So, what’s #OnTheList this week? Why, it’s a breakfast item that is worth waking up early for every single time…
… because nothing says “Good morning!” quite like a plate full of MICKEY WAFFLES!!
We’re starting the day with waffles, waffles, and MORE waffles at the Roaring Fork!
Oh, and did I mention they’re MICKEY WAFFLES?
Now, we’re no strangers to Roaring Fork, the Counter Service restaurant at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Typically, though, we’re taking a look at their bakery case, which is known for adding some terrific cupcakes to the Disney Cupcake realm. Through the years, those have included the Carrot Cake Cupcake, the Chocolate Caramel Cupcake, and the S’mores Cupcake. And the Magic Cookie Bar, while not a cupcake, is certainly no slouch of a dessert.
But Roaring Fork has another claim to fame, thanks to a selection of Mickey Waffles available throughout the morning. And though they aren’t technically desserts like their bakery case counterparts (Captain Obvious says “You’re welcome” for pointing that out ;-D), each of the three selections offer, in their own ways, a decadent start to your day at Disney World.
So get ready to step in with me and say “Good morning!” to the Roaring Fork!
The Roaring Fork naturally echoes the rustic Pacific Northwest vibe of its home, Wilderness Lodge.
The decor is so in keeping with the rest of the Lodge that the most surprising thing about Roaring Fork is not so much the ambience, but the size. Just a couple of ordering counters, refrigerators, and a place to refill your Rapid Fill Mugs make up the whole of the place. [Read more…]
Update: Wilderness Waffles are no longer being served at Roaring Fork. They are now on the menu at Whispering Canyon Cafe.
Join me in welcoming back Marc Stumbo with a review of the sweet breakfast waffle dishes at Roaring Fork at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. I’ve been wanting to share these for a long time!
“Roaring Fork,” which I believe translates roughly to “Fishy sign, hidden Mickey Waffles” is located deep inside the majestic Wilderness Lodge on Bay Lake.
My Google translate window might be a bit off, but the point remains that Roaring Fork is a hidden gem in an amazing resort that doesn’t force you to pay for a buffet to get at those tasty, tasty Mickey Waffles.
Does the eatery live up to its potential? Find out LIVE in two nights on NBC prime time.
Above you can see the stunning lobby of the Wilderness Lodge, home of the Whispering Canyon Café serving all-you-can-eat Mickey Waffles for breakfast. One day, you’ll graduate to that level of waffle consuming prowess, but today is a training run at an eatery around the corner.
Resist the temptation that is the Whispering Canyon Café and look for this long hallway to Roaring Fork. It will serve as today’s gateway to flavor country.
I know what you’re thinking when looking at that photo…how did he get a shot with nobody in it? Disney Magic, my friends. At the end of this long hallway is our prize: the Roaring Fork quick service dining location where we’ll be eating breakfast.
One of the nicest entrances to a quick service dining location you’ll see at Walt Disney World awaits you as you speed past, shoving your way to the front of the waffle queue [Read more…]
