Eat Like Walt, explores the lore of each land, beginning with Main Street, U.S.A., an homage to Walt’s childhood home of Marceline, Missouri, to Tomorrowland, set in futuristic 1986, a year Disney would not live long enough to see.
Although Disneyland opened in 1955, its culinary history dates back to 1923 when Walt Disney first arrived in Hollywood. Walt was a simple eater yet a big dreamer.
By 1934, four years before his first feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, would be released, Mickey Mouse had made him famous enough to have a recipe published in Better Homes & Gardens magazine.
Ask fans what Walt’s favorite food was and most will say, ‘Chili.’ Chili has a cult status at Disneyland. People want to eat what Walt ate, the way he ate, where he ate it.
