This month is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and Disney has been giving us ways to celebrate.

Pad Thai Fizz

Disney has rolled out some special characters, live entertainment, and merchandise to celebrate the month. Of course, there are 10 NEW snacks that are inspired by these cultures like the Pad Thai Fizz drink. But if you aren’t able to make it to Disney World this month, D23 is giving you a special way to celebrate at home.

D23 has released the recipe for the Perkins Thai Noodles found at Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen at Magic Kingdom. This restaurant is based on the classic Disney ride, The Jungle Cruise, and is meant to serve as a restaurant for guests of the cruise and the skippers. This recipe is plant-based and can serve 6 people.
