Disney Grilled Cheese Ingredients
This iconic Disney Grilled Sandwich from Toy Story Land might be hard to get to now, but no worries – you can make it at home with this simple recipe!
Our recipe is the viral TikTok Disney Grilled Cheese version, which has slight variations. But if you want the original recipe, that is also listed below in a link.
Both are amazing, decadent, and a delicious way to indulge in better-than-average Grilled Cheese right from your own kitchen.
While sometimes a main dish, this ultimate grilled cheese is a beautiful side dish compliment to thick creamy winter soups like tomato or broccoli cheese.
Ultimate Grilled Cheese Ingredients
Mayo Garlic Spread
- 1/4 cup real mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
Cream Cheese Spread

Where can you find Grilled Cheese in the Disney Parks?
The original classic recipe of this famous grilled cheese is located in Toy Story Land inside Woody’s Lunch Box restaurant, which is located in Hollywood Studios.
What is different about this TikTok Grilled Cheese vs. the Disney Blog Grilled Cheese?
In the Disney blog recipe, there are no spices like Cayenne or Red Pepper. There is also no Honey drizzle, and Disney uses heavy cream to thin out the cream cheese.
I have made both, and both are delicious and very close in flavor.
How to make Disney Grilled Cheese
Step 1 – PREPPING THE MAYO AND CREAM CHEESE
- Mix mayonnaise, garlic powder, and sea salt – set the bowl aside.
- Mix softened cream cheese, sea salt, and freshly shredded Parmesan cheese in a separate bowl.
- OPTIONAL: If you want a bit of spice, sprinkle with a dash of cayenne pepper in this step.
- Mix all cream cheese ingredients well. Set bowl aside.
Step 2 – LAYERING THE SANDWICH
- Spread garlic mayonnaise onto a slice of bread.
- Place a bread slice, mayonnaise side down, in a large skillet.
- Top with two slices of fresh cheddar cheese, cream cheese spread, optionally drizzle with honey (about a tsp – you can be generous if you like honey or less if you like less sweetness), and top with two slices of provolone cheese.
- Add mayonnaise on another slice of bread and place it on top of the sandwich in the pan, mayonnaise side out.
Step 3: GRILLING THE SANDWICH
- Heat the grilled cheese sandwich over medium heat, browning each side and melting the cheese.
- Once each side is golden brown and the cheese is melty and gooey, remove from the pan.
- Repeat the process for 2nd sandwich.
- Serve immediately while hot.
- This recipe makes two large sandwiches perfect for dipping into soups like Cabbage Soup, Wendy’s copycat Chili, or Butternut Squash Soup.
