If you know anything about me and Disney, you must know that I LOVE Disney food! One of the things that excites me the most about knowing I’m heading south to visit the mouse, is that I know I’m going to get to try out some of my most favorite foods, some that I can get no where else on the planet but at Walt Disney World! This blog, is dedicated to one of those most beloved snacks, the Nutella Waffle Sandwich.
Nestled back in Liberty Square in the Magic Kingdom, you will find Sleepy Hollow, a quick service snack shop. It is located close to The Hall of Presidents. What makes it a well kept secret? Well, many I know choose not to check out The Hall of Presidents, especially if they are frequent visitors to the Magic Kingdom, and have seen the show before. If you are one who skips this attraction, then you probably don’t walk by the entrance to Sleepy Hollow. But I promise you, if you check it out once, and try one of their tasty treats, then you will certainly not pass by this place again!
One of my most favorite snacks in all of the Magic Kingdom (taking only a third place seat to the Dole Whip and the turkey leg) is the Fresh Fruit and Nutella Waffle Sandwich. If you like fruit, and you like chocolate, and you like waffles (because let’s face it, who doesn’t like waffles), then you must certainly try this waffle sandwich! With a good size serving of Nutella spread across all those little square dimples, and fresh strawberries, blueberries, and banana slices, this thing is to die for! And it makes a great breakfast, if you chose to eat that early morning meal in the parks instead of your resort.
Looks amazing, huh? Those cast members must make it with an extra large heaping of love too, because I’ve tried to make the deliciousness at home, and while mine is good too, it just doesn’t taste quite as great as the one they serve at Sleepy Hollow. Maybe mine is just missing the ambiance of the Magic Kingdom and Cinderella’s Castle, ya think? And just in case you are someone who doesn’t like Nutella (because I know there are those who exist, but I can’t say I understand how they survive day to day life without chocolate,) there are several other super yummy treats served here.
You can enjoy a waffle sandwich with ham or chicken, or just with strawberries and whip cream. They have funnel cakes and homemade ice cream cookie sandwiches (which you can get made with birthday cake ice cream!) They also have expresso, water and other beverages, and a Liberty Swirl Slush, which is GREAT on a hot summer day. Be sure to check out Sleepy Hollow on your next visit to Liberty Square in Magic Kingdom. A must hit stop for your quick service snack!
