When you see those orange Mickey wreaths at the Magic Kingdom, you know fall has arrived at Walt Disney World Resort. Fall and Halloween may not look the same in 2020 as previous years at Walt Disney World, but the Halloween Disney snacks have arrived! After trying many of them, here are the best and worst fall snacks at Magic Kingdom in 2020.
Best Fall Snacks at Magic Kingdom in 2020
Halloween is my favorite season, so I had to make a trip to check out all the fall and Halloween fun at Walt Disney World in 2020. I really visit for the food. The magic is bonus. Some of the fall Disney snacks I loved and others were misses. Here’s what’s worth your money!
Mickey Pumpkin Spiced Waffle Sundae at Sleepy Hollow
This one was the clear winner for me, and my favorite fall Disney snack at Magic Kingdom. I love pumpkin treats, but especially bread-flavored pumpkin. Plus make them Mickey waffles, and I’m a sucker. Nothing fancy, it’s just good flavors mixed together. The pumpkin spice waffles have vanilla ice cream on top, caramel sauce, and whipped cream with sprinkles.
You can find this at Sleepy Hollow which is on the way to Liberty Square from Cinderella Castle. The line may be long, but it’s worth it. Also some people may be trying to get a Madame Leota Sipper which were sold out when I went <insert sobbing here>.
Pumpkin Spice Milkshake at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies
Since we’re on the topic of Pumpkin Spice, let’s so to the Pumpkin Spice Milkshake at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies in Tomorrowland. I was too full to try this one, but my friend Tina from Footprints in Pixie Dust tried it and said it was delicious! She said the texture was smooth, it wasn’t too heavy on the pumpkin, and the Mickey marshmallow was fresh and added to the shake flavor.
I like pumpkin flavored ice cream, so I’m sure I’d like this, too. But one note is that I’ve noticed Disney is going heavy on the food coloring with some items lately, and I don’t think it’s necessary.
Mickey Monster Bash Burger at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe
Listen, there aren’t a lot of places to eat at Magic Kingdom Park right now. So I’m going easy on Cosmic Ray’s, because usually I’m not a fan. The Mickey Monster Mash Burger is a hamburger with Meunster cheese, lettuce, tomato, tater tots, bacon, and sriracha aiolo. I don’t like spicy, so I asked for the sriracha on the side.
The Mickey bun is a cute touch, but the burger meat itself is not good. It tastes like cafeteria meat, but the combination of everything together works. The sriracha has a little kick to it, not too spicy, but I wouldn’t want it drizzled all over the burger either.
I wish there would have been a few more tater tots, because the flavor and texture added to the burger, but overall, I would eat this again. However, is Columbia Harbour House opens again, I’d eat there instead.
Constance’s For Better or For Worse Wedding Wedding Cake
This citrus cake with raspberry Bavarian cream, whipped cream flowers, and a chocolate axe was available to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party last year.
The mixture of flavors is delicious and who can resist the adorable theming? This is available at Liberty Square Market!
Worst Halloween Snacks Magic Kingdom 2020
When providing opinions about snacks, it’s all subjective. My taste buds may not be the same as yours, and honestly, sometimes Disney is having a bad day and the food isn’t up to par. Some people may enjoy the next snacks, but they weren’t my jam.
Headless Horseman Rides Again Float at Sunshine Tree Terrace
So I did not hate this, but it was very sweet and strawberry. Normally I love a Pineapple-Vanilla Swirl Dole Whip Float and use the vanilla to balance out the tart. I could have used the same buffer here.
Once I got to the Strawberry Fanta mixed with the Strawberry Dole Whip, I enjoyed it more. And the light-up Headless Horseman key chain is adorable! If you’re a strawberry fan, go for it. If you’re not, I would skip it.
Grape and Orange Cotton Candy
You can find this Halloween-themed cotton candy at various Popcorn carts in the Magic Kingdom. This one was at the entrance by Town Hall.
The colors are festive, but once again, it’s a taste preference. I’m not normally a fan of grape, so that was the problem for me with the purple color and the orange was very sweet. If your kids are generally cotton candy fans and would like these flavors, then $5 isn’t too much of a splurge.
Poor Unfortunate Souls Float at Storybook Treats
The Poor Unfortunate Souls float was a Villains After Hours treat that changed for fall 2020 in Magic Kingdom. Inspired by Ursula, it is Cream Cheese Soft-Serve with Raspberry Syrup and Coca-Cola. The thought was there, but the execution was too much.
The flavor is the soft serve wasn’t bad, but there was way too much syrup. It over-powered the base and just tasted like a lot of raspberry syrup. This is another example where less is more. The syrup changed the color way too purple, so it wasn’t a nice subtle raspberry.
The crown is edible and cute, but it lacked taste and is too hard. There were supposed to be other candies on top, but I don’t know if they ran out that day or what?
There are plenty delicious must-try fall treats at Walt Disney World, so hopefully this fall snack guide will help you decide where you should spend your fall dollars! And if snacks aren’t your thing, these Halloween Mickey ears may be worth your money!
