Spooky Treats and Frightfully Festive Foods During Halloween Time at Disneyland

Location: Disneyland
One of my favorite times to plan a visit to Disneyland is during Halloween Time.  Disneyland is known for their sweet and savory seasonal treats and Halloween is no exception!  Halloween-themed food and beverage is a part of the spooky storytelling and “fang-tastic” fun. From new items such as the vampire alien macaron, to returning favorites like the graveyard cupcake and pumpkin spice beignets, there is something dreadfully delicious for everyone to enjoy during the Halloween season, which runs through Oct. 31.

  Guests visiting Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks may also choose to order some of the festive Halloween treats including the new boogie man sundae from Clarabelle’s Hand-Scooped Ice Cream or the new blackberry midnight julep from Mint Julep Bar using the mobile ordering feature on the Disneyland app!
All around the resort, guests will find creative and delicious Halloween-themed menu items inspired by beloved characters, stories and even famous Disney villains.  Don't forget to try some of them out and post your pics on Instagram!  I've got a comprehensive list below so you can plan your culinary adventure well in advance!
