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:

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?

Thoughts on Make Mine Music

make mine music

Make Mine Music was released in 1946 and is the 8th animated feature from Disney’s Studios, and consists of a series of shorts.

Highlights:  We felt like every other short was good.  It has an old fashioned feel to it, and may not be the cartoons that kids would enjoy today, but they’re still fun to watch.  We enjoyed “All the Cats Join In,” “Casey at the Bat,” “Peter and the Wolf,” “Johnnie Fedora and Alice Bluebonnet,” and “The Whale Who Wanted to Sing at the Met.”  All of these were more upbeat, colorful, and had interesting plots.  Peter and the Wolf is without a doubt the stand out.  I love the music and the animation works so well with it.

Low points:  The in between shorts from the ones mentioned above, basically.  “Blue Bayou,” “Without You,” “Two Silhouettes” – they were pretty, I guess, but they were just so slow and boring.  “After You’ve Gone” was a little better but not great.

Music:  Like Fantasia, these shorts are based around the music – so it’s really good.  The music is probably what I enjoyed the most, to be honest.  There were some really good things – Peter and the Wolf, like I mentioned above, but also the incredible opera work on “The Whale Who Wanted to Sing at the Met.”
