This is Never to be Shared with My Dad

So, I was playing the 20 Question Disney Style. And used Mickey Waffle and it came up as an answer. Which to me is really funny. So, I'd figure I'd share this story with you.

Now we have this huge inside family joke about Mickey Waffles, with I believe strawberries and ice cream. They were supposedly sold in Disney MGM Studio which is now DHS. I believe the year they disappeared was the year they changed the name.

Supposedly there was this place in between where the fountains/water around where the green dinosaur was that sold these mysterious dessert waffles if you will.My first trip to Disney was in July/August 1997 and my last was Chrsitmas 2004 over these years my dad ate these "waffles" everytime we went on Star Tours up until our last trip that is. We spent 24 of 25 trips hearing they exist, for at least half my mom didn't believe they existed either until one day she didn't want to go on star tours....let me say that from that day on she rode less often. Once my dad even kept the reciept to "prove there are mickey waffles."

Let's just back up a bit. I am 100% aware that if you get breakfast in disney you can get Mickey Waffle. In fact I've had a breakfast mickey waffle. But supposidly these are bigger and you get toppings on it and all this stuff.

So, on our last trip to disney my dad like fine I'll take you guys to get a mickey waffle so your stop saying I'm lying. Conveniently they had disappeared. So, to this day as far as I'm concerned the Mickey Waffle Stand does not exist.

Now I've been doing some research...and so far I've only found these reference to the Mickey Waffle...

"One snack you must have above all is a Mickey shaped Belgium waffle which can be found at any buffet or breakfast place. " Joe T.

But that says buffet or breakfast so obviously it's not my daddy's waffle.

"The Sleepy Hollow stand, tucked in a corner in Liberty Square, has funnel cakes and Mickey waffles, two guilty pleasures."

That's in Magic Kingdom. And, this was specifically MGM.

"I’ve always got to get a waffle from norway at EPCOT. warm waffles with strawberry jam. instant sugar coma, but so worth it."

That's in Epcot.

So, as of right now I'm STILL convinced there are no mickey waffles in MGM.

P.S. Good luck to everyone on there interview and application for the Fall 2010 Disney College Program I hope we all get in and have a great time.
