One of the annual highlights of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is the choice of specialty treats – available only to guests with a party ticket. Disney has prepared some special tasty thrills and chills for 2017. Additionally, there are Halloween goodies available to any guest throughout the day, including a spiderweb-topped Mickey cinnamon roll at the Main Street Bakery, autumnal cupcakes, and pumpkin ice cream at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.
Keep an eye out for an especially cute pumpkin Mickey popcorn bucket. This year it’s refillable – for $1.50 for the length of your stay.
At Sleepy Hollow, near the bridge to Liberty Square from the Hub, you’ll find a party exclusive – a white chocolate Jack Skellington with a crooked leer, popping out of vanilla panna cotta layered atop chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream, with white chocolate and dark chocolate crisp pearls. Sleepy Hollow also has the popular Halloween Party sundae with hot pumpkin Mickey waffles, spooky sprinkles, and caramel sauce.
In New Fantasyland, Gaston’s Tavern offers a bright orange pumpkin cheesecake dome with a thin graham cracker streusel crust, topped with a pumpkin Mickey white chocolate disk.
Candy corn swirl soft-serve ice cream, a Mickey’s Not So Scary guest favorite, will this year be dished up at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies in Tomorrowland.
Pecos Bill’s Tall Tale Inn and Café offers a little plastic grave filled with Worms and Dirt, the gummy worms and Oreo crumb “dirt” bury chocolate cake and chocolate mousse with a chocolate glaze.
You have to go on a new spooky “treasure hunt” to experience all four of the 2017 Happy Haunts chocolate tart desserts. Each of the four is topped with a different white chocolate portrait from the Haunted Mansion on a crispy chocolate tart base.
The first can be found at Liberty Square Market – this is the open air fruit stand that you might have found yourself zipping through en route to the Haunted Mansion. During Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, you can find one of the Haunted Mansion tarts here. This one has the Stretching Room portrait of a totem pole of three men who didn’t see the Quick Sand sign. Below is peanut butter mousse and chocolate ganache.
The second spooky tart is hidden unexpectedly amongst the Dole Whips at Aloha Isle in Adventureland. A thick layer of chocolate ganache lies below the whipped Oreo flavored filling (reminiscent of the Grey Stuff at Be Our Guest restaurant). This one memorializes the gartered gentleman in the striped bloomers who doesn’t seem to notice that he’s standing on a keg of dynamite – which the adjacent candle is about to light up.
The third tart is offered at Storybook Treats (across from the entrance to the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train – and in previous years the home of Candy Corn ice cream during the Halloween party). This tart has lemon curd with strawberry compote filling. The Stretching Room portrait is the widow of Dear Departed George sitting demurely on his tombstone (does that rose conceal a cleaver up her sleeve?).
The resting place of the final tart is Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies in Tomorrowland. It’s a raspberry mousse on a panna cotta base. The fabulous white chocolate topper is the signature purple wallpaper from the Haunted Mansion, covered with creepy pairs of eyes.
While the party is Not So Scary, the lines for specialty desserts can be frightening (particularly at Sleep Hollow) – so, as always at a Magic Kingdom party event, prioritize your time in advance. Don’t forget that for the most part these Halloween treats are all eligible snack choices on the Disney Dining Plan. Supplies are limited, so don’t wait until the end of the evening to seek one out! These very photogenic goodies are great Instagram fodder, so be sure to snap before you bite! 🙂
