You got me curious @BGWnut . The Mickey Mouse Club song was "Hot Dog!" and had the lyric ”hot diggity dog" in it.

Wikipedia says it was popularized by a 1956 Perry Como hit "Hot Diggity! (Dog Diggity Boom). The phrase dates back to the 20''s from an Al Jolson song.

And now a long distance dedication from a listener in...

Why not instead of hotdog and chips, try Italian mild sausage and arancini...ok, maybe too rich for a 5 year old’s taste buds...or sausage and panelle or taralli.

Ooh! A restaurant of Italian street food!

Hell, go the olive garden route and make breadstick sandwiches would be thematically better. But this is Festa...

Because that would be taking a step backward into falso italiano.
I was trying to think more authentic and street foodie...like dogs and chips.
🤷🏼‍♂️

I'm not going to shit on this. Good luck getting authentic anything for 5 dollars at a theme park. This isn't a bad deal. Kids like hot dogs. It works.
I agree. This same thing is like $10 at WCUSA. It's a nice cheap way to feed your kids

Never said it wasn't a good deal for park food, more just grumbling about that it's not a good option that lends to the theme of the area it's served in. Because a slice of pizza would be too hard to sell...

Theming in Festa is loose at best. And the pizza was inedible. So, I, personally, don't miss it.
How hard could a simple grilled cheese panini be then - Italian enough in name if not execution. Throw in a cold cut or two and maybe a leafy green of some sort with tomato for an upcharge. Boom, done!

I think it's admirable to try to offer food that fits into the particular hamlet's theme with food offerings, but the goal is to offer food that'll sell with a good profit margin. I think you'll still see some "regional" offerings, but also more "Americanized" menu items as palates of guests change. I think the days of "only Italian food in Italy" and "only German food Germany" are pretty much over.

NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Clearly, you never tried the Tempesto Panini. I did not know people could make food that repulsive. Just thinking about it is making me queasy.
Clearly I did not - didn't realize that was ever a thing. Thanks for the heads up

While hot dogs don’t fit into the theme of Festa, is there even a consistent theme in the hamlet at the moment? Also, why are people complaining about a deal that happens once a week in the back section of a dead end area in the park? I’m personally fine with this it’s a pretty solid deal themepark price wise and I imagine people strolling through on a Tuesday might purchase the combo just for the value.
