A ghost may not actually follow you home after you ride Haunted Mansion, but we can almost guarantee you’ll be dreaming of all these delicious treats before you hurry back for your next Disneyland visit! Disney has just revealed all of the amazing limited-time menu items available in celebration of Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary, and we’re so excited to share them with you. Take a look at some of the photo-worthy eats and sweets you can try all month long starting August 9.
Rancho Del Zocalo in Frontierland
At Rancho del Zocalo, you can enjoy the Long Forgotten Duelist Tacos: two fry bread tacos featuring grilled fajita beef and braised butter chicken served with Mexican rice and pickled vegetables. These look delicious, much like the other foods at Rancho del Zocalo, so we’re excited to try them.
River Belle Terrace in Frontierland
This is a fantastic spot to sit outside and people watch while enjoying a delicious meal. And with new Haunted Mansion menu items, what could be better? Try the Sliders Materialize! – a spicy pork belly slider (served on toasted brioche and topped with crisp cabbage slaw and pomegranate vinaigrette) and savory pork belly slider (served on toasted brioche with black pepper bacon mayo, butter lettuce, cherry tomatoes, and a crispy bacon “spike”). Also be sure to try the “Hitchhiking” Ghost Blue Velvet Cake, pictured in the header image of this post.
Hungry Bear Restaurant in Critter Country
Hungry Bear is serving up a couple haunting new dishes, both of which are available using Mobile Order through August 25. You can choose from Dead-cadent Funnel Cake (house funnel cake with a decadent brownie, white chocolate raspberry ice cream and chocolate pearls, pictured below) or The Caretaker (crispy pork belly seasoned with house spices, layered with BBQ sauce, grilled onions, cheese sauce, house-made pickle, and crispy slaw, and served on a potato roll with french fries).
Harbour Galley in Critter Country
We’re always looking for the best coffee in Disney Parks, and this one looks like it could be our new favorite as soon as we try it. The 13th-Hour Brew is iced coffee with vanilla cream (how delicious does that sound?). You can also order Ghost Mariner’s Seafood Boil, which includes Cajun buttered shrimp with red potatoes, corn, and andouille sausage. Harbour Galley has amazing food year-round, so we hope these live up to the restaurant’s reputation.
Churro carts at Critter Country and New Orleans Square
We cannot get enough of the themed churros at Disney Parks these days! Choose from the bride or groom churros with either vanilla and sugar or dark and milk chocolate; both are to die for!
Blue Bayou Restaurant in New Orleans Square
Blue Bayou never lets us down with its amazing atmosphere and seasonal menu choices. This month, you can try We’ve BEAN Dying to MEAT You! (spiced stew of pork sausage, oxtails, and kidney beans with Lousiana popcorn rice), Dynamite Seafood Hush Puppies (spicy hush puppies with shrimp, tasso ham, corn, Bloody Mary aioli, and greens, pictured below), or Opera Singer Cake (almond sponge cake with coffee, chocolate ganache, chocolate glaze, coffee buttercream, Chantilly cream, and raspberry sauce).
Café Orleans in New Orleans Square
Café Orleans always brings some awesome and unique menu items throughout the year. We can’t wait to try the Sarah ‘Sally’ Slater’s Swamp Fries, with crawfish étouffée atop sweet potato fries with chorizo, clams, tomatoes, sweet corn, and green onion (these are pictured below). For dessert, feast on the Swinging Wake Cake, layered chocolate and vanilla sponge cake with caramel-banana filling, caramel buttercream frosting, and a sugar candle.
Mint Julep Bar in New Orleans Square
We just shared the watermelon mint julep and sour cherry beignets, and now we’re gearing up for all-new flavors of our favorite Disneyland treats. We can’t wait to taste the Blackberry Midnight Julep, with blackberry, citrus, and mint and a lychee “moon.” We’ll also order the “Honey…I Do” Beignets (Available through Sept. 5) – sweet beignets topped with honey praline and powdered sugar. How delicious do those desserts sound on a cool California night?
Royal Street Veranda in New Orleans Square
It wouldn’t be a food tour of New Orleans Square without a stop at Royal Street Veranda. Be sure to try Pickwick Ghost Punch (fruit and citrus juices with sherbet) and Professor Phineas Plump’s “Cure-All” Fritters (pimento cheese fritters with ghost pepper ranch dressing).
A few items not pictured include the Haunted Mansion Crispy Treat available at Hunny Spot in Critter Country and the Wedding Cake available in French Market in New Orleans Square.
