Walt Disney World is a place to make memories, and here at the DFB, we’re always game to create the tastiest memories of all: FOOD memories! At Goofy’s Candy Co. in Disney Springs, those memories include the fun and flavorful Create Your Own Treat experience.
The Create Your Own Treat experience lets guests select a base treat, a chocolate dip, a chocolate drizzle, and one topping. But what’s really happening is more than chocolate on top of a classic Disney Parks snack. That’s because the experience also includes the on-stage creation of your very own sweet treat and a custom, freshly-made snack!
The steps are simple: fill out an order form, hand it to the cast member at the counter, then wait!
Here’s the ordering sheet, which shows off quite clearly the many, many sugary (and some salty!) choices. Your bases include Caramel Apple, Marshmallow, Gingerbread Mickey Cookie, and Mickey Crisped Rice Cereal Treat (a/k/a the Krispie Treat). Dipping Flavors include White, Milk, or Dark Chocolate. Drizzle options are the same.
But the toppings are where it gets really fun because there are currently 12 options. One topping is included in the price, but you can add more toppings to the tune of $1.00 extra per additional topping. Toppings include Sprinkles, mini-M&Ms, Peanut Butter Chips, Chopped Peanuts, Sliced Almonds, Cinnamon and Sugar, Dark and White Chocolate Chips, Crushed Oreo Cookie Crumbs, Crushed Butterfingers, Coconut, and Graham Cracker Crumbs.
Once you’ve made your selections and handed your order form to the helpful cast member behind the counter, you’ll want to watch the magic happen! Everything is done on-stage, so you can make yourself really hungry for that chocolatey goodness! (Note that the procedure now is for treats to be decorated on only one side, so be sure to inquire if you’d like both sides to be coated!)
When your treat is complete, they’ll call your name, and you can pick up your treat!
Your treat will be packaged for you to take with you. Now, this isn’t air-tight packaging, so you’ll want to plan accordingly — especially since it’s so sweet, you’ll likely need to eat it over the course of a few days (that is, if you don’t plan to share with your crew).
There are so many different combinations of Create Your Own Treats to try that there’s something for nearly everyone. Prices vary a bit on the Create Your Own Treats. Specialty Apples are $10.99 and not snack credit eligible. But it costs $5.49 for a Krispie Treat and $4.99 for a Marshmallow or Gingerbread Cookie — or one DDP snack credit! These aren’t the most valuable uses of snack credits from a monetary standpoint, but they’re so fun and customized that the value goes beyond monetary in this case.
But the Create Your Own Treats aren’t the only customizable option at Goofy’s Candy Co.! That’s because Goofy’s Glaciers also allow you to build your own — in this case it’s a sweet slushy rather than a chocolate-dipped snack.
Goofy’s Glaciers come in two sizes — Standard and a Souvenir Cup — and in nine flavors: Coca Cola Cooler, Orange You Happy Orange, Goofy Glacier Apple, Brrrrr-Banana, Gwarshly Berry Blue, Hi-C Lime, Pucker Purple, Powerade Mountain Blast, and Powerade Fruit Punch.
At Goofy’s Candy Co., guests can sample flavors before they make their choices. This can be a fun opportunity to try things you aren’t sure you’ll like and maybe discover a brand new favorite! (It’s not self-service, so be sure to let the cast member know you’d like to try a few before you order!)
When you know what you want, let the cast member know, and he or she will dispense your slushy! We like the DFB-named Rainbow Glacier — a cup of multiple flavored Glaciers layered into a rainbow of sugary frozen refreshment! (See the advent of the Rainbow Glacier here!) But the beauty of creating your own Goofy’s Glacier combo is that it’s just the way you like it!
Also note: the Standard size of Glacier is also a snack credit on DDP (or $5.49 out of pocket)!
We love that Goofy’s gives guests the opportunity to create exactly what they want, thus giving them a personalized, positive experience they had a hand in creating!
