Halloween Time at Disneyland Review
It’s Halloween Time at Disneyland (actually it’s been Halloween Time for about a month now) and the park is in full swing. Halloween Time is a great limited running event in both DCA and Disneyland with specific characters in Halloween costumes and limited edition merchandise and food.
Disneyland had a big Mickey Jack O Lantern at the start of Main St USA and my personal favorite is the Headless Horseman on Buena Vista St in DCA. I recommend taking the photo at night as the colors and lighting make for a great photo.
There are select characters dressed in Halloween costumes but good luck finding a Photo Pass Cast Member for the ones at Disneyland. I’ve been several times in the past few weeks and only found one with Mickey. I have however gotten much luckier at DCA as they have more Photo Pass people to take advantage of the high quality photo downloads. My personal favorite photo op is of Donald Duck in DCA.
As for food I’ve been working my way through the Halloween Time Food and here come some quick reviews:
The Peanut Butter and Jelly Cronut is a great dish to have if you’re into very sweet and very heavy food. The donut is around 3 lbs of sheer indulgence. Creamy Peanut Butter and Grape Jelly are inside a crunchy cronut (crossiant donut) with sweet glaze to resemble a spooky and sweet mummy. Please note that you need to be very hungry for this dish as it is a lot of food for one person to take down. 4/5 pumpkins
The Coco Cake is a part of the Coco menu at land at DCA’s Paradise Garden Grill. The land has been converted to be themed from the Disney Pixar movie “Coco” in honor of Dia De Los Muertos holiday. The cake is “churro” flavored with three layers of moist cake and churro flavored cream with a thick cream cheese frosting and a Dia De Los Muertos skull. The cake was delicious but was not as churro flavored as I wanted it to be. 3/5 pumpkins
My current obsession is the Churro Sundae from The Golden Horseshoe at Frontier Land in Disneyland. This is a “seasonal” offering for Halloween time (which makes no bloody sense since none of these ingredients are Halloween/seasonal and it’s so delicious that it should be all year round). Generous scoops of cookie dough ice cream are placed in a cup with warm cookie butter sauce and a churro to add a tasty crunch. The flavors all work together but at first the sauce looks like caramel but the cookie butter flavor works so well with the ice cream. 5/5 pumpkins.
Happy to try the new menu items at other restaurants this upcoming week and will report back soon. Remember, you’re all diamonds.
