Making WDW food at home

Who here has tried making WDW recipes rither from the different websites or Disney cookbooks? How has it turned out? Have you modified any recipes?

I have made Cheddar cheese soup and pretzel bread and it was so delicious that it was almost as good as being at Epcot. But yesterday I made Tonga Toast and I don't know if my bread was too fluffy and absorbed too much oil or what but it was a greasy mess and not really yummy.

How has cooking Disney at home gone for others?

I have made zebra domes three times now. It takes me two days to make, and I don't have a small flexi-pan dome thing, so my zebra domes are about the size of a muffin (but then, more for us to eat, right?). And I usually do it the flip way, where the zebra dome is actually chocolate ganache and the stripes are white. The recipe from Disney makes about 48 of these huge muffin size domes. But they sure are delish!!!

My DSis made the Caramel Apple Pie from WCC and it was pretty close to the original. She had complimented the waitress about it and the next thing we knew, she was hightailing it across the restaurant with a copy of the recipe for DSis.

I got the Delicious Disney Cookbook this summer and I've made the Maple Glazed Salmon with Onion-Mashed Potatoes from Animator's Palate and the Chocolate Souffle from Palo's. Both were amazing but I have to say that unless you have the patience for complicated recipes, these may not be for you. The book also has the Tonga Toast recipe but I have yet to try it at home.

The Maui Scalloped Potatoes recipe is fantastic! I make them all the time. Rather than use heavy cream, I use 2% milk and it always turns out sooo good.

We also like the Pineapple Bread and that also is a hit each time we make it.
There's two versions--one from the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show and one from 'Ohana.

Disney puts out a cookbook with recipes from the restaurants. I actually have the first one ever made and most of the restaurants or dishes in it don't even exist anymore (it has the only pie crust recipe that I can get to work).
I have one of the select recipe books from F&W also but haven't tried any yet.

The recipes in the one that I have are pretty darn complicated as well, but good.

Here is an online list of a lot of Disney recipes to get you started.

Believe it or not, many of the chefs will share their recipes with diners. That's how my DSis got the Caramel Apple Pie recipe. If you happen to especially enjoy something during your visit, don't hesitate to let your server know and request a copy of the recipe if the chef makes it available. They're often happy to help you out.

I guess I have made a lot more recipes than I first thought. I have made the Coco Cola barbecue MANY times, and it is always good. I've also made the grapefruit cake from scratch and also used a box cake mix and instead of' adding all water I added a grapefruit juce/water combo to get the right flavor and then made the grapefruit cream cheese frosting.

At the Land they had this apple cake dessert that was so delicious when I was pregnant I literally stayed awake at night thinking about it. I finally used the guest service email asking for the recipe and the head chef of the Sunshine Seasons Food Fair email me the recipe. I tried to make it but it didn't turn out quite the same. To be honest, any time I get a recipe right I'm surprise. And my husband and kids are too. And the dog is disappointed because we will actually be eating what I make.

Is the Delicious Disney recipe book sold at the parks still? How much is it?

They usually have the latest edition available at most of the resort gift shops and world of disney.

The last edition was half price at the Disney character outlet store that is in the outlet mall about a mile from DTD (worth the cab fare to go over there and get all the souveniers of park merchandise).

We made the Mickey mashed potatoes from Chef Mickey's and they love them, my sister first made them and my DD was dying for me to make them when we got back.

I've made a few. I found the recipes at the allears.net site. The links below have recipes and pictures of how it turned out.

50s Prime Time Meatloaf - this was really good and easy. It makes 2 meatloaves, so I put one in the freezer for another time.

Boardwalk Brownies - From the Boardwalk Bakery. the recipe was a little wonky, so I tweaked it a bit. They were really good.

Cottage Pie - From Rose and Crown. This is a quickie version, but very good.

TiffanyK - We started using some of the recipes from your blog last week, and I thank you!

DH loves to cook, and he has 3 of the WDW cookbooks. He's made the butternut squash soup from Boma and the Goat Cheese Ravoli from the California Grill most recently. Both turned out pretty well, but those recipes are huge!
