2020 has been a strange year, but we can always count on Disney for a smile. Whether you’re a fan of the animated musicals (I mean, who isn’t?), or Marvel, or Star Wars, Disney has something for everyone.
Lately, Disney fans around the world have have started a new trend: making themed charcuterie boards based on some of the company’s best-known characters. Read on to experience the magic for yourself!
