Hello again Ratketeers! It's been a long time. I've been M.I.A. for a while now working on the eBook. A thousand apologies for keeping you guys hanging like that, but I am back and the eBook has been published. It's called Value Meals in Tokyo Disneyland and you can find it on Kindle, Amazon. Here's a direct link to it. I wanted to make the eBook free of charge, but Amazon will not allow it. It's priced at $0.99, but I am able to make it free for a limited period of time, so do sign up for our mailing list at the end of this blog post and I will keep you updated on the dates to download it for free! Why pay when you can get it for free?! That's the Honorable Rat way. Now that I am done with plugging the eBook, it's time to get back to this blog post. Today, we will be devouring Mickey's doughy face at the Great American Waffle Company in Tokyo Disneyland.
Great American Waffle Company serves up one of the most photogenic food in all of Tokyo Disney. Waffles shaped like the head honcho's face. It's one of the more popular places to dine in as you might have expected. It's one of those "Kawaii" food. Grab yourself a waffle, take a seat and count how many times you hear the word "Kawaii" by the time you finish your waffle. If it's less than 10, you should count yourself lucky. That would mean that the park is not so crowded. Pooh's Hunny Hunt should have a wait time of less than an hour. Run for it!
Just for fun, one day, I would love to do more research on this "Kawaii" phenomenon. Maybe publish another book in the future and rank food based on the amount of "Kawaii" points it gets. Which food item do you think will get the most points? Leave a comment below. This should be interesting.
Great American Waffle Company serves up 4 types of waffles and the Mini Waffles. We've got Maple Sauce, Chocolate Sauce, Strawberry & Custard Sauces and Seasonal. My personal favorite here is Maple Sauce. Damn, that's a boring choice! Well, it's the most affordable waffle on the board and time tested. There you have it. I'm cheap and boring. Bite me! Wait! Why bite me when you can chew on Mickey's doughy face? I can guarantee that the waffles are more delicious than your Honorable Rat. Maple and waffles are like Siegfried and Roy. They are meant to be together. Bite on that!
Great American Waffle Company provides both indoor and outdoor seating. On a nice day, I prefer sitting outside. Great American Waffle Company is directly across from the Pirates of the Caribbean show building. The atmosphere is quite nice and it's a great place to people watch. This dining establishment is almost always packed, so plan your visit accordingly. I have found it to be the least busy during mid-afternoon and at night. More often than not, tables were available when I visited during those times. One of my favorite ways to end my day at Tokyo Disneyland is to get a plate of Mickey Waffle, find a bench near the Partners Statue and watch the fireworks while I slowly chew on Mickey's delectable face.
Overall, Great American Waffle Company provides great value. It's tasty, affordable and "Kawaii". There! I said it! It's "Kawaii". I don't usually throw that word around like a lot of Japanese ladies do, but credit should be given when it is due. By the way, I've found that the Strawberry & Custard Sauces Waffle gets the most "Kawaii" points. I don't know why, but I'm gonna take a wild guess. It could be that when you mix the the sauces together, you'll get a pink sauce and anything pink in Japan is "Kawaii". That's my reasoning, for now. To give you a more definitive answer, your Honorable Rat will have to do more research. Ratketeers, it's great to be back!
Honorable Rating: Mmm, this is good. (4/5)
