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:

(Two totally different places, for sure!)

I feel like a lot has been happening lately in the world of Disney!  Some interesting and exciting announcements have come out about both the parks and films.  And as the holidays approach, there are always fun things happening!

Spice Road Table review

spice road table review

I will first up admit that this review will be a little difficult to write – the food we had was all very good, but the portion sizes were super small and just didn’t seem worth the price to us. But it was new and we wanted to try it out, so we headed here for lunch last February.

The seating area, out on the patio, is very nice. I love the look of it – it’s well decorated and you do of course have a great view out over the lagoon. We got lunch around 11:30 and it was almost completely empty at that point.  I imagine a table right on the water would be really nice, as you get an awesome view of the Lagoon.

I decided to try the white wine flight, which has three different types of wine that you can see below. These glasses were pretty tiny.  I enjoyed them and found them all to be pretty light and pleasant. I don’t think one really stood out to me as a big favorite, but they were nice.  My husband had a red wine that was described as very sweet, called the “King of Hearts”.  He liked it, it was very smooth, but not as sweet as he was hoping. He enjoys a really good sweet red wine. JamJar sweet shiraz that we had at Jiko is his favorite wine of all time.

Imagineering Awesome: Mos Eisley Cantina

mos_eisley

I was a featured blogger over at Mouse on the Mind, for their series called Imagineering Awesome!  Melissa Sue asked us this question: If you had unlimited monies, what attraction would you want to see in a Disney Park?  And here was my response…

A restaurant worked really well last year, when I wrote about Tiana’s Palace, so I figured why not do another one this time around? I’d been tossing around a lot of ideas in my head, but after watching Star Wars: A New Hope with my brother this past weekend, I decided to go with the obvious: The Mos Eisley Cantina.

It would absolutely be located in Hollywood Studios. Rumors have been flying that there will be an expanded Star Wars Land there now that Disney owns Lucas Films, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see this restaurant actually happen someday! But aside from the fact that Star Tours is already there, Hollywood Studios would be the perfect place for this restaurant regardless. I feel like Hollywood Studios lacks good restaurants, and it needs something to liven it up.

Disney Resorts Restaurant Tournament!

If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you know that I like to do restaurant tournaments to see which one comes out victorious.  It’s been some time since we’ve had one, so I thought this would be a good chance to introduce it again!  We’ve already done Epcot (Le Cellier won), the three other parks (Be Our Guest was victorious), and Downtown Disney (Raglan Road).  But arguably it’s the resort restaurants that are the best!

There are so many of them that I had to break them into two separate tournaments.  This first one will have most of the regular resort restaurants, and then the second tournament will have signature and character dining.

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 8 restaurants listed.

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