In light of Mickey’s and Minnie’s imminent move out of Disney World’s Fantasyland, I thought we’d take a tour through each mouse’s kitchen to glean whatever cooking and food-related tips and tricks we can before they take up residence elsewhere. Today, we visit Minnie’s kitchen!
First stop is Minnie’s bulletin board. Located just outside her kitchen, we get an idea of the kind of diet advice she’s giving out in her magazine:
And diets are clearly a concern for Minnie (guess she’s working hard on keeping that mouse-ful figure!). Here’s her little invention for keeping the calories at bay — “diet cookies.” You can have as many as you want, if you can get to them through the glass!:
As we enter Minnie’s kitchen, there’s always a lot going on. This is the room where you’ll find the most interactivity in Minnie’s house, and for all her talk about diets, there’s nothing diet in here! Follow the crowd and see what Minnie’s making in her oven and microwave — there are really fun sound effects here, too:
Once you’re full of cake and popcorn, check out Minnie’s “WestingMouse” fridge to see what kinds of cheesy goodness she has today. Also, be sure to check out her favorite cookie recipe, “Cheesy Chip Cookies,” pinned up on the door.
All cheesed out? Check out what Minnie’s “put up” for the winter, along with a few of her prized cookbooks:
Interestingly, Mickey seems to have a candy company to rival Goofy’s…
And it’s fun to see what Minnie’s collecting — teapots!
Even the pots and pans are musical here! You can hear them banging and clanging in rhythm!
Finally, head out into Minnie’s sun room and see her prized buttercups…
Thanks for touring Minnie’s kitchen with us. We’ll be visiting Mickey soon, but I hear his kitchen’s being remodeled…something about a contest…

Even though that area was largely designed by Public Relations people (and not WDI), there are still some fantastic details!
And there really is a Cooking With Mickey book!
Thanks for your comment, George! Have you ever made any recipes from the book?
You have a great imagination. I never would have thought to write about this!

Yikes! Guess I better get to Minnie’s Kitchen before it’s demolished! Thanks for posting. I haven’t been here for a looooong time.
Chris: Thank you so much!
Amanda: Hurry scurry! 🙂
I wonder if that is a REAL recipe, “Cheesy Chip Cookies,” haha.
Annyone else test it out!? Sounds interesting.
Jessica — I haven’t tried it! If you’re going to test it out, let me know; I’d love to post your efforts on the blog! 🙂
