Welcome back little Orange Bird :-) I've missed you!! Glad to hear that the citrus swirls can be found again. They were my favorite Disney treat as a kid -- way better than the Mickey ears on a stick! Wish I could go to WDW now, I'd buy two :-)

Not being as much of a Disney aficionado as many here, I had no familiarity with the Citrus Swirl. That sounds verrrry appealing and interesting to me. Would you happen to know if they use fresh-squeezed OJ? I wouldn't take that as a given..keeping their costs down is often paramount, and even in California/Florida, fresh-squeezed is more expensive. I'll pay extra for it here when I hit a Wegmans..hard to find fresh squeezed OJ in NJ no matter the time of year!

I love the Citrus swirl. It's much better than the Dole Whip. Hope it's still there when we go in DEC.

Interestingly enough, even my local park, Worlds of Fun, is opening a waffle sandwich place this season. I am sure their offerings will be lousy and overpriced, but hey, at least they try. Sort of.

I never knew this existed. Being a Dole Whip fan, I never ventured over there. I'm trying this new treat this weekend!

A chicken and waffle sandwich? Never heard of it. Must not have migrated north to Ohio yet.

There should be a Roscoe's at DCA! That's a staple of SoCal.

I think I've seen that orange bird before...Either way, it sounds like a cool alternative to the popular dole whip.

^^^Really? Never heard of Roscoe's. And I've lived in SoCal for 52 years.

Hey Mark,

Roscoe's has a few locations in the LA area, but it's very popular. They are known for their chicken & waffles.

It's listed in various tourist guides (like Pinks). It's popular with celebs & the President even ate there on one of his most recent visits.

I didn't know about the Pasedena location that Robert was talking about, but I think it would be cool to have at DCA!

I was exiting HOP recently and thought I saw waffles in the window. The group I was with were hot footin' it to Main Street for the MSEP, so I didn't have time to investigate but I will soon.

I've been hoping Chic-Fil-A would jump on the Chicken and Waffles idea and offer a breakfast sandwich with mini waffles aound their amazing chicken. McDonald's has that freakey McGriddles thing (actualy rather tasty, it just looks strange) so this seems like low hanging fruit.

I've gotten on a waffle kick the last year or so...gotta pick some up on my way home tonight..Aunt Jemima 88 cents at Shop-Rite, baby! But I don't believe I've ever seen..much less had..a chicken/waffle sandwich. As I mentioned above regarding the Citrus Twist, this also holds some appeal for me.

I ate the ham, prosciutto and swiss waffle for lunch in October. I eat chicken this or that everywhere else so I wanted a change. It was quite good and a nice change. The size was large enough for 2 to share and both be satisfied. The only problem I had was the disorganized ordering and pick-up system. The window area is small and they get quite a back-up in orders and you really need to stay close to hear your number being called out.
