We could totally try to crack a joke here, but we’ll leave the corniness to this hot dog.
If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that the combination of salty hot dog and savory corn meal batter is a winning one… most of the time. At Casey’s Corner in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, the Corn Dog Nugget has been a favorite snack (and more recently a favorite entree — see it here!) for years, but recently we learned that things inside the nugget just aren’t the same.
That’s right: something is amiss, and we made a special trip to Casey’s to investigate. [Read more…]
This week’s visit to the Magic Kingdom was jam-packed with updates since our last visit! There’s new Valentine’s Chocolates, Krispie Treats, Loaded Hot Dogs and Corn Dogs, Eclairs, Refurbishments, Construction, Merchandise, and Alien Popcorn Buckets!
If you’re looking for that perfect treat for your sweetheart the Confectionery on Main Street, U.S.A. has some new Chocolate Truffles that come complete with a solid milk chocolate card!
Disney fans will remember when the hand-dipped corn dog came over to Sleepy Hollow in 2017. Sadly, after a short stint it was taken off the menu. We’re glad to say the corn dog is back and bigger than ever (just not hand-dipped this time)! This thing is seriously HUGE — it’s almost as tall as Cinderella Castle!
The newest Refillable Popcorn Bucket that we just spotted TODAY in Magic Kingdom may be the cutest one yet! Of course, we at the DFB may be a little partial, because this one features a TON of iconic Disney snacks!
Where to begin?!? How about with our favorite Mouse, who’s holding balloons formed like… well, just like him 🙂 , only in their food versions of a Mickey Ice Cream Bar and a Mickey Soft Pretzel! [Read more…]
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!
Question: If you go to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World and skip Casey’s Corner, were you ever really there?
Well, I can’t speak for everybody. But in my case, the answer is: Nope! Especially now that plastic cheese is back.
Well, by now you know that Plastic Cheese disappeared for a while. We found some from time to time, but it was never enough. And we still couldn’t dunk our Corn Dog Nuggets in it whilst gazing lovingly at Cinderella Castle from the quaint patio of Casey’s Corner.
Thank goodness those dark days are over! Welcome back to Casey’s Corner, home of amazing hot dogs and even more amazing plastic cheese!
Casey’s is quintessential Main Street, U.S.A., fulfilling Walt’s vision of a Main Street reminiscent of one of his childhood home in Marceline, Missouri. It’s got tremendous architectural detail, from intricate molding to fabulous window casings.
Inside the small ordering area are lots of decor pieces harkening back to a simpler time. Oh, and there’s lots of classy striped wallpaper, too (which I kind of love). [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.
Heading to Disney’s BoardWalk for a stroll or some shopping? If you need a bite to tide you over until that next Advance Dining Reservation, you’re in luck!
We can always recommend the Boardwalk Bakery for quick eats, but on this recent trip I decided to find out what the Boardwalk To-Go kiosk had to offer!
This place has been on my radar for a loooooong time, because they keep tempting me with new specials listed on vibrantly colored boards hanging out front (Fried Ravioli! Chicken Wings! Corn Nugget Fritters!)! That said, I’d never actually eaten here since I’m always on my way to or from another meal (and usually I’m LATE for said meal!).
But on this recent trip, I promised myself I’d check out the goods here. And I should probably just go ahead and throw it out there: this stuff ain’t healthy. The menu is definitely “basket” and “fried” driven, so while it’s easy to grab-and-go, it’s probably not an everyday choice if you want to maintain the energy you’ll need to run around the parks!
Basically, the process is as such: pick out what you want, order, wait a few minutes while they fry it, eat. You’ll find nearby seating at table and chair groupings, as well as nearby benches; but there’s no completely sheltered or indoor seating available at To Go. PLUS, the ducks are serious about stalking you, so [Read more…]
Disneyland is a treasure trove of amazing snacks and goodies, and I think it would take us list after list to mention all of my favorites. But I received a reader request for my top 5, so I knew I had to take a shot at choosing! 🙂
SO, let me add a disclaimer…I have SO MANY MORE than 5 favorite snacks at Disneyland. But if you want to get a good overview of some incredible classics, head for these. (I’m sensing a “Next Top 5 Snacks” post coming soon. ;-D)
And I want to hear YOUR favorites, too! What Disneyland goodies are your must-have eats? Share with us in the comments below so others going to Disneyland can benefit from your experience! 🙂
Hand-dipped and made fresh to order, these corn dogs are an indulgence, but a worthy one! Get them in Disneyland at the Little Red Wagon, too.
Of course, if you want to go vegetarian, the Cheese Stick is [Read more…]
