Christmas and Holiday Dining at Disney, 2010

santawafflebigDisney parks are special places during the holiday season, especially for foodies like us. Our favorite Disney resorts create incredible works of art out of gingerbread, chocolate, icing, and other delicious ingredients; shops and stores put out holiday-themed merchandise and treats that will win over your pickiest eater; and the confectionery starts making Peppermint Fudge while the Candy Palace heats up for some candy cane construction.

We’ve tried to capture as much of this holiday spirit as possible this year, our second Disney Food Blog Christmas:
