Have you had a Disneyland candy cane yet? For the last few years, we have eagerly awaited the announcement of handmade candy canes at Disneyland. These handmade candy canes have been a Disneyland tradition for over 35 years. They are hand-pulled and made at the Candy Palace on Main Street, U.S. A.
When we first heard about them, I think we had fear of missing out. Now they have become a holiday tradition. And this year, my children get to eat them too. If you’re visiting the Disneyland parks over the holidays, I highly recommend trying to get one.
Wait, what? Trying? Well, since these candy canes are handmade, and a Disneyland tradition, they are hard to come by. You can only get them on select days during November and December, and there will be a line involved.
Here’s how to get your Disneyland candy cane…
Once the park opens, head straight to the designated location for that day. It will either be at Candy Palace in Disneyland, or at Trolley Treats in California Adventure. There you’ll find Cast Members waiting to give you a wristband. These wristbands are limited in quantity and will go quickly. Once you have a wristband, you are guaranteed at least ONE candy cane. Your wristband will have a reservation time to pick up your candy cane. You must get it within TWO hours of your reservation time.
When you return to get your famous handmade candy cane, be prepared to pay $12.99 for each one. Is it worth it? Yes! We used to bring them home and keep them around like prized possessions. But now we eat them. We even enjoy all the last little bits of crumbs.
For those of you who have plans to visit the parks this year, here are the dates the candy canes will be available for the rest of December:
Candy Palace in Disneyland:
December 4, 6, 8, 11, 13, 15, 18, 20, & 24
Trolley Treats in California Adventure:
December 2, 5, 7, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 21, 25
