Disney World in Orlando, Florida is the place for foodies to be. Here, you can get your hands on an iconic treat like Dole Whip or instead opt for over-the-top versions of classics like burgers, cupcakes, and ice cream. One of the many done-up foods Disney is known for is its waffles.
Disney serves up a wide selection of waffles between its theme parks, the Disney Springs entertainment and shopping area, and the various resorts and hotels. While some of these waffles are layered with ice cream and toppings, others are simply shaped like the mouse that started it all.
With that said, it's time to head on a food adventure; Here are the best places to get a waffle in Walt Disney World Resort.
10 Sleepy Hollow
This location, located in Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom, is basically waffle heaven. If you're looking for something savory, you'll be happy to know that you can sink your teeth into a Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich. This delectable dish is served with house-made chips.
If you're an early riser, you can try the Breakfast Egg and Cheese Waffle Sandwich, which is layered with ham and tomatoes. If you're instead a late-night dessert person, the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich, which features a sweet chocolate-hazelnut spread, might be your style.
Yes, you can also get Mickey-shaped waffles here.
9 Wolfgang Puck Express
If you're wandering through Disney Springs during breakfast time, you'll want to head to Wolfgang Puck Express for a pick-me-up. In addition breakfast pizzas, steel-cut oatmeals, and omelets, this quick-service location serves up two classic waffle dishes.
The first of these is the Chocolate Chip Waffles, doused in maple syrup and whipped cream. The second of these is Belgian Waffles, loaded with seasonal fresh fruit, maple syrup, and whipped cream. Nothing beats the basics, especially when they're made well.
8 Vivo Il Gelato
If you're instead in the mood for dessert at Disney Springs, there is no place better to be than Vivo Il Gelato. This gelato shop serves up waffle creations all day long.
While you could go for a Classic Waffle, Fresh Fruit Waffle, Nutella Waffle, or a Chocolate-Chip Waffle, you don't want to miss out on the incredible gelato. Therefore, we recommend the Gelato Waffle, the Waffle Sliders (which features gelato as a filling) or one of the incredible waffle sundaes.
Though you can build your own sundae, the Belgian Brownie Waffle Sundae (which features a brownie waffle, vanilla gelato, sauce, and whipped cream) can't be beaten.
7 Contempo Café
If you're staying at the Contemporary Resort or have time to make a pitstop before you head to the Magic Kingdom, you'll want to take a stop by the Contempo Café.
This restaurant serves mini Mickey-shaped waffles and giant Mickey-shaped waffles during breakfast time. The mini waffle is served as part of the Bounty Platter, which also features scrambled eggs, bacon, pork sausage, breakfast potatoes, and fruit. The giant Mickey-shaped Waffle is its own menu item and comes with your choice of fruit topping as well as bacon or pork sausage.
6 Scat Cat's Club
Over at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter resort sits a jazzy New Orleans-style lounge. Here, you can sip a load of tasty cocktails and munch on a variety of savory appetizers. One of the best of these is the Chicken and Waffles.
This dish combines tender cajun chicken bites with waffle crisps. This is drizzled with buttermilk ranch and topped with sweet candied bacon.
If you're looking to escape the kids for a few hours, this is your destination.
5 Tusker House Restaurant
If you're interested in character dining, Tusker House Restaurant in the Animal Kingdom is one good place to have a memorable breakfast experience. The buffet contains banana bread pudding, breakfast potatoes, scrambled eggs, fruit chutneys, bacon, cinnamon rolls, and more. Of course, waffles are also in the lineup.
Tusker House is known for its Lion King-themed waffles that contain images of Simba and Nala. Don't be fooled by the simplicity; These are warm, fluffy, and bursting with flavor. All you need is a topping of your choice, and you've got a waffles that are adorable and delicious.
4 Plaza Ice Cream Parlor
This Magic Kingdom staple, located along Main Street, U.S.A., serves up all sorts of sundaes. One of the best is The "Plaza" Ice Cream Sundae.
This dessert comes with two scoops of ice cream inside of a fresh-made waffle bowl. It is topped with whipped cream, hot fudge, and a cherry for decoration.
Yes, it's not a waffle in the traditional sense, but let's be honest; It's too decadent to skip over.
3 The Mara
We couldn't create a list on the best place to score a waffle at Disney World without mentioning at least a couple more location that serves up Mickey waffles. The Mara, at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, serves up a Mickey-shaped Waffles entrée, which comes with mixed berries, hand-whipped cream, and bacon or sausage on the side.
You could instead get a Mickey waffle served with scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, grits, and chakalaka (African Salsa).
If you've never had a bubble waffle, now is your time to try it. This kiosk in the Disney Springs marketplace serves up two dishes containing bubble waffles (sweet, thin waffles that look like bubble wrap).
The first of these is the Salted Carmel Bubble Waffle. The waffle bowl is topped with chocolate ice cream, pretzel pieces, whip, crispy pearls, and caramel sauce. The second is the Strawberry Bubble Waffle, which is loaded with vanilla ice cream, strawberries, whip, and strawberry pearls. Both of these are dessert perfection.
1 The Plaza Restaurant
We're finishing out this list with a trip to The Plaza Restaurant at the Magic Kingdom. Located on Main Street U.S.A., this place serves up some of the fanciest Mickey Waffles in all of Disney World.
The main dish here has Mickey Waffles sitting on top of a banana pastry and coated in powdered sugar and colorful sprinkles. The entrée also comes with bacon, sausage, and fruit on the side.
