Find This New Giant Mozzarella Stick at Downtown Disney

@foodatdisneyland New Giant Mozzarella Stick in Downtown Disney! #foodatdisneyland #disney #downtowndisney #giantmozzarellastick #cheese #cheesepull #fyp #foryou ♬ I Will Always Love You – Whitney Houston

Just spotted by TikTok account @foodatdisneyland is a giant mozzarella stick at Blue Ribbon Corn Dogs in Downtown Disney. From the looks of this clip, it’s of epic proportions, one that rivals the size of the largest corn dogs out there.

What’s interesting to note is that the batter looks to be an outer layer of rice krispies, which would I can only imagine would yield the crispiest of crunches, like ab workouts with impeccable form. As expected with a mozzarella stick this large, it is only giving out epic cheese pulls, ones that would make a Ninja Turtle squirm in their shell.

Speaking of giant Disney food, here’s what happens to their massive gingerbread house displays from the holidays.

This is What Ends Up Happening to the Huge Gingerbread Displays at Disneyworld

@disneyparks You won’t bee-lieve what happens to the #DisneyWorld Gingerbread Houses 🐝✨ #Disney #DisneyParks #Conservation #AnimalLover #Bee #Gingerbread ♬ original sound – Disney Parks

A recent viral TikTok from the Disney Parks account recently pulled back the curtain on what exactly happens to all the massive gingerbread displays after they’re taken down.

According to Disneyworld “Sous Chef Rheanna,” all the candy, sugar, and gingerbread displays are taken to Disney’s tree farm, where local bees have their fill on the sweets. The result is the bees are taken care of and well fed during the winter months, when food sources are harder to find.

This secret nugget of info is definitely a pleasant surprise and it’s great to know that Disney is doing their part with that particular sustainable practice.
