The HOLIDAY SEASON is a magical time at Disneyland Resort! For the 2022 Holiday Season, the festive fun ran from November 11, 2022 through January 8, 2023. You can find all of the special holiday happenings around the Resort by clicking here.
But you can check out all of the Season’s Eatings by staying right here on this page — where we brought you ALL of our Holiday Treat reviews from Disneyland Resort — to get an idea of what might be in store this coming Holiday Season!
We tasted lots of the goodies that Santa’s elves cooked up for Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, Downtown Disney, and beyond. And don’t forget, the return of the holiday season also means the return of the Disney California Adventure Festival of Holidays, where Festive Foods Marketplaces delivered even more seasonal snacks and sips!

The Famous Disneyland Candy Canes
Before we dive into each individual park’s offerings, it’s good to know that the FAMOUS HAND-PULLED DISNEYLAND CANDY CANES are now up for grabs on select dates at each park!
Take a look at the locations and dates below:
- Candy Palace at Disneyland Park: December 4th, 6th, 11th, 13th, 18th, 20th, and 24th
- Trolley Treats at Disney California Adventure Park: December 5th, 7th, 12th, 14th, 19th, 21st, and 25th
If you want a CHANCE to purchase a candy cane, you must enter the mobile waitlist, on which you add your name and phone number to get a text with the time you can purchase your candy cane. (There is no guarantee that the candy canes won’t sell out before you’re able to purchase one, so the earlier you get on the mobile waitlist the better.) You can learn more about this process HERE.
