    I don't know whats with that Hot Dog, but I always stop by on Main Street USA for a bite! It has become popular over time and now there are lines out the door!

    One of the best ways to end a great day at the Magic Kingdom is to stop by Casey's as we make our way to the exit and grab a table and chairs and enjoy the hot dogs while you see thousands of people exiting the park through Main Street. The hot dogs, though pricey, are really good.

    Love chocolate and bananas but not together. Of course how can you not love a Hot Dog from Casey's Corner. Just the smell as you walk by just makes your mouth water.

    Honestly, the smell of the freshly made Waffle Cones in that area is what gets me. It smells like heaven and with some ice cream on a hot day.. mmm..

    But my vote goes to the Banana Chocolate Gooey Cake.. just when you think you're way too full for even one more bite.. here comes along one of the BEST desserts I've ever had.

    I don't understand how this is close. A basic hotdog against one of the most unique and best desserts around.

    Sorry, but I figure something called Banana Chocolate Gooey Cake has to win "Best Name", at least.

    Its more than just a hot dog.


    People make their own decision up for whatever reason. I feel that this was going to be a close one due to the way both bites make people feel (old time dogs vs I can't eat anymore....maybe desert)
