Let's see, I've gone to Disneyland about every other day this month and even for me that's a lot. When you go that often it comes to pass that you run across things that a normal tourist wouldn't. Some of those treats can be found at the Coca-Cola Refreshment Corner off of Main Street.
One of the few original stores since Disneyland first opened, the Corner is a likely tourist spot for a quick hot dog and Coke, they also offer chili, pretzels and kid's packs. But if you look a little closer you'll find some hidden treats you can't find anywhere in the park.
Themed out in 'Coke memorabilia' style, the interior has a vintage feel with Tiffany style Coke lighting and Coke collectible prints on the walls. Outside there is a ragtime pianist that plays every hour and sometimes if you're lucky you can catch a mini show and Alice and the Mad Hatter will engage you in a lively game of musical chairs.
Seeing as how it is Coke corner, of course they serve regular Coke but they also offer specialty flavored Coke: Cherry, Raspberry and Vanilla. The 'splash' of sweet syrups are nothing like bottled Coke you find at your corner store but are reminiscent of a custom made soda fountain drink of a bygone era.
Sweet and flavorful, the cherry makes the Coke a BRIGHT red and it has a wonderful, albeit unnatural, cherry taste. Flavored Cokes from Coke corner are one of my favorite little known park treats.
For those of you with even more adventurous spirit, Coke corner also offers a Mac n Cheese hot dogs with bacon bits to go with that flavored Coke. End that meal with some Disney cotton candy and you might find yourself in the food coma of your dreams.
