A few months back, we gave you a sneak peek of Trolly Treats’ Rock Candy Mountain.
Displayed prominently in the candy store’s main window, these sweet slopes are definitely one of my favorite things to look at on Disney California Adventure’s Buena Vista Street; ESPECIALLY when you know its hidden secret!
History of Rock Candy Mountain
Originally intended as an attraction to be part of the Storybook Land Canal Boats; the Casey Jr. Circus Train was going to travel around it in Disneyland Park. Concept art was drawn, but the project was never built.
In its honor, the sparkling sugar mountain has been brought to life by imagineers who used both real and replica candies to create a fun window display that is sure to delight all passers by.
AND instead of Casey Jr. making its way around the tracks, a mini red trolley has the privilege. If you stand out front on Buena Vista Street, you can even hear the trolley bells coming from speakers near the window display!
Exploring Rock Candy Mountain
Rock Candy Mountain features tons of sweet treats. All the classics are there: you’ve got Astro Pops, Smarties, Lollipops, Gum Drops, Candy Corn, Dots, Peppermints, Jelly Beans, Jujubes, and more.
There’s also a chocolate waterfall complete with cookies, frosting draped slopes and a even little gingerbread house.
I love the details on the little gingerbread house. It’s got a perfect little place to sit and watch the trolley go by!
Find What’s *Hidden* Inside
When you are visiting Trolley Treats, make sure you check out both sides of the mountain. There are so many fun details, including a super secret Hidden Mickey hiding inside.
You’d never ever know it was there unless someone showed you! I was lucky enough to be Hidden Mickey Hunting with Hidden Mickey Guy, Steve Barret when he showed this special hidden gem to my boys and me.
Here’s how you can find it, too!
Step One: Go Inside of Trolley Treats so you are viewing the back side of Rock Candy Mountain.
Step Two: Locate the little “wooden” ladder on its left side.
Step Three: Stand at the far left corner of the display and peek through the ladder rungs. In between the ladder rungs, you will see a tiny snowman in the middle of the mountain wearing Mickey Ears!!!!
It’s very hard to photograph this little guy, but when you visit it in person you will love the “there it is!” moment you have when you see it.
A big, gigantic thanks to Steve for taking us Mickey Hunting! My boys are still talking about what a fun time they had! If you want to find more Hidden Mickeys, pick up some of those famous yellow books of his! They’re great for reading while you’re waiting in ride lines, or sitting at the table for dinner!
Have you visited Rock Candy Mountain yet? Do you plan on spotting that little snowman and his cute Hidden Mickey Ears?
