As a kid, and even as an adult, many people dream of taking a trip to Disneyland. Of course, many people look forward to this adventure because they'll get to go on rides and meet some of their favorite characters, but they are also excited because they'll get to enjoy some of the delicious Disneyland food.
All theme parks have their specialty treats and meals that visitors love. In fact, there are some people who visit Disneyland once a year, and every time they stop in they head to a particular area to enjoy their favorite dish. Whether it is a dessert, entree or appetizer, Disneyland has a lot to offer its guests. However, not everyone is able to afford to take a trip there every year, even if it is just to enjoy the food. For those who can't seem to get enough of the sweet and savory treats at Disneyland, you can actually recreate some of your faves right in your very own home.
