Welcome to The Fairytale Foodie! I’m Heather Metroka, the imaginative soul behind this magical venture. As a cookbook writer and food content creator, I blend my love for Disney and cooking to bring enchanting culinary experiences to your home. Alongside my wonderful husband, Matt, and our adorable cat, I'm preparing for our next adventure—moving from sunny Southern California to the vibrant Phoenix area.

My Disney journey began in the early 2000s with my first Disneyland season pass. I spent as much time as possible in the parks, enjoying all the things, especially the foods. In 2016, I turned my Disney obsession into a business with Disney-inspired Mouse ears, but my true passion unfolded when I ventured into Disney-themed cuisine. After our wedding, Matt and I started hosting Disney Date Nights with elaborate feasts inspired by beloved films. These magical evenings quickly captured hearts on social media, leading to the rebranding of The Fairytale Foodie in June 2022.


At The Fairytale Foodie, it’s all about crafting unforgettable Dinner and a Movie nights inspired by classic films, especially Disney. In 2023, I launched my first Dinner and a Movie Cookbook, The Magical Dinner & a Movie cookbook, to help families and couples recreate the Disney magic at home with meticulously planned menus and delicious recipes. Since then, I've released three more Dinner & a Movie Digital Cookbooks and a Mixology Recipe Book.

My mission is to merge the worlds of food and Disney, creating joyful moments around the dinner table for families and couples alike. The enthusiastic response from my community has been incredible. I’ve connected with amazing moms wanting to bring extra magic into their homes and couples who love Disney as much as we do. My video content has become a standout favorite, helping thousands of families bring Disney magic to their dining tables.

Looking ahead, I’m thrilled about what’s next for The Fairytale Foodie. There’s a non-Disney Dinner and a Movie night in the works, along with some exciting Halloween plans. My goal remains to create magical experiences that bring families together through the love of food and Disney.

Thank you for joining me on this enchanting journey. Let’s make some magic in the kitchen together!
