If you’re planning a full day of shopping in Disney Springs, then you’ll need some sustenance. And that begins with the most important meal of the day: breakfast!
We love a good Disney food hack — especially when it combines a duo of our favorite things. And today we’ve got a combo brought to us by Disney Food Blog reader Michael over at @DisneyNumNums! Join us at the Grand Floridian Cafe — and bring your stretchy pants!
Why? Because Michael tells us that if you start with the Grand Floridian Cafe’s Buttermilk Fried Chicken…
…you can end up with some killer Chicken and Waffles — with a Mickey Waffle, no less!
What, what?! In order to make this happen, all you have to do is request a waffle instead of the Crispy Potatoes, Kale, and Bacon that the chicken usually comes with!
You’ll get a choice between a Belgian Waffle and the Mickey Waffle — and you get to keep that Sriracha-Honey Drizzle (and get more on the side, if you want!)!
The server also brought hot maple syrup, butter, and ketchup — just in case you want to change things up a little! How fun is this?! Many thanks to Michael for sharing with us!
Check out our latest review of the Grand Floridian Cafe and its classic Floridian Pancakes and Lobster Thermidor Burger!

It’s time to step aboard the Disney Fantasy Cruise Ship! Today, guest author Rachel Gardner brings us a wonderful review from the princess-themed Royal Court — one of the rotational dining restaurants on this gorgeous Disney Cruise Line ship.
The Royal Court Restaurant on Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Disney Fantasy, is a princess haven!
The restaurant has the princess concept refined to its most basic elegance. This sophisticated restaurant located on Deck 3, adjacent to the lobby, reflects each princess through unique and breathtaking mosaics!
There are two rooms set off from the main dining hall with even more princess décor including beautiful (they look hand-painted!) plates.
One of the two rooms is dedicated to The Princess and the Frog, with large tiled mosaics on the walls.
Princess motifs adorn the restaurant as well. They are so subtle, yet I made it my personal mission to try to spot the unexpected.
The music that plays throughout the restaurants includes songs from classic [Read more…]
Belgian waffles have been a staple of the Epcot Food and Wine Festival for the past two years, and I thought it would be fun to feature the Disney Belgian Waffle recipe as we countdown to the 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
We’ll feature a few more recipes as we continue the countdown to September 28th! If you try them out, be sure to let us know! 🙂 Stay tuned to our 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival pages for all the latest details…

Here we go with another fun Countdown to Food and Wine post! The Epcot Food and Wine Festival will begin in just a couple of days, and I’ve decided to share my excitement by counting down to the Festival with a look at the International Marketplace booths that will be located around the World Showcase Lagoon!
For those who haven’t had the chance to go to the Festival, one of my favorite parts are the dozens of International Marketplaces — little booths, or kiosks, set up that represent a specific country or region. Each booth offers a short menu of tasting plates and drinks from the country or region represented. These tasting items cost anywhere from $2-$7, so they’re a great way to enjoy the Festival without breaking the bank.
This year, Belgium is a brand new addition to the World Showcase Promenade! Exciting options on the menu will include a Belgian waffle, of course, and mussels! Here’s the full menu for Belgium:
- Steamed Mussels with Roasted Garlic Cream
- Freshly Baked Waffles with Berry Compote and Whipped Cream
- Stella Artois
- Godiva Chocolate Iced Coffee (photo below from Tables in Wonderland 2010 Food and Wine Festival Preview)
I can’t wait to try that delicious waffle!
