It is officially Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort and I am soooooo excited. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year (even though it doesn’t really exist weather wise here in So Cal) and I especially love fall at Disneyland. The whole park is decked out for the season and there are so many fun things to see and do. I will be visiting this year’s Halloween Time celebrations over the next couple of weeks and I will be sure to report back on all the fun. In the meantime, feel free to check out last year’s take on Halloween Time and read all about my first experience at Mickey’s Halloween Party. As of right now I am not planning on attending the Halloween Party this year since it is on the pricey side, but I am super bummed about that because they added a cool new parade this year and it looks amazing. I might just convince myself to go, but we’ll see!
Of course one of the best part of any holiday season is the food, and Halloween Time is no different. There are so many delicious new treats to try, both sweet and savory, that I am honestly not sure whether I will have the time (and the stomach) to get to them all. But I am going to try my best! And you can bet I will be telling you all about them when I do so you know what the can’t miss items are (seriously people, the sacrifices I make). Because there are so many spooky eats to try, I decided to make up a cool little list to help keep me on track, and since I am nothing if not a giver, I am going to share that list with you! Make sure you scroll all the way down to get your own printable copy of the Halloween Time Sweets and Treats list! (Note: This list is based off of info from the official Disney Parks blog, however, offerings can change at anytime. This is also not the complete list of offerings, just the ones that sounded the best to me.)
As of right now, I have officially marked off three items on the list! Here’s a brief review of each! First is the orange and vanilla swirl fro yo from California Adventure. This is delicious and basically tastes like an old fashioned creamsicle. It tastes more like summer than fall to me, and I was expecting the color to be a bit more dramatic, but it was tasty nonetheless!
I also sampled the Anti-Vampire Garlic Chicken Pizza from Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta. It was just okay. Not anything to write home about and definitely not as garlicky as I would have liked. Also, not a huge fan of the crust at Boardwalk. It’s pretty bland.
The Butterscotch Beignets, available in a couple of different locations (I got mine at the Mint Julep Bar behind French Market) were delicious. I mean, you really can’t go wrong with a beignet covered in butterscotch flavored powdered sugar. They were scrumptious, and I only ate one of the three and felt satisfied, so there is enough in one order to share!
Okay, I still have a whole lot of goodness to shovel into my piehole (gracefully and like a lady, of course). Come back soon to see how everything rates on the yumminess scale! And if you would like to download and print out your own copy of the Sweet and Treats list, click this link right here!
