Nothing is easier than getting together all the hot cocoa fixings you have around the house for a Hot Cocoa Station. And for Halloween why not take it one step further by making it the centerpiece of the fun? Gather some mugs, cocoas, and toppings- like marshmallows, chocolate, sauces, and sprinkles, and set it up.

Disney Halloween Party Recipes

Dipped Oreos

Last Minute: We love the Oreos dipped in orange frosting. Tip: Microwave store-bought frosting until it’s just a little softer and you can dip the oreo in the jar. Once dipped, place the cookie on wax paper to set. Meanwhile, you can grab dark chocolate chips ( which are a little bigger than normal chips) and flip them over so the flat side is up, and glue them onto the Oreos as mickey ears with frosting. You can also use chocolate melts if you have them on hand for the mickey ears. We used our Dipped Oreos for our Nightmare Before Christmas Movie Night, complete with even more easy recipes to try!

Pumpkin Spice Macarons

Use macaron batter to create cute pumpkin Mickey’s for the season. We’ve even added pumpkin spices and frosting faces to make these a little more fun. Check out our Pumpkin Spice Mickey Macarons recipe for a showstopper treat. 

Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew Copycat Recipe

Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew Coffee Copycat Recipe 

Hold onto the Halloween season with fall flavors in your coffee. We LOVE this copycat recipe from Starbucks, perfect for the fall season. Just grab cold brew, cream and spices to make this coffee drink in a jiffy. 

Cinderella Inspired Pumpkin Chai Latte Recipe

Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte Recipe

We couldn’t rightfully say it was fall without trying a billion recipes for pumpkin spice lattes to get us through the busy holiday season and all those parties! We love this Cinderella-inspired Pumpkin Chai Latte for something easy. Just heat up a milk of your choice, add some chai tea, pumpkin and spices and you’re golden. Perfect for harried days when you need a break. 

Halloween Monster Cupcakes

We also love the idea of just grabbing some cake mix for monster cupcakes of all kinds! This little green monster was found at Pop Century Resort at Walt Disney World. But you can make your own at home with some cake mix, frosting, sprinkles, and candy eyes. Head to our Disney Halloween board on Pinterest for even more ideas.

Disney Halloween Music 

Last Minute: Try out our favorite Spotify Playlist for Disney Halloween Songs or check out Disney Halloween songs on Amazon Music!

We love the music at the Boo To You Halloween Parade but sometimes you need something a little more scary, fun or non-repetitive. Grab your favorite soundtracks for the best music to have on hand, you can Bluetooth from your device to your speakers. Here are our favorites

Disney Halloween Costume Ideas

Last Minute: We love costumes that are quick and easy! We already let you in on our Haunted Mansion costumes, but we’re always looking for good quick, last-minute throw-together ideas. Check out our favorite Halloween Costumes for Three and a fun way to make Winne the Pooh Costumes for a group. Lauren Conrad’s Cruella costume took a little more work than we had time to do, but chances are you have a black dress somewhere that could make this work.

Disney Halloween Pumpkin Carving Ideas

Last Minute: Make it simple. Some paint, some cardboard cut into mickey ears and you’re all set. Sometimes we get lazy. Mainly because sometimes… we just go to parties for the food. That said, we don’t necessarily always want to get all ambitious when it comes to pumpkin carving time with loads of seed and large knives. We do however still want to impress people… so sometimes we’ll paint our pumpkins instead. You can do this with paint pens, nail polish, or whatever paint you have laying around the house.

Disney Halloween Merch

Disney Halloween Decorations

Last Minute: Set up your Disney mugs as vases for orange flowers or as little stands for mini pumpkins. Trying to figure out all the ways we can cut corners so we have enough money left over for Christmas gifts, later on, we many times will make our own decorations. Mind you, they usually look stellar, but still – they are homemade and cheap. We really liked the printed Disney Villain Wanted posters, and taking any ol’ Christmas balls, and a mickey hat from the parks for this wreath. Take a look at the best new Disney Halloween Merchandise to dress up your home.

DIY Haunted Mansion Mantle

And of course, we also love pulling together things we didn’t know we had to make something new! Check out our latest Disney Halloween Decor DIY honoring Haunted Mansion! Complete with a fancy wreath and spooky webs.
