It may still be August on the calendar, but Walt Disney World has already busted out the fall decor and Halloween festivities for its guests. Visitors to the popular vacation destination can not only enjoy Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party on select nights through Nov. 1, but also a collection of new and delicious snacks that celebrate the season.

And foodies will rejoice because there is a new cupcake available at the Magic Kingdom: the Amuck Cupcake!

The cupcake is a tribute to the classic Disney movie “Hocus Pocus” and can be found at Main Street USA’s Main Street Bakery through the fall season.

Popular Disney food website Disney Food Blog couldn’t wait to share the spooky cupcake with Disney foodies on Instagram!

Where do we even start with this beautiful confection? How about with the black cauldron sitting on top? It’s actually a chocolate cake topped with buttercream icing! So, you get two cakes in one with the Amuck Cupcake.

Standing over the cauldron is a white chocolate ganache version of the Sanderson Sisters, ready to cast a spell on your tastebuds.

Once inside the actual cupcake, more sweet surprises await! It is a trick-or-treat cupcake, after all. You’ll find peanut butter chips, chocolate candy bits, toffee and caramel sauce. In other words, you can experience an entire Halloween candy experience in one big bite.

But don’t expect to eat the whole thing as quickly as that implies. Instagrammer @laurensmagicalvacations posted, “It’s HUGE! 3 of us shared it! And so delicious! ”

Online reviews have been generally positive about the $7.99 Amuck Cupcake’s flavor. Instagrammer @cheycheychenaynay even called it, “Easily the best cake ever!”

However, bloggers and fans warn those looking to fall under the cupcake’s spell to arm themselves with extra napkins. The size and stuffed nature of the dessert make it extra messy!

If you’re a “Hocus Pocus” fan, you’re in luck this Halloween. You can definitely buy merch for the movie that will probably last you a little longer than a cupcake from Disney World, although these items probably aren’t going to be as tasty.

For example, check out these cute Hocus Pocus salt and pepper shakers, available at Spirit Halloween for $9.99:

How about a cozy covering to warm up those cooling autumn evenings? This officially licensed Spirit Halloween Hocus Pocus fleece blanket retails for $24.99, although it’s currently out of stock.


This super-cute Hocus Pocus picture frame would look great in a Halloween-decorated home! It’s $19.99 on Amazon.
