Halloween is in full swing at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, and during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, guests get to enjoy a special fireworks and projection show: HalloWishes! And for guests who want to plus-up their HalloWishes experience, there’s the HalloWishes Dessert Party!
Now you know I like a dessert party, having enjoyed the Happily Ever After Dessert Party — once for the before fireworks experience and once for the after party. And we’ve been getting a LOT of reader questions about the HalloWishes edition of the Magic Kingdom dessert party.
So while I didn’t attend the HalloWishes Dessert Party this year, I had to grab some pics for you! Luckily the cast members were kind enough to let me take a few shots! If you’re interested in my thoughts on the value of a Dessert Party in Magic Kingdom, you can watch our video on the topic here.
Note that the “bang for your buck” quotient of the HalloWishes dessert party is a little lower than it is for regular Happily Ever After dessert parties, since you’re paying an upcharge to attend MNSSHP in the first place…and the dessert party cuts into that Halloween party time! Plus, you can get many of these treats in their full-sized editions out in the park. So you’ll need to do the math to determine if attending the party, having all-you-can-eat treats, and locking in that VIP view of HalloWishes makes sense for you.
Here is a photo tour of the HalloWishes Dessert Party treats!
Most of them will look familiar because they’re smaller versions of the tasty treats we tried during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party back on its first night! First up: Worms ‘n Dirt! (This is basically chocolate pudding, chocolate cake crumbles, gummy worms, and a Master Gracey white chocolate tombstone!)
These are a familiar contribution to a Disney dessert party: Chocolate-Covered Strawberries! But in this case, they’re spookified with Halloween sprinkles.
You already know how I feel about this Poison Apple Cupcake. If not, peep the DFB Instagram!
Totally cute Oogie Boogie Meringues!
Madame Leota is back as a tart here as well (minus the cool crystal globe that you get when you purchase the full size edition at Liberty Square Market).
Jack Skellington‘s push-pop has been transformed into a cup. He’s just as skellington-y.
And some classic chocolate bark that’s ready for it’s Halloween close up!
Doom Buggy Puffs are a fun take on cream puffs.
This Pumpkin Cheesecake is actually really good!
And Cheeseburger Spring Rolls are iconic in Magic Kingdom — so glad they’ve returned to Adventureland!
(they look like this:)
Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake is a Liberty Tree Tavern favorite! And here it’s all you care to eat!
Fresh Fruit and Crackers and Cheese are good, lighter options.
And the Spinach Dip goes well on those crackers (though I don’t love that it’s served cold).
Kids (and kids-at-heart…hey, you paid for it!) can decorate their own cupcakes, brownies, and cookies!
And action stations include create-your-own-sundae and a fun s’mores station!
Drinks include berry lemonade, POG juce, iced and hot coffee, tea, milk, and more.
Including sparkling apple cider!
The HalloWishes Fireworks Dessert Party takes place at Tomorrowland Terrace, just as the Happily Ever After parties do. The cost is $84 for guests 10 and up and $50 for guests 3-9 years old. So it’s not cheap — particularly since you’ve already paid for the party. But if you plan on trying all the Party treats anyway and want to be sure you’ve go a decent view of HalloWishes, it might just work out for you!
