Disneyland Corn Dog

This Disneyland Corn Dog recipe is as close as you’ll get to the Little Red Wagon! It’s made with a crunchy honey and buttermilk batter and fried to perfection. Serve with plenty of ketchup and yellow mustard on the side!

What’s in the Disneyland Corn Dog Recipe?

The Little Red Wagon employees told us that their Disneyland Corn Dog recipe uses a chicken and beef hot dog as the base, and most Disney message boards have confirmed it’s the John Morrell brand.

The Little Red Wagon is located on Disneyland’s Main Street, right beside the Plaza Inn. And most critics have confirmed it’s probably the best corn dog you’ll ever eat!

This is Disneyland’s Little Red Wagon corn dog.

Disneyland’s corn dog is often served with sliced apples or a small bag of chips.If you can’t make it to the Little Red Wagon, they also sell corn dogs at Disneyland in the Stage Door Cafe in Frontierland, and Corn Dog Castle inside California Adventure Park.

At Corn Dog Castle, you have the option to buy their “Hot Link” corn dog. Personally, I think it doesn’t matter what kind of hot dog you actually use. We like to use the Foster Farms Turkey Dogs for this recipe since my wife doesn’t eat beef.

How many calories are in the Disneyland Corn Dog?

According to several nutrition sites, Disneyland corn dog calories are approximately 375, but I suspect it could be much more. But who’s counting anyway? Haha!

Ingredients for the Disneyland Corn Dog

  • Mix together egg, buttermilk, vegetable oil and honey.

  • Fill a tall glass with the cornbread batter.
  • Skewer the hot dogs with a popsicle stick or wooden skewer. Spoon on more batter to ensure every part of the dog is coated in batter. The thicker the better!
