It's hot outside, so certainly you're thinking about Halloween, right?

Well, over at Disneyland, the spooks and goblins are getting ready to return as the park will reveal its annual Halloween festivities on Sept. 7. Yes, yes, that's way too early to celebrate Halloween, but some of you nutty people will rush right over there for a look at the Haunted Mansion decorations and the Headless Horseman at Disney California Adventure.

While you're there, you can blow some of your hard-earned cash on special themed treats, available through Oct. 31. Here's are some of what's on offer. We tasted these recently, and they're pretty good.

At Disneyland Park:

Red Rose Taverne in Fantasyland:

Black Rose dessert that consists of a chocolate truffle mousse with a berry compote and crunch pearls.

Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe on Main Street USA:

Sweet Potato Hand Pie: Buttery flaky dough, sweet potato filling, orange colored vanilla glaze and toasted marshmallows.
Chocolate Graveyard Cupcake: Chocolate sponge, cherry filling, chocolate mousse, chocolate cookie crumbs and Halloween decor.
Layered Pumpkin Cheesecake: Layers of pumpkin and N.Y. cheesecake topped with spiced whipped cream and crystalized ginger.

At Disney California Adventure Park

Paradise Garden Grill:

Coco Conchita: Traditional Mexican sweet bread topped with the orange colored sugar, filled with dulce de leche and finished with Miguel chocolate decoration.

Fiddler Fifer and Practical Cafe:

Headless Horseman Cupcake (returning from last year): Red velvet cupcake filled with dark chocolate mousse, topped with cream cheese frosting and headless horseman decor.
Chocolate Bat Cookie (returning from last year): Chocolate flavored sugar cookie with a hint of orange citrus finished with dark chocolate.

Cozy Cone Motel

Spoke-y Cone Macaron (returning from last year): Traffic cone-shaped macaron with a marshmallow buttercream filling and candy corn.

At The Disneyland Hotel

Trick or Tea at the Classic Afternoon Tea at Steakhouse 55:

Feel like having an elegant British-style high tea with real porcelain and dainty treats? It's pricey, ouch, but fun. $52 and up for adults. Mary Poppins would approve. You get a choice of tasty gourmet teas in an individual pot and you can upgrade that also to a glass of sparkling wine. Kids are welcome. And you don't have to stick up your little pinkie unless you want to. Tea is only served Fridays through Sundays and reservations are recommended.

Here's what's on offer with a special Halloween theme, dedicated to your favorite Disney villain:

Finger sandwiches and savory items:

Avocado Edamame Smash Toast with sweet chili, bacon and fried ruby red (Maleficent from "Sleeping Beauty")
Black Beet Deviled Egg with red Tobiko caviar and dry seaweed (Ursula from "The Little Mermaid")
Serrano Ham and Olives Sandwich with red bell pepper hummus, toasted black sesame seeds (Scar from "The Lion King")
Roast Prime Rib sandwich with creamy horseradish, caramelized onions, butter pickles and Peppadew (Gaston from "Beauty & The Beast")

Sweet treats

Pumpkin Cupcake with Cream Cheese (Cruella de vil from "101 Dalmations")
Classic Gingerbread cookie (Dr. Faciler Voodoo Dolls from "Princess and the Frog")
Poison Apple: Cinnamon Bavarian mousse and salted caramel apple (The Evil Queen from "Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs")
