Dining in Disneyland: Pumpkin Treats Crawl

Dining in Disneyland columnist Heather Sievers has a new crawl for those of you headed to Disneyland soon — all about the pumpkin!!

Not THAT Kind of Pumpkin...

Before I even start, I must apologize for the quality of these photos.  I was having a very bad camera day; both my camera battery AND my spare were dead (oops) so I ended up using my phone to take photos. I knew I would not have another chance to work on this “Pumpkin Treats Crawl” before Halloween gets into full swing and I wanted to be sure you could hit the park for all of the pumpkin-y goodness!

Halloween time at Disneyland is most definitely my favorite time of the year.  I love the spooky-but-sweet decor that seems to appear overnight. The Haunted Mansion’s transformation into Jack Skellington’s ominous world is always exciting, and Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy adds its resident monster, Bob, to the ride as an added bonus.  My absolute most favorite thing though? Pumpkin flavored treats.
