Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida or the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California provides endless magic for families in the form of Disney Park attractions, resort experiences and activities, and of course food. Dining at Disney is often one of my favorite parts of a Disney vacation, and one of the items I must order at least once on every trip to the most magical place on Earth is a Mickey waffle.
Eating Mickey waffles has become a ritual for most families who visit the Disney Parks. I have been enjoying Mickey waffles since I was a kid (some of my favorite memories include eating these waffles with character breakfast at 1900 Park Fare, Chef Mickey’s, Chef Goofy’s, or O’hana) and I often find myself craving these sweet, fluffy, Mickey-Mouse-shaped confections when I return home from a Disney vacation. While many recipes at Disney are a mystery, this one can be recreated at home with ease. Even kids will find this process simple to follow (with adult supervision of course).
In short, recreating Mickey waffles at home requires only two items.
Golden Malted Waffle and Pancake Flour
To produce such large quantities of Mickey waffles every single day, Disney does not make their own batter but actually uses Carbon’s Golden Malted Original Pancake & Waffle Flour. The recipe calls to mix 1 cup of this flour with 1 egg, 5 ounces of water, and 2 tablespoons of melted butter. That’s it! That’s all it takes to prepare the batter for these magical Mickey waffles.

Mickey Waffle Maker
Of course, batter is just one part of the equation. The second part is getting the right shape. Thankfully, Disney sells a mini Mickey waffle maker on Amazon as well. Simply pour the batter into the machine and follow the instructions for how long to cook your waffles. In just a few minutes, you should have your very own Mickey waffles right at home!
