Our version of Main Street Bakery Cinnamon Rolls

When your son turns 9 during Coronavirus, you get creative with what will bring him joy.  I asked our son what we could do at home to make his 9th birthday special he quickly responded with make Disney Cinnamon Rolls.  Is he our son or what?

Over the last few weeks, a lot of butter has been used and we have tried the recipe several times, but we have enjoyed a lot of time together as a family in the kitchen.  I think this is a memory our kids will certainly have of this crazy time.

We will celebrate this amazing boy on Sunday, May 10 by making this special recipe. Here it is if you are looking for a special treat for your family.  It would also make a great treat for a mother, but I must add your kitchen will be a bit of a mess after this recipe.  Keep that in mind if you are trying to show your love to those special Mommas out there.


  • 1st set out butter and cream cheese to room temperature (set out for a few hours)
  • 2nd in a small bowl mix ½ c water, 2 Tbsp sugar, 2 packets active yeast with a fork
  • 3rd in a large bowl mix 1 packet (3.4 oz) of vanilla pudding and 2 c of milk with a whisk. Melt 1 stick of butter and mix with pudding mixture.  Then add 2 eggs to the mixture.  Next, add the yeast mixture.  After mixing the yeast in pour this into a mixer.
  • 4th fold in 8 c of flour to the mixer.
  • Let the dough rise. Cover with saran wrap. (may take over an hour)

While you are waiting for the dough to rise, you should make the filling.


  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • Stir the above with a fork

Once your dough rises, flour the surface where you are going to roll it out.  Roll the dough out into a rectangle about 34”x21”.  The dough needs to be a nice even layer (not too thick or too thin).  Next, melt 1 stick of butter and paint all over the dough.  Now get the cinnamon & brown sugar mixture needs to be sprinkled all over the dough.


Start at one end of the dough and slowly roll into one long jellyroll.  Take a sharp serrated knife and cut into 1”-1 ½” pieces.  Set the rolls into a buttered pan that you will bake the rolls in.  Space the rolls several inches apart because they will expand.  Bake at 350˚ for 20 minutes.

You Don’t Want to Miss This: Magic Kingdom

DSCN5461   I am often asked “What should I make sure I don’t miss on my first trip to Magic Kingdom?” With so many rides, attractions, shows, and architectural eye-candy, it is easy to end up wandering aimlessly. There are many other things you have GOT to see!  Here is my short list of “Don’t Miss” for Magic Kingdom first-timers.

5. Nooks and Crannies
Magic Kingdom is full of quiet corners and unique off-beat spaces. One of my favorites is on the right hand side of Main Street U.S.A. As you walk toward Cinderella Castle, you’ll see an alleyway on the right. If you walk to the end, there are chairs and flower boxes amid other carefully appointed exterior decorations. Take a minute to sit on a bench or in a chair, and just listen! You’ll hear dance and singing lessons taking place upstairs!
Another great spot is the long walk to Tomorrowland from New Fantasyland. This long walkway meanders by the Tomorrowland Speedway and the train. Another don’t miss is the wishing well to the right of Cinderella Castle. It is often overlooked as passersby hurry to get to Tomorrowland.
4. Cinderella’s Fountain
Take a moment to stroll by this fountain in Fantasyland. From a child’s height 101perspective, the crown which is painted on the wall above and behind this beautiful statue appears to be sitting on Cinderella’s head! It’s a great picture if taken at the right angle.
3. Main Street Trolley Show and Dapper Dans
Each day, Main Street U.S.A. becomes the stage for great entertainment. Beginning at about 9 AM daily, you can be amazed at the acapella sound of the Dapper Dans! At about 9:15 AM daily, the “citizens” (or Main Street Performers as I call them) begin to invigorate the street with beautiful singing and dancing as they trolley up and down main street. My family knows all the songs and sings along. We never miss it.
2. Meet The Big Guy
What trip to Magic Kingdom would be complete without a visit with Mickey Mouse? Mickey can be found at the Town Square Theater each day. He will be in his rehearsal room waiting for you! As you wait in line, there are so many things to look at. DSCN3130Including different magic show objects. Here, there will be a PhotoPass photographer. If you purchased Memory Maker, her or she will take pictures and use your magic band to add them to your account. You are welcome to take pictures with your own camera as well. Fast Pass + is available for meeting Mickey. Scheduling your meet with the Big Guy can save you a lot of time!
1. Magic Kingdom Welcome Show
As my family and I approach the day of our next visit to Magic Kingdom, we always get 20140419_075202really excited at the idea of watching the opening show. Each morning, a few moments before park opening,  the citizens of Main Street, along with many fun friends entertain guests with a really exciting show. They sing, they dance, they guide everyone in counting down to open the park! This one is too good – I don’t want to share too much and spoil the excitement!  I WILL say, this is my number one “Don’t Miss” in Magic Kingdom!
