So good! If you’re missing these little bits of Disney magic, here you go!
Have you ever had a Croissant Donut at Epcot? They are a little piece of heaven at WDW! The mix of the flaky croissant with a warm cinnamon doughnut is to die for. You can purchase these delicious treats at Epcot in the Refreshment Portal. Most people don’t live near Disney property and can’t run over to grab a Croissant Donut whenever they get a craving, but you’re in luck! I found a recipe for making these at home from the Happy Housewife’s website. They are super simple and all you need is a package of crescent rolls, oil, and sugar. Enjoy!
