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.

I’ve always been a pumpkin lover, and if there is something “pumpkin flavored” on any type of menu, I’m always game to give it a whirl.  Every year at Disneyland I try and eat my way through their holiday specialties.  This year, I’ve decided to compile them and create a “Pumpkin Treats Crawl” for you.  Why should I be having all the fun, right?

Pumpkin Crawl Stop #1: Jamba Juice in Downtown Disney

Our crawl is going to start in Downtown Disney at Jamba Juice.  This is actually one of my most favorite stops along our little trip.  It gets you right in the mood for pumpkin yumminess.
