Delicious Disney: Walt Disney World: Recipes & Stories from The Most Magical Place on Earth (Hardcover)
After the success of Disneyland, Walt Disney wanted to build something more elaborate and with more room. Ultimately, it was Walt's brother and business partner, Roy O. Disney, who brought forth his sibling's dream—and made it a reality—when the Magic Kingdom opened in 1971. More than fifty years later, we still celebrate Walt's dream, Roy's vision and commitment, plus the dedication of those who serve up a world of magic. And all of it is deliciously Disney.
Filled with a heartfelt narrative and behind-the-scenes anecdotes, mouth-watering food photos, gorgeous Walt Disney Imagineering concept artwork, nostalgic restaurant menus and ephemera, and a little Disney magic, this cookbook-meets-culinary-history coffee table book enchants with more than sixty recipes. Including an assortment of appetizers, main courses, sides, desserts, and even joyful libations, these dishes come from fine-dining and quick-service establishments across the resort. Each has been tested by home chefs to help you bring your cherished vacation memories to life . . . and inspire new ones for years to come.

MARCY CARRIKER SMOTHERS is the author of the fan favorite Eat Like Walt: The Wonderful World of Disney Food, a New York Times New & Noteworthy selection in 2018. Her love of all things Disney, especially Disneyland, inspired her to delve into Walt Disney's world of food. A noted radio personality, she hosted several programs, including The Food Guy and Marcy Show with the Food Network's Guy Fieri. Marcy's next book for Disney—and her passion project—is Walt's Disneyland: A Walk in the Park with Walt Disney.
“As a fan of Disney history, the chapters on “Gone but Not Forgotten” and “Eating and Imagination” were the most interesting as they offered a closer look at the role food plays in theming, and conversely, how theming plays a role in the presentation and marketing of food. While more recent additions to WDW like the Riviera Resort lack the same nostalgia or strong themes as old-school Disney, they do give the authors an opportunity to showcase the many culinary options now available to people with various dietary restrictions.”—AllEars
