My name is Red Reyna and I started The Disney Diner (in July 2011) as a resource for Disney fans to bring a little "magic" into their homes. Like most families, it takes us a good while to save up for a trip to Disney World, and so I started to make Disney-inspired and/or duplicated meals in between visits. I figured other families would enjoy doing the same and so The Disney Diner recipe blog was started. It was my two sons that suggested we video the recipes to make them easier to follow. I thought it was a great idea and so we posted our first video: Butterfinger Cupcakes from Starring Rolls Cafe (Hollywood Studios) on Sept. 6, 2011. (If you click the link, please excuse the video, it was our first try and the quality is quite bad).
Since then, the show has grown and so have our number of followers (53,000+ subscribers, at last check). Along with growth, comes change. As of Sept. 2014, the show has expanded beyond just Disney recipes, our "virtual cookbook" now includes recipes duplicated from/or inspired by: books, movies, TV shows, and video games. The name has also changed to: Let's Eat Fiction! Our very first recipe video posted under the new name and format was: Over the Rainbow Cupcakes (The Wizard of Oz). As you can see, the quality of our show has dramatically changed since our first episode in 2011.
The name of our show may have changed but my recipe requirements haven't. I'm still going to create and share recipes that are: 1) easy to make, 2) require little time, and 3) use easy to find ingredients. I'm a mom too, and I know that most parents don't have the time to drive from store to store looking for specific ingredients or spend half the day in the kitchen to prepare one meal or dessert. I appreciate quick and simple recipes that taste delicious and I'm sure you do too.
So, feel free to browse our recipes and watch some episodes. We post new recipe videos (on YouTube) every week on "Fiction Friday". And while you're there, SUBSCRIBE to our channel so you can be updated about future episodes. You can also find us on: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ and Tumblr.
