2 Refreshment Corner and 2 Casey’s Corner

Heading toward the castle and closing on the hub, your left hear may sense a joyful piano, your left nostril a fresh ketchup scent. This Disney signature counter restaurants proudly bares its white and red colors in two coastal states plus France and Japan : A corner, some hot dogs and plenty of Coca Cola, this article is about the 4 Refreshment Corners style restaurants of the 6 Magic Kingdoms.

Even though its sponsors and soda fountain style both define those 4 locations as one family, there are 2 different types of “Corners” and 3 different designs.

The first design made of red brick and white wood stood in Disneyland on its opening day.
Over the year the oldest running fast food inside the berm grew very famous for its music. Rod Miller hold its white piano for 30 years before retiring in 2006.

It is smaller than its 3 counterparts but benefit from a large adjacent terrace called Corner Café. Interior is bright red and white, perfect to wait in line for your refreshment.

The other unique design is in Asia where sits the other Refreshment Corner. Red brick and wood all along but with a major twist. Being a “corner” in Tokyo Disneyland binds you to World Bazaar’s canopy, and so that particular Coca Cola vendor leans right on it as if it was part of support. Like the venue opposing it, it harbors an impressively rich spiral stair enclaved in a giant gazebo. This impressive piece of craftsmanship acts as a little turret towering Corner’s terrace. The theme and feel is very similar to its homonymous sister from California, as only one corner room circles its massive pearly white counter.

The 2 last corners from France and Florida share a particular theme, America’s most popular sport: Baseball. They also share a name inspired by the most famous poem on the sport, Thayers’ Casey at the Bat.

Those Casey’s Corner, both colored in lemon yellow welcomes visitors in the familiar counter centered room but have some extra space. Passing the counter on the hub side is another room dressed like a sport’s fan room from the past. They also propose a terrace alternative.

When Refreshment Corners can only sit guests on their respective terrasse, Casey’s Corners give theirs an indoor option, decorated with flags, signed collectibles and Corner’s distinctive Coca Cola luminaires.
