    Re: Corn Dogs

    I vote for the "Little Red Wagon" corndogs too.

    Oh, and Trivia: That little truck is fully functional - pull all the plugs and disconnect all the hoses, and they start it up and drive it off-stage when they need it gone.

    The "Between Takes Catering" truck at DCA has no powertrain and is sitting up on steel struts behind the tires. Ain't going nowhere.

    A little more trivia based on my observations: The red truck appears to be constructed on a 1928-1929 Model A Ford chassis, with a few of the original body panels. I would be curious to know if it retains its original vintage engine.

    IIRC someone once said it's a modern chassis with a carbureted 289 or 302 V-8, and the hood and fender body panels are reproductions. Next time I'll have to look and/or take pictures.

    I may have to defer on this one. I may be confusing the Corn Dog truck with the Carnation Truck, which was based on a 1931 Ford chassis. Walt's firetruck also appears to use a few vintage pieces, though most of it is reproduced.

    Looking again at photos of the corn dog truck, it does appear to be a modern chassis with reproduction body panels. (Though some are similar to 28-29 Ford, most are reminiscent of an earlier era.)

    Sorry, I don't mean to derail this thread, but whatever happened to the Carnation truck and the Global Van Lines truck?

    Re: Corn Dogs

    I would have to say the Disneyland corn dogs were much better.

    Re: Corn Dogs

    Re: Corn Dogs

    I love the Corn Dogs at DLR! My mom asked literally five times, at least "are there corn dogs here like at Disneyland" on our last visit to WDW. (That was my hint that we were spending too much time on Main Street and we left. )

    But yes, my tastebuds say that they're the same.

    Re: Corn Dogs

    It's a tradition with me and the wife that everytime we go there we have to get at least one of them or it's just not a complete trip!

    I've never tried the corn dogs at either park, but did see someone biting into one - these things are HUGE!

    Re: Corn Dogs

    I've had corn dogs on both sides and I have to say that I really didn't notice a large enough difference to make me say that one was better than the other - I mean we are talking about corn dogs. I would think that they use basically the same batter and dogs at both parks.
