As you can guess from our previous post and video on preparing for our Disney World road trip, we’re a tad excited about our visit. Of course riding some of our favourite family rides will be a priority, as well as a few new features, but indulging in Disney treats will be key too.
From a Dole Whip and Tonga Toast to Mickey Shaped Pretzels and caramel apples, we have a few favourites we like to enjoy in the park but thanks to the creativity of others you can also enjoy some of these at home now too. Here are some recipes for 11 of our favourite Disney treats.
Kona Café’s Tonga Toast, Disney Insider – Perhaps not the healthiest way to start your day but Disney is about a little indulgence. This double-decker banana stuffed cinnamon toast is perfect.
Mickey-Shaped Beignets, Babes in Disneyland – You may be surprised to hear that my first taste of beignets was in Disneyland. They instantly made my list of favourite snacks and even became a breakfast staple on a press trip during the Cars Land opening. Babes in Disneyland share a recipe straight from the executive pastry chef.
DIY Fresh Dole Whip, Happy Healthy Lunch – I love this delicious pineapple treat and this recipe gives you a healthy alternative. We even have the souvenir cups to serve them in.
Nutella and Fruit Waffle Sandwiches, Eat at Home Cooks – Why have I never thought of using waffles as a sandwich substitute? This sandwich idea from Sleepy Hallow in Walt Disney World is definitely on my list to try this year.
Mickey-Shaped Soft Pretzels, Honest & Truly – I love pretzels but shape them into little Mickey heads and they taste even better. Honest! These soft pretzel versions don’t look as detailed as the variety found in the park but they’ll still bring memories of Disney.
DIY Mickey and Minnie Caramel Apples, Home Is Where the Mouse Is – This is my favourite Disney treat. We love watching the bakers put the various themed character apples together through the display window on Main Street and Downtown Disney. Apple picking this fall is the perfect time to make some of these at home.
Disney Copy Cat Mint Julep, Curly Crafty Mom – I discovered this refreshing non-alcoholic treat in Disneyland (sadly it’s not yet available in Walt Disney World). Now I can recreate it at home for the whole family.
LeFou’s Brew (from Gaston’s Tavern), Doctor Disney – The Be Our Guest and Gaston’s Tavern dining experience is new to Walt Disney World’s Fantasyland so we have yet to try the LeFou’s Brew. If it’s anything like a said magical drink from “the other theme park” it will probably be popular with the kids.
The Kitchen Sink, Beaches and Cream Ice Cream Shop – Who doesn’t love ice cream? A visit to Beaches and Cream Ice Cream Shop located in Disney’s Beach Club Resort will reward the most ardent ice cream fan with the Kitchen Sink. We shared a video on recreating this family-size treat at home.
, The Disney Chef – The Big Thunder Ranch BBQ is a fun alternative to eating inside as you sit outside under the stars enjoying a family-style BBQ. Now you can bring this tasty dessert home for your own backyard.
O’Hana’s Pineapple Banana Bread Pudding, Big Bears Wife – O’Hana’s is always the spot we book for our first dinner when visiting Walt Disney World and this current trip is no different. Now I’ll be able to bring a little O’Hana home with me.
