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. The next location on the list was Sleepy Hollow for the famous pumpkin spice waffle sundae!
Jack Skellington Cake Push Pop – $4.99
This was available in 2017 as well. Sleepy Hollow went full ‘Nightmare’ themed this year with two desserts themed to the movie. The cake push pop arrives with layers upon layers of sweet confection that aren’t necessarily kept together by any means. You push the pop up a bit and the entire thing falls over the edges making consumption a daunting task. If you do attempt to eat it there’s a point where it’s too rich for one person to finish. It’s not our cup of tea and doesn’t hold a candle to the other magical dessert here.
Zero Waffle Sundae – $6.49
There’s actually two waffles, not zero. Those familiar with The Nightmare Before Christmas movie will recognize the ghost dog on the waffles as Zero. He’s a good doggo who brings along two warm and tasty pumpkin spice waffles with his image portrayed. The waffles are spectacular and taste like fall, even on August 17th in 97 degree heat with 64% humidity.
To cope with the heat outside, and to make it a true sundae, there’s a big scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with whipped cream and festive sprinkles. Then there’s a big caramel drizzle over the entire concoction. If you get one dessert at the party make this it, it’s absolutely fantastic and works on every level. This glorious creation will also be available daily from October 1st through Halloween during normal park hours, so you don’t even need a party ticket at that point to enjoy this.
