Although it still feels like Summer here in California, Fall has arrived and Disneyland is ready with some fun Fall and Halloween Treats!
The Jack Skellington Popcorn Container has returned to Disneyland just in time for Haunted Mansion Holiday; and Pumpkin Beignets are back at the Mint Julep Bar!
Let’s take a look!
Jack Skellington Popcorn Container in Disneyland
A super fun Halloween item has returned to Disneyland this season; the Jack Skellington Popcorn Coffin!
Available at the popcorn cart outside of the French Market near the Haunted Mansion Holiday, the coffin is served up overflowing with popcorn for just $12.
The reason I say “just” is the fact that you get to take home an awesome Halloween decoration to keep forever and ever!
The coffin comes with a handle and snap closure making it easy to carry around the park. It’s also decorated with fun Nightmare Before Christmas graphics molded into the plastic.
I bought one for my household and plan to bring it out every year. It makes a great display item. Close it up and set it on a shelf, or keep it open and fill it with candy. I’m actually considering getting a few more to use at parties. It would make a great utensil holder!
Best part? The popcorn is hand-made by Oogie Boogie himself!
Disneyland Pumpkin Beignets
This week I also stopped by The Mint Julep Bar — located behind the French Market near the New Orleans Square Station — to find that Pumpkin Beignets are back! (We’ll have to add this to our Disneyland Pumpkin Treats Crawl!)
The Pumpkin Beignets are not on the menu yet, so I asked about them. Not only did the kind cast member tell me that they would be available this season, he told me I could order them today!
Mickey Pumpkin Beignets are the same cost as regular Mickey Beignets. You can get 3 for $3.99 or 6 for $6.99.
I had two friends with me, so an order of three was perfect. Beignets are made to order, so it does take a few minutes to get them.
I’d say we waited about 5 minutes for the fresh batch that was served up piping hot in a paper bag filled with powdered sugar.
The Pumpkin Beignets smell delicious upon opening up the bag. The first thing I noticed was the all-spice type pumpkin scent.
I distributed them and tasting we went.
I love beignets, so I was really hoping to love these pumpkin ones too. They were fantastic, but I didn’t think they were pumpkin-y enough.
You do get the pumpkin aftertaste a bit and they smell great, but I did have a hard time distinguishing them from the regular Mickey Beignets. A little different, but not that much.
Anyhow, either way, smothered with powdered sugar, Mickey Beignets are a great treat to share (or eat them all yourself!).
You can see by the orange color that they do look different than a regular beignet, but honestly the taste is not a whole lot different.
