While Disney World remains closed for the time being, here's how you can have a virtual day there during lockdown.

The team at retailer Bella Baby have created this fun day out from home - from downloading your ticket to Disney World to watching the Festival of Fantasy Parade and making Mickey Mouse waffles.

Best of all, it's completely free.

  • How to make ten of your own Mickey Mouse Waffles 


- Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker


- 2 cups all-purpose flour

- 3/4 cup granulated sugar

- 3 teaspoons baking powder

- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

- 2 large eggs whites and yolks separated

- 1 cup buttermilk

- 1/2 cup milk I used skim

- 1 cup unsalted butter melted

- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

- Classic Buttermilk Syrup from the Picky Palate Cookbook

- 1 stick unsalted butter

- 1/2 cup granulated sugar

- 1/2 cup buttermilk

- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat waffle iron.
  2. Place flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl, stir to combine.
  3. Place egg whites into a medium mixing bowl, whisk continuously until stiff peaks form.
  4. Place buttermilk, milk, melted butter, vanilla and egg yolks into a large bowl, whisk to combine then slowly stir into dry ingredients. Once combined, fold in egg whites until just combined.
  5. Spoon batter into each Mickey shape filling close to top. Close lid and let cook until golden brown and crisp, about 1 1/2-2 minutes depending on the heat setting of your waffle iron. Remove hot waffles and place on cooling rack. Continue cooking waffles until all batter is used.
  6. To prepare buttermilk syrup, place butter, sugar and buttermilk into a small saucepan. Stir until melted and comes to a low boil. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and vanilla. Syrup will foam up. Let sit aside and stir occasionally until foam has gone down.
  7. To serve, place waffles onto serving plates, top with fruit of choice and drizzle with warm buttermilk syrup.
