Pre-Packaged Holiday Treats at Walt Disney World

We've covered many delicious treats for on-site snacking all over Walt Disney World, but some of my favorite souvenirs to bring home for friends and family are the wide variety of pre-packaged and take-home treats and sweets. These delicious gifts become even more fun when the holidays come around and the packaging dons festive colors and a wintery theme.

Candy tins and special labels feature Mickey and friends frolicking in a winter wonderland. Guests will find candy tine are filled with scrumptious Peppermint Bark (layers of semi-sweet and white chocolate topped with peppermint pieces) and round tins are filled with an assortment of flavored popcorn, but certainly the packaging draws us in as much as the delicious treats.

Baggies are filled with even red, white, and green candy corn have been tied with a festive ribbon to make it the perfect gift. Even the gummies are turned into holiday shapes and hues during this most magical time of the year. A Santa Mickey sugar cookie may even be just the treat to leave that jolly old elf to make sure that you get the best presents on Christmas morning. Lollipops, suckers, and even rice krispie treats get a holiday shine and are a great stocking stuffer or a take-to- school treat!

Speaking of bringing home gifts - our friends over at the Disney Food Blog highly recommend the Mickey Gingerbread Cookie Mix, which comes with its own special earhat wearing gingerbread man cookie cutter. If there's a special coffee lover in your house, Disney even has a Holiday Cheer coffee collection and some specialty hot cocoa tins to leave under the tree.

Keep your eyes open for holiday displays that can be found in gift shops all over the property, especially in spots like Main Street Confectionery in Magic Kingdom, Mouse Gear in Epcot, World of Disney in Downtown Disney, Sweet Spells in Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Guests on the Disney Dining Plan may be able to purchase some of the smaller treats (like a cookie or bag of gummies) with snack credits. Ask a cast member in shop for details at the cash register.

I brought home a couple of those Mickey gingerbread cookies to enjoy at school. This was a first for me, but it will not be the last!

Krista - I'm not sure when they will stop selling, the Christmas stuff comes down fairly quickly after New Years Day. Try the Christmas Store located in Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom for your best chance to find them.

There is also a year round Christmas shop in Epcot's Germany, and at Downtown Disney.
