Located in Magic Kingdom, Casey's Corner is one of the cheapest restaurants at Disney World.
I went there for lunch and spent $38.08 trying four of its popular menu items.
The food, especially the corn-dog nuggets, was delicious and the service was excellent.
Casey's Corner, a quick-service spot in Magic Kingdom, is one of the cheapest restaurants at Disney World.
Casey's Corner is a quick-service restaurant located at the end of Main Street USA near the entrance of Magic Kingdom.
The restaurant, which serves lunch and dinner, is known for its baseball theme and menu of American favorites including hot dogs, corn-dog nuggets, and french fries.
Although the restaurant encouraged mobile-ordering, I chose to head inside.
Outside the restaurant, there were multiple signs with a QR code you could scan to place your order through the My Disney Experience app.
Although the restaurant encouraged mobile-ordering, I didn't want to use the feature. Instead, I was able to go inside to place my order and pay at a register.
The line to order was shorter than I expected considering the parade was wrapping up.
The 3 p.m. Festival of Fantasy parade was making its way down Main Street USA, so I was surprised by how short the line was to order food at Casey's.
But I was happy since I was quite hungry.
I only had to wait about five minutes to place my order with an employee who was very friendly. They did a wonderful job at repeating everything back to me to make sure it was correct, which I appreciated since it was a bit noisy.
The worker who gave me my tray was both entertaining and friendly.
I only had to wait about five minutes for my food, which I was, again, pleasantly surprised by. I've never had to wait an extremely long time at other quick-service restaurants at Magic Kingdom, but it usually takes more than five minutes for my food to be ready.
I actually enjoyed waiting for my order since the employee who was in charge of calling the "batters" (guests) up to the "plate" (pick-up counter) was very energetic and friendly. He made small talk with me and the other guests around.
Even during a moment as simple as waiting for food, he was able to make magic for the guests, which enhanced the experience. I got a "magical moment," as it's often referred to at the parks, when he gave me a free large Coke, which I wasn't expecting.
The restaurant has plenty of outdoor seating areas with beautiful views of the park.
I was surprised by the amount of outdoor seating the restaurant had. I didn't have to worry about whether or not my party was going to have a place to eat because there were both tables with seats and standing tables available.
But I was glad I was able to find a table with chairs since I prefer to sit while I eat — my feet were sore from a long day of playing in the park.
Since it was a cooler day, I didn't mind the outdoor dining. Plus, the tables provided a beautiful view of Cinderella Castle and the "Hub Grass" area in front of it.
I ordered a lot of food because I wanted to try as much as I could.
Since I wanted to really get a feel for the restaurant, I tried a little bit of everything.
I ordered the plant-based loaded-slaw dog ($12.29), corn-dog nuggets ($10.49), chili-cheese fries ($6.49), and a pressed-penny silk pie ($6.49).
I knew it was going to be a lot of food, and I didn't want it to go to waste, so I invited my sister and friend to tag along. I was grateful I did because there is no way I would've been able to finish it all by myself.
The corn-dog nuggets were sweet and delicious.
I'd never tried corn-dog nuggets before, so I didn't have any expectations about what they'd taste like.
I typically don't eat hot-dog meat, but the corn-dog nuggets are a Casey's Corner staple and fan favorite, so I made an exception.
The flavor was tasty, overall, and I liked the sweetness of the cornmeal.
The meal also came with just the right number of nuggets. I was glad they came with fries — $10.49 for the corn-dog nuggets alone would've been a lot.
The plant-based loaded-slaw dog was very flavorful.
Although Casey's Corner has some larger hot dogs, I liked that the plant-based slaw dog was a more average size.
I thought the plant-based "sausage" was really delicious and particularly liked the barbecue vegan aioli topping.
It also came with a choice of a side, so I picked the french fries and thought they were good for standard fries.
The chili-cheese fries were good, but I think I'll stick to regular french fries next time.
I was inclined to try the chili-cheese fries since I don't have them often.
They were good, but I was hoping for a bit more chili on top considering they cost $2 more than a standard order of fries.
I was happy I tried them though because the cheese was really delicious.
I couldn't leave without trying dessert.
One of my favorite parts of the meal was dessert. I tried the pressed-penny silk pie.
As a chocolate lover, this dessert was one of the best I've had from a quick-service restaurant at Magic Kingdom.
It was definitely worth $6.49.
While I ate, I was able to watch the famous piano player.
As soon as we got our food, the Casey's Corner pianist started his set.
We had a great view from our table and I enjoyed listening to him play Christmas classics in addition to a couple of Disney favorites.
He even played my song request "Happily Ever After," the theme of one of Magic Kingdom's fireworks shows. It felt extra special to hear it while I ate.
I will definitely be visiting Casey's Corner again.
As someone who visits Magic Kingdom about three times a week, I am always looking for ways to save money, especially on food and snacks.
The four menu items I ordered cost $38.08, which I thought was very reasonable considering how much food we got.
Now that I've tried a sampling of what the restaurant has to offer, I'll definitely be returning to Casey's Corner for the corn-dog nuggets and the pressed-penny silk pie.
