Bucket List: Have a waffle sandwich at Sleepy Hollow

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?

Thoughts on the Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad

the-adventures-of-ichabod-and-mr-toadHighlights:  The Wind in the Willows is a fun short with a cute story and memorable characters.  The Legend of Sleepy Hallow portion has some high points in it, though overall I wasn’t a huge fan (though I know many people are).  But I did enjoy some of the music in it and some of the scenes.

Low points:  The Legend of Sleepy Hallow came off as a bit odd to me.  I think part of this is because the original story itself is odd, but then turning it into an animated movie presumably for kids makes it a bit weirder.  It seems funny and lighthearted at the beginning, but the ending… not so much.  Ichabod himself isn’t very likable so there’s not a ton of investment in the characters.
