Magic Kingdom will officially welcome fall next week, starting on September 15th with the arrival of fall decorations in the park and MUCH more. But the early arrival of seasonal snacks says to us that it’s pretty much Halloween time in Disney World, so we’ve pulled out our Fall Minnie Ears and some stretchy pants in preparation of all the treat-trying we’re gonna do!
It’s true — Disney canceled Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this year, but they have still released a HUGE laundry list of treats for the fall and Halloween season. And we’re ready to try Disney’s newest float for the occasion!
The Headless Horseman Rides Again can be found at Sunshine Tree Terrace for $10.69.
Yes, that’s pricey for a soft-serve treat, but here’s why: this snack also comes complete with a Headless Horseman Novelty Straw.
You can see him take his fabled midnight ride (atop the Float!) here…

While the Headless Horseman Rides Again is technically a new offering for the season, it is very similar to the Redd’s Revenge Float that was also available at Sunshine Tree Terrace a few months back. It’s made with Strawberry DOLE® Whip with Fanta Strawberry.
Basically, switch out Redd’s chocolate hat for the Headless Horseman Straw (it LIGHTS UP, y’all!), and you’ve got yourself a Headless Horseman Rides Again!
While it’s themed as an autumn treat, the flavors — basically, strawberry on top of strawberry — are about as summery as you can get. As we found with the Redd’s Revenge, the Strawberry Dole Whip plus the addition of the very sweet Strawberry Fanta lend this one a rather artificial strawberry taste.
But, hey, some people are really into that candy-like berry flavor, and though we prefer the taste of the classic Pineapple soft serve, and even flavor varieties like Lime, the Strawberry is still a fun option for changing things up.
