Goofy's Candy Company- Create your own Treat



One of my biggest guilty pleasures on a Walt Disney World vacation is sweets. Everywhere you turn, there are delicious goodies calling your name, begging to be eaten. Luckily, a Disney vacation involves quite a bit of walking to balance things out, so you don’t have to feel too guilty indulging on a few extra treats!

 


We have a list of favorites that has grown throughout the years: Dole Whip (naturally), along with cupcakes, krispy treats, funnel cakes, ice cream… the list seems to get longer as the years go on. I had visited Goofy’s Candy Company at Downtown Disney many times in the past, but mostly just to browse, or to grab something prepackaged to bring home (and maybe use up a few extra snack credits at the end of our stay). I had heard fantastic things about the “Create Your Own Treat” offered at Goofy's, but as you can imagine, we never had much room for any more snacks.  On our most recent trip, my family finally found some time (and the appetite) - and I can definitely say we will be doing it again next time!
 


Goofy’s Candy Co. is the home to many delectable desserts- many of which can be used as a snack credit (they are marked, but if you are unsure- just ask). You can find chocolate covered marshmallows, pretzels, cookies, apples, and more- all creatively decorated, and likely just as delicious. One of my favorite novelties is the Turkey Leg shaped krispy treat- but that was not the goal of this visit. We headed straight to the counter and grabbed fill in sheets with pencils, and began the difficult task of choosing what to order. We were told that all but the apple could count for a snack credit- with one dip, one topping, and one drizzle; I have read that the rules for including it as a snack credit occasionally change, so it is best to verify with the Cast Member. 



We decided on “Krispy Rice” treats- in the shape of our favorite mouse, of course. It can be dipped in your choice of white, milk, or dark chocolate, and then topped by a variety of crushed candies, sprinkles, cookies or nuts. When I say “topped”, I mean completely covered in a heap of topping, so that none of the chocolate dip was showing. Last comes another chocolate drizzle of your choice: milk, white, or chocolate. The cast member prepares it right in front of you; half the fun is the anticipation of seeing your treat go from moderate to mammoth in a matter of minutes, and wondering just how you are going to eat it!

The treats were definitely big enough to share, but who are we kidding: I was with my teenage siblings and husband, and they each got their own. I, sadly, passed on getting one as well, as I had had a seasonal gingerbread cupcake earlier in the evening (which also gets 2 thumbs up)- but I will not make the same mistake next time!
Whether you are looking for a quick treat to calm your sweet tooth, want to load up on premade goodies to take home or use your snack credits on, or have a few minutes to ponder and design your own creation- you’ll definitely find something at Goofy’s Candy Company. Check it out on your next visit!

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…
