17 Official Disney Recipes That'll Make Your Kitchen Smell Like Main Street USA
When most people think about Disney vacations, I'm willing to bet that food is usually top of mind (second to your favorite rides, of course). In fact, some of the best meals I've ever had have been at Disney. We're talking creative desserts, movie-themed snacks, chef's tables, and five-diamond-rated restaurant meals here.
Throughout the years, I've attempted to re-create some of those meals with the help of Disney Parks Blog recipes, which come right from the Disney parks and resorts! These official recipes include iconic dishes like churros, Mickey-shaped beignets, and even the pineapple whip soft serve. If you're looking for something more savory, you might be more into Disney's shrimp ceviche or an egg-white frittata. Either way, once you've tried these recipes, you won't believe you waited so long to make some of your favorite theme park meals at home.
Keep reading for 17 official Disney recipes to re-create now, and get ready to feel like you're right back at the park!
Egg-White Vegetable Frittata With Macadamia Nut Pesto
For a taste of the islands, consider the egg-white frittata from Disney's Aulani Resort in Hawaii. The dish could pass as a large breakfast or a light dinner that will transport you right to the beach.

Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich
Hollywood Studios is home to a lot of our favorite snacks, but this grilled cheese is one of the best. Cheese is literally oozing out of the cut sandwich, and the bread is toasted to perfection for a great texture contrast of crunchy and soft.

Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup

S.E.A. Shu Mai
Magic Kingdom's Skipper Canteen serves up some yummy dumplings, including these shu mai. They're filled with pork and shrimp, steamed, and served warm. These might be a little challenging, especially if you aren't used to wrapping dumplings, but it's a fun recipe to try out nonetheless.

The Grey Stuff
You know what I'm about to say: "Try the grey stuff, it's delicious!" And we can attest that it actually is delicious. This supereasy snack comes together in minutes, and even though it's supposed to go in the fridge for an hour, we've been known to eat it right out of the bowl when we're done mixing.

Mickey Mouse-Shaped Beignets
Getting a Mickey Mouse-shaped snack is basically a Disney vacation requirement. The soft pillows of dough are covered in powdered sugar and served piping hot! If you don't have a Mickey-shaped cookie cutter, rounds or squares will work, and the final product will taste just as good.

Shrimp Ceviche With Lime-Mint Foam
Bring a little bit of Florida to your home with this shrimp ceviche. The dish is a lovely lunch option and is filled with succulent shrimp, sweet mango, and spicy jalepeño for a trip right to Mickey's own version of flavor town!

Jack-Jack's Num Num Cookies
