The first Disney theme park, Disneyland, opened in 1955. The restaurants there have been serving up yummy recipes ever since. If you think about it, there are actually two types of Disney inspired recipes… copycats of restaurant dishes and those created in the kitchen’s of Mickey fans everywhere.
No matter what food category you choose, Disney inspired recipes are waiting for you. You’re not just limited to The Lady and the Tramp’s spaghetti. When you’re in the mood to whip up a sweet treat, you’re in luck. Want to bake a tasty entree your kids will love? You can do that too. Here are 10 ideas to get you started.
