There’s Another Candy Corn Cupcake in Disney World. But How Does It Stack Up Against the Rest?

We still fondly look back on the days we would hide our Halloween candy so we could savor it long after trick-or-treating. But, nowadays we’d rather just indulge on all the spooky snacks and sips that have been popping up in Disney World instead! 😉

Halloween Treats at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club

Although pumpkin spice and even poison apples have practically been the poster children for Halloween treats in the parks, there’s something just so nostalgic about candy corn this time of the year. And Disney’s been serving up looks with Candy Corn Witch Ears and mixing up candy corn treats in the parks and resorts for guests of all ages to enjoy!

We couldn’t help but wonder if the newest Halloween treat over at the re-opened Yacht and Beach Club Resort would live up to its previous candy corn competitors! And, in the name of all Halloween candy fans out there, we decided to go find out just how good the Candy Corn Cupcake is for ourselves.

Candy Corn Cupcake

The Market at Ale & Compass and Beach Club Marketplace have become two of our top spots to visit when we’re on the hunt for new Disney cupcakes. So, we weren’t too surprised to see that Fall had swept across the quick-stops, bringing Halloween treats along with it! Along with the Candy Corn Cupcake, the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts are also featuring a Pumpkin Whoopie Pie AND a Tiramisu (and we’ll be bringing you reviews for those soon).

Candy Corn Cupcake

But back to the task at hand! We recently enjoyed a chocolate Minnie Candy Corn Cupcake at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort (there’s a vanilla Mickey version there, too), finding it to be a quality cake with a simple yet classic flavor profile. The version here at Yacht and Beach also presents a basic flavor: it’s a vanilla cupcake with layered buttercream colored to resemble candy corn (of course!), and chocolate Mickey ears to match.

But here’s the thing…

Candy Corn Cupcake

Simply put: this particular take on the Candy Corn Cupcake wasn’t quite as good as the one we ate on Disney’s BoardWalk. We can gladly cheer for those simple flavors when the cake itself is good. But since the cake here was, unfortunately, not as fresh and even a bit dry, it didn’t serve to elevate the classic vanilla flavor, and instead it was.. well, ho-hum.

Candy Corn Cupcake

But don’t forget! We’ve already mentioned that this was NOT the only treat we tried here at Yacht & Beach! We promised you that Tiramisu review AND we’ve got a Pumpkin Whoopie Pie to check out, too! The story doesn’t end here, so stay with us…

In the meantime, if you do really want to reminisce about the good ole’ days of trick-or-treating with the Candy Corn Cupcake, it’s available now through October 31st! And, if you’re craving more Halloween goodies (why wouldn’t you be??), we’ll be taking you with us all around Disney World throughout the season for more frightfully fun treats!

Add a little magic to your holidays with this sparkly Halloween Cupcake at the Disney Resorts!

There’s a NEW Over-the-Top Halloween Shake at Beaches & Cream in Disney World!

Pumpkin spice lovers, now is your time to shine!

Pumpkin-spiced Mickey Waffle Sundae sign

From Rice Krispie Treats to Pumpkin Spice Waffle Sundaes, there are plenty of pumpkin spice goodies to try around Disney World this season! And now, another treat has arrived that pumpkin fans are gonna want to try!

Beaches & Cream Soda Shop is known for its iconic ice cream concoctions, most notably the gigantic Kitchen Sink. And while the new seasonal offering we tried today isn’t quite as large as the Kitchen Sink, it’s still absolutely adorable.

Beaches and Cream

Today, at Beaches & Cream, we got to try the Pumpkin Spiced Butter Pecan Shake, which is made with pumpkin spiced butter pecan ice cream, chocolate sauce, and orange icing and it’s topped with a pumpkin cupcake and chocolate crispy pearls.

The cupcake and little decorations on the top of this creation form the shape of a Mickey pumpkin, which was absolutely adorable. The rim of the glass is also covered with some spooktacular sprinkles.

Pumpkin Spiced Butter Pecan Shake

The cupcake itself is a regular vanilla cupcake, which was fine, but we wish it would have been pumpkin flavored to add even more of a fall feeling to this treat!

Pumpkin Spiced Butter Pecan Shake

When we tried to remove the cupcake from the shake, it wasn’t the prettiest sight — sorry little Mickey pumpkin!

Pumpkin Spiced Butter Pecan Shake

Most of the cupcake actually ended up staying in the shake, but we liked that. The mixture of the cupcake in the ice cream actually made the ice cream better and gave it another layer of flavor.

Pumpkin Spiced Butter Pecan Shake

In terms of the shake itself, the pumpkin flavor is definitely the most prominent.

Pumpkin Spiced Butter Pecan Shake

We couldn’t really taste the butter pecan, but we still enjoyed this fall treat.

A Cast Member we spoke to also mentioned that these are available at the Beaches & Cream To Go Window, so that’s a quick way to get this fun fall treat on the go.

You can snag the Pumpkin Spiced Butter Pecan Shake for $15 now through October 31st!

This Halloween Tiramisu in Disney World Is So Good It’s Making Our Bones Rattle!

In honor of the Halloween season, tons of treats around Disney World have received a festive makeover!

Candy Corn Minnie Mouse Cupcake!

A bunch of seasonal snacks have already arrived, but we still have more to share! And the lastest treat we tried puts a spooky twist on classic tiramisù!

Available at The Market at Ale & Compass and Beach Club Marketplace at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts, this seasonal Tiramisù is dressed in its Halloween best! You can pick it up for $5.49.

Tiramisu

This treat consists of classic tiramisù with coffee flavor, a chocolate pretzel skeleton, and a marshmallow skull. That spooky tombstone at the top? That’s ladyfinger!

Tiramisu

This treat was actually better than we were expecting. It was a little soggy, which is hard to avoid with tiramisu, but not so much so that it wasn’t yummy. The flavor is honestly spectacular. There’s a STRONG coffee flavor and we’re suckers for that taste!

Tiramisu

As you can see the toppings are super cute but they don’t necessarily add anything in terms of flavor. Still, we LOVE the ladyfinger tombstone. Overall, this treat is cute, creative, AND fun.

Tiramisu

If you’d like to give this spooky treat a try, you can snag it from now through October 31st!

Could These Magic Kingdom Permits Point to Potential Ride Refurbishments?

We’ve got some interesting Disney World construction news today!

Big Thunder Mountain in Disney World

We spend a lot of time spotting construction in the Disney parks. Just yesterday we found some new construction in EPCOT’s Italy Pavilion. To be honest, we’re pretty used to construction in EPCOT, but it’s more surprising when we hear tell of projects in Magic Kingdom! Could these permits point to upcoming ride refurbishments? 

We were perusing Disney World building permits (which we do a lot), when we spotted two new permits, filed September 10th and 11th, for the address coded to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Magic Kingdom to “provide labor, material, and/or electrical for construction.” Oooh interesting!

Permit Screenshot

It’s an internal Disney permit which means the document doesn’t have too much information about what the work entails. Typically, this wouldn’t be enough info for us to be interested, but Big Thunder Mountain Railroad was supposed to close for refurbishment during the closures! Is it time Disney caught up on this work? Maybe!

Big Thunder Railroad Mountain queue entrance

And Big Thunder isn’t the only classic attraction having some work done! We also spotted this permit to “remove and reinstall graphics” at the address coded to “it’s a small world!” This work sounds like a quick shape-up of some of the graphics on or in the building, so we’re not sure we’ll even notice it being done. Still, it’s interesting to note that this opening-day attraction is st to get a little TLC.

Permit Screenshot

We’ll be keeping an eye out to see if any work starts on these two attractions, and we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we see anything — ESPECIALLY if that Big Thunder work means a ride closure! Stay tuned!
