This is not your mama’s grilled cheese – indulgent, thick, and gooey; this Disney inspired grilled cheese recipe takes the magic of the parks right into your own kitchen – with a little kick.

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

  • 4 ounces, cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4th tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • optional: dash of cayenne

Cheese Sandwich

  • 4 sharp cheddar cheese slices
  • 4 provolone cheese slices
  • Artisan bread (we used The Rustic Oven Artisan White Bread)
  • optional: drizzle of 1 tsp honey

Tip for using Real Garlic:

If you prefer to use real garlic, add 1 1/2 tsp minced garlic in place of garlic powder.

TikTok Disney Grilled Cheese Recipe

This particular Copycat version of the Disney Grilled Cheese recipe was inspired by TikTok – Our recipe was altered and inspired by @theogkitchenwitch – see her version here.

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

  1. Mix mayonnaise, garlic powder, and sea salt – set the bowl aside.
  2. Mix softened cream cheese, sea salt, and freshly shredded Parmesan cheese in a separate bowl.
  3. OPTIONAL: If you want a bit of spice, sprinkle with a dash of cayenne pepper in this step.
  4. 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.

    Oh, I noticed you had a mistake. It’s *COARSE* Salt, not Course. I know how hard it is with things going on, it’s easy to miss! This looks like a fantastic grilled cheese recipe, yum!!

    1. Thank you! Charlotte has Covid and we have all been on quarantine for almost 2 weeks, so its been a frustrating Christmas. I got that fixed – you are the best! The recipe is great, I hope you try it for lunch tomorrow.

      Hi Trish,

      Question.. I like to make and freeze sandwiches ahead, I do it with cheese Frenchies all the time I always have at least a dozen on hand on the freezer. Could I do the same with the ultimate grilled cheese sandwich?. By the way I use both COARSE and Course, couldn’t cook without them…of cors..

    3. I always hesitate to answer questions that I havent actually done yet – in this case I havent actually frozen this grilled cheese recipe, but in THEORY there shouldnt be much difference as the ingredients freeze fine on their own. I would recommend using a panini if you have one to fry it back up after defrosting and bring it more of a freshness taste!

  2. Roma Pate says:

    Hey Charlotte,

    So sorry to hear about your bout with Covid.. I had it early on back in March, still have some lingering effects, taste is back, smell not so much. Here’s wishing you the best in the New Year and the very best in health.
    Roma

    1. Hi Roma!

      I am so sorry to hear and hope that smell comes back soon. Charlotte lost her sense of smell first and taste followed a week later. She is just out of “quarantine” but all her senses havent come back yet, which is a bummer. We wish you the best as well with getting all your senses back soon!

      Trisha & Char
