If you’re starting your day at Magic Kingdom, you may be looking for an iconic substantial sugary breakfast. If you’re wanting a Mickey waffle, head over to Sleepy Hallow in Liberty Square, you will have multiple options, such as the hazelnut spread waffle with fresh fruit, and the large Mickey waffle covered in powdered sugar. Naturally we recommend the large Mickey waffle because I hold the belief that anything Mickey shape will taste better. I mean have you also tried the Mickey shaped ice cream?
If the photo of the large Mickey waffle has your mouth watering, I’m going to tell you, it was delicious. As you can tell from the photo the waffle there was a lot powder sugar on there, we did pretend to act like powder sugar breathing dragons, maybe the sugar hits faster in Disney World. I paired the huge Mickey waffle with a black cup of coffee for a great breakfast as we waited for return time to hit on Space Mountain. My cousin and I chose Magic Kingdom to rope drop, mostly due to this breakfast option.
Are Mickey Waffles on Disney Breakfast Buffets?
One item that is a on most if not all Disney breakfast buffets are the iconic Mickey waffles. There aren’t just for kids either, but if you do find yourself at some of the best Disney breakfast buffets and you’re not able to locate Mickey waffles see if there is another section for kids where they will have those specially shaped waffles.
They say calories don’t count when you’re in Disney, and not to discourage you from enjoying yourself, I’d recommend just keeping your sugar intake in check. So balance out that sweetness with some good protein like eggs, or opting to get some fresh fruit to go along with those waffles. Again not Mickey waffle shaming anyone, but I want you to remember to eat a balance breakfast so you can rope drop your favorite park with the energy required.
Are Mickey waffles vegan? Where to find vegan Mickey waffles?
If you order the standard Mickey Waffles at the a resort, or stand, Mickey Waffles are not vegan. You must request a vegan version, if they can accommodate. Most should have a Vegan friendly version available

How do you make Mickey waffles at home?
If you’re in the mood for some Mickey waffles, make them yourself from the comfort of your home!
We love brining the magic (and delicious eats) home with us when we can’t make it to the parks. There are a few ways you can recreate this magical breakfast. The best foods are in Mickey shaped, and you can get an actual waffle maker that makes the same shapes as they do in all the resorts.
ShopDisney sells a waffle maker that is dual sided with 3 Mickey waffles per side, and my mother-in-law gave us a Mickey Waffle Maker for a wedding present. Let me tell you one thing right now, this thing will cook some waffles for a crowd rather when it’s going. So make sure you have enough batter ready! Trust me, people love Mickey waffles, and when you have them on the weekend with powder sugar, and syrup, it’s a little morning slice of Disney right in your own kitchen.
What kind of waffle mix does Disney use?
We found the exact waffle mix uses for their Mickey waffles to be none other than, Carbon’s Golden Malted Pancake & Waffle Flour which was created over 80 years ago. One of the key ingredients that Carbon’s Malted Pancake and Waffle Flour touts is real vanilla. One of the secrets from many cast members has been to add a bit more vanilla (extract is fine here) with just a spoon full extra of table sugar.
If you go directly to goldenmalted.com you will find they have multiple flavors, and even a gluten free waffle mix for sale. If you’re going to be a purist, then obviously go for the original flavor. However if you’re wanting to try a little bit something different, I highly recommend their blueberry version or even pumpkin mix when it’s in stock. Again, you can check Amazon for Carbon’s Golden Waffle mix as well.
