We love to binge scary movies, plan a costume, and eat pumpkin everything when it hits Halloween time.
And, all the ridiculously good treats that materialize in Disney World win us over every year with their creativity (even the RICE KRISPIES are good, you guys)! This Halloween, though, is looking different than any other spooky season we’ve seen before with modified festivities and experiences in the parks.
But, we can say the one thing that hasn’t changed is just how good all the Halloween snacks are in the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. It’s been a tough pick narrowing things down to our favorites so far. Still, we think that these 5 treats are a must-have this Fall if you’re heading to Disney World!
Here’s a look at our top picks for this year’s Halloween goodies!
Is it really Halloween in Disney World if Pumpkin Fudge doesn’t show up in the parks? We were getting a little worried when it started getting further and further into September with no sign of the yearly treat. But, we spotted the first sign of Pumpkin Fudge over at Zuri’s Sweets Shop in Disney’s Animal Kingdom (and thank goodness for that).
While we were in the Magic Kingdom next, it also made its way over to the Main Street Confectionery so guests can indulge in every bite as they listen to the Cadaver Dans sing spooky tunes.
You might think that Pumpkin Fudge is yet another pumpkin spice treat. But, oh, it’s so much more than that! There is a slight hint of spice in the fudge, but it’s mostly pumpkin flavored. It almost tastes like you’re eating a VERY rich and dense piece of pumpkin pie, but somehow even better.
Needless to say, this is definitely one of our favorite treats to get during the Halloween season in Disney World.
Disney’s Riviera Resort takes guests on a little European getaway without leaving the Disney World property. So, basically, we have had high hopes for the Halloween treats coming to Le Petit Cafe. And, the Pumpkin Mousse outdid all of our expectations!
The mousse already looks gorgeous with its perfect shape and orange color. But, the flavor BLEW us away! The pumpkin mousse is made with pumpkin cheesecake and an autumn-spiced sable. The inside is rich, creamy, and flavorful with the pumpkin, while the pumpkin mousse on top adds a nice finish.
However, the part that threw us for a loop was that the sable cookie on the bottom was so ginger-y, it almost reminded us of a gingerbread cookie! (Umm, Is this Christmas or Halloween?)
The combination of flavors made us love the Pumpkin Mousse even more since the crunch from the cookie and creaminess from the cheesecake and mousse were practically perfect in every way together.
Caramel Cauldron Cupcake
We’re hopping over to another set of Disney Resorts for the next treat on our list. Unlike the Pumpkin Mousse, you can find the Caramel Cauldron Cupcake at multiple locations in Disney World, including the Artist’s Palette at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort, Good’s Food to Go at Disney’s Old Key West Resort, and Conch Flats General Store at Old Key West.
The adorable treat that looks just like a witch’s brew is a chocolate cupcake filled with salted caramel buttercream and sauce, chocolate flames and a witch’s broom, and little crispy pearls. The caramel was sweet and salty, which happened to be the best pairing possible for all that rich chocolate cake. Each bite was packed with flavor and made us want a whole batch of the Caramel Cauldron Cupcakes to ourselves!
You might want to grab your broom and hurry on over to the Disney Resorts since this baby is only available through November 1st!
Pumpkin Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich
If you thought we were done talking about pumpkin treats, you couldn’t be more wrong! The Pumpkin Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich has made its valiant return yet another year over at L’Artisan des Glaces in EPCOT’s France Pavilion. And, wow, is she a BEAUT!
The crispy pumpkin spice macarons are layered with a creamy pumpkin spice ice cream that just nail those fall flavors we know and love.
If you’re looking for a cool treat as you explore the World Showcase, you’re going to want one (or two) of these ice cream sandwiches to take with you!
Pumpkin Spice Mickey Waffle Sundae
Last (but certainly not least), we couldn’t forget an all-time fan-favorite, now could we? Disney World loves to add a few twists to its classic treats in the parks, especially when it comes to Mickey Waffles. And, guests visiting the Magic Kingdom are going to want to stop by the Sleepy Hollow for the Pumpkin Spice Mickey Waffle Sundae!
Like the name says, the Mickey Waffles have a spice flavor that’s a perfect treat for the season, along with all the vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, whipped cream, and sprinkles on top. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it! 😍
Fall Flavors Cupcake
Since there are so many goodies for Halloween, we can’t help but add an Honorable Mention to the list! Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort has a gorgeous atmosphere, but an even BETTER Fall Flavors Cupcake this year for guests who are big fans of apple pie.
Gasparilla Island Grill has baked up a cinnamon-spiced cupcake with apple filling on the inside and maple buttercream and a sugar pumpkin on the outside. We might be massive fans of pumpkin spice, but the whole pieces of soft and spicy apples on the inside of this cupcake had us SOLD. And, the decorations are just so beautiful that it was almost too pretty to eat (almost).
These might be our top 5 picks for now at Disney World this Halloween, but there’s still an entire month left of new treats, drinks, and other snacks coming soon. And, we’ll be grabbing our stretchy (and witchy) pants to put on since w’re going to try them ALL! Be sure to follow along with us as we take you to the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs this Fall for our Halloween snack crawls!
