It’s about that time of the year! The Christmas decor is being put up around the resort and seasonal treats are starting to surface! Are you craving Hand Made Candy Canes from the Disneyland Resort yet? Yes? Good! ‘Cause we’ve got the dates!
Not sure what we’re talking about? Check out this post that showcases our first candy cane adventure.
HOW IT WORKS
Technically you are not supposed to line up before park opening, but guess what people do? When I went for the first time, I was lucky and got there just 30 minutes before park opening. But I talked to someone who was there by 4:00am, which to me is nuts. So basically, it’s your call. Last year, the crush wasn’t quite so bad, but you never know what’s going to happen this year.
Wristbands may be picked up at park opening.
I HAVE NOT confirmed this info, but this is how it went down last year:
There will be 40 wristbands per batch and three batches per day. This means that 120 wristbands will be given out at park opening.
The earlier you are there, the earlier your batch. I HAVE CONFIRMED that your wristband will get you ONE candy cane. If you have people with you, you HAVE to be together as a group. They will not hand you wrist bands for anyone who is not with you. Lines start at whichever candy kitchen is producing candy canes for the day. SO walk REALLY fast to either Candy Palace or Trolley Treats upon entering the park. Cast members will be there to guide you. It’s serious business!
Your wrist band will have the date and batch time on it. You may pick up your candy cane any time after your batch time.
I HAVE ALSO CONFIRMED that you must pick it up by 4:00 & cost is $12.99 (no discounts accepted). If you don’t pick up your cane by 4, it will be sold to someone in the stand by line.
Please note that these dates are subject to change. Additional dates may be added.
