We had to update this post from 2013 because the photos were so bad. This time around we found Velvetta slices and large elbow macaroni at our grocery store. No matter how long ago we last cruised, Mickey’s Mac and Cheese is still my kids favorite.
My kids don’t crave macaroni and cheese all that much, but whatever they put in the Mac and Cheese on the Disney Cruise was addictive and not only for the children in the group. One night my mom did not like her entree.
She ordered a bowl of mac and cheese. Be sure to also check out the amazing upgrades on the Disney Cruise Line.
Don’t worry the folks at Disney did not touch this Disney Mac and Cheese Recipe. My son gobbled it up again.
How to Make Mickeys Mac and Cheese
We are talking about stop your heart cheesy. But OH SO good. If you are on a diet, don’t bother going on a cruise, it is a waste of money. Food is half the fun.
A LOT OF CHEESE IN DISNEY MAC AND CHEESE
Both my sister and I separately went on a mission to try to replicate the Mickey Mac and Cheese our children devoured on the Disney cruise.
My sister made the Velveeta box recipe and I did a little more Internet searching and found one that sounded like the description from our waiters.
After making it, I have declared this a once a year treat. I just hate using processed cheese in quantities like this. The kids thought it was pretty close even though the noodles were different.
If you prefer the quick method to make Mac and cheese, check out our Instant Pot Mac and Cheese Recipe. I bet you can convert this to an Instant pot recipe.
So if you want to treat your kids and adults to a decadent mac and cheese for Valentine’s Day, they will surely love you more after you put this on the table! On the Disney Cruise, they use the longer Elbow Macoroni which is not found in all grocery stores.
