Have you ever been at a Disney Park, in line for a snack like some of Walt’s Chili or a Mickey pretzel, when suddenly you see something on the menu that you’ve never seen before and that thing is the Mac & Cheese Hot Dog and your life is never the same again? Well, that exact thing just happened to us. (Editors Note: this isn’t even fiction; our experience of this dog happened exactly this way.) We want to explore this whole new world we’re seeing through Mac & Cheese Hot Dog-colored glasses.
Let us introduce you to the hot dog we are referring to that has stolen our hearts:

You’re probably really curious about what this hot dog looks like in action, so here are some gifs to help you get a better idea of what this beauty looks like in the round.
Finally, we used the Disney Memories App to properly illustrate our love for the Mac & Cheese Hot Dog, the most regal of all the Disneyland snacks. We’re glad to live in a world where you exist, new best friend. See you next time we’re at the Park.
