Best Treat at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

 

This past week I attended Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom park in Walt Disney World! This Halloween Party is a separately ticketed event that takes place on select nights throughout the fall season in Magic Kingdom. This event is family friendly and focuses more on the fun side of Halloween! It is the perfect balance of spooky thrills mixed with cute decorations and fun costumes! There is something for everyone!

 

 

An iconic part of Halloween for many of us is candy and all things involving sweets and treats! At Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party you will have the opportunity to actually trick or treat in the Magic Kingdom! Guests of all ages can feel like a kid again as they visit special treat locations throughout the park and receive candy and other yummy snack items.

 

 

In addition to stocking up on candy and treats from the complimentary treat locations around the park, you can also purchase specialty treats. These specialty treats are exclusively available just during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. I tried a few of these specialty desserts and there was one particular one that stood out to me as my favorite!

 

 

My favorite dessert of this year’s 2019 Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party was the Haunted Mansion inspired wedding cake! This cake was meant to look like a small personal size version of the bride from the Haunted Mansion Constance’s wedding cake! The dessert is named “Constance’s for Better or For Worse Wedding Cake” This treat is a Halloween Party Exclusive! It can be purchased at the Liberty Square Popcorn Cart.

 

 

This dessert is a citrus-scented cake with raspberry Bavarian cream, white chocolate glaze, icing pearls, flowers, and is topped with a chocolate axe. This cake had a moose consistency and was very light and decadent.

 

Every aspect of this treat made me a fan! From the fun theming inspired by my favorite Magic Kingdom attraction – to the fact that it was the most delicious and unique tasting treat I enjoyed on my vacation! Be sure to say “I do” to this cake when you visit Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this year! Contact your Kingdom Magic Vacations Travel Planner today to plan your next adventure.

Everything You Need To Know About The Disney Dining Plan!

 

 

So you’re planning for your Walt Disney World vacation and trying to make a budget for how much money you will spend in while in Disney World.  One of the biggest expenses you will have is food for your family.  One way to make sure that your food is budgeted in before you even leave is to add on the Disney Dining Plan.  This plan is available for resort guests who book a Resort Hotel Package.

 

 

The Disney Dining Plan will purchase you a certain number of meals for each day of your vacation.  Each person on your reservation will receive an allotment of quick service meals, which are like your fast food meals, table service or sit down meals, and snacks.  The number of meals you get will depend on the Dining Plan that you choose.  There are three plans to choose from, The Quick Service Dining Plan, The Regular Dining Plan and the Deluxe Dining Plan.  Let us take a look at what each plan offers and the price currently for 2019 so you can determine if one of these plans works best for your family and how you usually like to eat.

 

Quick Service Dining Plan

-2 quick service meals

-2 snacks

-1 refillable mug

Cost is $52.50 per night for Adults 10 year and older and $23.78 for children 3-9 years of age

 

Regular Dining Plan

-1 table-service meal

-1 quick-service meal

-2 snacks

-1 refillable mug

Cost is $75.49 per night for Adults 10 years and older and $27.98 for children 3-9 years of age

 

Deluxe Dining Plan

-3 meals which can be any combination of table-service and quick-service

-2 snacks

-1 refillable mug

Cost is $116.25 per night for Adults 10 years and older and $43.49 for children 3-9 years of age

 

If you purchase the dining plan it will be very easy to use.  Your MagicBand or card that Disney gives you when you book your trip will have all your credits loaded on it and will electronically monitor what you use during your vacation.  At the end of each meal your receipt you receive will show you the number of meals remaining for each room on your booking.  This will help you keep track of you balance.  You can redeem your meals and snacks in any order during your trip until your balance is zero or until midnight of the night you check out.

 

 

At certain times of the year, Disney will run a promotion that includes a Free Disney Dining Package with your resort stay.  If this interests you then you will want to be in contact with your Kingdom Magic Vacations Travel Planner so that when this offer becomes available they can let you know as soon as possible because the number of these packages are limited when released.

 

 

I hope that this gives you a better understanding of the Disney Dining Package and can help you make a decision if the package works for you and can help you budget your next Walt Disney World trip.

You always have your classic staple Disney snacks such as the Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars, Churros, popcorn… ext. There are many iconic items that you can find at Disney year after year! Additionally, recently Disney has been creating many wonderful limited addition and specialty snacks that are making fans go wild! Many of these new snacks are very unique and very adorable! It’s like these snacks were made for Instagram pics!

Today I want to share with you my personal favorite top 5 Disney World snacks, both classic snacks and new Disney treats! Let’s get started!

 

  1. Mickey Premium Bar

This first favorite of mine is a classic! You can’t go wrong with a Mickey Premium ice cream bar! These treats are available at practically ever Disney snack cart and most quick service locations throughout all of Walt Disney World! I love that creamy rich vanilla ice cream coated in smooth delicious chocolate! It is my favorite ice cream treat of all time! And what makes it better? It is shaped like the main mouse himself!

 

 

  1. Dole Whip

My next snack is another classic Disney icon, the dole ship! This treat is dole pineapple soft serve! I love how fruity and tropical this item taste, yet it is still so rich and creamy! Dole Whips are actually dairy-free which makes this item also serve as a very refreshing treat to enjoy on those super-hot Florida days.

 

 

  1. New Flavors of Dole Whip

The traditional pineapple Dole Whip is such a well-loved Disney snack! Recently Disney has introduced several new specialty flavors of dole whip that a served as a limited time or seasonal release! The one I have been really wanting to try is the “Hei-Hei Cone’! This cone features both the traditional pineapple Dole Whip as well as a brand-new raspberry Dole Whip! The cone is so cute! It Is themed to look like Hei-Hei, the chicken from Disney’s Moana! Another new version of Dole Whip is ‘The Lost Princess Cone,’ it is a lemon Dole Whip themed to Rapunzel! It even features edible flowers just like the flowers in her hair! Another new flavor recently released is the mango Dole Whip! This flavor can be found in the “Adventure is Out There’ Cone, which is Inspired by Disney Pixar’s up. I tried this cone out for myself on my recent visit to Magic Kingdom and absolutely loved it!

 

 

  1. Mickey Rice Crispy Treat

Another go-to Disney snack staple for me is the Mickey rice crispy treats! I love grabbing one of these to take back to the room and enjoy at night! What is really fun is that Disney actually creates many different variations of the Mickey Rice Crispy Treat! I am constantly seeing new toppings and combinations! They also make adorably themed Rice Crispy Treats decorated based off of different Disney characters and themed seasonally to various holiday!

 

 

  1. Mickey Apple

I love the Disney World caramel and chocolate cover apples! This is another classic Disney treat that can be found in many sweet shops throughout Walt Disney World! Similarly to the Rice Crispy Treats, Disney is always releasing new variations of the Mickey Apples! And New character themed apples! My personal favorite variation of a Mickey Apple is the dark chocolate, caramel and sea salt! The sea salt was the best touch! A great tip about the Mickey apples is that you can actually ask a cast member to cut the apple for you when you purchase it! This makes eating your treat in the park a lot easier! And easier for sharing!

 

 

I hope my list inspired you to check out some new Disney snacks on your next visit to the park! As always be sure to contact your Kingdom Magic Vacations Travel Planner to plan your next trip to Walt Disney World to any travel destination you are dreaming of visiting next!
