The holiday season is ALL OVER Disney World, so we don’t blame you if you’ve forgotten that it’s technically STILL FALL!
Luckily, Artist’s Palette at Saratoga Springs Resort is closing out the season with a DELICIOUS autumn-ready treat!
This week we were in search of seasonal treats and menu updates in the Art of Animation, Pop Century, All Star Music, All Star Sports, and All Star Movies resorts. Time to take a look at some spooky and seasonal updates and eats!
We were so excited to find some of these fall-themed baked goods that we already wrote a post dedicated to them! They look super fun, but they actually taste pretty good, too!
While we were checking out the new 2018 Happy Halloween Refillable Resort Mugs at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, we took a little trip around several Value Resort Food Courts to check out what’s popping up in the bakery cases these days. And, as it turns out, along with the seasonal refillable mugs now available, there are plenty of snacks in festive autumn themes and flavors hitting the scene, too!
Halloween and autumn treats can be found at all three All Star Resort Food Courts: All Star Sports End Zone Food Court, All Star Music Intermission Food Court, and All Star Movies World Premiere Food Court.
BOO to YOU from Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!! Mickey has just kicked off his very first Party of the Halloween Season in grand style. This extra-ticket event will run on select nights (find the dates here) in the Magic Kingdom from now through the BIG DAY… October 31st for Halloween!
The Party serves up all sorts of not-so-scary tricks and treats such as special entertainment like the Boo-To-You Parade and Happy HalloWishes Halloween Fireworks, meet-and-greets with characters (some rarely seen) in their Halloween costumes, Trick-or-Treating stations, and SO much more along with access to the park’s attractions!

Hello… and BOO!! Or perhaps I should I say Trick or Treat?! Because we’re about to take a look at some seriously spooky snacks coming to Walt Disney World for Halloween!
Like last year, some of these treats will be available all day for Magic Kingdom guests, while some will be exclusive to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party… at first! Stay tuned throughout the post, because though some snacks will make their debut at the Party, a few will be available to all Magic Kingdom visitors later in the season!
And if this all seems a little too soon… it’s not. Because Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicks off on August 17th… tomorrow night!!
Even if you aren’t attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, all guests in Magic Kingdom are able to enjoy the park’s festive decorations, and several snacks, to boot! You’ll see some familiar treats among the offerings. [Read more…]

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.
