This tasty dessert that can be found at Pongu Pongu at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a must have during your visit to the park.

  • Place one spring roll wrapper on a cutting board. Place one piece of cream cheese in the center of the spring roll and spread evenly on wrapper, leaving a 3/4 inch boarder around the edges. Add 3 tbsp of diced pineapple and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp of sugar.
