The countdown is ON for a grand Disneyland Holiday tradition! Hand-Crafted Candy Canes are on their way back to Disneyland, and we’ve got all the info for you here… including dates!!
The Hand-made Candy Canes in Disneyland are the stuff of legend, and you can read all about the process of making the candy canes to what it’s like to participate in “the race” by our Disneyland correspondent, Heather Sievers, here!
For 2016, just like in years past, the making of the Candy Canes will alternate between Candy Palace on Main Street U.S.A. in Disneyland and Trolley Treats on Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure.
It’s truly a treat to grab one of these limited creations, so you may to want to study up on the process before you try to get your own!
HOW To Get Your Candy Cane
Ok. So, technically speaking, guests are not supposed to line up prior to park open. However! I always advise trying to line up about 30-45 minutes ahead of park opening anyway. (And if you are eligible to enter the park on an Extra Magic Hour morning, all the better).
Once the park opens, wristbands will be distributed. Typically (based on previous years), 40 wristbands are distributed per batch with three batches per day, for a total of 120 wristbands.
One wristband is good for ONE Candy Cane, and there is a limit of ONE wristband per guest. Your next step is to head to the Candy Kitchen that is producing the Candy Canes for the day according to the batch time listed on your wristband. You may pick up your candy cane any time after your batch time, but prior to 4PM. In previous years, if you didn’t pick up your cane by 4PM, it would be sold to someone waiting on standby.
