Eating Your Way Through Disneyland Halloween Time: A 2018 Food Guide

Of the many excellent things about Halloween Time at Disneyland, the food is absolutely my favorite. The magical chefs at the park really turn up the creativity, and produce foods that are mostly delicious, but more than that, are just plain fun to eat. Here are my favorites:

Mummy Macaron

The Mummy Macaron from Jolly Holiday Bakery

I love this dessert so much. Macarons aren’t really my favorite, but the mild flavor of the white chocolate cookie paired with the on-the-nose Oreo flavor of the buttercream filling was excellent. The perfect nostalgic-tinged grown-up treat – but I was glad I got a to-go container so I could finish it later, because it was definitely too much for one sitting. Find this at Jolly Holiday on Main Street USA in Disneyland. Hidden Mickeys: 9/10

Pumpkin Pie Shake

Pumpkin Pie Shake from Flo’s V8 Cafe

I expected to have about three sips of this shake, but it was excellent. A pumpkin ice cream milkshake, with a generous caramel swirl, graham cracker garnish and pumpkin spice sugar on top. I loved the really good pumpkin ice cream, but the caramel was a little too much for me eventually. Find it at Flo’s V8 Cafe in Cars Land in California Adventure. Hidden Mickeys: 8/10

Slow Burnin’ Mac and Cheese

Slow Burnin’ Mac and Cheese from the Cozy Cone Motel

There’s really no such thing as bad macaroni and cheese, but this spicy version hit all the right notes: cheesy red pepper sauce, cavatappi pasta and crumbles of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos on top, all inside a pumpernickel bread cone. So. Good. Hidden Mickeys: 9/10

And Then… Churros

Maleficent Churro

I love a good churro, but this one was only ok. Dusted with Oreo powder and purple and green sugar, it looked festive but was missing some of the vital churro essence that comes in a traditional cinnamon treat. Hidden Mickeys: 3/10

Pumpkin Spice Churro

Packed with cinnamon and nutmeg, this churro really was kind of spicy, which was a pleasant surprise. The cream cheese dip worked nicely to cool it down. Hidden Mickeys: 7/10

S’mores Churro

This churro was a bit messy, but worth it. Covered in chocolate chips, graham cracker pieces and chocolate and marshmallow drizzle, the s’mores churro really did taste like a s’more with – dare I say? – an upgraded delivery system. Hidden Mickeys: 7.5/10

I skipped the cake pops and crispy treats – but seriously, how cute are they?
