‘Limited Time Magic’ Spotlight on Halloween Headwear at Disney Parks

posted on October 4th, 2013 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


With the start of October, I’m turning the “Limited Time Magic” spotlight on Halloween headwear at Disney Parks. If you are looking for an instant costume, a decorative hat or headband may be one of the simplest ways to join the festivities. Here are a few of my favorite Halloween-themed items this year.
“'Limited

I loved carving pumpkins for Halloween when I was younger. That is probably why I love the pumpkin ear hat designed by Disney Design Group artist Mark Seppala. I spotted this one on a ghost in Gateway Gifts at Epcot after a day of fun with my son at the 2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. The best part about this hat is the hidden image of Chip ‘n’ Dale that is found under the pumpkin’s topper.

In California, you can find this hat at the following Disneyland Resort locations:

In Florida, look for this pumpkin ear hat in these Walt Disney World Resort merchandise shops:

You can also find the ear hat on our Disney Parks online store.

A Mouse ear headband, particularly the Minnie Mouse sequined headband with a red bow, is one of the most popular headwear items at Disney Parks. This year, you will find two different Halloween-themed headbands including one with purple and green sequins.

Finally, I love what the headwear team did with the four new Disney Villain headbands that were recently introduced at Disney Parks. These headbands were also designed by Disney artist Mark Seppala. My favorite is the headband with the glow-in-the-dark apples inspired by Walt Disney’s animated classic, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”

With all the Friday the 13th fun planned on both coasts – at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland park at the Disneyland Resort, you know there are tempting treats involved.

Disneyland fun starts at 8 p.m. in Town Square on Main Street, U.S.A., where you can “Party Like a Villain” – go ahead, splurge on Spooky Kooky Gingerbread Cookies and pumpkin beignets, and sip an Eerie Green Frozen Lemonade. They’re only available that evening as part of the “Limited Time Magic”.

The fun moves over to New Orleans Square Railroad Station for the Unleash the Villains Dance Party that goes until the 13th hour (1 a.m.). And there are plenty of wickedly good treats to keep you going:

French Market Restaurant will be serving fiery meatloaf sliders with Cajun house chips, Oreo mousse “coffin,” and drinks in a Haunted Mansion holiday souvenir hot mug.

Treats, Not Tricks, for Friday the 13th 'Limited Time Magic': Pumpkin Beignets with Vanilla Crème Anglaise

Café Orleans is bringing back the pumpkin beignets with vanilla crème anglaise for dipping.

Royal Street Veranda offers hot pumpkin fritters, pumpkin espresso, drinks in the Haunted Mansion Holiday souvenir mug and Spooky Kooky Gingerbread Cookies.

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, it’s “Hades’ Hangout” right in the center of the park, where you won’t want to resist the temptation to try a surprise specialty beverage mixed just for the evening. (Pair that with a Jack Skellington souvenir popcorn bucket for walk around noshing.) The Spooky Kooky Gingerbread Cookie is the evening’s sweet “Limited Time Magic” Treat.

Eat, drink and have some fiendish fun, Disney style!
