REVIEW: New Haunted Mansion Offerings at Royal Street Veranda for Halloween Time 2019 at Disneyland Park
The Royal Street Veranda at Disneyland is having a swinging wake with these Haunted Mansion Halloween Time offerings! Introducing Pickwick Ghost Punch and Professor Phineas Plump’s Cure All Fritters!
Pickwick Ghost Punch – $5.99
A lively concoction of fruit, citrus juice and sherbet.
Pickwick is one of the ghosts that can be seen in the Grand Hall of the Haunted Mansion, hanging from the chandelier from his cane and a glass of wine in his free hand.
This drink was amazing. It tastes mainly of orange and pineapple juice, which makes for a very sweet drink. It’s really refreshing and would have tasted nice with alcohol as well, but alas, you’ll have to go to Disney California Adventure for that. The orange slice on the top is a nice touch as well to tie in all the citrus flavors.
Professor Phineas Plump’s Cure All Fritters – $5.49
Pimento cheese fritters with a ghost pepper ranch that will “cure all” that ails you!
Phineas is one of the three Hitchhiking Ghosts in the Haunted Mansion. He’s a traveling doctor that would love to be one of the ghosts that follow you home so he can help “cure” everything.
The fritters are just okay, and not entirely worth the price for what little you get. The fritters are deep fried and a tad greasy. We sadly couldn’t taste the pimento cheese in them, which might have helped the overall satisfaction of these. The ghost pepper ranch was okay and not overly spicy, like the Ghost-ly Pepper Nachos over at the Lamplight Lounge at Disney California Adventure. The dipping sauce was a nice touch, but be cautious, a little goes a long way.
Overall, the drink was amazing and would definitely get again. The fritters we would pass on for one of the many other Halloween Time treats around the park.
