Dining in Disneyland: A Quick Peek at Halloween Treats

Halloween time has arrived at the Disneyland Resort, and the treats (especially the pumpkin ones) are calling my name! 

Familiar Pumpkin Faces at Halloween Time!

I found a handful of fun items that I felt needed to be shared immediately so that your Halloween snacking could be planned accordingly.

Please note that we will be posting some in depth reviews of some of these treats, but for now, here’s a mini sampling…

Let’s not save the best for last.

Pumpkin Fritters, Gingerbread Cookies, and Pumpkin Latte

These gems can be found in Disneyland at the Royal Street Veranda. They have REAL pumpkin chunks in them and are fried to perfection.  They come with a creamy custard dipping sauce.

The Royal Street Veranda also features a Pumpkin Latte
The Pumpkin Latte is flavorful but not at all artificial tasting.

A perfect treat to keep you warm, if it ever cools down here in Southern California!

AND Spooky Kooky Gingerbread Cookies
Soft, chewy and ginger-bready, with a Halloween twist!

These can also be purchased at the Mint Julep Bar.

Mickey Ghost Marshmallow Cones

Trolley Treats at Disney California Adventure had these adorable grim grinning Mickey Ghost Marshmallow Cones in their window.

Pumpkin Flan and Halloween Demitasse Desserts

Over at Rancho del Zocalo we have something new and fabulous, Pumpkin Flan!

Rancho del Zocalo is also featuring this year’s Demitasse Dessert: Pumpkin or Chocolate Mousse served in a fun Minnie Mouse Jack o’ Lantern mug.  It’s garnished with chocolate shavings and a candy corn.

Halloween Cake Pops

More creative goodness from the cake pop team at the Disneyland Resort! This year, Halloween brings us Mickey Mummies, Jack Skellington, Mickey Jack o’ Lanterns, and giant spiders with gummy worm legs.

I’ve spotted them at Marceline’s in Downtown Disney as well as Candy Palace & Pooh Corner in Disneyland.  My guess is that Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure is also carrying them.

Also available at Marceline’s, Candy Palace, Pooh Corner & Trolley Treats are the ever popular…

Seasonal Dipped Pretzel Rods & Marshmallow Wands, and Specialty Cupcakes

These treats are pretty standard seasonal goodies (the sprinkles change for each season), but they’re still worth trying!

Specialty Cupcakes (Can someone please tell me what in the world the orange ones in the bottom right are supposed to be?)

Pumpkin Fudge

AND, last but not least, something that I am definitely going to try this season, is the Pumpkin Fudge from Candy Palace. I see it every year and have yet to grab a cube. This year, I’m going to make it happen.

Hold on to your jack o’ lanterns, because I know there will be LOTS more Halloween treats to share with you.  But, since October has just begun, I’m thinking that this list puts us off to a pretty good start!

Have you tried any of the Halloween Treats at the Disneyland Resort yet? Do you have a favorite just yet?

    This makes me want to go to Disneyland so badly! I love the really elaborate character-shaped caramel apples.

    Also, I think that the orange cupcakes are supposed to be the tops of pumpkins. The Mickey head is maybe the stem? Not totally sure–they are kind of weird, but probably delicious.

  2. Essie says

    I have to agree with Kaitie. I think the white ones are ghosts with two brown eyes and the ever present, iconic, Mouse Ear Hat, and the orange is a pumpkin with green vines, a brown stem, and the Mouse Ear Hat. Gee, I don’t think I can pick a favorite, Heather, as just about everything looks so good, but I think I’d end up with a pretzel rod for taste and a cake pop for cuteness (a Mickey or a spider)!

    You forgot the pumpkin begniets! Get it for dessert at Cafe Orleans or at the Mint Julip Bar along with your latte (which can also be found at Jolly Holiday Bakery).

  4. Heather Sievers says

    @Katie – I thought pumpkin too, but it’s a really bizarre design.

    @Essie – You can’t go wrong with any of the picks! So yummy!

    @Maus – Oh I didn’t forget! They were out already on this particular visit. I had some just the other day, they will be getting their very own post!

    @Gaylin – Agree!

  5. Tim says

    “Can someone please tell me what in the world the orange ones in the bottom right are supposed to be?”

    Perhaps the design is a highly nuanced reference to the lobby of the old CircleVision attraction, and it’s The Cupcake of Confusion.

    Or not.

    @Connie – You’ll have to ask AJ! ; )

    @Tim – I’m totally going with that answer!

    Heather…you are an angel…please keep these posts coming. Only 20 more days till i get my chance to soak in all the fall/autumn/ halloween wonderfulness of the DLR. How to fit it all in to 2 1/2 days will be the hardest part!

    P.S. I will be having multiple orders of the pumpkin begniets! They must serve them at Cafe Orleans too right? I just made an ADR for our first night. After 20 years of visiting the park this will be my first time eating there (SHOCK!)

  8. Heather S. says

    @Angelina – They do have them at Café Orleans!!! But make sure you try a Monte Cristo too!

  9. Pamela says

    I tried those pumpkin squash fritters and they were just weird in texture, taste, and the dipping sauce. Weird taking a bite and here is a chunk of mushy pumpkin. The dipping sauce made it taste weirder too. I will happily stick to pumpkin beignets for my future visits.
