Dumbo – Roasted Peanuts

I seem to always block out how sad Dumbo really is. I could say it was cutting up onions while watching Mrs. Jumbo cradled little Dumbo in her trunk, but there weren’t any onions featured in this heartbreaking movie. Only peanuts and the reoccurring early Disney theme of getting kids drunk.


Fantasia – Stegosaurus meat and Wine (Grape Juice)

While there aren’t any sugary treats in this movie, it sure is a visual treat. From abstract colors, to unwieldy broomsticks, to evil demons, it is beautiful and has some amazing animation. If you have anything to do with visual arts in your life, you should watch this movie.


Pinocchio – Lemon Roasted Fish, Yellow Cake, Roasted Chicken, Homemade Bread, and Strawberry Pie

Quick links: Figaro’s Fish | Princess Cleo’s Cake | Geppetto’s Chicken | Stromboli’s French Bread | Pleasure Island Pie | Verdict [twitter-follow screen_name=’DisneyMeals’] One of the saddest parts of Pinocchio is that Geppetto made a huge mouthwatering feast that no one got to eat! The Fish Figaro Failed to Eat So as it goes, Pinocchio gets turned into a living puppet that’s…

Snow White – Fish Stew and Gooseberry Pie

Quick links: Fish Stew Recipe | Gooseberry Pie Recipe | Verdict [twitter-follow screen_name=’DisneyMeals’] There is a full recipe given in this movie, but since I’m not in the market for eating a poisoned apple, I decided to opt for the other foods featured in the movie. MMM….SOUP! The first food shown in the movie was right after the dwarves…

The Wonderful World of Dining

I love all things Disney. I grew up on the animated films and I can sing every word of every song from every movie. My ideal vacation is not Greenland or Queensland, but Disneyland. Disney makes me feel happy, youthful, warm and….hungry. There are always wonderful foods featured in Disney movies, whether it be the spaghetti from Lady and the Tramp, the grey stuff from Beauty and the Beast or the ratatouille from Ratatouille. I have always wondered they all tasted like. So I came up with the idea to do just that.

I am not a professional chef by any means, but I love cooking and creating my own recipes. So I have set out on this endeavor, supported by my beautiful wife, to once a week, watch a Disney animated film and cook every food featured in it. We’re going to start with Snow White and watch in chronological order until we are done. Our master list comes from Wikipedia, with some slight edits. We will only do the movies made by Walt Disney Animation studios and Pixar Animation studios (with the possible exceptions of a Halloween and Christmas special and also the exception of the Goofy Movie, which was made by DisneyToon studios, but I love that movie).  See below for the list. We are both very excited about this project and wanted to share it with everyone. So follow us as we explore and create the lovely Disney meals.

P.S. – Feel free to comment with suggestions/critiques/praises for anything posted. We are always looking for ways to improve our recipes.
