    Is it really? I did not know that!

    But yeah, anyways, the corn dogs at DLR are okay IMO.

    Man, a Disneyland corn dog sounds DELICIOUS right now. I had my wisdom teeth removed yesterday and I'm craving some solid food. Ice cream and soup just ain't cutting it.

    I don't ever buy corn dogs anywhere else...ANYWHERE else. At Disneyland though, it's the perfect quick and tasty lunch.
    As I recall, the Stage Door Cafe is really kind of hidden, so I don't usually see a lot of traffic there. The one night that I had corndog there, it was pretty busy, and my dog was fresh, so... The Red Wagon in DL and Corn Dog Castle in DCA are always busy, so the dogs are usually fresh. I think that's the difference.

    Re: Corn Dog question

    I'd had 'em from the cart a couple of times and LOVED them, wondered why I'd waited so many years to try one.

    Then I had one from the Stage Door and -- as other posters have noted -- it was soggy with grease, instead of perfectly crispy golden brown, as they'd been from the cart. Perhaps it's because they have to cook so many ahead? The limited space of the red wagon may just mean they're fresher (tho' the line may be longer).

    Man am I hungry! I'm craving a giant corn dog with lots of mustard and some fries with lots of ketchup. Clearly... I don't mind a little grease

    Re: Corn Dog question

    I don't know, after hearing all the rave reviews and seeing the long lines at The Little Red Wagon, I WANTED to love the DL corn dogs...but my mom and I finally tried them at Stage Door about two years ago and they were SO greasy. Like my mouth literally filled up with grease when I took a bite. It wasn't really a pleasant experience. I want to give them another try sometime, maybe from the Red Wagon instead, but I just fear it will be more of the same.

    Actually, I wouldn't prefer either one, however if it came to choosing a microwaved one over a baked one, I would happily wait the extra time it takes to bake one rather than have a soggy irradiated dog.

    Sorry, I must respectfully but emphatically disagree. There is nothing like a fresh and hot corndog, and Disney's are the best I've had anywhere. Well, except the ones that where on the grab and go table at Destination D just recently. YUK!!!

    The corn dogs are great and I've been told if you buy your drink at the Plaza Inn next door you can get refills.

    I've had the corndog at every location they're served in Disneyland and DCA, honestly, I can't really tell the difference. But, because of a tradition started long ago with my family, my favorite is the Corn Dog Castle in DCA. So glad it's open again. :yea:


    That said, we all know that these corndog are probably not that good for you. So, moderation my friends. I limit myself to 1 maybe 2 per trip, depend on the length of my stay. ENJOY!

    I was looking at menus and noticed that they are served with chips or apples. But you mention french fries. I don't see them offered with fries. Do you pay extra for substitute fries for chips/apples? Or do you just get an order of fries on the side? Dang.... I'm hungry!

    Also... are they bigger than your typical corn dog?
    The only place to get them with fries is at the Stage Door Cafe. The Cart and DCA both only offer the chips/apples.

    IIRC, the fries did not add any additional cost to the meal, but I can't remember for certain.

    They are DEFINITELY bigger than your average bear. Lots of times I'll just have my two kids split one for a quick lunch. They are big enough to be split and still be filling.
