Sleepy Hollow Refreshments

by josh on October 6, 2012

10/8/14 Update: Menu updated.

Location: In Liberty Square to the right of Hall of Presidents. If you’re walking from The Hub into Liberty Square, you’ll see it on your right before arriving at the rest of the Land.

Food Type: Waffle Sandwiches, Ice Cream, Treats, Beverages.

Dining Plan: One quick service credit and some items count as snacks.

Menu:



(Omelet Waffle available through 11am)

Unique Offerings: The Waffle Sandwiches are only available here.

Advantages:

  • The Waffle Sandwiches are a lot of food for the money.
  • Waffles are prepared fresh while you wait.
  • Ice Cream Sandwiches are gigantic and Sleepy Hollow offers seasonal ice cream flavors.

Disadvantages:

  • Waits for the Waffles can be long since they can only make so many at a time.  Expect to wait five to ten minutes for your Waffle Sandwich.  Waffle Sandwiches aren’t available after 5pm, so they aren’t an option for dinner.
  • While the Waffle Sandwiches sound intriguing, they “don’t work” in my opinion.  More info underneath the pictures below.

Value: There are some good uses of a snack credit here and the Waffle Sandwiches are a good value for the money.  Most of the items are standard Disney pricing, but value here is average to above average.

Reputation: The Waffle Sandwiches seem to be recommended more by others than me.  The Ice Cream Sandwiches are amazing and Sleepy Hollow usually has an exclusive, seasonal ice cream flavor that isn’t available elsewhere.  For example, they have Pumpkin around Halloween.  The Waffles are among the best on property.

Food Choices:

Sweet and Spicy Chicken:

There is really nothing “spicy” about it.  In fact, it was too sweet for me.  The waffle itself has a strong malty flavor that’s only exacerbated by the sweet sauce on the chicken.  It’s a healthy size piece of chicken, but you don’t really notice it just because there’s so much waffle going on.  It would be nice if the sauce was spicy enough to complement the sweetness of the waffle.  But it’s probably another case of Disney being wary of creating something that could possibly be offensive to our McDonalds’ palettes.  On the plus side, it really is a ton of food.  I’m not sure you can get anything as heavy as this at Disney World for about seven bucks.  I ended up throwing about a quarter of the waffle away because it was just too much.  The coleslaw sitting underneath the arugula that’s pictured didn’t do much to add anything positive either.  It’s too bad because this could be a run away winner.

Ham, Prosciutto, and Swiss:

Cell phone pics!  Sorry they aren’t Instagram.  This was a ton of food for $7.19, but the flavor wasn’t “all that.”  You’ve got the waffle, which may or may not be purposefully cooled, along with cold sandwich toppings.  Whatever sauce that was slathered on didn’t accompany the flavors of the “prosciutto” or “ham” well either, in my opinion.  Still, these sandwiches are definitely a little different and not a bad value for the money.  It’s a lot bigger than it looks.

Ham and Cheese Omelet Waffle Sandwich:

These are actually really good, particularly if you like tomatoes as there are two thick slices on top along with some prosciutto and an egg pocket omelet thing. The waffle again dominates, but it is a breakfast food after all!

Presidential Sweet:

This is nearly identical to the delicious American Dream at Fife and Drum Tavern at Epcot, only bigger. Refreshing and delicious, this may be my favorite snack at Magic Kingdom.

Seating:

Sleepy Hollow has seating that lines a wall overlooking Cinderella Castle and the Hub and covered seating to the side of the building.

If you time your snack or meal during a Dream Along with Mickey show in front of Cinderella Castle,

We always grab a snack here and watch (or at least listen) to the Dream Along with Mickey Show

I got my three year old twins a plain waffle here with maple syrup, and the waffle was delicious! They loved it.

I got the nutella and strawberry waffle at night when we were there in February 2013. Not sure if that has changed since then but I will find out next month! It was an awesome combination.
