Dining in Disneyland: The Candy Cane Marshmallow Wand

Lately I’ve been a big fan of Disney Marshmallow Wands.  Fresh marshmallows dipped in gooey caramel, covered with chocolate then topped with various items: YUM!

In the past we’ve seen lots of fun marshmallow wands.  Everything from traditional sprinkles, to Reese’s Pieces, s’mores, character themed, and more.  The Candy Cane Marshmallow Wand is currently here for the season, and it’s wonderful!  I recently picked one up to enjoy at home and boy, am I glad I did.

Dining in Disneyland: Fun Halloween Time Candy Bags!

Halloween time is HERE! Themed treats and merchandise have already started to appear at the Disneyland Resort.  On a recent visit I spotted these perfectly packaged Seasonal Candy Bags at Disney California Adventure.

The artwork & packaging on these really caught my eye!  There are four different bag designs, each one containing a different type of candy.  The candies themselves are not new, but the packaging “make over” from previous years is going to have them flying off the shelves.  It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I think I like Donald’s “Terror in Tomorrowland” artwork best.

2014 Disneyland Candy Cane Dates Announced!

Tis the season! As the holiday decor goes up around the parks and resorts, the Disneyland bakeries are busy mixing up traditional recipes! The highly-anticipated Hand-Crafted Candy Canes from the Disneyland Resort can soon be yours! That’s right; we’ve got the dates.

Haven’t heard about the candy canes? Check out this post that showcases our awesome Disneyland candy cane adventure.

Hand Made Candy Canes from The Candy Palace

Just like last year, Candy Cane making will alternate between Candy Palace on Main Street USA in Disneyland and Trolley Treats over on Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure.

HOW IT WORKS

Technically you are not supposed to line up before park opening, but guess what people do? We recommend arriving 30-45 minutes prior to park opening and your best bet is likely to line up for a morning extra magic hour.

Wristbands may be picked up at park opening.

During the 2012 and 2013 holidays, there were 40 wristbands per batch and three batches per day. This means that 120 wristbands were given out at park opening.

The earlier you are there, the earlier your batch. PLEASE NOTE that [Read more…]

Adorable as can be, these Easter Eggs are as tasty as they are cute.

The moist cake is dipped in white chocolate, then decorated with sanding sugar, and topped with chocolate Mickey ears.  They come in chocolate, vanilla & red velvet.

We went with chocolate, because it was the only flavor they had left in these ones.

News: New Gourmet Chocolate Peanut Butter Caramel Apple Coming to Disneyland in January

Gourmet Caramel and Candy Apples are legendary at Disney. And come January, guests at Disneyland (and possibly Disney World, too!) are going to have a brand new apple to add to the list!

But seriously, this is one of the most gargantuan caramel apples I’ve ever seen!

Dining in Disneyland: 2013 Disneyland Candy Cane Dates!!

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.

Hand Made Candy Canes from The Candy Palace

Just like last year, Candy Cane making will be alternating between Candy Palace on Main Street USA in Disneyland and Trolley Treats over on Buena Vista Street at Disney California 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 [Read more…]

Dining in Disneyland: A Quick Peek at Halloween Treats

Halloween time has arrived at the Disneyland Resort, and the treats (especially the pumpkin ones) are calling my name! 

Familiar Pumpkin Faces at Halloween Time!

I found a handful of fun items that I felt needed to be shared immediately so that your Halloween snacking could be planned accordingly.

Please note that we will be posting some in depth reviews of some of these treats, but for now, here’s a mini sampling…

Let’s not save the best for last.

Pumpkin Fritters, Gingerbread Cookies, and Pumpkin Latte

These gems can be found in Disneyland at the Royal Street Veranda. They have REAL pumpkin chunks in them and are fried to perfection.  They come with a creamy custard dipping sauce.

Pumpkin Fritters from Royal Street Veranda

The Royal Street Veranda also features a Pumpkin Latte
The Pumpkin Latte is flavorful but not at all artificial tasting.

Pumpkin Latte

A perfect treat to keep you warm, if it ever cools down here in Southern California!

AND Spooky Kooky Gingerbread Cookies
Soft, chewy and ginger-bready, with a Halloween twist!

Spooky Kooky Gingerbread Cookie

These can also be purchased at the Mint Julep Bar.

Mickey Ghost Marshmallow Cones

Trolley Treats at Disney California Adventure had these adorable grim grinning Mickey Ghost Marshmallow Cones in their window.

Dining in Disneyland: New Cake Pops Spotted at the Disneyland Resort

I never miss an opportunity to see what Marceline’s in Downtown Disney is up to.  Even if I’m just quickly walking by, I always pop in to see if there is anything new.

On a recent visit, two fun cake pops caught my eye.  The Goofy and Cheshire Cat inspired cake pops appear to be close relatives to their caramel apple counterparts.  (You can read about the delicious Cheshire Cat Caramel apple here and the disastrous Goofy Caramel Apple here.)

This post though, is all about their mini lookalikes, which were introduced to the resort at the beginning of August.

New Cheshire Cat and Goofy Cake Pops Join Mike Wazowski!

Since I had already tried a Mike Wazowski cake pop (on more than one occasion) during the Monstrous Summer season, I purchased a Cheshire Cat and Goofy cake pop to go.  We were staying on property for the weekend, so I walked them back to the Disneyland Hotel for a little in-room review.

Cheshire Cat & Goofy Cake Pops

First up, we’ll take a look at the Cheshire Cat.

Cheshire Cat Cake Pop

Round with tiny triangular ears and a great big chocolate smile, the Cheshire Cat is covered with purple and pink sanding sugar. Take a bite into those ears and you’ll find [Read more…]
