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. First we checked out some cinnamon-based treats at Golden Oak Outpost (you can read that review here). Pecos Bill was next with some spicy nachos and a dessert that’s to die for, full review here. Sleepy Hollow changed-up their pumpkin spice waffle to include more The Nightmare Before Christmas theme, we had a religious experience with the waffle here. We ate some terrible Haunted Mansion Pastries. Brand new for the party this year is a Maleficent Waffle Cone from Storybook Treats in Fantasyland.
Maleficent Waffle Cone – $5.29
Surprise! Ice cream melts quick in 98 degrees (not the band) and 64% humidity. It also looks nothing like the picture, but I don’t know what that’s surprising at this point. If you remember the Peter Pan Float that’s also served at Storybook Treats, you’ll be familiar with the green ice cream. It’s a key lime flavor (advertised only as lime here) and will be enjoyed by those who like such flavors. This one is on the sweeter side thanks to the colorful topping. If you don’t like lime, then you might be better off with a different treat from the Magic Kingdom. Adding the ice cream in a black waffle cone with two chocolate horns make this not only a photogenic treat, but a tasty one too.
