If you love candy, especially during the holiday season, then read details in our Foodie Guide to discover where you can find it at Disney.
Disney World Holiday Festivities
At Magic Kingdom, the Christmas parade and fireworks are returning at Very Merriest After Hours. Also, at Animal Kingdom, be on the lookout for the popular Merry Menagerie.
Don’t forget Hollywood Studios. Here, guests enjoy not only vintage decorations throughout, but also the Terror of Terror lit up in festive lights. There’s even “snow” on Sunset Boulevard!
At Epcot, Festival of the Holidays returns with the beloved Candlelight Processional. I’m (Susan) so excited to hear holiday storytellers in World Showcase! Living with the Land will also have its festive overlay. Last, but not least, the incredible gingerbread houses and decor return to Disney Resort hotels!
Disney World Foodies
At the Chestnuts and Good Cheer Holiday Kitchen booth, be on the lookout for cinnamon-glazed almonds, cashews, and pecans. Even though these are technically nuts and not candy. They are so sweet and delicious they need to be included.
Which nuts are your favorite? I (Susan) love pecans! At EPCOT’s Holiday Hearth Desserts booth, peppermint bark is available.
While Disney World also offers Main Street Confectionery to satisfy your sweet tooth. Also, check out Goofy’s Candy Shop at Disney Springs. Goofy’s candy is available throughout Disney theme park shops and Disney resorts.
Since these are pre-packaged, they make easy take home souvenirs. Assuming you don’t eat them before then!

Handmade Candy Canes
A tradition since 1968, Disney’s infamous candy canes at Disneyland Resort are hand-crafted during the holiday season. Candy makers mix the ingredients, hand-pull, roll, and twist the candy. The result is colorful swirls of 18-inch long candy canes!
A very limited number of these impressive candy canes will be produced by Disney candy makers this season. They will be sold only at:
- Candy Palace and Candy Kitchen at Disneyland park: December 7, 9, 15, 21, 23
- Trolley Treats at Disney California Adventure park: December 8, 14, 16, 22
For a chance to purchase one of the candy canes this year, a mobile waitlist system will be used. Quantities are very limited.
Once the mobile waitlist is activated, add your name and phone number at the location. Then, you’ll receive a text from Disney with a time to return to the location for the opportunity to purchase your candy cane, subject to availability.
Note: Candy canes are not available through mobile order.
