A trip to the Walt Disney World Resort and parks isn’t complete without getting some type of mickey shaped treat. One of our favorite foods to start the day with are the Mickey waffles!

Where to Find Mickey Waffles to Start Your Day

If you’re starting your day at Magic Kingdom, you may be looking for an iconic, substantial sugary breakfast. Head over to Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square to the left of Main Street. There are multiple options, such as the hazelnut spread waffle with fresh fruit, and the large Mickey powder sugar-coated waffles.

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 on most, if not all Disney breakfast buffets are the iconic Mickey waffles. They 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.

They will almost always have mickey-shaped waffles available. Make sure to pair them with some protein like eggs, bacon or sausage and a side of fruit for a filling breakfast to start your day.

Are Mickey waffles vegan and gluten-free?

If you order the standard Mickey Waffles at a resort or stand, Mickey Waffles are not vegan. You must request a vegan, gluten-free or allergy friendly version, if they can accommodate. The good news is that almost everywhere on our list above can accommodate for a special dietary need.

All of the allergy Mickey waffles are made friendly for the most common main allergies. These include: gluten/wheat, egg, fish/shellfish, milk, peanut/tree nut, and soy. These are also safe for vegans.

How do you make Mickey waffles at home?

Get a Mickey Waffle Maker

ShopDisney sells a waffle maker that is dual sided with 3 Mickey waffles per side. It makes a total of 6 mini mickey waffles in one batch. My mother-in-law gave us this Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker for a wedding present.

This Mickey waffle iron makes the perfect Mickey waffle and they come out crisp around the edges and golden brown. You can even customize them and create chocolate mickey waffles, blueberry mickey waffles or serve them with powder sugar and maple syrup. It’s a little morning slice of Disney right in your own kitchen.

So if you’re missing Mickey waffles, order the real thing. Here is the direct link to ShopDisney, you can also get it on Amazon for around the same price and faster if you have Prime! It is one of my favorite things, and I think you will love it as much as I do.

Use the Mix that Disney Uses

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. This favorite waffle mix is also a pancake mix.

Disney with Sharlee shares how to make Mickey Waffles at home just like Disney makes them!

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 to the waffle recipe, plus 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. Again, you can check Amazon for Carbon’s Golden Waffle mix as well.
