Yummy WDW Resort Recipes

I started weight watchers 2 weeks ago.  I'm doing fine and may even reach my goal by my WDW trip (if I can stay on track!!!).  But, all this counting and pointing has me pretty hungry at times!  I've found 2 fabulous Disney recipes I'm dying to try.  I may just have to make them, try them, count the points and move on!!

Strawberry Shortcake
Hoop-de-doo Musical Review

Yield: Approx. ½ Sheet Pan (17" x 12")
Yellow Pound Cake Step 1 
1 ¼ pound Cake Flour
1 ¼ pound Granulated Sugar
¼ ounce Baking Powder
Pinch Nutmeg
½ ounce Salt
½ pound Shortening
¼ pound Butter
8 ounces Milk
Step 2 
6 Eggs
4 ounces Milk
½ ounce Vanilla
(Almond Extract can be substituted for vanilla)

1) Sift and blend all dry ingredients from Step 1 together. Add shortening, butter, milk, and mix 5-7 minutes at low speed.
2) Combine all ingredients from Step 2 together and blend lightly.
3) Add liquid mix from Step 2 to Step 1 in three parts, scraping down bowl between. Bake at 350 degrees until tester inserted into cake comes out clean.

Topping: Add whipped cream and Smucker's Frozen Strawberries (thawed) to taste.

Tonga Toast

Kona Cafe


2 or 4 slices sourdough bread, cut 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick
1 banana
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
oil or shortening for frying
whipped butter and/or syrup

Cut a 1-inch pocket in one side of each bread slice. Cut banana in half crosswise, then split each piece lengthwise. Remove peel and stuff two pieces of fruit in each pocket of bread; set aside. Mix sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Mix together well the egg, milk and vanilla.
Heat about 4 inches of oil in a pan to 350º F. Dip stuffed bread into egg/milk mixture and let it soak a few seconds to let penetrate bread. Fry bread on both sides in hot oil until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels or wire rack. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and serve.


  1. I have made the shorcake - delicious! I have always wanted to try the Tonga Toast, but haven;t yet.

    By the way, I am starting Weight Watchers Wednesday. I had so much success with it when I was on it before kids. It taught me how to eat the right way and in moderation. I kept all my weight off (until I had three kids in three years!). Good luck! My goal is to lose my weight before our Disney trip too!

  2. I started my Disney diet too but now I really want to make some Tonga toast. :)

  3. Mmm. . both of these recipes look great. I have been wanting to try Tonga Toast so badly - I may have to try to make it at home since our trip isn't for another year!

  4. Congrats with Weight Watchers! You know I'm a life long fan.. but I have to warn you - stick to the plan long enough and Tonga Toast sort of loses it's appeal.. even when I'm on vacation and not totally thinking about it, the toast is too rich for my tastes! but I hear ya - sometimes you just need to bake something that tastes good and not just healthy!
