Requesting Recipes From Disney World

If you’re looking for a certain recipe you’ve seen on Disney Food Blog, check out our Disney Recipes page or simply search the site (via the search box on the right) for the item you’d like to see.

If you can’t find the recipe here, there are dozens of Disney websites that painstakingly publish Disney recipes from the parks and resorts. Simply google the name of the dish you’re looking for, along with the word “recipe,” and you’d be surprised with what you come up with!

If you’ve searched the web to no avail, consider leafing through some Disney cookbooks. There are several in bookstores and in Disney World shops.

If that’s a no go, consider contacting Disney guest services ((407) 939-6244); explain the situation to the person you’re speaking with, and see if they’re able to help you. Or, try emailing your request to guest.mail@wdw.disneyonline.com (Thanks to Barbara V. for this suggestion!).

When you’re at the bottom of the barrel, find someone who’s going to Disney World and ask them to request the desired recipe from the restaurant. Disney chefs are noteworthy for being willing to share their recipes; often, they’ll ask for your email and send it your way right away.
