It’s Fall and Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is upon us! The Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe at Disneyland has added some seasonal items to their repertoire that you don’t want to miss!
On a recent visit I tried several new items, and I’m happy to say there wasn’t a bad one in the bunch.
It’s really hard to choose a favorite because each one of these was pretty darn delicious. I think though, I’m going to choose the Spiced Bundt Cake as my favorite. It had a unique Fall flavor to it and although I LOVE pumpkin, it’s nice to get a little variety of flavors to celebrate the season.
This cake was so moist; the knife slid right through it as I cut it in half. It had a nice spice flavor to it, not too overdone; and it had delicious vanilla custard-like frosting that was generously drizzled over the top and made its way into the center of the cake as well.
My favorite thing about this cake was that amazing cinnamon whipped cream on the top. It was light, fluffy, and really a great addition to this year’s seasonal items. The Spiced Bundt Cake is $5.19 and generously sized.
Next up is the Pumpkin Cheesecake. I absolutely loved this dessert, but it was really more like pumpkin pie than cheesecake.
The “cheesecake” part was basically pumpkin pie filling. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining; it was really great. But, when I took a bite, I immediately thought “Pie.” There is a thin layer of graham cracker crust on the bottom, which is definitely a cheesecake trait, but overall… Pumpkin Pie.
Cheesecake and pumpkin pie fans alike will love this dessert. It’s also topped with that glorious cinnamon whipped cream that I mentioned above. Perfect for sharing, a serving of Pumpkin Cheesecake will set you back $5.39.
Normally I’m not a huge eclair fan. I’ve tried each different flavor from Jolly Holiday since it’s been open and have never gone back for seconds… The Caramel Eclair, though, is actually much better than the ones I’ve had in the past.
The Caramel Eclair reminded me of a cream puff. The flavor was mild and the texture of the pastry was just right. To me it tasted of vanilla with a hint of caramel.
Still not my favorite treat, and I probably would choose something else over this one, but in my opinion, a big improvement on flavor from the last few I’ve tried. Also, I feel like in the past I may have gotten an eclair that was not so fresh and a little to hard to chew. This one was softer and tasted very freshly made. If seasonal flavors aren’t your thing, Jolly Holiday also offers a Signature Chocolate Eclair year round. The price of an eclair is $3.99.
Every year I look forward to the return of the Pumpkin Muffin! This is one of my staple seasonal eats.
The Pumpkin Muffin never disappoints. It’s the perfect treat, sort of dessert-like, sort of breakfast-like… Versatile, right?
It’s back this year and better than ever. Moist, pumpkin goodness filled with golden raisins and just the right amount of Fall spices. Topped with streusel crumbles and a generous amount of cream cheese frosting that makes its way into the center of the muffin as well. I absolutely love this muffin. It can be yours for $3.49, which is cheaper than a cupcake, but you’ll still feel like you’re eating one!
Overall, I highly recommend a visit to Jolly Holiday. They have so many great options in their bakery case, both seasonal and year round.
