Disney World’s Halloween Menu Is Here, & We Need to Talk About The ‘Poor Unfortunate Souls’ Shakes

The minute summer is over, spooky season begins. We don’t make the rules.

First, Disney gifted us recipes for Dole Whipgrilled cheesechurros and fried pickles. Now, to get you in the autumnal spirit, Disney Parks Blog just released its official Foodie Guide to 2020 Fall Treats at Disney World and it’s…extensive. It’s so extensive that we couldn’t possibly list every treat on the menu (you’d fall asleep), but here are a few of the hits.

At Magic Kingdom, there’s the “Not So Poison Apple Cupcake,” a spiced apple cupcake with pecan crunch buttercream decorated to look like a poison apple (available at Pinocchio Village House); “Hades Nachos,” which are black bean nacho chips paired with buffalo chicken (available at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Café); and something called the “Poor Unfortunate Souls Float,” a combination of cream cheese soft-serve, black raspberry syrup and Coke that sounds like it would make our teeth hurt just a little bit (found at Storybook Treats).

Moving on to EPCOT, you’ll find something called “Nemo & Squirt’s Noggin Concoction,” which is a chocolate brownie stuffed with a chocolate chip cookie topped with white chocolate-covered pretzels and a Mickey Pumpkin Garnish (that’s only available on Halloween Day at Coral Reef Restaurant).

Adults can then head to Flame Tree Barbecue in Disney’s Animal Kingdom for some “Rotten Apple Punch,” a boozy drink made from Angry Orchard cider and Fireball Cinnamon Whisky served over ice, garnished with a rocky candy apple straw and and gummy worms (it’s likely meant to be sipped while your child complains of their stomachache from that Noggin Concoction.

At Hollywood Studios, we have our eyes on the pumpkin cheesecake cannoli (available at PizzeRizzo) and pumpkin tiramisu (available at Rosie’s All-American Café), some of the most subdued treats on the entire menu. Finally, wash it all down with a Frozen Apple Cider with Crown Royal Regal Apple, and settle in for a looong nap. You’ll need your energy for the calvalcade down Main Street, duh.
