Review! Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Treats (with Haunted Mansion Portrait Desserts!)

Friends, it might be summer in the rest of the country, but at Walt Disney World, Autumn is ON! And while some might say it’s too early for Halloween and Pumpkin-Spiced-EVERYTHING, I am not that person. So you KNOW that while I am happily in Disney World to cover the 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, I also HAD to grab my ticket for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!

It's Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party!

Epcot Food and Wine Festival — ‘Just the New Stuff’ Crawl!

We’re in high gear around here, anticipating the beginning of the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, which starts in a few days!

No doubt we’ll be out and about at the Marketplace Booths lots of times. But sometimes, we like to play with our food! And one of the best ways I’ve found to do that is with a themed crawl.

We have lots of fun crawl suggestions in our DFB Guide to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival E-book — save 20% with discount code Chefs! — including the Desserts Crawl, the Vegetarian Crawl, the Cheese Crawl, and more!

Today, we’re going to take you one of our favorites — the “Just the New Stuff Crawl”! This tour of the booths is especially helpful if you are limited on time, and you’re only interested in seeking out the dishes that are new in 2017.

“Just the New Stuff” Epcot Food and Wine Festival Crawl

Sweet Avocado Crema — Active Eats

Our first stop is the new Active Eats booth. While we’ve seen some of the booth’s other dishes before (the Loaded Mac ‘n’ Cheese with Nueske’s® Pepper Bacon, Cheddar Cheese, Peppers and Green Onions is a DFB Favorite), we’re after dessert on this mission. Stop by and try the Sweet Avocado Crema with Strawberries, Yellow Cake, and Tortilla Streusel.
