dog and slaw, it was perfect.
The Teriyaki Street Dog is $8.50. [Read more…]

With Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful still in theaters, Disney California Adventure’s Award Wieners is offering two Oz themed menu items.
The Wizard Blizzard is the featured “Oz” drink. For $6.25 you can get yourself a glowing glass of green apple-ish lemonade that Disney calls “A Whirlwind of Flavor.”
With an official description of “Mysteriously glowing Minute Maid Light Lemonade with a breeze of Granny Smith Apple Flavor topped with Citrus Foam,” the lemonade to me was just OK. It was more bitter than sweet, and I didn’t really taste the citrus in the foam.
My kids however, loved it. The color, the glowing ice cube and the taste; they totally went for it.
Yellow Brick Roll
The featured Oz hot dog was the “Yellow Brick Roll, Your Pathway to Oz the Great and Powerful.” Or, depending on your stomach strength, it may be your [Read more…]
Earlier this week we shared a few fun Disney Halloween Treats that had been popping up in the parks!
Today, we’ve got a few seasonal dishes that will be showing up at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks through November 4th! You’ll want to order these fun entrees and treats soon!
Halloween Dishes in Disneyland
In the Disneyland park, Blue Bayou is serving a pan-roasted wild boar chop with a blood orange fruit reduction, accompanied by a tri-color layered potato stack and veggies.
Desserts include the Midnight Chocolate Tart Temptation, a sweet and salty treat with milk chocolate filling, caramel popcorn ice cream, olive oil, and Down Under flake salt.
Just around the corner, Café Orleans is featuring a Haunted Chicken dish. Try the pan-seared chicken breast dressed with chili cream sauce, served with purple garlic mash and sautéed carrots, before it vanishes into thin air.
