We’ve just heard that Sweet Spells will be closing permanently later this month to make way for a Pixar merchandise location.
Sweet Spells has served traditional Disney park snacks such as Mickey-shaped Krispy Treats, Cake Pops, Fudge, and more over the years. It’s one of the spots where you can see specialty Caramel Apples being decorated, and it added a line of Whoopie Pies unique to the location a couple of years ago.
And it also became the de facto home to a Hollywood Studios signature snack — the Carrot Cake Cookie — when its original home of Writer’s Stop was closed to make way for current spots like BaseLine Tap House as the park makes a huge transition with the addition of future Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Toy Story Land.
According to WDW Magic (usually a pretty reliable site), Sweet Spells will be closing on April 16, 2018, to be transformed into a store selling Pixar merchandise. The candy counter and production kitchen will be removed, and some fresh, non-packaged items will be available at counter service locations elsewhere in the park.
We’re hoping that more of our favorites get shuttled over to Trolley Car Cafe, as the Butterfinger Cupcake (aka Peanut Butter Crunch Cupcake) and Napoleon from Starring Rolls did. But nothing has been confirmed at this time.
