Halloween time is set to kickoff at Disneyland Resort beginning September 11th. This means lots of family-friendly fun during Mickey’s Halloween Party.

This 3-course dinner will feature a bevy of bayou favorites on the menu. To begin your spooky adventure, guests are offered a choice of two appetizers. The first option is the “Beguiling” Bayou Crab Cake served with creole slaw and a tart rémoulade sauce. If crab doesn’t quite do it for you, there’s also the goat cheese Bon Coeur Tart. A crispy pastry is filled with warm, oozy melted goat cheese and presented alongside baby spinach leaves, golden beets, and thin slices of prosciutto. It’s drizzled blood-red dried cherry vinaigrette.

A trio of murderous main courses are available to kill your appetite. For the seafood lovers, there’s a sautéed Red Fish with crispy rock shrimp, Louisiana long rice, haricot vert (French green beans), and an étouffée sauce. Want something with a little more “meat on the bones?” If so, then consider the Braised Bayou Short Ribs. It comes with bleu cheese mashed potatoes, baby carrots, and a huckleberry-pinot noir reduction. There’s also the Bourbon-Glazed Chicken Breast served atop smoked-white cheddar polenta. The sides include cooked asparagus spears and a savory thyme jus.

There are also a pair of “to-die-for” desserts to conclude this frightening feast.  The first choice is Dark Chocolate Crème Brûlée with a salted caramel macaroon on the side.  Alternatively, you can try the Almond Praline Cheesecake that comes with honey beignets.

    I really want to attend this, but it is sold out for two person tables for Oct 14. Since you are having people check in at 4 pm, does that mean you may sell off no – show tickets at that time?

    And if I were to buy tickets, do we have to check in and hang around from 4 until it starts at 7, or return at 7?

    Thanks,
    Bernadette

    If people do not check in by 4, will you sell their tickets (to me?)
