Anyone can tell you that the holiday season is one of the best times of the year for delicious sweets and eats!
Well, we don’t want you going hungry at this festive time! So, we thought we’d throw together a list of some MUST-DO recipes for Christmastime that come straight from Disney World. That’s right, Disney dining in your own home! Read on to find out all the Disney World you’ll NEED to survive the holidays!
We’ve got a handful of yummy recipes lined up for you. Some are meals, some are sweets so there’s something for every kitchen. Pick out your fave and give it a try at home, or don’t pick out your fave and try them all! Let’s start the list off with a couple of tried-and-true Disney classics.
We’re gonna say something scary: Christmas morning breakfast. EEK! There’s a ton of pressure on this meal with kiddos wanting the morning to be every bit of magical. With late nights around the holidays and early risings, Christmas breakfast is no easy task. Enter MICKEY WAFFLES!
These guys are deceptively easy (all you need is the right mix!) and Mickey is sure to please everyone at the breakfast table.
If you’re looking to add a little more pizzazz to breakfast (or a little more icing!) swing for our favorite Disney World recipe. Oh yeah, that’s right. It’s the iconic Cinnamon Rolls from Main Street Bakery! We’ve used this recipe a few times and they are DELICIOUS every time!
Next up, we’ve got a recipe that’s a perfect winter dish! It’s Colcannon Soup from Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant! This soup is only occasionally on the menu and is made with potatoes, cabbage, aaaaand BACON!
Colcannon Soup is a super filling and warm dish that’s perfect for those cool winter days!
Uncle Walt’s Chili
Next up we’ve got another hearty, belly-warming dish. It’s Walt Disney’s own chili recipe! There are tons of places you can find chili in Disney World (get it dumped on a hot dog at Casey’s Corner) with a bunch of varying recipes, but the number one way to make Disney chili is with Walt’s own recipe.
It’s said that Walt used to SWEAR by this chili recipe and…he was a pretty smart guy.
Gingerbread Mickey Beignets
Now, let’s move on to some holiday sweets! You might have heard of the Gingerbread Beignets…or you might not have considering they’re a secret menu item at Scat Cat’s Club in Port Orleans Resort! Well, whether or not you’ve heard of them, you’ve GOT TO HAVE THEM.
They’re the quintessential Disney holiday treat and you can make them in the comfort of your own home!
Pecan Maple Bark
Now, beignets can be messy and what if you want a holiday treat on the go? Maybe to nosh while you’re out peeking at Christmas lights? Boy, do we have the answer for you! We saw this Pecan Maple Bark at Epcot during the holidays in years passed and we just had to jot down the recipe.
It’s sweet, it’s salty, it’s portable… What else could you want!?

The Pumpkin Mousse Trifle has been seen at Epcot International Food and Wine Festival and has some awesome holiday flavors.
This dessert is a cool and easy alternative to pumpkin pie that will have you singing pumpkiny praises.
