REVIEW: New Vegan Plant-Based Slaw Dog Strikes Out at Casey’s Corner in the Magic Kingdom

We’re at the beloved Casey’s Corner to try the new Plant-Based Slaw Dog. Walt Disney World recently announced the arrival of many vegan plant-based menu offerings resortwide. With guests having a variety of dietary needs, this is a welcome addition to the plentiful options already on property. Guest can look for a green leaf icon next to vegan plant-based dishes on menus.

Plant-Based Menu Casey's Corner

Casey’s Corner has a new hitter on the team, the Plant-Based Slaw Dog. The new vegan dog comes as a meal with your choice of apple slices or French fries and costs $11.49.

There are 3 different components that make this dish possible. First, we have the dog itself which is a Hot Italian Beyond Sausage by Beyond Meat. Next, we have the slaw, comprised of cabbage, white onions, fresh cilantro, shredded rainbow carrots, kale, corn, peppers, and BBQ vegan aioli. Finally, the dog is wrapped in a soft warm bun for completion.

The Slaw Dog as a whole was very tasty. The sausage had a nice snap when bitten into, and the slaw was flavorful and creamy. We chose French fries as our side, and those were as good as they can get for Disney fries.

However, despite the sausage being a Hot Italian, it did not come at a hot enough temperature for our liking. The sausage was also lacking any spice or flavor. When eating the sausage alone, it was puzzling to figure out if all the flavor was just in the slaw and the BBQ vegan aioli on top… but then again, that’s kind of how hot dogs usually work. (The condiments form a large part of the flavor profile.)

Nevertheless, the Plant-Base Slaw Dog did not hit a home run, but it did make the team. Menu options like this make it so that everyone can have peace of mind when eating at Walt Disney World. If this plant-based menu item has you hungry for more, head on over and check out all the other new vegan food reviews!

They can’t all be homeruns, I reckon, but I’d at least try getting to first base with it.

Can I ask why nearly all the vegan options you report on have a negative twist? surely disney deserve a pat on the back for catering for everyone?

More than half have been positive. Simply offering it doesn’t mean they deserve positive reviews.

Well, the majority of the vegan options don’t taste like the product that it’s purporting to replace. This “Slaw Dog” doesn’t taste like a traditional hot dog (or hot Italian sausage for that matter) topped with any kind of slaw I’ve ever had so I would also give it a negative twist. If the taste of the offering is recognizable relative to what it’s supposed to emulate/replace then it would earn a decent review, no participation trophy here.

That said, a vegetarian/vegan may not have ever tasted a traditional hot dog, so an equivalent taste need not matter entirely.

We had this yesterday and thought it was really good. The sausage link itself is mild but the whole assembled package is quite tasty. Would definitely get it again.

I had this dish twice last spring. Maybe it changed because I and others thought it was phenomenal.

I had this during our trip in July and it was phenomenal!!! Bummed to hear it’s not consistent.
