#NEWS I know we've seen some of these posted already, but here is a full list of the special Halloween themed food offerings from the Disney Parks Blog: "Fall is in the air and the Disneyland Resort is celebrating non-stop. As with any celebration, delicious tastes are part of the seasonal fun. With three special festivities during Halloween Time, including Haunted Mansion Holiday, Dia de los Muertos and the Halloween Carnival at the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree, let’s get started.
Haunted Mansion Holiday kicked off on Friday, the 13th of September, and runs through January 5 with the attraction’s traditional holiday overlay inspired by “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.” However this year, Jack has added some new magic worth multiple trips to take it all in – it might even take multiple trips to try all the seasonal tastes around the Disneyland Resort!
Here’s a sampling:
Pepper Jack Skellington Burger at Carnation Cafe, on grilled sourdough with white cheddar, pepper jack, red onions and spicy burger sauce
Halloween Wicked Grilled Chicken at Village Haus Restaurant with roasted mushrooms, Swiss cheese, arugula and spicy roasted red pepper aioli
Roasted pork tenderloin Wellington (with scotch bonnet pepper harissa sauce!) at Blue Bayou Restaurant
Crispy fish sandwich with tartar sauce and jicama-mango slaw at Hungry Bear Restaurant
Coq au vin (chicken braised with wine, bacon, mushrooms and garlic) and pumpkin beignets at Café Orleans
A generous muffuletta (a sandwich stuffed with layered meats, cheese and olive salad on a round loaf) at French Market Restaurant is served with homemade chips
Also at French Market Restaurant is the Oreo Mousse Coffin, with white chocolate mousse, Oreo crumbs and Skellington white chocolate decoration
Souvenir popcorn buckets, and an almost-too-cute-to eat seasonal cupcake
Head over to Disney California Adventure park for the seasonal Anti-Vampire Chicken Flatbread – lots of roasted garlic, of course, plus smoked Gouda cheese, mozzarella and a balsamic glaze
Then there are the pumpkin-inspired sweets you’ll find throughout the parks: pumpkin beignets, pumpkin fritters, pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins with streusel and pepita seeds, pumpkin cheesecake. And there’s the indulgent Pumpkin Minnie Demitasse in a souvenir mug with flourless chocolate cake, pumpkin and chocolate mousse, candy corn and chocolate shavings. Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue is serving snickerdoodles with vanilla ice cream, pumpkin sauce, caramel sauce and orange sugar sprinkles.
Through November 3, meet some Disney Villains as they are conjured up in a sideshow tent at the Halloween Carnival at the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree in Frontierland. Here you’ll also find a fried apple burrito, butter corn on the cob, hot dogs and candy corn cotton candy. Open daily 10:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Stop by Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Café at Disney California Adventure park and Market House on Main Street, U.S.A., in Disneyland park (beginning September 25) for Starbucks goodies. On the menu are the popular seasonal drinks such as pumpkin spice latte, salted caramel mocha and chocolate chai tea latte, along with pumpkin scones, pumpkin cream cheese muffins and pumpkin bread.
Also through November 3, Disneyland park guests can celebrate Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) at Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante in Frontierland during Halloween Time. For this spirited tribute to the Mexican holiday honoring the dead, the area features cheerful skeletons and brightly colored altars with marigolds and sugar skulls. Added to the menu just for the celebration are tamales and pumpkin flan with orange cake.
Mickey’s Halloween Party kicks off September 27 and takes place on select evenings through October 31 in Disneyland park. During Mickey’s Halloween Party, look for Monster U burgers at Tomorrowland Terrace (cheeseburger with special sauce, grilled onions and fries with “Parmesan-ranch ooze”). Also available is a cute crispy treat featuring the green eye of Mike Wazowski from “Monsters University.” The crispy treat is also at Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port, along with a Monster Mac ‘n Cheese Pizza. The Monster Mac ‘n Cheese Pizza is available throughout Halloween Time.
Lastly, available only during Halloween weekend (October 25 through November 1) at Disney California Adventure park is a pumpkin-shaped loaf of Boudin Bakery’s famous sourdough, perfect to carry home for a party! It’s only available at Pacific Wharf Café, the Disney California Adventure bread cart, Mortimer’s Market, and Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta."

Update for the week of Monday, August 25th:
Park hours: DL (9am-10pm weekdays, 9am-12am weekends); DCA (9am-9pm weekdays, 9am-10pm weekends). Since the parks are closing earlier during the week, Fantasmic will only be shown Friday-Sunday, World of Color will be shown at 9pm and the "Magical!" fireworks will be shown at 9:25pm daily (weather permitting).
FYI: this is a last full week to participate in "Legends of Frontierland" in Frontierland as it concludes on Monday, September 1st. Also, the Adventure Trading Company's last day in the jungle will be Monday, August 25 and will move onto a new adventure, so make sure to catch them!
unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet to moderately busy this week as many schools go back this week, but there's also still quite a few people getting their end of summer vacation in at the Resort before school starts after Labor Day for them. But, reminder that this weekend is the Disneyland Half Marathon, so expect crowds to pick up Thursday and/or Friday as runners and their families come in for this weekend's events. And make sure to keep an eye out for any road closures late Saturday night to mid Sunday morning if you are coming to the Resort this coming weekend!
July was arguably one of the slowest months of the year (some say the Sunday on Independence Day Weekend was the slowest day of the year). However, we saw crowd levels rise Sat Aug 2, and they've been steady through today (Aug 5). With the Socal passes coming good Aug 18, we should see good crowds throughout the end of the month. - Admin Aug 5, 2014 2:23PM
New "Music of Nashville" event coming to the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree running on weekends, starting on July 18. To read more info: click here. - BaseballMickey_CM Jul 9, 2014 11:04AM
So far this summer, Saturdays have been the quietest days of the week due to the Annual Passholder block outs. Today, wait times weren't too bad in both parks, with crowd indexes hovering around 60-70 at DL and 50-60 in DCA. - BaseballMickey_CM Jun 28, 2014 11:24PM
