Chef Goofy offers the “supervision” for this fun event, geared toward the 3-11 set. Kids follow a recipe and then swirl everything together. (Warning: Hands will get a lil messy!) And with a little Disney Magic — poof! Participants leave with a wrapped, ready-to-eat baked treat.

Jr. Chef events are free, and take place several times daily at Paradise Park, near the Golden Zephyr. Daily showtimes will be posted at the event location.

Participation is on a first-come basis. Children under 7 must be accompanied by a guest age 14 or older.
