REVIEW: We Tried the NEW Annual Passholder-Exclusive Treat in EPCOT!

There’s a NEW treat in EPCOT right now, but it’s ONLY for a select group of people.


Starting on January 29th, Disney World Annual Passholders can get an exclusive treat at Connections Café in EPCOT. We headed in to try it out, and now we’ve got a full review for you!

The Hei Hei Liege Waffle is a new Passholder-exclusive treat at Connections Café!

Connections Cafe & Eatery in EPCOT

Connections Café is the Starbucks location in EPCOT’s World Celebration area, and it’s attached to the Connections Eatery quick service restaurant.

Entering Connections Cafe

The Hei Hei Liege Waffle is made with brioche dough, and it’s topped with pearl sugar, a colorful chocolate drizzle, and a Hei Hei white chocolate medallion. You can grab one for $4.19.

Here it is!

The first thing you’ll notice about this treat is how stinkin’ cute it is! Who WOULDN’T want a waffle with Hei Hei on the front?!

So cute!

The next thing you’ll notice is that the Hei Hei Waffle is COVERED in sugar. Seriously, this is a kid’s DREAM come true. With all the sugar and icing on top, it reminded us more of a donut than a waffle, even though Liege waffles are traditionally coated in a sugar crust. This one was EXTRA sugary.

EXTRA sugary

Since it’s so sweet, we’d recommend splitting the Hei Hei waffle with a friend. If you don’t have a pretty big sweet tooth, you might want to skip this one altogether! Although it’s super pretty (and probably great for your Insta feed), it can be a lot with all the sweet additions.

If you want to grab this treat, you need to head to EPCOT soon. It’s only available from now through February 23rd.

Grab it soon!

To purchase the waffle, you will need to present your Annual Pass ID from the Tickets and Passes section of your My Disney Experience app, along with a valid government-issued ID.

This treat isn’t the only Hei Hei-themed Annual Passholder offering in EPCOT right now. Over at the Creations Shop (also located in World Celebration in EPCOT), Passholders can now pick up their Hei Hei magnet!
