Mouse and Man – Hand in Hand

wpid1745-SGSBlog_DSC_6284.jpg

Much of the attention goes to the Partners Statue featuring Walt and Mickey in the Magic Kingdom, but the Roy Disney and Minnie Mouse park bench is worth the time to find. Find? Well, the bench moves around throughout the year. Most of the time the bench is located by the flagpole just inside the park entrance, but on this day it was over by the Fire Department to make room for Limited Time Magic’s Long Lost Characters Week.

A Gargoyle Lights the Way to Be Our Guest Resturant

Today I had the opportunity to explore the New Fantasyland with my 5 year old daughter. New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom started to allow guests to experience the new on Friday. Disney is referring to this as a “dress rehearsals” as Cast Member and Passholder previews are on the horizon. The official opening date is December 6, 2012.

This is one of many gargoyles tasked with keeping the bridge illuminated as guest head towards Be Our Guest Restaurant which sits below Beast’s Castle.

Magic Kingdom’s Sleepy Hollow – Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich

Magic Kingdom’s Sleepy Hollow - Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle

I’ve been wanting to check out the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle from Sleepy Hallow after reading the Disney Food Blog’s post back in November 2011.  The chicken breast is covered in a sweet and spicy Asian sauce, and topped with creamy coleslaw and fresh arugula.

 

I was let down with the spicyness of the chicken. I guess what I really wanted was a buffalo chicken waffle sandwich. I felt the sauce was 80% sweet and 20% spicy.  All in all I would order this again and I would love to get a side of the tasty coleslaw!

 

The next time I’m in the park early I am going to stop by and try out the new breakfast ham and cheese omelet waffle sandwich.

This is an example of trying to get something out of a lackluster original photo.

Minnie Mouse lovenly looks over at the Partners Statue featuring Walt and main squeeze Mickey Mouse.

I wish I found a way to get Mickey in the frame.
