The other day I realized that I have unintentionally shared a ton of recipes from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. Maybe it’s because the resort is so popular, or because it features two sit-down eateries plus a character meal. Maybe it’s because I love tropical flavors and unique cuisine. Or maybe it’s because I’ve stayed there […]
Yesterday I proved I was a responsible, mature human being by listing some very practical tips for preparing for your Walt Disney World vacation when you are 30 days or less away from calling Disney home. But, as I have always said, I’m really just a child, cleverly disguised as a responsible adult. And the […]
People, I am just under 30 days from my next Walt Disney World vacation. 30 days! I can already hear the tropical sounds of the Polynesian Village Resort lazily floating through the ridiculously cold winter air up here in New England. I can picture that gorgeous lobby, I can almost smell the Tonga Toast, and […]
While I’m a big eater of fried chicken (seriously, big fan… Big, big fan), I’m not actually a big maker of fried chicken. I figured that, for the time and hassle, I was better off wandering over to that fast food eatery run by a certain white-haired Colonel. But I love Disney, and I love […]

When I first start writing on TheDisneyChef.com way back in 2011, I never thought it would grow as it has. 200 recipes, over 30,000 followers on social media, and millions of readers later(yep, you read that right… Millions… Eeeek!), I still can’t believe what all I’ve done and […]
Disneyland is having quite the party, thanks to the Diamond Celebration commemorating Disneyland’s 60th anniversary this year. Special events, a gorgeous castle makeover, a stunning new night parade, updates to rides, and of course, fun celebratory foods are all a part of the experience.
When it comes to healthy treats, it doesn’t get much healthier (and more tasty) than fresh tomato, fresh basil, and balsamic vinegar. Enter Hollywood & Vine’s classic bruschetta (pssst… It’s also served at Mama Melrose’s). It’s sweet, flavorful, and something worth craving without breaking your diet. Did I mention it’s easy to make and you […]

What’s more comforting than rich, flavorful cinnamon bread, blended together with bananas, spices, raisins, nuts, and topped with a silky vanilla sauce? This warm, cozy dish is a classic at Tusker House at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, served at the buffet for both breakfast and lunch, has become one of their signature offerings.
It’s that time again… Thousands of runners flock to their computers and furiously attempt to sign up for that Run Disney race of their dreams. It’s a beautiful time, filled with excitement, anticipation, and hope… Followed soon after by questions of “what did I get myself into?” Been there, done that. As somebody who’s run two […]
