Bucket List: Have a waffle sandwich at Sleepy Hollow

waffle sandwich

I’m not sure why I decided the waffle sandwich was special enough to have its own item on the bucket list, but it did so here we go!  I tried one of the waffle sandwiches at Sleepy Hollow, located in the Magic Kingdom, in April 2013.  I went with the nutella and fruit waffle for lunch:

Maybe it doesn’t seem like a lunch food, but it sounded like a good lunch to me! This was better than I even imagined it would be. The waffle was great, it was crisp and delicious. But for me the fruit was the real highlight – all of the fruit was super fresh and full of flavor. It was incredibly messy to eat though – I definitely made a mess ;) It was very filling too – it held me through til dinner 5 hours later and I didn’t get get a snack when the rest of my family did in the afternoon because I was still full from the waffle! For around $6 I think it’s a really good bargain for lunch too in WDW, or as a snack to share. Keep in mind that this one is really, really sweet, so if you want something more savory for lunch you might want to go with one of the other options.

My husband had the sweet and spicy chicken waffle sandwich:

The waffle was the same good quality, and he enjoyed the rest that was on it too.  He mentioned that he really liked the level of spiciness – it stood out to him but not too much to be unbearably spicy.  This one was quite messy too, and it was difficult to eat whether you tried to pick it up or used a knife and fork.

There is also a ham, prosciutto, and swiss waffle available, and during breakfast you can get a ham and cheese omelet waffle sandwich.  Or if you’re just looking for a snack, you can get a waffle with cinnamon, waffle with strawberries and cream, or waffle with powdered sugar!

Have you tried any of the Waffles at Sleepy Hollow?  Which one is your favorite?

My Disney “must eat” list

When it comes to Disney, one of my favorite things is food.  Whether it’s a quick snack or a fancy sit down meal, I love all that the parks have to offer.  I religiously read the Disney Food Blog, and pin items I want to try on future visits.  But I thought it might be easiest to have a place where I can compile all of the things I want to try!  On these lists I’ve included items I have tried that I feel are “must try” for others, as well as ones that I haven’t tasted yet that I’m drooling just thinking about it!  So without further ado, here are the items on my Disney “must eat” list:

January 2015 Monthly Round Up

Wow, we’ve reached 2015!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a great start to your year.  Christmas is my favorite holiday of all, but I have to say that my second favorite is probably New Year’s.  I love the idea of starting fresh, and looking forward at all that will come in the next year!  For me, 2015 holds two trips to Disney World and my very first trip to Disneyland, as well as two Disney half marathons that should earn me my coast to coast medal.  I’m excited!

Disney in your Day News

The past year has been a good one for Disney in your Day, but I’m excited for all that is to come in the new year.  December included lots of holiday themed posts, as well as my review of Into The Woods.  In the immediate future you can expect more thoughts on Disney movies, as well as the end of the restaurant tournament.  Plus, I want to roll out a new series, “Other theme parks,” featuring other places around the country that might be worth visiting when you can’t get to Disney.  And I’ll continue with my Glass Slipper Challenge training until February, when I actually run the Glass Slipper Challenge!

Signature resort restaurants – Final round

resort-restaurants-part-2-round-4

We’re down to the last two in this restaurant tournament!  It was insanely close between the last two match ups – both of them were decided by just one or two votes.  While Victoria and Albert’s is probably technically the best restaurant on the list, I’m not surprised it didn’t quite make the cut just because many people haven’t been able to try it due to the price.  So that leaves us with Jiko and Ohana!  Which one do you prefer?

Signature Restaurants Resorts Tournament – Round 3

It’s down to only 4 restaurants left – and they’re all pretty outstanding in my opinion!  Hard to choose a favorite, but that’s what this is all about.  So tell me, out of these match-ups, which are your favorites?  Jiko or California Grill?  Ohana or Victoria and Alberts? (Two totally different places, for sure!)

Let me know your votes by either commenting here on the blog or posting on our facebook page!

Signature Resorts Restaurant Tournament – Round 2

The votes from the first week are in – did your favorites make the cut to the next round?  There were some pretty close match ups, especially between Narcoossee’s and Yachtsman!  But here we have our top 8.

This week we have some even more difficult match ups, so make sure you vote for your favorites to stay in the running!  We’ve got 4 match ups to vote on, so comment here or on our facebook page with your favorites in each match-up!

Signature Resort Restaurants Tournament – Round 1

It’s finally time for another restaurant tournament!  This time it’s the signature restaurants at the resorts.  I have a feeling this one is going to be really tough, because there are just so many good ones!  This tournament will actually include both signature and character dining at the resorts.  We’ve taken care of most of the other restaurants at Disney in various tournaments: We’ve already done Epcot (Le Cellier won), the three other parks (Be Our Guest was victorious), Downtown Disney (Raglan Road), and non-signature resort restaurants (Sanaa).

All you have to do to cast your vote is to comment on this blog post, or comment on the facebook page.  Please try to place a vote for each match up, even if you haven’t eaten there – it’s just for fun, so take a guess at which one you would like more, or choose which one sounds more appealing to you!  For this first round, you should have  7 restaurants listed (Victoria and Albert’s gets a free pass into the second round).

I look forward to hearing your thoughts and any comments you might have on the restaurants!
