It doesn’t get any better than strolling down Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom, blue skies and sunshine above, the grandeur of Cinderella Castle ahead, lively music putting a spring in your step, and the mouthwatering scent of hot dogs from Casey’s Corner wafting through the air. This counter-service eatery anchors the corner of the Emporium and is a quintessential part of Main Street USA. Perfect for lunch, dinner, or an evening snack, grabbing a bite to eat at Casey’s Corner is a definite must-do for my family on every trip. Here’s why Casey’s Corner should be part of your next trip too!
1. Delectable hot dogs
Whether you order the chili-cheese dog, the macaroni and cheese dog, corn dog nuggets, or the standard hot dog without any frills, you won’t be disappointed.
2. A side of fries please
A side order of shoestring French fries is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious hot dog. Apple slices are available if you’d rather not have the fries.
3. Vintage baseball décor
Enjoy your meal immersed in vintage baseball memorabilia, black and white photos, and old-fashioned signs. It’s the perfect place to enjoy baseball favorite foods.
If you’re craving a sweet treat after a salty meal, you don’t have to go far. Casey’s offers Cracker Jack snacks and cotton candy, but another option is right across the street. Check out the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor for hand-scooped ice cream, floats, and sundaes.
5. Mobile Ordering
Don’t want to wait in line? Simply pull up your My Disney Experience App on your phone and place a Mobile Order for Casey’s Corner. Select your food and pay for it all from your phone. When you arrive, let Casey’s know you are there via the App and they will send you a notification when your food is ready. Head to the Mobile Order pick up window and skip the lines all together!
6. Location, location, location
Casey’s Corner has prime real estate on the corner of Main Street USA, making it hard to pass by on your way into the Magic Kingdom or on your way out of the park without stopping in to order a tasty meal or snack. It’s also a great place to meet up with your party during the day. This place is very popular, and crowds grow at lunch and dinnertime. Be prepared for a wait or consider eating here at a non-peak time, as Casey’s doesn’t accept reservations.
7. The Piano Man
Several times a day, an amazingly talented rag-time piano player entertains guests right outside of Casey’s Corner, playing both music from the era and Disney tunes. Grab some hot dogs and a table and enjoy the show.
8. Outdoor seating
Casey’s Corner offers a limited amount of indoor seating, but there are plenty of covered tables if you choose to dine outside. I love enjoying a meal from Casey’s at an outdoor table, listening to the piano player and watching the hustle and bustle of Main Street flow by.
9. After dinner shopping
I love how Casey’s Corner is conveniently connected to the Emporium, the largest gift shop in the Magic Kingdom. When you’re done with your meal, stroll through the eye-catching displays of toys, apparel, and souvenirs for everyone on your list without having to leave the comfort of air conditioning.
