Although no specific plan was disclosed, it is easy to see a link between these ideas and the decision.
The good news is that the Disneyland Paris lack of Mickey Mouse waffles isn’t a permanent issue. The decision has been made to move the waffles to a new location. They’ll be back next week, though it’s unknown where.
