This is a family favorite for my crew and here are 6 things that we think you will absolutely love about Casey’s Corner:
6. The location
Main Street in the Magic Kingdom is the hub of the Magic Kingdom where many guests eat, shop, explore and await the parade, shows and fireworks that occur within the area. Casey’s Corner is conveniently located in the middle of all of the action and is a great place to dine and enjoy all of the sights, sounds and activity that Main Street has to offer.
5. The amazing smells
If you have been to Magic Kingdom, you have likely walked down Main Street and smelled the familiar, comfortable scent of fresh hot dogs and ballpark food. That wonderful aroma is coming from Casey’s Corner, and you can’t help but let it draw you in. The restaurant is quite popular, so the delicious smell works on many other guests, too.
4. The affordability

If you are on a budget, this is one that won’t break the bank and has different options, including kid’s meals and various sized meals. This location is also on most Disney Dining Plans and can be used as a quick service entitlement.
3. The detailed, charming theme
This location takes you back to the beginning of baseball when it was all about the hot dogs, peanuts, cracker jacks and summer nights at the ballpark. The decor is all things baseball and with lots of red, white and blues for America’s sport. It ties in an old Walt Disney cartoon and completely hits the theme and atmosphere out of the park. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, so you can enjoy the outside atmosphere or look at the decor and detail from the air-conditioned inside.
2. The hot dogs
The hot dogs at this location as truly as delicious as they smell. They barbeque slaw dog is my personal favorite, but we have tried them all and love them. My kids love the corndog nuggets, and they are addictive! This is good old fashioned Americana food that reminds you of the comfort and fun of being at the ballpark with your family.
1. Jim, the ragtime piano player
If you experience nothing else at Casey’s, you should at least stop and listen when Jim is playing outside the restaurant. You will catch him tickling the ivories with ragtime classics. It’s an extremely energetic show with multiple sets most days, throughout the day. Don’t miss this one!
