I’m so happy to have my friend Clare from Just Bright Ideas here today. She’s also a huge Disney fan and she has some fun recipes for your next Disney movie night. These would be great if you have been working your way through all of the Disney animated movies.
What’s your favorite Disney movie? It’s so hard to narrow it down to just one but my all time favorite is Beauty and the Beast (closely followed by Frozen!)
I was excited when Cindy asked me to stop by and share something with you today, and since I’m a fellow Disney fan I thought perhaps we could kick back and watch our favorite Disney movies, while eating some delicious Disney inspired food of course!

How to Plan a Disney Movie Night
Planning a Disney movie night for your family is really easy. The hard part is agreeing on what to watch. There are over 100 choices!
Thanks go Amazon, the local library, and now Disney+, your family can watch most of the animated movies that have ever produced by Disney.
So…Pick a night. Pick a movie that everyone agrees on. Then try to figure out what to eat. Are you going to make a snack? A fun drink? Or an entire entree? It’s up to you!
Below you will find 12 Disney movies and 12 recipes to go with them. Plus a few items to make your Disney movie night even more special!
Disney Movie Night Recipes
There are so many delicious ideas for your Disney movie night! These recipes are all inspired by classic Disney movies. They include appetizers, entrees, and desserts.
If I asked you to name a famous scene from a Disney movie featuring food I bet you’d think of Lady and the Tramp. Because you don’t get any more memorable than that plate of spaghetti and meatballs right?
Oh here’s a movie that’s a little closer to home, for me anyway, just keep the kids out of the room when the bears fight because I find that scene a little too scary! And the perfect food to munch on while watching Brave? How about some Hot Cross Buns? Just because they taste a whole lot better than haggis!
“But fish in the bowl is lucky, They in for a worser fate, One day when the boss get hungry, Guess who’s gon’ be on the plate.” Another Disney classic don’t you think? And in honour of Sebastian why not try some Crab Cake Stuffed Shrimp while kicking back and enjoying the Little Mermaid.
“Gotta keep. One jump ahead of the breadline. One swing ahead of the sword. I steal only what I can’t afford ( That’s Everything! )” I love Aladdin, it’s one of my all time favorites. And what better food to enjoy while watching this fabulous movie than a nice fresh-from-the-oven French Baguette!
The taste of her father’s infamous Gumbo inspires Tiana’s dream to own her own restaurant in New Orleans. This recipe for Louisiana Style Gumbo should get everyone in the mood to enjoy The Princess and the Frog.
Winnie the Pooh always has a rumbly in his tumbly, and the only thing that will stop that rumble is a good old jar of honey. Of course honey is a little sweet to eat all by itself, so why not make some of these Slow Cooker Honey Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches to munch on while you watch the movie!
If you’re a fan of UP you might remember that Carl gives Russell a grape soda badge. It was one that his wife had given him when they first met. And to celebrate that moment why not whip up some of these delicious Grape Soda Cupcakes!
And you’d probably be shocked if I didn’t throw Frozen into the mix so let’s make sure we include it. These Frozen Pretzel Wands will double up as microphones when you all want to jump up and sing along to Let it Go!
Enjoy your movies!
