Review: Mickey Waffles at Home

Who wants Mickey Waffles?

This post contains affiliate links. The Disney Food Blog posted how to make (legit) Mickey Waffles at home. Really?!

Aside from the unobtainable waffle iron, all it takes is the right mix. Yeah! A Mix! I followed the link in the DFB post and then I found I could get the mix cheaper at Amazon. So, I had Mickey-less Mickey Waffles for breakfast this weekend. I love Prime shipping.

Was it as simple as using the appropriate mix? Yup. I thought my waffles might have been a bit drier but I'm not positive (I eat mine doused in strawberries so it's hard to be sure). It could be a difference in the pan, or even the cooking spray, or maybe the Disney waffles sitting before they're served; it was pretty minimal.
Your Waffle Iron You do know your waffle iron will make the biggest difference in texture, right? The first waffle iron we had when we were married was a hand-me-down from my parents. I don't know why my mother had a second waffle iron. We had a…

The Most Annoying Part of Disney Planning and the Worst Part to Forget

You've decided to go to Disney.

If you're lucky, you've decided well over six months in advance. Maybe you've even booked your hotel, gotten tickets, and if it's the right time of year, you got a package with free Disney Dining!

You're all set, right?


Keepin' It Cool

After writing about the snacks to pack for your car trip to Disney, I’m (a) hungry and (b) inspired to make recommendations for a few “essentials.”

If you’ve ever had leaky coolers, warm water bottles, or strewn snack cups, you’re in the right place. These are the handful of “little snackers” essentials I’m covering today.

This post contains affiliate links. We had a few pleasant surprises with the “cool” items we brought with us so I wanted to share our success.

Save Money & Time

Could your family break the bank with their snacking habits? Do you just want to walk from one place to another without having to stop to buy food?
That’s my kids. They barely eat, until we’re in the car or passing all those food kiosks inside a Disney park. It gets both expensive and time-consuming, fast.
Luckily, you can bring food into the Disney Parks. And you should, because it’s hot and you need to eat and drink regularly.

The Worst Mistake Disney Newbies Make

I love to plan but there's nothing I hate more, especially on vacation, than being over-scheduled.

That is sooooo easy to do at Walt Disney World.

There are so many amazing things to do and you want to avoid long waits (or no seats) so you get your FastPasses and dining reservations. And then...

Yup, you're over-scheduled.

Even if you are a "no-plan" vacationer, at Disney you can have some serious disappointment. Everyone else got their FastPasses and dining reservations and now you can't get in to do what you want.

Over-scheduled or locked out?

Are those your only choices? No!

Luckily, it's pretty easy to manage either situation and avoid the mistake of bad (or no) planning.
