Hangin’ Out on Casey’s Corner!

By John Peters

Fans, I have a confession to make.  I was born and raised in Orlando, and I have been to the Magic Kingdom countless times.  Having said that, I had never before eaten a hot dog from Casey’s Corner!

Well, that was until my most recent trip, that is.  My wife and I had found a great spot for the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade – by the way, it is now at 2 PM instead of 3 PM.  There’s your “tip for the day”!

While we waited for the festivities to begin, I got her a popcorn.  For me, I decided that a hot dog would taste great!

Casey’s serves hot dogs, fries, and sodas.  When you do something right, you don’t need to offer an extensive menu!

Foot-long price is on the left. 8″ dog’s price is on the right.

Their special that day was a hot dog topped with pineapple, red peppers, cilantro, lime juice, and sweet chili sauce.  I almost decided to order it, but, in the end, I went with their Macaroni & Cheese All-Beef Hot Dog.

Draped with macaroni and cheese and adorned by bacon, the dog was delicious!  In fact, for me, the mac-n-cheese had just the right creamy texture!

Casey’s Corner’s hot dogs all come with your choice of apple slices or French fries.  Each is available as either a standard 8″ dog or as a foot-long version.

Oh, and they do have a toppings bar that is utterly loaded with onions, sauerkraut, and jalapeños.  Good stuff!

I’ve finally made it to Casey’s, everyone, and I have to tell you … I will return very soon.

Come to think of it, though, I only have one little critique.  The only thing that would have made my experience even better?  Hah!  A beer, of course!

Four Parks, One World? Four Parks, ONE Day!

In case you missed all of last Saturday’s “shenanigans”.  Here it is … all in ONE place.

We woke up with a challenge on our minds.  We had never tried to tackle all four WDW parks in one day.

So, we sketched out a very loosely-defined plan and took off for the TTC.  A tram ride from the Simba section and a shivering journey on a ferry later, we were in “The Kingdom”!

Here are those links …

The only thing we haven’t shared, as yet, is our “brunch” at Gaston’s Tavern.  That will come soon.  It was our first visit … other than a serving of LeFou’s Brew some time ago.

After we returned from “orbit”, it was time to …

… it was very tasty but just a bit sloppy. A nice bite!

Not into “dogs”? Plenty more to choose from!
