When a Dog Is More Than a Dog at Walt Disney World Resort

Last year we posted about “designer burgers” making waves all across Walt Disney World Resort. This year, the trend is designer dogs – way beyond the old-fashioned frankfurter with a splash of mustard and ketchup.

Here are some of our favorite finds – have you tried any of these meals in a bun?

“Mac “Pork “Burrito

At Fairfax Fare at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, check out the dog topped with mac ‘n cheese and a drizzle of truffle oil. Or the one with barbecued pork and slaw (a version is also served at Downtown Disney Marketplace). Maybe you’ll order the burrito dog with lettuce, tomato, cheddar, jalapeños and sour cream.


In Magic Kingdom Park, Casey’s Corner on Main Street, U.S.A., serves the classic Chicago-style dog topped with tomato slices, dill pickle, relish and banana peppers. The popular eatery has its version of the ‘cue dog with pulled pork, slaw and barbecue sauce. And we still love their chili dog with a flourish of cheddar.

“Philly “Taco

Over in Tomorrowland at the Lunching Pad, order a Philly cheese steak hot dog topped with beef, onions, peppers and cheese sauce. Or the taco dog with ground beef, lettuce, cheese, salsa and sour cream. (A similar version is over at Downtown Disney Marketplace snack locations.) Nearby, Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe brings us a deluxe chili-cheese with crispy onion straws on top.


You can splash ‘n burn (calories) after downing the tropic dog at Blizzard Beach, with spicy banana peppers, tomatoes and onions, or the pretzel dog stuffed inside a chewy pretzel bun.

ESPN Club does the Italian hot dog with fried potatoes, sautéed onions, peppers and mustard, along with the classic chili dog.

Hold the dog!


  • They look so yummy….but wishing for a veggie dog option. Veggie dogs have come a long way and we love them! Please think about it! THANKS!

  • Are there any plans to offer veggie dogs in the future?

  • Are any of these going to be available at Disneyland as well?

  • No mention of the Corn Dogs from Casey’s Corner in the Magic Kingdom? That’s a travesty!!!

  • Oh man. I am going to CRUSH all three of those Fairfax Fare dogs during the first Star Wars Weekend in May.

  • Thanks for posting this! I will definitley try some of these dogs next time the family and I go down to Disney World.

  • Are any of these places on the Dining Plan? I’m drooling at the photos! Have to have the mac & cheese and pulled pork dogs next trip!

  • Wow. Walt Disney World and hot dogs. To my wife’s dismay, my two absolute favorite discussion topics. I, for one, encourage more frequent “frank” discussion on this site. Bravo!
