Amazing Candy Apples At Goofy’s Candy Company

Whenever my family visits the Walt Disney World Resort, one of our favorite things to do is to check out the great candy apples. Each one is an amazing work of art. You all should know, Minnie Mouse is my FAVORITE character and I just love the classic way the Candy Artists have done up her apple…all sparkly!


Did you know that these apples come in designs of lots of your favorite Disney Characters depending on which candy shop you go in? My daughter spotted a Cheshire Cat apple on our last visit! We’ve even spotted some of the Princesses. With more than a dozen different apple selections that change throughout the seasons, everyone is sure to find something to satisfy that sweet tooth. I think the Goofy one is pretty awesome…notice his Ears?


When you visit Goofy’s Candy Company at Downtown Disney, you can actually watch the Candy Artists creating these masterpieces right there! Great attention is paid to every detail, making it really hard to decide which one to buy!


We’ve never actually taken the plunge and purchased one, but I noticed on my last visit that you can request to have them sliced! We may just get one on our next trip! I wouldn’t mind walking around munching on a freshly made, beautiful candy apple!

How fun would it be to make a very special Mickey apple at home? Well, you’re in luck because today, I’m sharing the instructions so you can try it! Have fun! [Click each image to view it larger]


Celebrating Oscar Nominees at AMC Downtown Disney 24 Theatres at WDW this weekend

Celebrating Oscar Nominees at AMC Downtown
Disney 24 Theatres at WDW this weekend

So, last week, my husband very casually said “We should go down to Disney next weekend” and, of course, I’m all over it! Here’s the thing though, he’s decided today that he’s had too stressful of a week to go down because it’s not very relaxing. WHAT?!!??

Well, I just got some fun information about a special event taking place tomorrow and next weekend down at Walt Disney World that I’m thinking I may be able to persuade him with. I’m not certain it will work, but you can bet I’m giving it a try!
