No. 66: Corn Dog from Disney California Adventure's Corn Dog Castle

Welcome to the Weekly's list of our 100 Favorite Dishes for 2011! Tune in every day until we get to número uno! Now, on to the latest entry.

The "Happiest Place on Earth" creates some of the best snacks in Orange County, as far as annual passholders are concerned. Selling approximately 1,000 corn dogs daily, the Corn Dog Castle video was featured on Disneyland's Facebook page right after the 4th of July. While it requires no introduction, it is reassuring to note that Disney execs know when not to mess with a good thing, as Edwin's post on the time they tried to change the corndog batter explains.

To the parent (in the video) who likes, "...that you can get a corn dog with the healthy option of apples." - Who wants to be eating apple slices with their corn dog? If you want to eat "healthy", go get a petite Dole whip at the Tiki Room or monstrous turkey leg from outdoor vending in the hub; anything besides battered and deep fried meat of questionable origin. Then again, guests don't visit the mouse to eat healthy.
