Disney Cinnamon Rolls (Main Street Bakery)

"My daughter and I enjoy these delicious cinnamon rolls at Disneyland before we go on the attractions. I add 1/2 cup of sour cream in the dough recipe which gives the rolls a smoother texture. These are absolutely delicious!"

Ready In:
1hr 20mins
24 rolls




  • In small bowl, combine water, yeast, and sugar. Stir until dissolved. Set aside.
  • In large bowl, mix pudding according to package instructions with milk. To this add ½ cup melted butter, egg and salt. Mix well, then add yeast mixture and blend well.
  • Gradually add flour and knead until smooth. Place in a very large greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size.
  • Punch down and let rise again for second time.
  • Roll dough on a very large floured surface. Dough should roll out to a long rectangle, about 34×21 inches in size.
  • Take the 1 cup of melted butter and spread over entire dough surface, using a pastry brush.
  • In small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over top of buttered dough. Roll dough up like a jelly roll. Measure dough every 2 inches and cut with a knife.
  • Take each roll into the palm of your hand and gently pack the roll (this keeps it from coming apart during baking).
  • Place each roll in a buttered baking pan and allow to rise in a warm place for about 20 minutes.
  • Bake in a preheated 350ª oven until golden brown in color, about 15–20 minutes. Frost rolls while still warm.
  • Cream Cheese Frosting.
  • In mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until smooth. Spread on the very warm rolls. Enjoy!

  1. I had been looking for a terrific cinnamon roll recipe... and I have found it! the copy cat recipe for Disneyland Main Street cinnamon rolls.... is the BEST!! I think the secret ingredient is the pudding. I have found most rolls dry out the 2nd day....these are moist and delicious for longer... if they last! Thank yo LUV2COOKAND BAKE....
