You heard me right! Waffle sandwiches!!!
But before we go off on a tangent, let’s start at the beginning…
Sleepy Hollow, the small counter-service location in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Liberty Square, has long offered some of our favorite snacks, including the large Mickey-shaped waffles (one of the last places you could get these!), and the filling and delicious chicken and wild rice soup.
We’ve heard through the grapevine (Thanks, Laurie!) that the menu has changed significantly and asked one of our colleagues, Brooke Fehr from DisZine.com, to investigate during her recent WDW visit!
New Waffle Sandwiches
The new menu at Sleepy Hollow has introduced what we think will be a new Disney food classic — waffle sandwiches. And these are true waffle sandwiches — as in a giant waffle with stuff crammed into it, then folded over!
There are three new offerings: A sweet and spicy chicken waffle and a ham, prosciutto, and Swiss cheese waffle, both for $6.99; and a Nutella and fresh fruit waffle for $5.59. None of these are currently listed for a snack credit.
Here’s Brooke’s report:
“The waffles were huge. Both sandwiches were full-sized, round waffles, folded in half with the filling in the middle. Think ‘waffle taco.’ While neither sandwich came with any sides, they were more than enough food for a heavy snack or meal. They were served in those tiny baskets, so they were a bit top heavy and awkward since the sandwiches were much larger than the baskets.
These were your typical WDW breakfast waffle — malty, slightly sweet, and freshly made. No leftover waffles here. In fact, both sandwiches, not just the waffles, were freshly made.
Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich
East meets West in this twist on the fried chicken and waffles classic. This waffle incorporates a large, batter-fried chicken breast, doused in a sweet and spicy Asian sauce, and topped with creamy coleslaw and fresh arugula.
The sauce had some warmth; the pepper lingered in my mouth, but it wasn’t unpleasant. I didn’t have a drink, and eating the sandwich didn’t cause me to run for one. I’d rate the spice factor as mild to medium.
This sandwich, like the ham, prosciutto, and Swiss version, is only available from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich
Again, huge. The full-sized waffle is pulled off of the iron and slathered generously with Nutella, a chocolate-hazelnut spread. It’s then topped with a large serving of fruit — in my case, banana slices, strawberry slices, and blueberries.
The fruit is fresh (although the strawberries did seem to be in a very light syrup), and there was easily more than a cup of fruit on the sandwich. Again, delicious, and perfect for breakfast for one hungry person. Enough for a couple of people to share as a snack. This one is available all day.”
Other Menu Changes
We’re sorry to report that some of our favorites have now been taken off of the menu to make way for the waffle sandwiches. The chicken and wild rice soup and the large Mickey-head waffles can no longer be purchased here at Sleepy Hollow.

I’m happy that they’ve kept the ice cream cookie sandwiches on the menu!! I’d be very sad to see those go…
