Review: Classic Treats at the Magic Kingdom Confectionery in Walt Disney World

We’ve got some classic Disney snacks to share with you from the Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Confectionery!

Walking down Main Street, you can smell the sugary goodness coming from the Confectionery before you can see its turn-of-the-century facade. And it’s always worth a trip inside to check it out! They have the cutest Disney treats, including chocolate covered cookies, candy covered apples, and gourmet candies in the shapes of our favorite Disney characters.

Even if I don’t want to eat sweets (*cough*NEVERHAPPENS*cough*), I like to stop in to watch the cast members roll the Rice Krispies and dip apples into that sweet chocolate!

And today we’ve got some favorite Confectionery treats to share with you!!!

We’ll start with the Mickey-shaped treats, because I think they’re the most magical. :)

First, we have that classic Mickey Chocolate Chip Cookie, and it is enormous! This picture doesn’t really do it justice. This bad boy practically requires two hands. (We recently posted this on Instagram and there were a bunch of folks who didn’t know where to get one. So if that was you — here you go!!)

The buttery and crunchy-on-the-outside-chewy-on-the-inside chocolate chip cookie is the perfect amount of sweet and salty. The ears are dipped in a smooth milk chocolate, similar to the Mickey krispies with chocolate-dipped ears.

This one is $5.49 and is snack credit eligible on the Disney Dining Plan. I think it’s a pretty good deal since it’s yummy and big enough to share!

If chocolate chips and chocolate-dipped ears is just too much chocolate for you, there’s also a white sugar cookie option available.

Moving on to the next classic Mickey snack: the Specialty Mickey Apple.

This one is the quintessential Mickey treat! It’s $10.99, which is kind of steep, but think of all the cute pictures you can take with it! Besides, it’s one of those things you can not get anywhere but a Disney Park.

First, the apple is dipped in caramel, then in a smooth milk chocolate. Mickey’s “pants” are made of red sprinkles and two yellow jellybeans.

For the ears, they’ve attached two chocolate covered marshmallows.

Apples like this are a staple at the Confectionery, so stop by and see if one catches your eye! They come in tons of varieties including candied, caramel, peanut butter chocolate, M&M, and apple pie, not to mention the character-clad ones. If you’d like to share your apple (and you probably will) the cast members can slice the apple into more shareable, easy-to-eat pieces. You can see our full review of these here!

Now, the next two treats are not Mickey-centric, but they are yummy! The Milk Chocolate S’more Square is a simple treat for your snack credit and has become a new classic.

It’s $4.99, so a decent snack credit value for a unique treat that you won’t find too many other places in Disney World.

Inside the milk chocolate coating is a graham cracker, another layer of chocolate, and some gooey marshmallow.

It’s a simple, easy to eat treat that you can carry to your next ride or parade-viewing spot!

The Confectionary also features fudge. Lots and lots of delicious fudge. The Peanut Butter Fudge version is one of our favorites!

Disney fudge definitely has a fan following. Even though it is no longer made on property (in Disney World that is; we’re hearing different in Disneyland), it is still one of our favorite snacks — and who doesn’t love peanut butter anything?! You can also find plenty of fudge varieties including plain chocolate and cookies and cream. Look for seasonal options during the holidays!

The Peanut Butter Fudge has a creamy texture, and it’s also a great pick for those who like the salty-sweet flavor combo!

The fudge is $4.39 and snack credit eligible.

    Carmel apples? There are no more carmel apples IMHO. Even Disney now refers to them as candy covered apples. The beige sticky candy covering the apple is a far cry from the glossy brown delicious carmel they used in the past. Tastes like corn syrup and some sort of thickener. So sad.

    I agree with Amber, the quality of Disney’s snacks have really dropped in the last two years or so. I surprised no one mentioned how small the “caramel” apples have shrunk to as well. Disney food has always been expensive, but you used to get really good quality. We decided to forgo them the last time we went because of this.

    We also used to go through 3 bags of the chocolate drizzle caramel corn during the week, but I noticed the amount of chocolate that used to literally cover it, has been significantly cut back, not making it worth the price. So we decided not to purchase that anymore on our last two trips as well. So sad indeed!
