REVIEW: Cinnamon Donuts and Apple Cider Slushy from Golden Oak Outpost, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party kicked-off this past weekend at Magic Kingdom. Yes, we know it’s August, but that didn’t stop Disney (and us) from celebrating the spookiest time of year. We went to the first party and checked out a bunch of new goodies. One of our first stops was the “Cider House”. It’s really just Golden Oak Outpost, the quick service at the far reach of Frontierland. Regardless they added a cool fall-inspired menu exclusive to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
There’s also this great Headless Horseman straw clip available. These were available in Disneyland during the 2017 Halloween season, we’re happy to see they’ve made the journey across the country.
Caramel Pretzel – $4.79
We reviewed this last year when it landed at The Lunching Pad in Tomorrowland. It’s absolutely amazing. You wouldn’t expect a warm soft pretzel to play into a pretzel/Caramel combination but it does and it works amazingly well. In an effort to save stomach space for the rest of the evening’s snacks, we didn’t get the pretzel on this night.
Apple Cider Slushy – $4.99
Frozen apple juice? Almost, we guess. It tastes more like a LeFou’s brew than anything else, which makes sense because that’s apple as well. There’s a healthy topping of cinnamon sugar crystals on top to add another bit of flavor. It’s refreshing and a solid choice to get into the fall spirit.
Cinnamon Donuts – $4.99
We were kind of torn about these. Six donut holes for $5 isn’t a stellar deal, but at least they’re freshly made. Being freshly made also allowed them to ensure the donuts had a proper coating of cinnamon and that they were served hot. The batch we had were nice and warm and rather doughy. Some in our group loved it, others not so much. It feels like rolling the dice a bit if they’ll be doughy again, but we’re not sure if that’s a positive or negative. There’s a cute sticker on the bag at least!
