With just days to go until Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary, two books celebrating the Most Magical Place on Earth have arrived at Disney Springs.


Delicious Disney: Walt Disney World features recipes and stories from throughout Walt Disney World’s 50-year history. To mark the book launch, authors Pam Brando and Nancy Carriker Smothers took part in a book signing at The Art of Disney.


The back cover boasts some of the recipes found inside, including Handwich 3.0, Tonga Toast, a Batuuan Ronto Wrap and more.


The inside cover has a gorgeous pattern, featuring the 50th anniversary logo in blue.


Inside, readers can find concept art of Cinderella’s Royal Table in the Magic Kingdom, as well as this quote from Imagineer and Disney Legend John Hench:


It was Walt’s idea that while dining was an experience, we should augment it in any way we could. After all, he was a showman.

Delicious Disney: Walt Disney World retails for $35.00.


Additionally, the shop also offers A Portrait of Walt Disney World: 50 Years of the Most Magical Place on Earth by Kevin Kern, Tim O’Day, and Steven Vagnini.


This book, which retails for $60.00, offers previously unseen concept art and behind-the-scenes photographs.


While we’ve previously seen the front cover, which appropriately features Cinderella Castle, we now can see the back cover pays tributes to the icons of the other three theme parks in EPCOT’s Spaceship Earth, Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s Tree of Life.


If you can’t make it to Disney Springs, don’t worry! The books will be available on shopDisney and at other bookstores beginning tomorrow, September 28th.

I’ll be swinging by Disney Springs tomorrow as I really want this cookbook. It looks like it has been postponed online to April 2022. Any idea how many copies they have available in the store?
