‘Fall’ in Love with Pumpkin-Inspired Delights at Downtown Disney

Living in Florida, fall is my favorite time of year. Temperatures start to dip, the humidity (sort of) takes a break and autumn is in the air. Fall has already arrived here at Downtown Disney – and I know this because I’m surrounded by pumpkin-tinged treats. See a few of my top picks below:


  • Pumpkin Spice Caramel Squares from Ghirardelli – you can only find these bites of amazingness in September and October, so stock up while you can. My fellow Disney Parks Blog author Jennifer Fickley-Baker introduced me to these mouth-watering morsels and I love/hate her for it!
  • Pumpkin Shampoo and Conditioner Bars from Basin – with potassium, alpha-carotene, zinc, beta-carotene and lutein, they make your hair strong, soft and silky – a perfect complement to any Halloween costume you may be considering. (Rumor has it Basin also has a “Pumpkin Patch” soap, too. So fun.)
  • Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks – this caffeinated favorite needs no explanation; my motto: once you’ve taken your first sip of the season, cute boots, bulky sweaters and festive scarves are fair game, no matter what the thermometer reads.
  • Sweet Treats from Goofy’s Candy Company and Candy Cauldron – luckily, we’ve got eight weeks to sample the latest concoctions from my go-to candy shops. First up? Pumpkin fudge. (Review: Amazing.)


Keep up with the latest seasonal offerings from Downtown Disney via our Twitter handle, @WDWDowntown. In the meantime, tell me which pumpkin product you can’t wait to try in the comments below.


Happy fall, y’all! (I’m originally from Georgia, so I can say that.)


  • James’ wife here – You had me with the first photo of the Ghiradelli pumpkin spice/caramel, it’s all icing on the proverbial cake from there – YUM! 🙂

  • These look delicious. But would be more delicious in a north face jacket and Ugg boots.

  • Ahh, it all looks SO yummy! Can’t wait to pick of some of these next month 🙂

    • Megan, I know, right? If it’s too hard to pick just one, I suggest sharing with friends and trying them all. (You’ll be walking a lot during your vacation, so I say it’s okay to splurge a smidge!) Happy tasting!
