News: “The Triple Play” One Day Only Special at Casey’s Corner July 19

It’s the day you’ve been waiting for all year…


Okay, so maybe you didn’t even know that was, like, a thing. But the crew at Casey’s Corner in Magic Kingdom sure knows, because Casey’s is synonymous with one thing and one thing only: HOT DOGS!

So, how is Casey’s marking the occasion? By serving up “The Triple Play”!

For ONE DAY ONLY, guests can take their place in the batting order (the lines ;) ) at Casey’s to order a shareable trio of Casey’s famous all-beef hot dogs: the Macaroni and Cheese Dog, the Buffalo Chicken Dog, and the Chili-Cheese Dog.



This offering is in addition to the recent arrival of Hand-Dipped Corn Dogs in the Magic Kingdom, found at Sleepy Hollow. If you’re celebrating the Big Day in a different park ;-D, your Hot Dog stops include (but aren’t limited to) Min & Bill’s Dockside Diner in Hollywood Studios and Refreshment Cool Post in Epcot. But don’t forget that Animal Kingdom’s Restaurantosaurus boasts a Premium Toppings Bar to top your hot dog, so right after Casey’s, Restaurantosaurus tops our list.

Review: Casey’s Corner Chili-Cheese Dog with Shredded Cheese

Casey’s Corner is a staple for many Disney World visitors.

And it’s certainly long been a staple for us here at the DFB! You may recall when we took on the challenge of sampling all of the spot’s Specialty Hot Dogs, which included the Chili-Cheese Dog. Though the specialty dogs themselves have seen their fair share of changes (especially thanks to the new monthly rotation of Featured Hot Dogs for 2017), the Chili-Cheese Hot Dog has remained a solid standby.

But even standbys can change, and you’re about to see how this one has, too.

Our story begins when Plastic Cheese was removed from Counter Service locations all over Disney World. And while this isn’t exactly “news” anymore, we’re still seeing — and, frankly, emotionally processing — the effects of that change.

One of those changes, as you might anticipate, occurred with the Chili-Cheese Hot Dog at Casey’s. And I’d been kiiiiind of putting off this review because — SPOILER ALERT — I figured, right off the bat (Casey’s baseball pun not intended… much), that my enjoyment would likely be diminished.

Review: Updated Menu and Premium Topping Bar at Animal Kingdom’s Restaurantosaurus

We’re stepping back into the Age of the Dinosaurs at one of our favorite Animal Kingdom eateries, Restaurantosaurus!

Okay, well… that’s not actually the case. Even though Restaurantosaurus is set in Animal Kingdom’s whimsical Dinoland, U.S.A., this Counter Service eatery is actually themed as a home base for paleontology students. Which they eventually turned into a restaurant. Which totally makes sense.

So while we’re not exactly traveling back to the Age of the Dinos (you’ll have to hop onto the Dinosaur attraction to do that), the paleontology students “visit” the prehistoric age all the time, as evidenced by the plentiful and often hilarious details tucked throughout the restaurant. It’s the superb theming that makes this one of our favorite Counter Service stops in the whole park.

But even though the students explore stuff that goes waaaay back, we’re actually here to explore some NEW items on the menu as well as some terrific additions to the Topping Bar (which, we gotta say, is now giving the famed Fixin’s Bar at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe a run for its money).
