Exactly Where To Get Mickey Waffles at Disneyland: ALL Locations


As a Walt Disney World veteran turned Disneyland annual passholder, I was shocked to find out that there are no counter service locations in the Disneyland theme parks selling Mickey waffles. If you want that classic Mickey waffle to start your day the right way, you have to work a little bit harder for it in Disneyland. I searched all over for Mickey waffles at Disneyland on several past trips, and spent hours combing through every online review I could find about these waffles. This article is a summation of all of that (sooo very difficult) research.

In the past I have seen Chip and Dale, Tigger, Pooh, Eeyore, Hook, Fairy Godmother, Max (from A Goofy Movie), and even Rafiki!! Characters here are usually in their regular, day-to-day outfits.

**A side note about mickey waffles here at GCH Craftsman Grill is that it is not specifically listed as Mickey-shaped waffles on the menu like it is at other locations on our list. However, they have always been served Mickey-shaped in my experience here in the past. And my evidence shows them being served Mickey-shaped as recently as January 2020. However, if it is extremely important, like make-or-break your day important, please ask the cast member at GCH before ordering to confirm.

Room Service Mickey Waffles at Disneyland Resort Hotels

If you’re staying at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels, you’re in luck!! You can get Mickey waffles from the Room Service menu at all three of the Disneyland Resort Hotels. When I stayed last summer at the Grand Californian, getting a room service Mickey waffle was at the top of my list of must dos. 

  • What to Order: 
    • $18.00, Mickey-shaped waffle (full size) which is served with a choice of either bananas foster or warm berry sauce (plus syrup). And also comes with a choice of sausage or bacon. 
    • $9.00, Mickey waffles (mini waffles) are from the kids menu, and from my research, they do not include any sides or special sauces – just regular syrup.   

To order a room service mickey waffle, I recommend placing your order on the door handle pamphlet that is delivered to your room each night. You simply fill out what you want to order and then hang it on your door handle before midnight. Then your food is delivered to your room in the morning without you even needing to call.
