Hello from the West Coast, DFB Readers!
It’s an exciting time to be at Disneyland Resort because HalloweenTime has officially arrived! And we’re checking it all out — all the cool decor, snacks, merchandise, characters, and more! So let’s see what’s new right now at Disneyland!
Disneyland Food Updates
We headed over to Gibson Girl Ice Cream to check out the Trick-or-Treat Sundae, which is basically two sundaes in one (yes, please!) The first sundae is made with Sour Gummy Ice Cream with Raspberry Sauce, Gummy Treats, and Fruit Candies. The second is made with Chocolate Ice Cream with Hot Fudge and Chocolate Candy Bar pieces. AND it’s served in a souvenir Mickey Kitchen Sink Bowl!
Here’s the thing, though — we didn’t think the flavors from the two sundaes mixed very well. But feel free to try it for yourself for $16.99.
The Grey Stuff just got a Halloween upgrade and is now known as the Halloween Grey Stuff. It’s the same Grey Stuff we know and love (White Chocolate Cookies and Cream Mousse with Red Velvet Cake and a Raspberry Center), but now it also has a Tombstone Cookie and Halloween Sprinkles. It’s pretty much tastes like the normal grey stuff, but look at it!
The Poison Apple Premium Mug has made a wicked comeback this year. We did see it earlier in the year (although it was purple then, and now it’s red) and we’ve seen other versions of it in the past. This isn’t clear like past versions — it’s a shiny metallic red!
We found this at Red Rose Taverne for $16.99 — it comes with your choice of a drink or fries. We also spotted it at the Fruit Stand on Buena Vista Street at California Adventure.
Halloween means ALL the pumpkin things, so we couldn’t turn down the Pumpkin Cheesecake Funnel Cake at Hungry Bear! And there is SO much to love about this snack — there’s Pumpkin Cheesecake Filling on top of a Funnel Cake, which is topped with Ice Cream and Whipped Cream and it’s in the shape of Mickey!
It’s a returning item, and we’re so happy to have this delicious treat back — it’s delicious! It’s available now for $8.99.
Disneyland Merchandise Updates
You want Halloween popcorn buckets? Well, Disneyland has got ’em! First up, we saw the Mickey Mummy Popcorn Bucket in Frontierland. Isn’t he boo-tiful? He’s available now at select popcorn carts throughout the resort for $20.50.
We also spotted a VERY cool Glow-in-the-Dark Mickey and Friends Halloween Popcorn Bucket. It’s got Mickey on it with all his friends — and they’re all wearing their Halloween costumes.
This one can be found at most popcorn carts throughout Disneyland for $11.
Disneyland Attraction Updates
Haunted Mansion Holiday
Haunted Mansion Holiday officially opened for the Halloween and holiday season this year! We were so ready to be reunited with Jack, Sally, and the whole Nightmare Before Christmas Gang in one of our favorite haunted houses
This has become such a fun tradition every year, and we’re so happy to have it back.
Disneyland Character Updates
Mickey and Minnie are now sporting their Halloween outfits!
Don’t they look GREAT?
Disneyland Other Updates
Disneyland is DECKED out for Halloween. The Mickey pumpkins are out and all the fun spooky decorations have us SO in the mood for the season!
Is it just us, or is this the BEST time of year to be at Disneyland?
Disney California Adventure Food Updates
We love food with a kick, so we had to try out the Ghost Pepper Nachos for $21 at Lamplight Lounge. These nachos are made with house-made Green Tortilla Chips, Ghost Pepper Cheese Sauce, Ghost Pepper-Marinated Steak, Refried Beans, Tomatillo Avocado Salsa, Tomato, and Cilantro. But did they pack a punch?
Well, actually we found them to be a bit milder than their description suggests. There was a bit of a kick, but if you’re worried about these being TOO spicy, they’re not. And they’re pretty yummy.
Speaking of snacks with a kick, we also tried the Pepper-Jack Cheese Stick at Corn Dog Castle. It’s a Pepper Jack Cheese Stick dipped in Corn Dog Batter and topped with Raspberry Sauce, Pineapple, and Jalapeños. And it was the perfect combo of sweet and spicy.
And really, can you go wrong with cheese on a stick? We think not. You can grab this snack for $8.99 — it comes with a choice of a Cuties Mandarin or Chips.
Disney California Adventure Other Updates
Over at Disney California Adventure, Halloween has also taken over much of the park. The Headless Horseman Statue has returned… .
…Cars Land got its Happy Haul-O-Ween overlay…
…and La Plaza de la Familia has returned!
The theming here is GORGEOUS!
Those are all the updates we have from Disneyland Resort right now, but we’ll be back soon with more! Happy Halloween!
