A popular Disneyland tradition is back on Main Street U.S.A. this holiday season, as well as in Disney California Adventure. Handmade candy canes are being made and sold for the holiday season. This treat is so popular with guests that people arrive early to the park just to get in line for the opportunity to buy one.
The candy canes are made fresh each day in a heat-sealed kitchen. Through a window, guests can watch their treats being made by three trained candy makers. Normally three batches are made each day, which amounts to about 135 candy canes.
Wristbands are distributed at shop opening, which entitle guests to purchase one candy cane at the designated location. There are generally about 40 wristbands distributed for each batch.
Canes will be available November 25 and 30 and December 2, 5, 7, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, and 24 at Candy Palace at Disneyland and November 26 and 29 and December 3, 6, 8, 10, 13, 15, 17, 20, and 25 at Trolley Treats at Disney California Adventure.

Leah grew up in a little farming town in Illinois, right on the Mississippi River. Her Chicago-born husband, David, left the city for her, and they're now raising their three children (Jacob, Jonah and Lydia) just 12 miles from her hometown. As the Senior Editor of the DIS (wdwinfo.com), Leah spends a lot of time writing about, reading about, and discussing Disney. So, it should come as no surprise that one of her family's favorite ways to spend time is going to Walt Disney World and traveling on Disney Cruise Line. She also enjoys shopping, watching movies with her husband and doing crafts with and for her kids.
