Mickey Waffles Recipe – Disney Parks

You can’t talk about breakfast at Walt Disney World without mentioning the famous Mickey waffles. If you’re on a Disney property and it’s breakfast time, you can’t avoid them… And who would want to?

They’re served at buffets, they’re covered in fruit, chocolate, syrup, whipped cream, chocolate bits, cherries, M&M’s…  Sometimes all at once. They’re a Disney institution, right on up there with Cinderella’s Castle, fireworks, and waiting in line.

Luckily for us, Disney is not at all stingy about sharing their recipe for their famous waffles. They’re fast, easy to make, and taste so much like Disney World that, quite honestly, I felt a lump in my throat and got a tiny bit misty thinking about how much I missed Disney.

If you’re wondering if beating the egg whites will make a difference, let me just tell you, yes, it does. In fact, I think the big secret to this waffle recipe is those stiff egg whites. While the waffles are certainly very good if you don’t take that extra step, they will be denser, rise a little less, and will be noticeably less fluffy. Trust me, the extra work is worth the effort.

Also a note about the sugar…  The “official” recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of sugar. However, I have it from the chef at the Crystal Palace that in reality, they tend to be a little more liberal with the sugar, making a sweeter waffle.

Having made this recipe both ways, I can say that most of the time I’ve had Mickey in his waffle form, he had the extra tablespoon (or maybe even more!) of sugar. Also, according to my inside source, depending on where you had him, he may have had a splash of extra vanilla too. I was told that within the Magic Kingdom, they like their vanilla a wee bit stronger.

Hi! I'm Ruthe Bosco, and I'm an editor at thedisneychef.com. I love cooking and trying new recipes, but I also love spending time in the kitchen with my family and friends and that's why I love the idea of having a website that focuses on sharing recipes with others who are just starting out in the kitchen. Because we all have to start somewhere, right? I'm a big fan of cooking for my friends and family, because I think it's important to be able to do something with your hands while you're spending time with people you care about. It helps everyone feel more connected and relaxed when they're sitting down together over a meal. I'm also passionate about being able to balance my work life with my personal life and because The Disney Chef is such an interesting place to work, it makes it easy for me to find the right balance between my two worlds!
