There is just something magical about the holidays and Mickey! We had the opportunity to be at Walt Disney World last year during the week of Thanksgiving. Everything was already to go for the holidays and it was a truly magical experience!
I had really wanted to recreate that magic in our home last year during the holidays, however, I ended up coming home sick from Florida. I caught that virus that year that many of us in Indiana caught. It lasted for 14 weeks.
So this year, we are recreating that Disney magic in our home so you will be seeing a lot of Disney inspired recipes as well as crafts. Creating Disney holiday inspired magic in your home is so easy. I hope you enjoy the recipe below!
