Well, well, well… what have we here? Mr. Oogie Boogie isn’t just haunting the Disney California Adventure theme park this Halloween season. He’s also set up shop in the lobby of the neighboring Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, where Disneyland Resort chefs have put together an amazingly tremendous cake inspired by Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
This colossal Oogie Boogie concoction is entirely edible, features thirteen Hidden Mickeys, and is made from a whopping 260 pounds of powdered sugar, 380 eggs, 220 pounds of rice cereal, 95 pounds of marshmallow, 80 pounds of butter, 120 pounds of dark chocolate, 80 pounds of white chocolate, and 480 pounds of fondant. The cauldron display is over four feet tall and sits on a pedestal inside the gorgeous Grand Californian lobby.
Watch Oogie Boogie Halloween Cake at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel:
If you happen to be passing through the Grand Californian during the next couple weeks before Halloween officially happens, be sure to grab yourself a seasonal snack a the hotel’s holiday kiosk, settle into a comfortable chair, and enjoy the spooky sounds of the Skeletones– an appropriate supernatural-themed a cappella group who entertain crowds with not-so-scary songs like “Monster Mash,” the main theme from Little Shop of Horrors, and Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition.”
Watch Skeletones perform Halloween songs in Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel:
Earlier in the Skeletones’ set during my visit, I also saw them sing the theme from Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr., which is always weird to hear on Disney property, considering that franchise is owned by Sony. Still, it’s a delightfully suitable and spirited song for this time of year, and they didn’t receive any complaints from me.
