More Walt Disney World Resort Stories

‘Delicious Disney Just for Kids’

The newest cookbook in the “Delicious Disney” series is hot off the presses – featuring 20 easy-to-make favorites from the restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Cruise Line and Disneyland Resort. And while we chose recipes that are well, child’s play, we think most grown-ups also will love the ease of recipes for the Big Thunder ribs, BLT Tomato Soup from Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant and a chicken Caesar wrap from Disney Cruise Line.

  • Pat, it would be way less delicious with skim milk. Amazingly enough fat makes things taste delicious.

    With everything, moderation.

  • I attempted to order this cookbook by phone and the cast member said they do not have any books with this title. When I suggested phoning in later in the week she said they would not have it then either because there is not a book with that name (I read it to her directly from the blog and said as much). Perhaps it will be available online soon?

  • Looks wonderful with all the fruit! Would not be the same with skim milk and lite cream. Everything in moderation!

  • Bummer. Just tried to order the book and was told it’s not in stock yet and is scheduled to arrive between now and June.

  • All those fresh fruits make the recipe look wonderful. It is also fairly healthy, especially compared to some other options.

    After I have tried it as written, I may make changes like using low-fat sweetened condensed milk.

  • I would think that this would be quite fattening considering you used condensed milk and heavy cream.
    Why not make it more healthy by using skim milk and lite cream?
