Disney World Hamburgers and Hotdogs

Dave’s Thoughts -I love a good burger. I can live without the hot dog, but I do like a corn dog every so often. I do go on vacation and eat hamburgers. Lisa has no idea what she’s talking about. Any real hamburger connoisseur knows that Disney has some of the best. My number 1 place to get a hamburger at WDW is on the Boardwalk at the ESPN Club. They have a variety of burgers you can’t get anywhere else on property and they are quite tasty. There are many other places on property that have great burgers, but ESPN is number 1 in my book. As for hotdogs, I do stop at Casey’s Corner for some mini corn dogs on occasion. There are fun size and pretty tasty themselves. You just don’t get the hot cheese anymore, which I never ate.

Nick’s Thoughts - I’m not big on hotdogs, having them occasionally at Summer cookouts, but I looove cheeseburgers. They are one of my favorite things to eat. Anywhere. I know Lisa is going to say something along the lines of “We do not go on vacation to eat hamburgers.” and I know this not only because I just read it as she wrote her thoughts first, but also because she has said it several times on The Disney Exchange Podcast. But I do eat cheeseburgers at Walt Disney World. Probably at least once every trip. My favorite is the cheeseburger at Beaches and Cream at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club. This absolutely may be because it is inevitably followed by some sort of ice cream treat, but I’m sticking with that one.

Lisa’s Thoughts - We do not go on vacation to eat hamburgers and hotdogs (or pizza, come to think of it) - those are too easy to come by in everyday life and generally, Disney’s burgers and dogs (especially in the parks) tend to be run-of-the-mill at best.  The Duval Street Burger (“topped with Grilled Shrimp, Pepper Jack Cheese, Avocado, and Pico de Gallo on our Pineapple-Coconut Roll served with choice of French Fries, Marinated Coleslaw, or Homemade Potato Chips“, $17.49) at Old Key West’s Olivia’s Café is the exception to this rule and that baby is one seriously delicious burger!  Big enough to share, I highly recommend this culinary delight.  Plus, the casual homey atmosphere and excellent service at Olivia’s is worth the trip!

What about YOU?  Are you a fan of hamburgers and/or hotdogs at Walt Disney World?  Which ones are your favorite?
