7 Disney Food Blogs You Should Be Reading
My blog is (obviously) not the only Disney food blog out there. While we may be a tiny portion of the food blogging world, we are awesome! Today I wanted to share a list of what I believe are the a few of the best Disney food blogs out there. You should check them out and follow them as soon as you can! There are delicious recipes waiting to be discovered on their blogs, as well as other information – dining reviews and general Disney park posts. These are in no particular order, and I may have left off a blog that you think should be here. It could be because I don’t know about it, or it might be because I thought that the others nudged it out. Don’t be upset – everyone’s opinion is right! Feel free to let me know if you think I’ve forgotten one in the comments!
1. The Disney Food Blog
This one is really obvious, so I’m getting it out of the way first. The Disney Food Blog is amazing, full of all the dining information, reviews, and news you could want. Its also the most visible of the pages, so I’m sure most of you already know about it! The sheer amount of information on their page is daunting, but if you are looking for a specific restaurant, this is the place where you are sure to find it.
2. Yo Ho Yo Ho A Blogger’s Life For Me
This is another Disney focused site that has more to offer than just food and recipe information, run by a former Disney intern. There are trip blogs, general Disney information, news, and tips. When it comes to the food blog side of things, she has great reviews of restaurants, as well as some recipes and cooking videos! If you’re looking for a specific dining review or recipe, this is a great place to search.
3. The Healthy Mouse
While this site is not all Disney, all the time, she has some awesome recipes and resources. It even has a link to a Facebook group – The Healthy Mouseketeers – for eating healthy at Disney! If you’re very concerned about what you’re eating at Disney, this is a great site to browse. There’s a whole section of blog posts to help you find the healthiest choices when dining in the ‘World. They aren’t all just about salads or general health. Some are specific to different diet choices, like eating paleo, and other focus solely on snacks.
Even if you aren’t a healthy eater all the time, like me, it is still good to look at and read up on what things you can get if you decide you do want to chow down on something a little less sugary or fried. Her recipe section is also really cute and varied, with lots of Disney inspired dishes. Definitely worth checking out!
4. Alexis’ Gluten Free Adventures
Alexis’ website is another geared to a specific audience, in this case those who need gluten-free options, and is not totally dedicated to Disney. She covers Disney, Orlando, Traveling in general, there’s a recipe section, reviews, and more. Her Disney information is pretty extensive, and definitely worth looking through, even if you aren’t following a gluten-free diet. Her Disney posts are broken up in several sections. There’s a section of top 10 lists, “The Best Things I Ever Ate” (separated by courses), “Best Resorts for Special Diets,” and also goes through each park and offers specific information about eating gluten free at each one, as well as the resorts. While it isn’t a comprehensive list of every restaurant on property, it is extensive.
There are more articles, ranging from reviews of specific allergy free menu reviews, Disney cruise line information, links to gluten free Disney Pinterest boards, and has a few gluten free Disney recipes. I know several people who follow a gluten free lifestyle, and eating out can be a struggle. This site is really well done, with lots of great information, and very thorough in helping you find what you need at Walt Disney World. I would highly recommend this if you have a person in your family who has a gluten free requirement.
5. The Disney Chef
This is probably one of the other biggest and best known Disney food blogs. She has TONS of recipes from all over Disney World (and Disneyland) – if you can’t find it anywhere else, you can probably find it here! Her signature recipes are also pretty awesome! Her website also includes Disney tips for touring the parks as well as tips for dining in the parks (which is always helpful). It also includes a section about Run Disney. Her blog covers her recipes and food (obviously) but she also posts about other Disney related things which have nothing to do with eating in the World.
Her site is fun to read, and guaranteed to make you hungry. If you’re looking for a specific recipe you just can’t seem to find anywhere else, she’s probably got it. There is something for everyone, so definitely stop by and bookmark this one!
6. Dining at Disney
This site is less focused on recipes, and more focused on dining reviews, news, and suggestions. But don’t let that stop you! Its really a one-stop site for whatever you want to know about dining at Disney, whether you have the meal plan or not. Because they are run by a team of people, rather than a single person, there is a lot more variety in what they cover and in their reviews. They also have guest bloggers, which gives you even more diversity of opinion.
Their information is very detailed and useful if you’re trying to decide between restaurants on your next vacation. They also have links to recent food related news in Disney, some recipes, and they’ve broken down restaurants by park. If you are planning a trip, I would say you should add this site to your list of places to check for information and reviews. This should be a great resource if you’re trying to plan and decide!
7. Allergy Free Mouse
This site has no recipes, but does have extensive reviews and tips for eating in Walt Disney World if you or someone in your family has allergies. They also run a podcast. (I’m a sucker for a good Disney podcast – they’re in the queue for my commute to work.) They cover all kinds of allergies, from gluten-free to peanut-free, but also have sections about general Disney planning. Everything from tips about character meet and greets to tipping. The website is easy to navigate, and if you have any of the allergies they talk about, could be useful when planning your trip.
