Dim sum is a style of Chinese cuisine where small plates of a variety of food is prepared and set at the table. It can also refer to small dumplings and buns. In Hong Kong's Disneyland, chefs are taking it a step beyond the usual round shapes and creating dim sum shaped like favorite Disney characters.
Disney is no stranger to making food shaped like its icons, like Mickey waffles and the famous "Mickey bar" ice cream:

This dim sum, however, is even more elaborate. It's served at the Crystal Lotus restaurant in Hong Kong Disneyland on weekends and holidays. The restaurant urges guests to call in advance to make sure their "Disney Dim Sum" will be cooked to order.
Offerings include vegetable buns that look like Toy Story aliens, red bean dessert buns shaped like Frozen characters, and of course: Mickey Mouse buns.
