Between the creepy rides, festive costumes and fun parades, Halloween is prime time to visit Disney Parks. But our favorite attraction is no doubt the food, since you can indulge in everything from eerie drinks to stunning pumpkin goodies and Instagram-worthy desserts, like a bat wing-toting cherry soft-serve cone, a Jack Skellington bubble waffle sundae and Oogie Boogie funnel cake fries topped with cookie “dirt” and gummy worms. Read on for the 12 most exciting Halloween goodies to have at Walt Disney World and Disneyland in October 2022.
The 12 Most Over-the-Top Halloween Treats Sold at Disney Parks in October 2022
1. Monster Mousse
Availability: Sunshine Seasons in EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort, October 28-31
This confection is so devilishly indulgent that you won't mind it looking back at you while you devour it. It starts with a shortbread cookie base, which is topped with caramel mousse and stuffed with apple-caramel filling. There's also another version of Monster Mousse available at Disney's Riviera Resort from October 29-31, starring pistachio mousse, morello cherry and milk chocolate crumble.
2. 'Hocus Pocus' Amuck Cakes
Availability: Gasparilla Island Grill at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, October 1-31
The Sanderson Sisters are back—and there's delicious hell to pay, just in time for the Hocus Pocus sequel. Round up your coven for these rich devil’s food cupcakes stuffed with peanut boo-tter mousse. Each cupcake is decorated to resemble one of the witches' iconic hairdos. (We call dibs on Winnie.)
3. Pumpkin Lunchbox Tart
Availability: Woody's Lunchbox in Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort, October 1-31
How psyched would your little Toy Story fan be to find this in his lunchbox (or on the breakfast table)? We're betting only half as excited as you would be. Think flaky pastry dough, filled with pumpkin pie and topped with marshmallow fondant, candy corn and Halloween sprinkles.
4. Mickey Mummy Cookies
Availability: Dockside Diner and Rosie's All-American Cafe in Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort, October 1-31
Don't let its appearance fool you—this isn't a run-of-the-mill frosted sugar cookie. It's actually a Mickey-shaped chocolate cookie enrobed in white chocolate-mint frosting. Consider that a trick *and* a treat.
5. Pumpkin Spice Funnel Cake
Availability: Stage Door Café in Disneyland Park at Disneyland Resort, available through November 10
PSL fans, this one's for you. Dive face-first into warm, crispy pumpkin spice-kissed funnel cake, finished with spiced caramel drizzle, toffee bits, whipped cream and orange-colored chocolate curls. If you're craving something creepier, head to Disney California Adventure Park before Halloween for Oogie Boogie Funnel Cake Fries, which are topped with crushed chocolate creme-filled cookies, whipped cream, gummy worms and chocolate.
6. Candy Corn Milkshake
Availability: Hollywood Scoops in Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort, October 1-31
Because milkshake season isn’t over ’til we say it is. Sip your way through this festive candy corn ice cream shake, complete with whipped cream, spooky sprinkles and, of course, candy corn. In case that deal isn’t sweet enough, it’s also topped with a frosted vanilla cake donut for good measure.
7. Halloween Cake
Availability: French Market Restaurant at Disneyland Resort, available through November 10
This crowd-pleaser is next-level vibrant, thanks to purple-colored vanilla sponge cake, blood red raspberry mousse dappled with fresh raspberries and candied cocoa nibs. You can also mosey over to Disneyland Resort's Plaza Inn before November 10 to try their Monster Halloween Cake, which boasts three tiers of devil's food cake, layered with colorful white chocolate mousse and buttercream frosting.
8. Seasonal Churros
Availability: Various locations at Disneyland Resort, most available through November 10
Disneyland is known for its churros, and there’s no shortage of specialty creations to savor around the park this year. A few of our favorites include the Pumpkin Spice Churro rolled in pumpkin spice-flavored sugar at the Buena Vista and Tomorrowland Churro Carts, the Pistachio-Cherry Churro served with ghost pepper grape dipping sauce at the New Orleans Square Churro Cart and Grizzly Peak Churro Cart's Peanut Candy Churro, which is rolled in peanut powder, sugar and crushed peanuts, then drizzled with peanut butter sauce.
9. Pumpkin Patch Cookie
Availability: Catalina Eddie's in Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort, October 1-31
How cute are these decked-out snickerdoodle cookies? They're dusted with a generous dose of cinnamon sugar, then topped with pumpkin spice buttercream, pumpkin candies and icing vines. We'll take a baker's dozen, please (and wash it down with warm apple cider).
10. Pumpkin Bundt Cake
Availability: Pacific Wharf Cappuccino Cart in Disney California Adventure Park at Disneyland Resort, available through November 10
If sweet-and-salty desserts are your kryptonite, behold your new all-time favorite. These precious pumpkin-flavored cakes are piled high with dulce de leche and cream cheese frosting. And because details are everything, each cake is finished with a chocolate stem and mousse leaf to boot.
11. Pumpkin Spice Beignets
Availability: Mint Julep Bar in Disneyland Park at Disneyland Resort, available through November 10
This NOLA staple just got a sweater season makeover. The batter is infused with pumpkin spice before being fried. Once the beignets are crispy and hot, they're rolled in pumpkin spiced sugar and confectioners' sugar. Dip them into warm caramel or a fall latte for maximum fuzzy feels.
12. Festive Floats
Availability: Vivoli il Gelato in Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort, available through November 1
You can only choose one to stomp the sidewalks with on Halloween night. Will it be the Jack-O'-Lantern Float with orange soda, vanilla gelato and green whipped cream or the Vampire Float with red-colored Sprite, vanilla gelato and whipped cream? If ice cream is more your vibe, go for the Monster Shake instead, made with mint chocolate chip ice cream and chocolate sauce. If you're in Disneyland, you won't be left out—keep an eye out for the park's boozy floats, made with either hard apple or pumpkin chai ciders.
