20 Spooktacular Disney Halloween Treats to Try This Season
We are so excited for Halloween. We've started thinking about our costumes, pre-ordered almost everything from Target's Halloween collection, already started making all sorts of decorations, and now, we're doing something really important. We're in the process of planning to get to a Disney Resort this season to eat *all the things*. This year, both Disneyland and Disney World have totally upped their foodie game and are offering their own unique spins of classic treats that are irresistible, delightful, and sprinkled with delicious pixie dust. You'll want to book trips to both parks and try them all. Note: Some of these treats are available only during Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, a separately ticketed event, and the goodies at Disneyland won't be available until September 7.
Candy Corn Ice Cream Cone: We love a soft serve, especially when it's a limited- edition, seasonal, and oh-so-delicious soft serve! While that candy corn flavor can be controversial (you either love it or hate it), you can't help but be tempted by this creamy beauty right here. Available at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies at Walt Disney World.
Candy Corn Milkshake: If you can't get enough of candy corn option, then you can also order up the Candy Corn Milkshake. It's also topped with cotton candy and a sweet Mickey-shaped marshmallow. Available at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies at Walt Disney World.
Maleficent Dessert: Pure evil never looked so yummy. In honor of Sleeping Beauty's Maleficent, dive into this lime soft serve presented in a black waffle cone and decorated with purple sugar sprinkles and chocolate horns. Available at Storybook Treats at Walt Disney World.
Minnie Witch Brownie: This new Halloween brownie featuring Minnie Mouse is almost too cute to eat... almost. This densely rich chocolate brownie comes with a white chocolate image of Minnie in her witchy Halloween best. Available at Casey’s Corner at Walt Disney World.
Halloween Cinnamon Roll: Wow, just wow. Now, THIS is a cinnamon roll. Not only is this baked piece of goodness shaped like our pal Mickey, but it's also covered with orange icing and a chocolate spider web. Available at the Main Street Bakery at Walt Disney World.
Oogie Boogie Meringue: It might be inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas, but this dessert is totally dreamy. The pomegranate-cherry gelée is topped with glow-in-the-dark meringue and finished off with yummy gummy worms. Oh, and it's gluten free! Available at Gaston’s Tavern on party nights only at Walt Disney World.
Not-So-Poison Apple Cupcake: As a tribute to Snow White, the bakers at the Magic Kingdom have created the eye-catching Not-So-Poison Apple Cupcake. The spiced "apple" cupcake has pecan crunch and layers of buttercream. Available at the Main Street Bakery at Walt Disney World.
Hitchhiking Ghost Dessert: OMG, OMG, OMG. As fans of the Haunted Mansion, we can't get over the adorableness of the Hitchhiking Ghosts in an edible Doom Buggy. This masterpiece is crafted from a cream puff filled with cookies and cream mousse and finished with a chocolate piece featuring Gus, Ezra, and Phineas (AKA the Hitchhiking Ghosts). Available at Aloha Isle on party nights only at Walt Disney World.
Madame Leota Dessert: The Haunted Mansion cavalcade of awesome desserts doesn't stop with ghosts in a Doom Buggy: There's also this beautifully executed treat named for the mysterious fortune teller. It's a vanilla tart shell that's filled with toasted marshmallow pastry crème and then topped with crispy pearls, chocolate, and a hard candy garnish. Available at the Liberty Square Market party nights only at Walt Disney World.
Jack Skellington Cake Push Pop: A push pop always reminds of us being a kid. This Jack Skellington Cake Push Pop is creepy yet cool, and best of all, it's delicious. It comes layered with chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream, white and dark chocolate crispy pearls, and dark chocolate curls. Perched above the whole shebang is a white chocolate Jack Skellington figure. Available at Sleepy Hollow party nights only at Walt Disney World.
Worms & Dirt: We gravely want to dig into one of these. This weirdly whimsical treat features chocolate pudding with gluten-friendly cake crumbs, gummy worms, and a chocolate gravestone. Available at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café on party nights only; available daily starting October 1 at Walt Disney World.
Mickey Mouse Bread: While it's not really a sweet, most of us think of gobbling up any kind of bread as a treat, especially when it's an adorable Mickey Mouse as a vampire loaf. The bakers at Boudin Bakery continue to wow us with their creations (we'll never forget that awesome Groot bread). Available at the Pacific Wharf Café at Disney California Adventure.
Main Street Mickey’s Pound Cake: We don't know about you, but don't you think that all pound cakes should be as cute as this one? This Mickey cake is filled with blueberry compote and cookie crumbles and is served with orange whipped cream ears. Available at the Plaza Inn Restaurant at Disneyland.
Mummy Croissant Donut: Disney's donut game has been strong lately, and this is no exception. This purple-hued mummy donut bar is filled with peanut butter and jelly. Available at Schmoozies in Disney California Adventure.
Pumpkin Spice Funnel Cakes Fries: Yes, funnel fries. These beautiful sticks of sweetness are dusted with pumpkin spice sugar, pumpkin spice sauce, and pumpkin spice whipped cream. You'll need to wait to get these, though; they won't debut at Award Wieners in Disney California Adventure until mid-September.
Spider Silk Macaron Sandwich: This is the most goth macaron ever, and we're not mad about it. The black macaron is filled with charcoal-tart cherry spun ice cream and is adorned with popping candy and raspberry sauce. Available at Clarabelle’s Hand Scooped Ice Cream in Disney California Adventure.
Candy Cone Pie: How cute are these? Flo’s V8 Café in the Cars Land section of Disney California Adventure always offers up some sort of original pie creation, and they made an extra-sweet one for this Halloween. This beauty is a cream pie with vanilla, butterscotch, and white chocolate pudding topped with a candy corn garnish.
Candy Corn Churro: This year will see the triumphant return of the Orange Sugar Churro with Candy Corn Sauce, a sugary piece of churro heaven with a unique Halloween spin. Available at Churros near Big Thunder Mountain in Disneyland.
More Halloween Churros: Disneyland is making sure all of us churro lovers are covered. Right by the Haunted Mansion, you can feast on the Pumpkin Spice Churro with Cream Cheese Frosting. At the Hungry Bear Restaurant, they'll be serving up the Churro Bites Cereal Sundae (with fruit cereal-dusted churros, cereal milk anglaise, strawberry ice cream, and raspberry sauce). The Golden Horseshoe is scooping up a Churro Sundae with cookie butter gelato topped with a cinnamon sugar-dusted churro, cajeta, and whipped cream. Aptly located by Sleeping Beauty Castle, you'll find the Maleficent Churro covered with chocolate cookie crumbles blended with purple sugar (add marshmallow dip for even more sugar). And at the churro stand near Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, you can get the tart Sour Apple Churro (with the option to add caramel sauce).
Yes, Even More Halloween Churros at California Adventure: California Adventure also gets into the churro game. Willie’s Churros serves up the festive Purple, Green, and Orange Sugar Churro as well as the Pumpkin Spice Churro. Churros near Redwood Creek Challenge Trail will sell the S’mores Churro with graham cracker, chocolate chips, and marshmallow sauce. The Purple Sugar Churro at Goofy's Sky School is simple yet satisfying. And check out the Cozy Cone Motel for their own take on the Pumpkin Spice Churro with Cream Cheese Dipping Sauce.
