Sleepy Hollow Review

IMG_2813

Nestled in a small corner right near Cinderella Castle lies one of my very favorite eateries in all of Disney’s Magic Kingdom: Sleepy Hollow Inn. Sleepy Hollow Inn serves funnel cake, ice cream cookie sandwiches, a variety of drinks and most importantly, waffle sandwiches.

Sleepy Hollow offers 3 varieties of waffle sandwich. In the morning and evening hours you can get a Nutella (hazelnut spread, for those not familiar!) and fresh fruit waffle sandwich. During lunch time you can also get a spicy chicken waffle sandwich and a ham, prosciutto and swiss waffle sandwich. During this trip we got the spicy chicken and Nutella sandwiches.

Each sandwich was substantial enough that we could call it “lunch”. I had the spicy chicken waffle sandwich that had a sweet and spicy sauce on the chicken, plus some slaw and the waffle. It was perfect! I ate every bite. Tara tried the Nutella and fresh fruit waffle sandwich which came stuffed full of strawberries, banana and blueberries. This sandwich was also a hit!

Another major benefit of eating at Sleepy Hollow is the location. With a view of the castle that is hard to match there are also several tables to sit and enjoy your waffle or funnel cake. In my opinion Sleepy Hollow is a spot not to be missed!

Breakfast Options at Magic Kingdom

A recap of your breakfast options for a morning at Disney’s Magic Kingdom!

Quick Service/Snack

Main Street Bakery/Starbucks: With a wide variety of options in a great location, Starbucks/Main Street bakery is a good place to stop and grab a bite on your way into the park. The lines here can get quite long, but you know exactly what you’re getting: good coffee, pastries and breakfast sandwiches!

Gaston’s Tavern: Gaston’s has a very limited breakfast “menu” (two items, really) Gaston’s might not seem worth the trek, but they are! Giant cinnamon rolls and delicious chocolate croissants are featured at Gaston’s, and they make for a mouthwatering and quick breakfast, as the line at Gaston’s is smaller than most other breakfast places in the Magic Kingdom

Sleepy Hollow: My personal favorite. The waffles served here are something special. Breakfast options include the Nutella and fresh fruit waffle (served all day) and a breakfast-only waffle; featuring prosciutto, cheese, egg and tomato. You can also pick up an iced coffee at Sleepy Hollow and make for a complete breakfast! In my opinion it is not a trip to Disney World without a visit to Sleepy Hollow for at least one waffle sandwich.

Be Our Guest: While technically a quick service restaurant for breakfast (and lunch) Be Our Guest does require reservations 180 days in advance. Breakfast is a little pricy for a non-character meal at $19.99 per adult and $11.99 per child but the menu is fairly large (visit here to see!), the food delicious, and the setting stunning.

Table Service Restaurants

Crystal Palace: Featuring characters from Winnie the Pooh, Crystal Palace is a reasonably priced character meal around $25-30 per adult. Breakfast is served buffet style and also has an omelet station. Read Dana’s review here for more details!

Cinderella’s Royal Table: One of the most expensive meals on Disney property at $55-60 per adult, or 2 dining plan credits, Cinderella’s Royal Table is still what many would consider a not-to-miss meal and experience. At Cinderella’s Royal Table you’re truly spoiled by amazing food in an unbeatable location. Character interaction with Disney princesses is top notch and really could there be anything better than actually dining inside Cinderella’s castle? I think not!
