Some of you may be thinking, “why the hype over waffles?”. You see, the waffles created at Walt Disney World Resort, aren’t just plain ol’ waffles. They come in all shapes and sizes and are served in all sorts of ways. This edition of my Where in Walt Disney World Can I Find? series will focus solely on…you guessed it…waffles and where you can find them throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.
Where In Walt Disney World Can I Find? Disney Waffles!
Let’s see what the “world” has to offer in the way of waffles, shall we?
Walt Disney World recognizes the fact that many of their Guests have specialty dietary requests. By substituting different ingredients and approaches, most Disney chefs, restaurants and quick-service locations can accommodate many common food allergies. “Many Resort restaurants now offer allergy-friendly menus to address these food intolerances—and many are able to accommodate lifestyle requests as well, such as low-fat, low-sodium, no-sugar-added and vegetarian options—often with no advance arrangements!” (Excerpt from the Walt Disney World website) You can find additional information about special dietary needs here.
Two examples of the restaurants that serve these special meals are Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom Park and Trattoria al Forno in Disney’s Boardwalk area. The waffles served at Trattoria al Forno are shaped like Mickey and are usually served with Espresso-Mascarpone Cream and choice of Bacon or Chicken Sausage; however, if you have dietary needs, you may ask that they be served without the cream and a different side item.
As I said in my Where in Walt Disney World Can I Find? The Table Service Resorts Edition, Walt Disney World Resort recognizes the need for restaurant menus that include something for everyone in the family. For those who want a variety, you will be thrilled to know that the Walt Disney World Resort has plenty of buffets and some of those buffets serve waffles! Not just any waffle but Mickey shaped waffles!
Tusker House in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park and Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort are just two of the many buffets that serve up these delightfully cute Mickey waffles.
Character Shaped Waffles
If the Mickey shaped waffles were so cute they made you say “Oh Boy!”, wait until you see the waffles served at ‘Ohana! When you book an advance dining reservation for Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo & Stitch, you’ll dine on both Mickey and Stitch waffles while waiting for your meet and greet with Lilo, Stitch and their pals! Your ‘ohana will feast family-style on waffles and other items such as scrambled eggs, Island-style fried potatoes, Hawaiian pork sausages, smoked bacon and a variety of fresh fruits and breads.
Chicken & Waffles
It didn’t take Disney long to pick up on the chicken and waffle food trend and Guests can now find this combo served at many Disney restaurant locations. If you are in the Magic Kingdom Park, stop by Sleepy Hollow for one of their sweet and spicy chicken and waffle sandwiches. Boatwright’s Dining Hall, the table service restaurant at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort, serves up a hearty portion of chicken and waffles that is sure to satisfy your hunger. There is also a chicken and waffle station at the Kirk Franklin Presents Gospel Brunch at House of Blues. You can read the full review here.
Dark Chocolate Waffles
The Dark Chocolate Waffles served at Captain’s Grille at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort are served with Dried Cherry Compote, Espresso-Mascarpone Cream, Chocolate Shavings, and a choice of Bacon or Sausage. After a plate of these, you’ll think that you’ve died and gone to chocolate heaven!
Star Wars Waffles
Guest, I am your waffle! With the new Star Wars Land coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Guests can now find Darth Vader themed waffles in the Park! The relatively new menu at Backlot Express includes Dark Side Chicken & Waffles which are served with BBQ sauce and maple syrup.
Nutella & Fresh Fruit Waffles
Talk about a winning combination! Who can resist a freshly made waffle slathered with hazelnut chocolate spread and fresh fruit? This sinfully delicious fruit sandwich is served at Sleepy Hollow in the Magic Kingdom Park.
Waffles, Waffles, & More Waffles
Almost every Disney Restaurant has waffles listed on their breakfast menus. Waffles may be served alone. The waffles may come with sides. Some may be mini or the size of your hand. They may even have Disney’s Pop Century Resort logo on them. No matter what category resort you choose to stay in, you’re sure to find the waffle that’s right for you.
Now can you understand the hype about waffles served at Walt Disney World? The ones that I wrote about are only some of those found on the Disney Restaurant menus. Do you have a favorite waffle?
