We love all kinds of treats here at the Disney Food Blog, especially fall-inspired snacks like the Pumpkin Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich or the (strange, but good) Monster drink. Throughout the month, we’ve tried tons of Halloween treats in Disney World, but there are still more new fall treats to taste!
While some of our favorite Halloween snacks can be found in the parks and Disney Springs, the Disney resorts have been known to create some unexpected winners as well! Recently, we made our way over to a Value Resorts to try the newest fall treat in Disney World; was it worth a visit?
Beware of spiders on the new Spooky Apple Spiced Spider Cupcake! This treat is made of a vanilla cupcake with apple filling and a spiced buttercream, caramel drizzle, and sugar spiders.
We’ve had other apple-filled cupcakes before, so we were curious just how this one would be!

But, what about taste? We’ll start with the toppings. The spiders on top are made of sugar. They’re not overly sweet (which is nice) and they provide a nice crunchy, texture change to the otherwise soft treat.
The icing is pretty sweet as it’s a vanilla buttercream, with a hint of cinnamon in it. The vanilla cake is very moist and yummy, just as a cupcake should be.
And, now we get to the most unique part of the cupcake — the apple filling! The filling was actually nice and fresh and had a light spice to it, which wasn’t overwhelming at all. The filling was also slightly cold, which was wonderfully refreshing on a hot Florida day.
All together, the parts of the cupcake go together really well. There’s sweetness from the icing, a hint of spice in the buttercream, a freshness from the apples, and a crunch from the sugar spiders. We wish there had been a stronger spice flavor to really take this cupcake up a notch, but overall it was still very good.
Our reporter who tried this said it’s probably one of their favorite cupcakes they’ve had recently on property because of its simplicity. Sometimes something simple done well is better than something overly complicated.
If you like apple and vanilla flavors, we have a feeling you’ll enjoy this. If those flavors aren’t your jam, then there are PLENTY of other cupcake options throughout Disney World you can try instead!
If you do want to get this spooky cupcake, it can be yours for $5.49. According to Disney’s guide for Halloween, the treat is meant to be available right now through October 31st at the food courts for Disney’s Art of Animation, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort, and Disney’s All-Star Music Resort. We checked some of the other spots earlier and couldn’t find it. But, today we found it over at the World Premiere Food Court at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort.
A food court at a value resort might not be the first place you think of to go for tasty Disney World treats. But, sometimes these spots can produce some delicious snacks, especially when it comes to cupcakes! So, be sure to check those bakery cases and see what you find.
Stay tuned to DFB as we keep you updated on all the Halloween treats at Disney World.
