What’s New at Disney World’s Hotels: Mickey BEIGNET Ears(!), Hocus Pocus Cupcakes, and More!

We know this is a “what’s new at Disney World’s hotels” post, but we’ve gotta start out with an honest confession — we’ve been thinking about Halloween all week!

Disney’s Contemporary Resort

We have to blame Disney for that and their Halfway to Halloween event, which brought us spooky snacks that you can get RIGHT NOW, announcements about the return of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party AND Oogie Boogie Bash, and a sneak peek at all the new merchandise we’ll see this year for Halloween. But it’s not all Halloween at Disney World just yet. This week, we’ve spent some time at Disney World’s hotels and there are lots of updates from these spots, including news about BEIGNET EARS?! WHAT?! Let’s go through all the news from the resorts right now!

We first saw the Star Spangled Mickey Tee two years ago (so it’s not NEW to Disney World entirely), but now it’s back and available again for $29.99 if you’ve been on the hunt for it.
