What’s It Taste Like?
The Ham and Cheese Quiche tastes exactly as its described. You bite in and your mouth fills with the salty, savory taste of ham. The eggs are moist and fluffy, and the cheese has that nice cheddar tang to it.
The pastry is absolutely delicious. Living up to their name, the Jolly Holiday Bakery does not disappoint. I’m not usually big on the pastry part of a quiche or pot pie, but in this case I think it’s the best part of the dish. It is light, flaky, and delightfully buttery.
Is It Easy To Eat?
In my opinion this is a fork and knife dish, but, if you have the skills, you might be able to walk while taking bites. I’d save yourself the effort and enjoy a nice sit down. We had the same wax paper problem here as with the Harbour Galley baked potatoes and Breakfast Burritos from Tomorrowland Terrace, so I recommend removing the paper and eating off the plate to save yourself from the chunks of paper that may end up in your forkfuls.
The Ham & Cheese Quiche does break down into nicely bite-able chunks, so it’s a quick easy meal. Along with the side salad, you can get by forking away, or picking up little pieces with your fingers, but keep some napkins handy.

If you have your little one seated securely, the Ham & Cheese Quiche can be a very good option for mealtime. The ingredients are a hit, with the always popular egg and pastry crust. The cheese and ham are also usually well received so all-in-all we’ve got a winner.
Breaking the quiche down into bite-able chunks is easy to do with a fork and then you can spoon-feed or offer bits to your toddler, or let them feed themselves without too much mess. There will be more crumbling so keep that in mind, but in general this messiness quotient is controllable.
The appeal of the salad will depend on your little one’s tastes. If they like cranberries, there are some on the top, and the cherry tomatoes are actually quite sweet, if your kid goes for veggies.

Like the Caprese on Focaccia Bread, the quiche perfectly fits the theme of both Main Street USA and the world of Mary Poppins around the Jolly Holiday. You can see the Banks family politely consuming this savory dish and making indifferent, disinterested conversation.
The value of this dish is great too. Compared to the Jolly Holiday Combo, another simple meal served at the same restaurant, the quiche is almost two dollars cheaper for almost the same amount of food! If you’re looking to fill up on warm, savory comfort food, this is the perfect entree.
The Ham & Cheese Quiche is a light, enjoyable meal, served in an ideal location to enjoy a pleasant moment of rest while you can still feel connected to the hum and buzz of the park.
