Really picky question warning! Is it the ham and cheese croissant or ham and cheese sandwich that DISers rave about getting served warm at the Boulangerie Patisserie? Want to be sure I get it right! :)

Cold or rainy weather? Heated ham & cheese croissant. Yum.

Hot, sticky weather? Cold ham and cheese on long, crusty french bread. Equally yum!

And either way, insane pastry choices for dessert!

I've tried making this at home......some how something's missing. Maybe it's the atmosphere?

It's the napoleon for dessert that would be missing for me!

DD-10 was set to get the croissant a few weeks ago and did so and loved it...but we also discovered another ham and cheese option there that had sort of a French bread pizza feel to it...awesome! So depending how many people might be nibbling on something at the bakery, just go for both! That place may be the best-smelling area in all of WDW!

Clearly I will have to report back! I hope we can make it there at a good time for a meal. I'll just make DH split stuff with me if we're not that hungry.

My DD13 had the cheese (Tartine) last year and loved it! She plans on having at least one again this trip. I had a bite and it was the best french bread pizza I've had. I may just have to have the ham and cheese one myself. ;)

The ham & cheese croissant warmed up completely lives up to the hype! It was soooooo good! Too bad I forgot to ask what kind of cheese it was though! Anyway, highly recommended - and cheap too! :)

I prefer ham/cheese on a baguette. Soooo very yummy. Tastes just like the sandwiches from paris.

For 1 QS credit you can get a sandwich, dessert and drink....OR....2 desserts and a drink. Your choice. I was just there a couple of days ago. Had the lemon tart, wow! delish!

The only cold ham and cheese sandwich I have ever liked did indeed get eaten in Paris.

We don't do the dining plan, so was happy to see decent OOP prices. Had a chocolate mousse too - yum!

The ham and cheese croissant and chocolate mousse are a MUST for us every single trip. DD9 asked that we go twice this trip because it's her favorite meal. I managed to work it in THREE times! Now I can finally try the ham and cheese baguette! I never want to give up the croissant to try the baguette, but now I can have my croissant on the first visit, try the baguette on the second, and have an encore of whichever I want on the third. :cool1:

16 days and counting...Croissants, baguettes, chocolate mousse, and napoleans here I come! :love:

the cheese used is emmental, and mild nutty cheese its easily recognizable as a hard cheese with holes;)
traditionally the croissant should be served warm, enough to make the croissant soft, not hot as to make the edges hard, a real croissant is soft..

the cheese platter is also very good if ur looking for a different cheesy experience...

i would recommend the napoleon or a strawberry tartlets...
i lived in france for a long time, dh and my boys are french citizens and the food is very similar to the stuff you d get in a real boulangerie (except the mickey ears;))

I only vacationed there, but i agree that its very similar to the boulangeries in paris.

Exactly what was on our tray last visit...ham and cheese croissant, cheese platter, Napoleon and strawberry tartlets. I dare to say it was the best meal we had the entire trip, and we were on the dining plan with a TS every day. Can't wait to repeat that exact meal in November...maybe twice.

Thanks for the cheese info! I am usually not a big cheese person; I dislike cheese cold (which is why my love for my "cold" sandwich in Paris surprised me so!)

It sounds like they do a very good job fitting your description; that's how my sandwich was today. DH will try a Napoleon tomorrow then probably; I'm afraid I don't care for strawberries. :(

And I would absolutely eat a baguette plain walking out of IG too! :)

Can't wait to share one of these with DH in a couple of weeks! Yum! What an amazing snack credit!

And yes, we've shared in the past...though maybe not this time. ;) Since you all have me drooling already! I might smack his hand away...
