Heading to Disneyland for Halloween? Don’t miss out on these terrifyingly terrific Halloween treats at Disneyland.
I just spent a week in California. It’s the first trip I’ve been on in nine years where I left the laptop at home and skipped work all together (or at least anything I couldn’t get done on my phone). It’s also the first “family” vacation I’ve taken with my boyfriend Jay and his two teenage girls.
Halloween at Disneyland is a trip that’s been on my bucket list for years. I was thrilled when Jay suggested we go ahead and book the trip. Since it’s a trip I’ve really looked forward to, I wanted to go all out. We booked our trip through Get Away Today and saved enough money with one of their partner hotel and park hopper packages that we were able to plan on dining and snacking in the park for four adults.
Get Away Today sells more Disneyland packages than any other travel agency. As a result, they have some amazing packages year round. Most of their hotel and ticket packages feature reduced rights and free nights. The best part? It’s super easy to research and book online.
Today I am sharing 12 of the fantastic Halloween treats we tried while at Disneyland with our extra cash.
Halloween Treats at Disneyland
Our very first stop in the park was Tomorrow Land. We were on a mission to ride Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy without waiting in long lines. Even heading straight there, we waited in line for about an hour. (Mental note. Buy the MaxPass.)
I have to be honest, I didn’t love the ride. I prefer the regular Space Mountain roller coaster. But after a few more rides in Tomorrow Land (who doesn’t love the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters and Star Tours), we decided to stop for water and a treat. We purchased these fun Halloween colored churros in orange and purple.
Not all of the churro carts had the special Halloween churros. However, they’re supposed to be available throughout the park. Regardless, a churro is always a must during three-days at Disneyland. The churros cost $4.50.
Over in the Jolly Holiday Cafe and Bakery, we picked up a couple of Disneyland’s famous macarons.
We initially stopped in to purchase the Mickey-Shaped Mummy Macaron. It’s covered in white chocolate and filled with the most delicious chocolate salted caramel filling. I have to be honest I am not usually a huge fan of macarons, but I LOVED this treat and it was a favorite with the girls.
Of course, if you’re going to buy a Macaron at Disneyland you really have to try the Mickey-Shaped Raspberry Rose Macaron. When I asked for your recommendations for tasty treats at Disneyland, this one was by far the most recommended. It was also Jay’s favorite treat.
The macarons are very generously sized and are available for $4.99.
Just down Main Street, we purchased donuts at the cappuccino cart.
There were different Halloween themed donuts available throughout the day. And kids seemed to get a real kick out of the spider web donuts.
We purchased one of the Frankenstien monster donuts for $6. They’re very generous in size and it was a treat that was easy to share amongst our group. One of our favorite things about the donut? The fun mini Twix bar electrodes on each side of his head.
One of my favorite lunch stops in Disneyland is the Stage Door Cafe in Frontierland. The corn dogs. Oh. My. Word. I love them. I genuinely dream about them…sigh. It’s also where we were able to share a Campfire S’mores Funnel Cake.
This overwhelming theme-park dessert is covered in chocolate-chili ganache and toasted white marshmallow, topped with crushed graham crackers and Butterfinger candy bar. The Campfire S’mores Funnel Cake is $7.50.
The extra-large Matterhorn Macaroon is a Disney staple. They’ve updated the dessert with orange and purple sprinkles for Halloween.
The delicious coconutty macaroon is available at Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe. If you’re feeling really edgy, try this “snack” in combination with a Dole Whip.
No trip to a theme park is complete without a bag of cotton candy…at least not if you’re a 15-year-old girl.
Candy corn colored cotton candy was readily available throughout both Disneyland and California Adventure. We picked up a bag while waiting in an 80-minute line to check out the new(ish) Guardians of the Galaxy ride. The flavor was simply straight-up sugar. A bag of cotton candy runs $4.
Sugar cookies are available throughout the parks in treat shops on Main Street and Beuna Vista Street.
I like a soft sugar cookie, so these weren’t number one on my list, but they were great for the girls to carry in their bag and eat along the way.
There were a number of treats available in both parks that we just had to try. The cake pops were so well done, we had to grab at least one.
In the end we went with the Jack Skellington pop.
I’ve never tried a cake pop at Disneyland before. While it was probably my favorite in terms of “cute factor,” it wasn’t my favorite to eat. The candy coating on the outside was just a bit to thick and hard to bite through. We purchased our cake pop at Trolley Treats in California Adventure for just over $4.
We also purchased a Mickey Mouse marshmallow treat. Honestly? Totally cute, but probably our least favorite treat on the trip. Bummer since we were really after Halloween treats too.
Kids would probably like this treat, which cost right around $4.
Over in California Adventure, one of our first stops was the Radiator Springs Racers. It’s such a fun ride. However, we kept going back for the fantastic holiday decor. Cars Land is just so well done.
We heard rumors of pumpkin churros being sold over at the “churro cone,” but we didn’t see them. I suspect it was really just the orange colored sugar churros we tried in Tomorrow Land.
We did find this tasty little Mini Candy Cone Pie at Flo’s V-8 Cafe. It was probably the smallest treat we tried and would really be best for one.
The pie was filled with a butterscotch pudding and topped with a vanilla and white chocolate mousse. It cost just over $5.
The most stunning of all the holiday treats were Disney’s spectacular caramel apples done Halloween style. Aren’t they stunning?
There’s nothing like a good caramel apple and ours was devoured before a photo was even taken – oops! Be sure to ask one of the cast members to slice your apple for sharing!
No. It’s not exactly a traditional “Halloween” treat, but when California is experiencing a 100°+ heat wave you grab a Dole Whip…Okay, let’s be honest. For me, a trip to Disneyland just isn’t a trip without experiencing a Dole Whip. Love. Love. Love.
Dole Whips are available for $4.50 and a substantial wait in line. I like to go around to the back side of the Dole Whip station and purchase one while in line for the Tiki Room. It’s not my favorite Disneyland attraction, but it’s a cool space to sit and enjoy your soft serve pineapple ice cream.
I’ve never eaten my way through Disneyland in quite this manner (and it probably will not happen again). We were excited to try all of the Halloween treats at Disneyland and while we didn’t get to them all, I think we did a pretty good job of covering the basics!
Do you have a favorite Disneyland bite? We’ll definitely be making a return trip and would love to know what your favorite is. Leave us a comment!
