T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Enjoying Gingerbread Mickeys At Home!

I am always looking for ways to enjoy Disney at home – whether it be framed trip photos hanging on the walls, Christmas ornaments commemorating the fun times, or making treats that remind me of Disney – I will do what I can to keep that Disney Magic alive until I can go on my next Disney World trip!

GbreadCookieMix

One of the (many!) souvenirs I picked up last month while at Disney World was this Gingerbread cookie mix. To be honest, I could care less about the mix – it was the cookie cutter I was really after here!

GbreadCookieEating

Mickey Gingerbread men are found around the Parks during the holidays, in both Gingerbread and Sugar cookie form – and when I saw this mix with the accompanying cutter, I knew I had to take it home with me

Baking is one of my favorite things to do (I love it so much I even blog about it) – and so I never miss a chance to get in the kitchen and whip up a tasty treat for my friends and family (ok, and myself too!)

GbreadCuttingout

The mix was easy to make and roll out – and then I got to cut out the cute Mickey hat wearing men!

Gbreadmen Oven

They looked so cute on the cookie sheets, and they smelled the house with a DELICIOUS Christmas-y scent!

GbreadMen with Coffee

The best part was getting to EAT them – ears first of course! They were not too “ginger-y”, I would say more of a cross between gingerbread and a sugar cookie

I love souvenirs like this – delicious and a great way to relive all the great Disney memories! What about you – what’s your favorite vacation souvenir?

TGIF!

SHARING is CARING! (…Sharing WDW FOOD that is)

The cost of a Walt Disney World vacation is something I have discussed here before, as it tends to be on the expensive side. There are a lot of ways you can save money on your WDW vacation, and one of them is by doing something that’s taught in preschools all over the world – SHARING! By sharing your Disney meals/snacks with your party, you can save a lot of money!

Disney food is amazing, it’s delicious, always freshly prepared, and the portions also tend to be on the large side – which can be a huge plus for those of you looking to save some $$$ on quick service meals and snacks. Here are some suggestions on items you can share/split:

 BountyPlate Breakfast: Most WDW Resort counter service locations offer a “breakfast platter” or a “bounty platter”, which comes with eggs, meat (bacon/sausage, or in some cases ham), breakfast potatoes, and a biscuit/roll/pancakes/waffles. It’s a lot of food – and at under $9, makes breakfast for 2 practically a steal!

TurkeySandLunch/Dinner: I find that the best thing to share at lunch time has to be the deli sandwiches – most places have some form of pre made turkey/ham/roast beef sandwich, and it usually comes with a side of pasta salad or fries (I personally like to opt for the fries because you usually get more, which is a benefit when you’re looking to split up a meal!). Burgers are also a good choice, as most places have them and they tend to be on the large side as well. These items usually run in the $9-$12 range

Snacks: Disney has TONS of amazing snack options, and those that are great for sharing include cookies, popcorn, rice krispie treats, and cupcakes (like this amazing butterfinger cupcake that can be found at Starring Roles in Disney’s Hollywood Studios)

Sharing meals can work for two adults, two kids, an adult and a kid – the way you split meals up is totally up to you, but either way, you will definitely get to enjoy some delicious WDW food, and that’s always a plus in my book!

So Many Disney Recipes, So Little Time

minnieBaking

I know I have talked about Disney cookbooks, and there are plenty of them out there that can help you bring that Disney Magic into your home in between trips to Walt Disney World

While browsing online, I stumbled across an amazing website – Magical Recipes which is FULL of Disney recipes from the Parks, Resorts, and Cruise Line! It has a great search function, and I knew I was in the mood to bake some cookies, so it didn’t take me long to find this recipe for Double Chocolate Cookies which are served over at the Main Street Bakery in the Magic Kingdom (one of my personal favorite spots to grab a snack!)

Check out the delicious results over on my Baking Blog, and check out Magical Recipes so you can recreate your Disney faves at home!
