It’s officially October and in honor of the season, Walt Disney World is offering a series of all-new spooky celebrations and merchandise at Disney Springs. This includes a Halloween Soiree at The Edison, seasonal sweets and treats from Amorette’s Patisserie and Goofy’s Candy Co., and ghoulish costumes and accessories from The Disney Corner.
As we previously reported, The Edison will be celebrating Halloween with A Halloween Soiree in honor of the 25th anniversary of Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” The event will feature a wild and chilling assortment of entertainment including flying aerialists, stilt-walking skeletons, eclectic dancers, live music and more.
The event will also feature a costume contest and small plates and signature sips inspired by the beloved film. Doors open at 7:30 PM and tickets are $85 per person. Attendees must be at least 21 years old.
Nothing says Halloween like creepy and sweet treats, which can be found this Halloween season at The Ganachery. Choose between a Jack Skellington or Minnie Mouse Witch piñata filled with chocolate and goodies. The Ganachery will also feature chocolate skulls and festive ganache flavors including salted caramel, orange cranberry, and pumpkin spice latte.
Over at Amorette’s Patisserie, you can find the Mickey Pumpkin Macaron and Fall Harvest Petite Cake, which is made of cinnamon and nutmeg chiffon cake layered with salted caramel mousse, cranberry cherry pate de fruit, and roasted hazelnuts.
Goofy’s Candy Co. and Candy Cauldron will show their Halloween spirit by offering pumpkin and “poison” specialty apples, mummy and pumpkin cake pops, themed crispy treats and fall cookies and cupcakes.
If you’re feeling cold and spooked from all of these chilling options, Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant has just the thing to warm you up: Pumpkin Irish Coffee. This hot delight is brewed with fresh espresso, topped with whipped cream and paired with a pumpkin crème brûlée tart.
Another warm beverage offering from Disney Springs can be found at Starbucks, where they will be featuring their famous pumpkin spice latte, in addition to a maple pecan version.
For even more sweet offerings, visit Sprinkles for BOO Box full of caramel apple cupcakes or try a pumpkin shake from D-Luxe Burger. There’s also the Autumn Smash (an elixir made with spiced rum, lemon juice, peach nectar, simple syrup and a touch of cinnamon) and some hard ciders, which can be found at Dockside Margaritas and other venues throughout Disney Springs. For a complete list of these offerings, pick up a WonderFall Flavors at Disney Springs guide at the Disney Springs Welcome Center.
No Halloween celebration can be complete without hauntingly fun costumes and accessories. The Disney Corner will be offering a selection of princess, pirate and superhero costumes, which all come in sizes for kids with select options for adults. DisneyStyle will feature everyone’s favorite Disney character costumes, and you can visit the Dress Shop on Cherry Tree Lane to find a new design inspired by Sally from “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
Throughout the shopping center, Disney Springs will have Halloween backdrops and decor for guests to snap selfies with. This is in addition to silly scarecrows, massive pumpkins, spooky stilt walkers and Zombeats Drum Corps, a zombie-filled troupe of percussionists.
