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!

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could
