Our Guide to the Yummiest Holiday Treats & Foods at Disneyland Resort

by Mommy Frog on November 1, 2022 4 Los Angeles

Disneyland always offers some froggerific treats during the holiday season. It's like a SoCal sunny winter wonderland in the parks, hotels and Downtown Disney, with yummy Disneyland Christmas food (and other holiday-inspired foods) everywhere you look. Those tasty holiday treats are available Nov. 11, 2022, to Jan. 8, 2023.

Disneyland releases the delicious details about the large variety of holiday treats, food and beverages for Disneyland Resort and Festival of Holidays early, and we can't wait to dig in! We have already spotted — OK, tasted — some holiday cookies, pumpkin spice churro toffee and cupcakes before the holiday time is started. The gingerbread Mickey (full size this year) and Santa Mickey cookies became available shortly after Halloween. Yum!

The Plaza Inn dining package for A Christmas Fantasy Parade has returned, so book a reservation if you are interested. If you are ringing in the new year at Disneyland, you can now reserve a fireworks dining package at Plaza Inn.

Without further ado, here's a look at the 2022 holiday food and treats.

Disneyland Christmas Food and Treats for 2022

Our Guide to the Yummiest Holiday Treats & Foods at Disneyland Resort-Gingerbread crispyYou can hop over to our Holiday Time at Disneyland and guide to Disney's Festival of the Holidays to see what's in store in terms of entertainment and decor this year. It's looking like a pretty typical holiday season at the Disneyland Resort — yay! Holiday time at Disneyland Resort runs from Nov. 11, 2022, through Jan. 8, 2023, offering many yummy Disneyland Christmas foods and treats to "season" the season.

Disney Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure brings special entertainment and festival booths with many tasty foods beyond Christmas. The dishes are inspired by international holidays and traditional American treats relating to Christmas/Navidad, Diwali, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Three Kings' Day. By now, you know I've got a sweet tooth, so you know I have to do some research for you ;)

Limited-Time, Hand-Pulled Candy Canes at Disneyland 2022

Our Guide to the Yummiest Holiday Treats & Foods at Disneyland Resort-Candy Maker rolls out the candy caneOne of the most talked-about, exclusive Disneyland Christmas food items is the hand-made candy cane. Every year, the Disneyland faithful line up for the opportunity to purchase a hand-pulled candy cane. The 18-inch canes are made fresh with pure peppermint oil and are only offered at Candy Palace and Trolley Treats on select dates. You must join the mobile waitlist to purchase them due to the limited quantity. You may not mobile order candy canes. These candy canes are like the must-see concert of the Christmas candy season.

The 2022 candy cane dates at Candy Palace in Disneyland:

  • Dec. 4, 6, 11, 13, 18, 20 and 24

Candy Cane dates at Trolley Treats at Disney California Adventure:

  • Dec. 5, 7, 12, 14, 19, 21, 21 and 25

We hopped by on the first day of candy cane sales at Disneyland Park in 2021 to get one, and here's how it went for us. Spoiler alert: We got one! We are early frogs because we like to get the flies, so we arrived excessively early, but we got a candy cane so we don't argue with the results. We arrived at the Harbor Blvd. security checkpoint at 6 a.m. Believe it or not, we were not the first ones at the gate. At about 6:30 a.m., they moved us to the K-9 security screening and held us there. At 7:15 a.m., we entered the Esplanade and waited outside the Disneyland gates. (FYI: the Disneyland Resort hotel security and Downtown Disney security opens at 7 a.m., so people beat us to the park gates but not that many. (Harbor Blvd. security opens when the first bus from Toy Story lot arrives about 7:15 a.m. each day, so you could just get to Toy Story early and catch the first bus to Disneyland and still make it.)

At 7:30 a.m., the turnstiles start letting people into the park. We were amongst the first people in the park. This is where it gets crazy though! People move very quickly — even though there is technically no running allowed — to the Candy Palace. (At Disney California Adventure, the line will form outside Trolley Treats.) A line forms out front in the direction of the castle and wraps around by Jolly Holiday Café. At 8 a.m. when the park officially opens, one by one, people waiting in line can scan a QR code to join a virtual waitlist.

You will input your party size (so only one party member needs to scan the code) for the number of candy canes your group is purchasing, and all purchasing party members need to be present at pick up. An infant counts as much as a person as an adult. There is a strict one candy cane per person, per day rule. You input your name and cell phone number. You'll get a text when it's your turn to come back. People at the front of the line may get their candy canes right away. Others will have to return.

Our Guide to the Yummiest Holiday Treats & Foods at Disneyland Resort-Donald statue presents the finished candy cane.When you receive your text to return, check in outside Candy Palace, get a ticket and then take it to the register to pay. There are no discounts or refunds. The canes cost $19.99 plus tax. They come bubble-wrapped and double-bagged.

Disneyland has been making these special candy canes since 1968, and the candy shops make a limited amount each day. In the past, cast members passed out wristbands. If you miss the morning window, they may sell the candy canes not picked up by 4 p.m., so be in line at 4 p.m. just in case. Whether you get a candy cane or not, it’s fun to watch them making the candy canes through the shop windows. Each cane is measured and weighed, then sealed in plastic and wrapped in bubble wrap.

What is the cane like? It's a big, beautiful white, red and green cane that's an inch thick and over a foot tall! It tastes like a candy cane with a flakier texture. We loved the anticipation and getting to bond with other nice Disney fans from places near and far for over two hours while we waited. Now we can say that we have participated in a Disneyland tradition that started before we were born. While we waited to join the waitlist, cast members brought out large candy cane photo-ops. It was a festive and fun morning, and the process of getting the cane is toadally part of the experience! By 8:20 a.m., we had our cane and were able to go enjoy the park.

Disney Festival of Holidays Food, Desserts and Holiday Beverages on the Sip and Savor Pass

Our Guide to the Yummiest Holiday Treats & Foods at Disneyland Resort- Sip and Savor Pass and passport

And that brings us to the Festival of Holidays booths! Attention all foodies: This annual treat has several festive food stands, offering regular bites of food, beverages and treats. The 2022 menus are in and we are so frogcited to see new treats and old favorites! The bites, sounds and sights around the booths are all inspired by celebrations around the world such as Christmas/Navidad, Diwali, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Three Kings Day. There are also food carts and special items at select restaurants that are on the Sip and Savor Pass mentioned below.

Our Guide to the Yummiest Holiday Treats & Foods at Disneyland Resort-Esquites Mac and margaritaWith so much to try, it is so hard to make a choice. Pick up a Sip and Savor Pass, which allows you to taste your way through the booths and try eight dishes or nonalcoholic beverages from the Festival Food Marketplaces. The Sip and Savor Pass is $59 in 2022 (Magic Key holders save $5 on the Sip and Savor Pass in addition to an exclusive lanyard and a Magic Key themed dining area near the entrance of Cars Land.) Sip and Savor prices are still to come for 2022. Also, pick up a passport to help guide you through the booths and point you toward vegetarian, plant-based or kid-friendly choices. Get it stamped at the Marketplaces and hop by the Holiday Central Pergola near The Little Mermaid for a special completion stamp. The festival marketplaces have allergy menus available, too. Just ask!

Here's a time-saving tip: If you can identify several items you want to eat, look for the booth with the shortest line and order all of the food there (when available — sometimes they pause this when several booths are running low on some items). Then, take your receipt to each booth to collect the items. We did that and did not even have to collect it all at once. We could enjoy our bites and could skip the line to go straight to the pick-up window for the other items later. Mobile order is another great option. Be sure to download the latest version of the Disneyland app. Skipping the lines is our jam.

You can get the purple Mickey Mouse jingle bell glow cube at the festival booths. Here are the 2022 menus for food and treats:

One of our favorite stops each holiday season is the lobby of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Near the giant gingerbread house (arriving Nov. 14) and Christmas tree is the holiday cart. The holiday cart has the cutest cookies and the most delicious Mickey gingerbread. You can check the hours online but it's usually open in the afternoon and evening. We love to relax in front of the fire with our cookies, hot cider and cocoa.

Does anyone know if the Mickey gingerbread cookies (like the big one shown under the Disney Hotel section) are available anywhere in Downtown Disney??

Hi Leslie!

These cookies are so popular and delicious! We have not seen them in Downtown Disney, but from Downtown Disney, you could easily hop into the Grand Californian Hotel and purchase one from the holiday cart in the lobby between 3 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Hoppy planning!

We are going to be there Nov 6-10... JUST before the Holiday stuff is supposed to start. What happens to the special food items during this in-between time? Do they carry over the Halloween food items or do they start the Christmas food early?? I know it's a good time to go because of the crowds but I am worried that there won't be any specialty food items available!

Hi Jenny!

There won't be any holiday food at that time. If there are leftover Halloween treats in the candy shops you may see those, but none of the special items at restaurants will be available. Keep an eye on the closing time and eat dinner early as we are seeing earlier closing times during that week this year.

Hoppy planning!
