#DisneySide @Home Celebration Magic Kingdom Food Ideas

I love food and I love parties.  When I start planning a party, the food is the first thing I think about.  When I finally decided on our "Magic Kingdom" theme for our #DisneySide @Home Celebration, I immediately started emailing my mom.  I had decided to come up with at least one food item to go with each attraction at the Magic Kingdom.  I knew I wasn't going to actually serve it all, because that would be A LOT of food, but I wanted to have all the ideas down.

Here are the food ideas I had.  Some, as you will see, were more difficult than others!  Some we had to stretch, but in the end we came up with an idea for each attraction!  The items in bold are the ones we had at our party.

Main Street USA- 

  • We have to serve popcorn on Main Street!
  • And we had to have something from the Confectionery!  So we did Mickey Marshmallow Pops.
  • Walt Disney World Railroad- cupcakes with a train theme


  • Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse- Swiss Cake Rolls cut into bite sizes with small Swiss Flags on toothpicks stuck in each roll 
  • Jungle Cruise- Animal Crackers
  • Enchanted Tiki Room- fruit served on a Tiki themed bowl or plate
  • Magic Carpets of Aladdin- Fruit Rollups cut into “carpets” 
  • Pirates of the Caribbean- Cannonballs (cheese balls, whoppers candy, or any other small, round food item) 


  • Country Bear Jamboree- Teddy Grahams or Gummy Bears 
  • Tom Sawyer Island- Rice Krispy treats cut into squares with a popsicle stick stuck in the end to resemble a paintbrush.  Then dip part of the Rice Krispy end in melted white chocolate- like a white wash paintbrush.
  • Splash Mountain- White Chocolate Fountain tinted blue with items to dip 
  • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad- Tumbleweed (haystack cookies) 
Liberty Square
  • Hall of Presidents- Nilla wafer cookies made to look like Presidents
  • Liberty Belle Riverboat- veggies & dip served in a “Riverboat” bowl (Yes, you'd have to find or create a Riverboat bowl!)
  • Haunted Mansion-  Ghosts made out of Tootsie Pops


  • Cinderella Castle- Cinderella’s Enchanted Pumpkins (Halloween “Candy Corn” pumpkins) or gummy princesses 
  • Prince Charming Regal Carrousel- cupcakes with horses on top
  • Mickey’s Philharmagic- using a note shaped cookie cutter, cut sandwiches 
  • Peter Pan’s Flight- Peter Pan Peanut Butter Balls 
  • It’s a small world- earth shaped chocolates or suckers 
  • Dumbo the Flying Elephant- peanuts or candy circus peanuts 
  • Barnstormer- cupcakes with the propeller on top
  • Mad Tea Party- tea to drink 
  • Adventures of Winnie the Pooh- cupcakes with honey bee candy or Bit o Honey candy 
  • Under the Sea Journey of the Little Mermaid- sea shell candy mold or goldfish crackers
  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train- Gold- Rolo's or Hershey’s Nuggets candy
  • Enchanted Tales with Belle- Grey Stuff 


  • Stitch’s Great Escape- cupcakes with a Stitch topper 
  • Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin- blue or green jello jigglers using Buzz spaceship cookie cutter 
  • Monster’s Inc Laugh Floor- Mike Wazowski cupcakes (green icing, with large eyeball) or Monster's Inc. gummies 
  • Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover- make a peoplemover “train” and fill with veggies, snacks or candy 
  • Astro Orbiter- rocket popsicles 
  • Space Mountain- Pop Rocks as Asteroids 
  • Tomorrowland Speedway- small chocolate covered doughnuts as race tires 
  • Carousel of Progress- cake with wheel from attraction sign
Once I had all my food ideas, I narrowed it down to the ones I wanted to use for my party.  Then I made the food tents.  This has become my favorite part of party planning!

Here is the rest of our food items with tents! :)
