Halloween Goodies at Disney Parks — What Are Your Favorites?

DFB is getting into the Halloween Spirit sharing tons of fun, spooky treats! We love this time of year when Halloween goodies materialize inside the candy shops, bakeries, and quick-service locations around the Disney Parks.

A few weeks ago, we highlighted the Pumpkin Beignets and Jack Skellington Popcorn Containers in Disneyland!

Let’s take a peek at some more of our favorites! Let us know in the comments below what you’re top choices are!

Of course, we can’t pass up taste-testing some of the seasonal fudge selections at the Confectionery on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom. Here’s this year’s Pumpkin Fudge!

And there’s always room for Disney cupcakes – especially when they are seasonally themed!

Don’t settle for plain Candy Corn. Get a candy corn cupcake for super sweetness.

    I don’t like sweets that much and there is really nothing on this page I would eat, but I so admire the creativity of the Disney folks when I see the beautiful looking treats.

  2. Miranda says:

    I love the look of that Mickey pumpkin cookie and I always love Disney’s sugar cookies with the little mickey sprinkles!

    I know most DFB readers will know this, but what is Candy Corn? We don’t have it here in the UK. I see from a quick google it’s a sweet candy made in the shape of corn, but what is it like? Is it a soft, gummy candy like the jelly worms? Or marshmallow? Or more like a hard caramel or toffee? Does it taste like popcorm or just sugar? I love popcorn (particularly Disney’s!) and am wondering if I am missing out :-)

    Disney are so inventive with their seasonal food. One more reason why it’s the happiest place on earth!

  3. Alexa says:

    I love any and all of the sugar cookie creations!! Sooo good :)

  4. Katie says:

    Where did you spot the glowing mickey ghost lantern? I am headed there in a few days and would like to pick that up

  5. Jenni says:

    We were at Disney World last week and we had dinner at Tony’s Town Square. I had the pumpkin cheesecake for dessert and it was awesome. It was like eating an airy version of pumpkin pie. I wish I could make it at home for Thanksgiving. I saw a lot of cute Halloween snacks while we were there, and even sampled a few,but the pumpkin cheesecake was by far the best dessert I had all week (at ten sit down restaurants). I will have to stop in just for dessert next year to see if they have it again!

  6. Bryan Irrera says:

    um..re: friendlier version of the apple from Sleeping Beauty. I think you mean Snow White!

  7. Sara says:

    Does the pumpkin fudge stick around for all the holidays (i.e. Thanksgiving & Christmas) or just Halloween?

  8. Elizabeth says:

    @Miranda – Candy corn tastes like straight sugar pretty much! It is not chewy like gummy worms or caramel. It is firm and dense, but not brittle.

    Not sure if that cleared anything up! Ha!

  9. Elizabeth says:

    @Miranda – Just thought of something you might compare candy corn to…it’s similar to marzipan, but without the almond flavoring.

  10. Brenda says:

    Definitely the cupcakes and the apples! I love seeing all the Halloween varieties but now looking at the post, I want to add the cookies, rice crispy treats, candies…ok, all of is my favorite :) Maybe it is just a Halloween thing??

  11. Wendy says:

    Are those drink cups just the paper cup used in quick service places right now? Or are they plastic and for purchase? Super cute! Can’t wait to get some Halloween treats when I’m there in 5 DAYS!!!! Woohoo!

  12. CanadiansLoveWDW says:

    i want pumpkin fudge….

  13. Janie Cowan says:

    Where in Hollywood Studios can I find those Minnie Carrot Cake Cupcakes?

  14. Gaylin says:

    Pumpkin Fudge!!!

    It is so awesome.

  15. Essie says:

    I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this and if not, just erase it and please forgive me. Anyway, for the reader who loved Tony’s pumpkin cheesecake, checkout on your computer for, ‘Paula Deen’s Pumpkin Cheesecake’ recipe; it is heavenly and not difficult to make at all! I made it last year and it was an absolute hit for the holidays.
    For Miranda, the candy corn is a type of candy referred to as ‘butter cream’ candy, but I suspect that it is made with less ‘butter’ than it used to be.
    I love all of these ‘Treat’ articles; they’re absolutely ‘delicious fun’ to read and have photos to enjoy and savor, but they have no calories! Thank you, everyday I look forward to my daily treat!

    Almost 20 years ago, I took some candy corn with me on a trip to the UK as a little gift, where it was treated as quite a novelty. Surprised that it still hasn’t jumped the pond! Its texture is soft, smooth, and a little waxy–a bit similar to very firm fudge. The taste is very, very sweet and simple. I always think it tastes like honey, but it’s actually just corn syrup and vanilla, from what I’ve read. Sometimes you’ll get a variation where the different colors are different flavors, typically a chocolatey flavor (think Tootsie Roll) for the darkest color, and basic vanilla flavor for the white. I don’t think most people eat more than 1 or 2 pieces (or maybe that’s just me), but it’s traditional this time of year.

  17. Kelly says:

    We had the Minnie Carrot Cake cupcakes at Starring Rolls in Hollywood Studios…on the same day that we also ate a Butterfinger cupcake AND a peanut butter chocolate cupcake from there as well…it was a good day :)

  18. Miranda says:

    Thank you so much to Elizabeth, Essie and Marianne for trying to help give me an idea of what candy corn is! DH and I are trying to save up for a WDW vacation next October, so hopefully I will get a chance to try some then. Thank you!
