There are a lot of great things about Disneyland—you get to meet and greet characters from your childhood, experience magically-imagineered attractions, and—well—you can walk around wearing a pair of Mickey Mouse ears all day long without being side-eyed by anyone.
But aside from the obvious, perhaps, one of the best things about the Happiest Place On Earth is the food. Yes, the park treats you enjoy when hunger calls or when you just want to take a break from all the walking and queueing. And if you miss the taste of Disneyland’s famous snacks, you’ll be thrilled to know that Disney has finally revealed the recipes of some of their signature park treats so you can recreate them in the comfort of your home!
Ready to make some magic in the kitchen à la Ratatouille’s Remy or The Princess and The Frog’s Tiana? Here are the official recipes of popular Disney eats that will make you channel your inner chef in no time:
Revealed through the My Disney Experience App, the recipe for the Adventureland favorite Dole Whip is so simple, even kitchen newbies can successfully make it!
You just need three ingredients: 1 big scoop of vanilla ice cream, 4 ounces of pineapple juice, and 2 cups of frozen pineapple chunks, and all you’ve got to do is blend all of them together until you achieve a smooth consistency. Complete the Disney experience by giving your Dole Whip its iconic swirl—simply pipe the mixture in a cup or small bowl using a star-tipped piping bag or a plastic zip bag snipped right in one corner. Easy peasy!

Craving cookies? How about whipping up a batch of Beaches & Cream Soda Shop’s seriously addictive Cookie Fries?
