Disneyland in California has Sleeping Beauty Castle. The Magic Kingdom in Florida has Cinderella Castle. Yester California Adventure has a castle too—the original Corn Dog Castle.

Actually, today’s Disney California Adventure also has Corn Dog Castle. Find out what’s changed in this updated and expanded Yesterland article.

  1. Fascinating article. Nearly $7 for a corn dog though? Ouch!

  2. With all this talk of the new big thunder tv series and the Tomorrowland movie, I hope they come out with a corn dog castle movie soon! A $7 corn dog deserves a little royal history in 3D.

    Seriously though… Never eaten there due to the line(and price didn’t help). I love splitting a pizza and salad at the beautiful gardens nearby, so I don’t get the line.

    • Your missing out. Those corn dogs are legendary. They’re also sold on main street USA, and frontierland on the stage door cafe(those come with fries instead of chips so that’s the best spot imo. They’re about twice the size of a normal corn dog, and delicious. You ought to try them sometime.

  3. Great Article Werner.

    I think that it fits in better that what was there before, as the new art work matches Goofy’s Sky School, and the 1920s, with the planes becoming used more often. Still, it is a popular location, but I have never eaten there, opting for the Pasta at the Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta or eating at the Paradise Garden Grill. Both of them serves great food, it is wet and full of flavour. DCA has really improved its catering with the new expansion. Maybe Disneyland should take note and start doing the same.

    Thanks Again Werner

  4. The hot-link corn dogs are my favorite. I wish there was a place in Disneyland that would sell them too.

  5. The tacky sign never enticed me to eat there. I always worry that cheap signs mean cheap meats. The price is a bit steep too. I wonder if they had did something more appealing for the facade if they might have gotten more business. I think now this place is definitely a tourist trap.

  6. Thanks Werner, your stories are always great and informative. Yes the dogs are a little pricey but with the AP discount they are around $6.00. Still pricey but good.

  7. I miss those “sweet” options from Corndog Castle.

  8. The Corn Dog Castle is fantastic! I ate there the day after DCA opened in 2001, I ate there a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve eaten there every time I’ve been to DCA in between (aside from a trip made during the construction period).

    $7 for a corn dog that size isn’t unreasonable. These aren’t little Oscar Meyer wieners we’re talking about — they’re big hot dogs. The hot links are the best, although, to my taste, they’re not really all that hot. Not hot at all compared to hot links we get here in Texas, anyway.

    Honestly, the corn dogs are better than the food at the nearby pizza & pasta place. The pizza and pasta are all a little bland and uninteresting, but the corn dogs have some authenticity and deep-fried deliciousness to them.
