A Snack Bar Saga

As you probably know if you follow along, we went to Disneyland Paris. The rides and stuff were fun, just as they should be, but the food service was really bad.

In Fantasyland, there is a fake windmill with a snack bar in it. As far as I know, they normally sell pre-made ice cream, but since we were there around Christmas, they had special holiday stuff. The service is probably pretty good in the summer when the only need to grab items out of a freezer, but in the winter it is a completely different story.

In the festive season, they sell hot chocolate, which is normal except for the fact that there are a million different flavors and combinations that you can choose from. So when someone orders one it takes an hour and a half for them to finish it.

They also have waffles that don’t have any combinations but still take forever to make. First, they have to get the mix and then they have to pour it into the waffle maker. Next, they have to wait for a while and flip the waffle maker over. When it is done, they make all of the edges perfect and finally dump a handful of powdered sugar on top of it. That takes five minutes per waffle. At least they have more than one waffle machine.

One time when we went to the waffle place we waited in line for at least twenty minutes. It is not like there were a lot of people in front of us, there was about 4. I would be OK with it taking 20 minutes if there were about 30 people in front of us but no there were only 4. When we finally get to the front of the line we ask for a couple of waffles and they said that they were all out of the mix. Then Nate got mad because we waited for a while in the cold. Luckily, as we were about to walk away,  someone came running over with a refill of batter for the machine and then we got our waffles.

These people need to get their act together.

Ha! It occurs to me that maybe the French, who are known for their cuisine, are not that concerned about food prep speed, but more about the delicious finished product (?) Hope the waffles were worth the wait!


They were just not good at there job. There was another stand with one person at it and it took half the time.
