Disney during the holidays, is there any other place more magical? From the sights of the festive trees and decorations, to the sounds of the carolers singing our favorite holiday songs, it can warm the chilliest of nights. So what is really the best part of the holidays…the food! The smells and tastes of the holidays are something we look forward to all year long.

The holidays are known for pies, turkey, green bean casserole, stuffing and the list goes on and on. We all have our favorite holiday traditions, but what if this year we create a new one? What if you combine one of your favorite places, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, with some new holiday food traditions?

 

gnocchi

So you are not a fan of turkey, or you are a vegetarian looking for a tasty meatless alternative? Here is a great recipe from Artist Point at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge: Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Brown Butter. Don’t forget the mushrooms and Brussels sprouts to really make this dish over-the-top.

 

cookies

Need something for that sweet tooth? A made-from-scratch pumpkin milkshake from Artist Point at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge may do the trick! You can also tap into your creative side and try making Jack Skellington’s Sandy Claws cookies. The holidays are all about creating memories and hopefully these recipes will be the start of new family traditions in your house.

 

Remember, if you enjoy cooking, baking and would love to make a career out of your passion, you may apply in January for the Disney Culinary Program.
