Mickey Pumpkin Donuts

Fall is upon us and that makes me think of pumpkin. These adorable Mickey Pumpkin Donuts remind me of something you'd find at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World or Mickey's Halloween Party at Disneyland. These Mickey Pumpkin Donuts have Fall at Disney all over them!
