Recipes from Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios has some great eateries. The Hollywood Brown Derby, Sci-Fi Dine-In, Hollywood & Vine, Mama Melrose’s and 50’s Primetime Cafe all offer something for every taste and budget. I’ve reproduced some of the menu recipes that are available in Chef Mickey: Treasures from the Vault & Delicious New Favorites and Cooking with Mickey and the Disney Chefs. I love collecting cookbooks for different reasons, including having family meals where you enjoy your favorite recipes from the parks. It is a great way to relive a great trip or plan for your next one!
