Starring Rolls Café’s Key Lime Pie

This treat from Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort has left the menu—but it’s not forgotten! The recipe is from Starring Rolls Café, which opened with the park on May 1, 1989, and remained a popular quick-service stop until 2017. The café was known for its inviting pastry case of morning treats and individual-sized desserts, and some guests also recall its intimate outdoor patio area with umbrella-covered tables that offered a quiet spot to plan the day or take a lunch break. Now this fondly remembered dessert is featured in The Official Disney Parks Cookbook: 101 Magical Recipes from the Delicious Disney Series by Pam Brandon & the Disney Chefs.
