Disney World's magical menu just got a spooky update.
Summer hasn’t quite cooled off yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dive into some festive fall food — especially at the Happiest Place on Earth.
On select evenings starting on August 25, Disney World is kicking off the Halloween season with Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. The event includes trick-or-treating throughout the park, eerie entertainment, and Disney characters dressed in their Halloween best.
The Magic Kingdom park will also be introducing its seasonal treats, available all day.

At the Main Street Bakery, park goers can enjoy a Mickey Halloween Cupcake: chocolate cake filled with purple marshmallow fluff and topped with bright orange vanilla buttercream, sprinkles, and a white chocolate scarecrow Mickey. Or, grab a Mickey-shaped cinnamon roll with orange icing and a chocolate spider web.
At the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, diners can dive into a scoop of pumpkin ice cream, perfect while the weather is still sweltering. For those not into pumpkins, Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies in Tomorrowland is serving up scoops in Candy Corn flavor.
At Gaston’s Tavern (and also at the Main Street Bakery), indulge in a Pumpkin Cheesecake Dome with a graham cracker streusel base, orange white chocolate glaze, and a white chocolate Mickey on top. Apparently, no one serves dessert like Gaston.
Of course, the King of Halloween, Jack Skellington, gets his own special dessert as well. Down at Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square, you can enjoy a vanilla panna cotta push pop with chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream, white and dark chocolate crisp pearls, dark chocolate curls, and a white chocolate Jack Skellington on top. Also at Sleepy Hollow, you can bite into a pumpkin Mickey waffle with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, sprinkles, and caramel sauce.
Perhaps the most Instagrammable of the bunch are the Haunted Mansion cakes, each with a different flavor and theme. The chocolate tarts are scattered around the park, from Aloha Isle and Liberty Square to Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies and Storybook Treats.
For kids and adults who like to trick their senses, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café will offer Worms and Dirt: a chocolate gravestone made of chocolate cake and chocolate mousse with chocolate glaze and topped with Oreo crumbs and gummy candy.
Of course, you can always grab a chocolate crisped rice treat or Vampire Mickey brownie at outdoor kiosks throughout the park whenever hunger strikes.
It’s going to be a very spooky and very delicious Halloween at Disney World this year.
