If you are a frequent visitor of Disney California Adventure Park at Disneyland Resort,i chances are you have stumbled across the Studio Catering Truck in Hollywood Land. This food truck often serves up some seasonal and themed offerings that we always love to try.

This season, Fanta moved into the Studio Catering Truck, offering some delicious food items with a Fanta twist!

Per the Halloween Time 2021 foodie guide shared to Disney Parks Blog, the following seasonal dishes are available for purchase:

Studio Catering Truck (mobile order available)

  • Hawaiian BBQ Chicken with Fanta pineapple-infused fried rice and soy-ginger glaze
  • Ghost Pepper Potato Bites – Potato bites, ghost pepper cheese sauce, smoky bacon, and pickled jalapeños
  • The Backlot Carnitas Nachos with house-made tortilla chips, red pepper cheese sauce, chipotle crema, and green onions
  • Plant-based Backlot Nachos – Soy chorizo with house-made tortilla chips, dairy-free cheese, and crema topped with green onions

Appropriately coinciding with the Halloween Time spooky season at the Disneyland Resort, Studio Catering Co. featuring Fanta actually has a subtle under-the-sea theme. And, actually, it truly does appear to be inspired by Ursula, the sea witch from the popular 1989 Walt Disney Animation Studios film, The Little Mermaid.

Of course, being huge Descendants fans, we can’t help but think of Uma when we walk past the truck. If you have also seen the films in the Descendants, franchise, you know that Uma is Ursula’s daughter, and although she is not quite the sea witch that Ursula is, she certainly is a force to be reckoned with.

The official Disneyland Resort website does not currently say that the theme of the Studio Catering Truck is part of the Halloween Time offerings at Disney California Adventure, but the sea witch inspiration is, of course, quite noticeable to Disney fans. It’s even called the Eel-lectric Lounge. Just see for yourself!

By the way…while dining at Disney California Adventure, I ordered the loaded potato bites. If you like spicy food, these are next-level spooky spicy (and yet still delicious!).
