History of Angry Dogs
Angry Dogs opened in June 2018 along with the rest of the newly re-themed Pixar Pier area. It replaced the former Hot Dog Hut quick service stand that was in Paradise Pier. The new stand ties into the Pixar theme of Pixar Pier with its bright colors and theming inspired by the character Anger from the Disney/Pixar film Inside Out. The spicy Angry Dog options also fit the hot tempered personality of this character. Since opening, Angry Dogs has become a go-to for fans looking for a quick service hot dog meal with a kick of spice and fun theming. Its location along the Pixar Pier walkway makes it easy to grab a hot dog while taking in the sights of this land.
Angry Dogs receives positive reviews from Disney guests looking for a flavorful hot dog meal. Visitors say the spicy Angry Dog delivers on bringing the heat with its chili pepper bun and spicy salsa. The theming and Pixar references are also a hit. Some drawbacks mentioned in reviews include the high costs for a basic hot dog meal. Additionally, the heat level may not be enough for those wanting an extremely spicy experience.
Whether you’re an “Inside Out” fan, a hot dog enthusiast, or just looking for a fun snack in between attractions, Angry Dogs is a delightful pit stop. The Pixar-inspired touches, from the menu names to the décor, make this more than just a meal – it’s a memorable part of the Disneyland experience.
*As always, prices, hours, and offerings can change, so it’s a great idea to check the latest updates via the Disneyland app or official website before planning your visit.
