Halloween is just around the corner, and the Disney parks are releasing some fun novelty drinkware and popcorn buckets to celebrate, according to the Disney Parks Blog. This Poison Apple Stein will be available with a beverage from several locations at Disneyland, while at WDW, it will be found at Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.
The Vampire Mickey Premium Popcorn bucket will be available in early October at popcorn carts throughout Disneyland and WDW. This year, the Zero Premium Popcorn bucket will feature a glow in the dark Zero and will be available at Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom.

On a recent visit to Magic Kingdom, I met up with a couple of friends who skipped breakfast in their excitement to get to the park. After a quick ride on Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, they were ready for and early lunch. Since we were in Tomorrowland, we made our way over to Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe.
After placing our order and receiving our food, we grabbed front row seats to be inundated with punny songs and jokes by Sonny Eclipse. One of my friends ordered the Barbecued Pork Sandwich, which comes with a choice of Apple Slices, Green Beans, or French Fries. This sandwich is fairly standard menu fare around property, and usually the top choice when pitted against a burger or nuggets for Matt. In fact, he ordered this last year, and I opted for the Green Beans with my lunch that day (which I’ll note were a bit overcooked for my liking, but still a nice choice if you’re French-fried out).
The last time we went to Pinocchio Village Haus, it wasn’t a great experience. Fast forward a little over a year, and we found ourselves at the restaurant under different circumstances: heavy rains and a hungry party of 7 including two kids. There were few guests in line to order food, but as you can imagine, virtually all of the tables were taken. We managed to snag a table for four and squeeze ourselves in. Of all the times they could really use a cast member allowing only guests with food access to seating… So you can imagine the chaotic scene.
I grabbed some quick food photos while everyone was getting settled. Matt ordered the Chicken Alfredo, which comes with a Caesar Side Salad. The chicken look to be the same as what is served on their entree Caesar Salad, which isn’t a good thing based on our last experience. Matt did put a good dent into the dish, especially after adding a bit of crushed red pepper and Parmesan for a flavor boost, but left a fair portion behind. I think it was mostly in part to the fact that we were the least hungry of everyone grabbing dinner. If he’s in the mood for pasta, he’ll choose Mama Melrose’s at Hollywood Studios before returning here.
