Welcome to a review of the holiday treats at Magic Kingdom! We’ll be running around Magic Kingdom today, trying some of the treats and eats available during the holiday season at the park. Let’s take a look at some of the treats you can find at Sleepy Hollow! Everything we review here is available daily, and NOT a Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party exclusive.
In addition to the Santa Mickey Waffle Sundae, you can find the Mickey Jingle Bell Sipper and Gingerbread Mickey Straw at Sleepy Hollow.
Santa Mickey Waffle Sundae – $7.79
Red velvet waffle topped with mint-chip ice cream, seasonal sprinkles, chocolate sauce, and peppermint powder
It seems like the past few specialty waffles we’ve tried at Sleepy Hollow have been quite bad. Unfortunately, this one is no exception. What was described as a red velvet waffle turned out to be a completely burnt, flavorless mess. Before we get into our photos, here’s the PR photo released.
We add it to the review because you won’t actually get to see Mickey on this waffle if you order it yourself. Every single waffle we saw served was served with the scoop of mint-chip ice cream right in the middle of the waffle, completely covering Mickey’s face. We’re not sure if it’s just a lack of care from the Cast Members serving the waffle, or if this is the way it’s supposed to be presented, but you very likely won’t be able to see the Mickey part of the Santa Mickey Waffle Sundae.
The peppermint powder turned out to be essentially chunks of peppermint thrown on top. While the peppermint “powder” and mint-chip ice cream were a nice combo, there weren’t nearly enough positives about this for us to recommend it. Maybe if it wasn’t terribly burnt it would have been more tolerable, but we don’t have much hope for the next waffle based on what we’ve experienced in the past.
