REVIEW: New Chicken Corn Dog Nuggets Are Ruining Lives at Casey’s Corner in the Magic Kingdom

When Casey’s Corner took off footlongs from the menu this weekend, we were disappointed, but it wasn’t necessarily the end of the world. (After all, footlongs are still available at the best counter service restaurant on property: Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe.) However, once you mess with corn dogs, that’s when things get personal.

And things just got very personal at the Magic Kingdom.

It seems more than one menu change has quietly affected the hot dog purveyor of the Most Magical Place on Earth. The fan-favorite corn dog nuggets seem to have switched to a chicken dog interior, much to the chagrin of all-beef dog fans. (I personally am a fan of turkey/chicken sausage, but I’ll have you know this change drew shudders from the entire WDWNT crew.) With no outward changes on the menu, one would have to order (or otherwise be tipped off by a Cast Member) to know that the change has occurred.

And now, onto the more burning question: How do they taste? Well, if you found the last version of corn dog nuggets to be too meaty, you’re in luck. The new chicken corn dog nuggets surprisingly taste only slightly different, with the batter mainly overpowering the mild chicken flavor. At one point, all you pretty much taste is batter. They might as well call these corn nuggets from now on.

Upon inquiring what the bland mystery meat of the month is (they don’t just do monthly hot dogs), all we got was “chicken.” Apparently, this could just be a test, but given all the negative feedback Casey’s has received so far on these, we can’t expect them to last long, at least not as the sole option for corn dog nuggets. (And as we all know, options cost money, so having both might also not be viable. We’ll have to either make do with bland corn dog nuggets or have a sit-in protest at the hub.)

If you’re looking to ruin lives, or see a toddler cry, or are a rare chicken corn dog nugget enthusiast, they’re available as a meal (with fries) in Casey’s Corner for $8.99.

  1. That just sounds terrible! Hot dogs should be all beef – plain and simple. I do not know what is worse: a chicken hot dog or putting ketchup on a hot dog!

  2. Not advertising that these are chicken on the menu isn’t a good idea. As someone who is allergic to chicken, this would have been bad for me if i ordered and was not informed that they were not all beef like they have been.

    • Same! I would never have thought to ask such a thing since I’ve been enjoying the treat for years. Getting horrible stomach pain for a few days in Disney is not a great way to spend your vacation…

  3. This is the best article I have read on here in over a year, and the best you have ever written. Keep it up! I love the humor. Reminds me of when Tom was the only one writing reviews.👍

    • I agree! I wouldn’t think an article about corn dog nuggets would be so entertaining. Thanks for the giggles!

  4. There is something very off putting that the thought of eating chicken can be terrible bc it isnt beef (or a chicken allergy….eggs yes, allergy to just chicken isnt really a thing). The animal gave its life to be a fried thing you casually shove into your mouth. I get you like what you like but sheesh…respect the animals you eat.

  5. I have it on good authority that the corn dog nuggets at Casey’s have always been turkey…until now.

  6. I’m so ready to go back to WDW, I would eat the chicken corn nuggets… Though I would rather eat at Cosmic Ray’s. 👍

  7. Pass. If I wanted chicken I’d order chicken nuggets. If people don’t want beef or beef/pork hot dogs or corn dogs, they don’t have to order them. Turkey and chicken “hot dogs” should be clearly labeled as such.

  8. Disney is so determined to ruin everything to save pennies that it’s beyond silly. Every day I see another reason to be happy I’m not a pass holder anymore. Whoever thought it was a good idea to charge guests $9 for this garbage needs to be fired. The level of greed at WDW these days is simply astounding.

  9. NOOOOO these are my favorite park snack ever and I’m allergic to chicken! I very much hope they change back by the time we visit in September!

  10. Hot dogs at the park should not be chicken. There are already numerous establishments in MK serving breaded or battered chicken. Can we please have an alternative? When my child wants a corn dog nugget, they want a corn dog nugget, not a disguised chicken nugget. As for taking the foot long dogs off of the menu, I think that’s a mistake also. The foot-long dogs at Casey’s are iconic. Bring them back, please.
