Dining in Disneyland: Seasonal Treats at Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe

The Disney Holiday season is in full effect at the Disneyland Resort!  I love that the Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe is always introducing us to new seasonal items.

In fact, because I never know what I’ll find, I’ve make it a point to check in on nearly every visit to Disneyland!

On my last trip there were a handful of new items that are special for the Disney holiday season.  Also in the bakery cases were some returning favorites.

The popular Santa Mickey Candy Cane Cupcake is back.

The cupcake is chocolate, topped with a mound of red & green “sure to stain your teeth” frosting, and finished off with a candy cane.

Review: Christmas Cookies at Magic Kingdom!

Christmas cupcakes are awesome, but what are the holidays without a few cookies?

In Disney, there are dozens of types of holiday cookies to choose from, but I  always head straight to the Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom to find the really creative ones!

And this visit was no different. Every year I find different options, and they’re all as festive and fun and can be. Let’s take a look at the 2012 editions of the Main Street Bakery holiday cookies!

Santa Mickey Sugar Cookies

This simple design represents Santa himself — complete with his little belt and belt buckle! Later in the week I saw these cookies made with a much larger belt and belt buckle, so there may be a few different versions out there depending on who’s manning the icing counter at the Bakery! ;-)
