    We will be visiting WDW for Christmas. Please tell me more about those delicious handmade candy canes and how I can go about getting one. Thank you!

    A very merry welcome back to you, Shannon! 

    I’m so excited to hEAR you’ll be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the yEAR!

    I have heard such wonderful things about the hand-pulled candy canes! This special treat is actually offered at Disneyland Resort during specific dates in December. Although they may not be available at Walt Disney World Resort, there are many delectable delights that are! 

    If you’re anything like me, you have been dreaming about the holiday season since it last came to an end. At Walt Disney World Resort, no detail is too small; from the “snow flurries,” to seeing Cinderella Castle draped with shining, shimmering lights, there is always something magical to celebrate during the holiday season! One of my very favorite things to do during Christmastime is to go check out Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Not only is it my very favorite Resort hotel, but you will find the iconic life-sized gingerbread house that fills the entire lobby with its delectable, sugary aroma! The magnificent display is 14-feet tall and houses a sweet-shop where you can purchase freshly baked house-made items! One of my family’s favorite traditions is to get something from the sweet shop and use the goodies as stocking stuffers! 

    Shannon, if you’re looking for holiday fun around the Theme Parks, be sure to check out Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Sunset Boulevard features the most wonderful yuletide projection Sunset Seasons Greetings show that has The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror looking merry and bright! EPCOT houses the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays where you can celebrate the holidays around the world! You will find kiosks that host delicious traditional seasonal recipes around the World Showcase, and you won’t want to miss the Holiday Cookie Stroll! Check out the Holiday Events & Celebrations for all the enchanting events!

    Of course, for the ultimate Christmastime fun, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is sure to get you into the holiday spirit! Although both tickets and dates have not yet been released, I would encourage you to keep checking back for the most updated information. I am so excited for you to experience magical “snowfall” on Main Street, U.S.A.

    Shannon, I hope you have the merriest time at The Most Magical Place on Earth!
