Tricky Treats - Disney Elite

Tricky Treats

maxresdefault

At a recent outing to the resort my dear friend "St. James" was looking forward to the delicious pumpkin flavored beignets. To our Halloween horror the Mint Julep Bar has discontinued the flavor! So I thought I better take a look at what the resort has this month for treats.

In Disneyland Park, as always, the first stop is Candy Palace. The selection of candied apples alone would fill the biggest of trick-or-treat bags. There's Jack Skellington with and without mouse ears, bats, jack-o-lanterns, and my personal favorite Evil Queen. Don't skip Jolly Holiday, the bakery is full of exquisitely decorated cookies, cupcakes, and my personal favorite macaroons! Also returning this year the Poison Apple Steins, $12.99 with a beverage of your choice.

Of course the big hit this season is the Oogie Boogie popcorn bucket! There is also a Mickey jack-o-lantern option, but boys and ghouls are standing in long queues for Oogie Boogie. The newest version of the AP re-fillable popcorn bucket features the villains. For $15.00 plus tax you can purchase the bucket and get it filled until Oct. 31 for $1.00 plus tax. Of course now you have to deal with the Pop Secret popcorn, but that's a rant for another day.

Across the Esplanade you can purchase the candied apples and the popcorn buckets including a Headless Horseman bucket, but the new exciting thing is a temporary menu at Paradise Garden. As mentioned in this week's UPdate, this area is currently called Plaza de la Familia and has some fresh menu items celebrating Coco, the Disney film opening in November:

Elote: $5.50 Street-style Corn with Mayonnaise, lime, cheese, and Cayenne Pepper                                                                      

Ensaldas de Frutas: $6.50 Jicama, watermelon, cucumber, pineapple, and mango with Chile lime salt 

Paletas (fruit bar): $4.50 Fresco (strawberry), Coco (coconut), or mango

Pineapple Augua Fresca: $5..00 A sweet pineapple cooler

La Quitarra Cookies: $4.25 Decorative sandwich cookies with dulce leche filling

The Garden Grill also has a new Coco inspired entree menu that is definitely worthy of your attention!

Glow straws and bottle toppers continue to be all the rage with a pumpkin design at Disneyland Park, and a Tire Pumpkin at DCA. Soon there will be a Headless Horseman version at both parks.

I am please to announce that the Poison Apple Martini has returned to Carthay Circle which includes the special edition green Poison Apple glow cube. The red version of the cube is available throughout the parks and the hotels of the Disneyland Resort. Also on Buena Vista Street, Clarabell's Hand Scooped Ice Cream has two Halloween Time offerings: The Bat Wing Raspberry Sundae, and a Spider Silk Macaroon Ice Cream Sandwich. Meanwhile Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe offers a Sleepy Hollow cupcake, a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, raspberry drizzle, and chocolate Headless Horseman topper.

For you fans of the Traffic Cone Sipper in Cars Land, there is a special Halloween version. The two sizes come complete with stickers to create your own jack-o-lantern face right on your cone! Do not miss the Spook-y Cone Macaroon shaped like our scary cones with a marshmallow cream center full of whole candy corns. Also available at The Cozy Cone: Junked-up popcorn covered in trick-or-treat candy. This food court serves up a "Slow Burnin' Mac & Cheese Cone," with a red pepper cheese sauce and crunchy chili cheese topping. Flo's V8 Cafe has a new "Car-achnid" chicken pot pie on the menu for Halloween, topped with a spider-decorated crust. The pie theme continues with the Candy Corn Pie.

"Ghostly Pepper Nachos" are available at The Cove Bar for a limited time, green tortilla chips covered with flank steak, ghost pepper cheese sauce and avocado-tomatillo salsa. Beware, these treats have a trick, they are much spicier than you'd expect!

In Hollywood Land, lest you think the donuts craze is going anywhere, Schmoozie's serves up a MonsterMallow donut. You can also get a "Mummy" macaroon rainbow sherbet sandwich here, or a caramel apple smoothie.
This week I tried the Smokejumper's Grill "Green Apple Spell Lemonade" with cherry drops, it is fantastic!, 


Finally, if you were one of the guest that stood in line for hours last year at Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar to get the first Hitchhiking Ghost tiki mug, remember to keep an eye out for the second one being released this week!

So grab a bat cookie and walk down Main Street U.S.A. with me as we look at the apartment window and say, "goodnight Uncle Walt".
