Every time I visit a Disney message board, the restaurant posts are always filled with questions about Mickey waffles. I thought I’d stick up a picture and give a little info about these yummy little guys.

Disney restaurants have “waffled” through the years, and many have gone back and forth in recent years between serving them and not serving them. For example, Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom served square waffles with Pooh characters on them for a long time, and have now switched to Mickey waffles. Also, Wilderness Lodge’s Whispering Canyon Cafe and private dining served waffles shaped like pinecones for many years, and have in my recent experience served Mickey waffles. I have no idea whether this is because they run out of their original waffles, or if Mickey waffles are in such high demand that all restaurants are beginning to carry them as a staple.

Here’s where you can safely rely on Mickey waffles for breakfast. Please send me an email at webmaster@disneyfoodblog.com with your updates!:

  • Chef Mickey’s: Contemporary Resort
  • Donald’s Safari Breakfast: Tusker House in Animal Kingdom
  • ‘Ohana and Captain Cook’s: Polynesian Resort
  • Crystal Palace: Magic Kingdom
  • Cape May Cafe: Beach Club Resort
  • Whispering Canyon Cafe: Wilderness Lodge
  • Food Courts: Most food courts at the value and moderate hotels
  • 1900 Park Faire: Grand Floridian

Most folks recommend that the “secret ingredient” in Mickey waffles is Carbon’s Golden Malted Flour. Here’s a good recipe to use for Mickey Waffles:

4 eggs, separated
1 cup milk
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
2 cups flour
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla (optional)

Beat egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until light. Add cooled melted butter, milk and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking powder & salt, beat well. Beat egg whites until stiff and gently fold into batter. Bake and serve.

Purchasing your own Mickey Mouse waffle maker is proving to be a bit difficult these days. The maker that produces waffles that most resemble those served at the parks and resorts is uniformly out of stock or not sold anymore online. The next best version was recalled in 2007 for bad wiring causing risk of shock. Of course, you can buy it on ebay if you want to take the risk.

So, my friends, your options for make-at-home mickey waffles are reduced to: the Mickey Then and Now waffle maker and the Disney Mickey and the Gang 5-in-1 Tasty Baker and Waffle Maker.

    So these are the all-famous Mickey Waffles, interesting!

    All the Waffle makers look pretty interesting and the one with all the characters are pretty decently priced.

    I really want to try one of these now but I will definitely keep an eye out for places serving them next time I go.

    The best waffles on Disney property in my opinion are those of the Boma breakfast buffet…Speaking only for myself, these beauties are unparalleled. Crispy on the outside tender and warm on the inside and good with just a little bit of syrup or a massive helping for those who can’t resist the sugary golden goodness. If you haven’t tried them, please do so, I beseech you. I think they’re a little different than what you would find everywhere else on property.

    AJ, Do you know if the waffles are a snack at places like Pop cafeteria? I got a great one with coffee at MK and had a pleasant breakfast overlooking Cinderella’s Castle. Yum!

    Shannon — I’m pretty sure Pop waffles aren’t mickey waffles — they’re giant POP ones ;-) Not sure if they’re a snack; I can check that out when I stay there in September!

    Just an update on this post — Mickey waffles at Pop Century are available as part of a kid’s meal breakfast (that adults can order, too!) with 2 slices of bacon or sausage, applesauce, and a drink (I took a small kid’s bottle of water to go to take into the park, as I had a refillable mug for coffee.) — all for under $5! but not for a snack credit…

    I have only wonderful praises for Chef Mickey’s breakfast. Wonderful service, food, and of course the characters!!!

  7. stef says

    Is there a quick service restaurant on premises at the park where I can get a Mickey Waffle. I really want an allergen free one for my daughter. (Milk-free, Egg-free, Nut-free)

    But I’m not inclined to add a buffet for our family. I’ve already stretched the budget with our other table service reservations and I’d prefer not to eat buffet.

    We are staying off property. If I drive to Contempo Cafe at Contemporary resort, will I need to pay a lot for parking? Is there a Disney resort that is easier to drive to? We are staying within walking distance of Downtown Disney. Any places there?

    Is there an easier way?

  8. Shar says

    I have searched EVERY where for one…they are OUT OF STOCK aka:Discontinued. If anyone knows where I might purchase one please let me know. My grandsons are BIG Micky Mouse fans!!

  9. Amy says

    Trail’s End at the Cabins have a chocolate chip version in the breakfast buffet. They also have the best French Toast Bread Pudding with a Pecan Sauce. 100% better than that dry French Toast thing at the Polynesian.

  10. Chaz says

    The smaller mickey waffles I had at Chef Mickey’s breakfast were amazing! Especially because I smothered them in chocolate and caramel sauces. Along with a spoonful of whipped cream.

  11. Tracey PM says

    Love Disney Mickey Waffles, this recipe, was disappointing. First let me say I love DFB and I’m very appreciative of the content. This recipe was disappointing however. I followed everything to the word (including the Carbon’s that I ordered from Amazon). The recipe as it stands has this overwhelming egg flavor, not at all Disney. The texture was fantastic, they cooked great in our Mickey Waffle Maker, but we just couldn’t stand the taste. We also tried the Carbon’s by itself, which was pretty good, but obviously didn’t carry the Disney Magic we love and miss.

  12. Jamie Z. says

    Mickey Waffles are vegan, which is part of their charm. This recipe however, is not.

  13. Liesl says

    Olivia’s at Old Key West also has Mickey Waffles in their Eggs and Waffles breakfast menu item.

  14. Shiv says

    Hi..the waffle mould that they serve the waffle in.. at Disneyland.. can that be used for baking purpose.

  15. Donna says

    My granddaughter felt so special at Chef Mickey’s when they made her egg-free and whey free waffles. Is there anyway I can get the recipe?
