Review: The Unofficial Disney Parks Cookbook
The book starts off with quite a lot of information about the food at the US Disney Parks and a backgrounder on how the author came to create the collection of recipes. There is also an extensive list of supplies included for those who are looking to whip up some of these copy-cat recipes. Although there aren’t as many images in the book that show off the various dishes that are included in the book, they are colourful and stunning.

The book is divided into the various parks and there are quite a few different recipes to create from each area. Depending on how exact you are hoping your dish to be, there are quite a few items that will need to be purchased in advance. Items such as Mickey-shaped cookie cutters and a Mickey waffle iron might be needed for similar results. The instructions are fairly straightforward and many of the recipes are so basic that even the most inexperienced cooks can achieve success.
❀ Pleasing Results
I am always up for trying a cookie recipe and created the Mickey Sugar Cookies. The recipe is a typical sugar cookie with the exception of the shape and the ideas for how to decorate it to achieve the same look as those you will find in the Magic Kingdom. I did purchase a Mickey cookie cutter and was quite pleased with the results.
