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!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
