Hand-Pulled Disneyland Candy Canes 2019Hand pulled candy canes

This tradition dates back to 1968, making this year the 50th anniversary of these incredible candy canes. The Disneyland Resort is one of the few places that still uses this technique of making hand-pulled candy canes. The candy canes themselves are 18 inches long and they are delicious. Make sure you don't miss out!

Due to the high popularity of these hand-pulled candy canes, guests line up the INSTANT the gates open to receive a wristband. This is easily the most popular item on our list of Disneyland Christmas time treats. Wristbands are limited and only available while supplies last. Guests are limited to ONE wristband per person and the wristband entitles the guests to purchase ONE candy cane at the designated location. Don't lose this wristband! You will need to present it to purchase your candy cane. No discounts are applicable for candy canes.

Disneyland Christmas Time Treats - Candy Cane makers

The 2019 Christmas Time Candy Cane dates are: 

Both the Candy Palace and Trolley Treats have specific alternating days that they make the candy canes. The candy canes sell for $12.99 each and are 5 oz each. Annual Pass discounts are not applicable for purchasing a Candy Cane.

Candy Palace at Disneyland 

November 29; December 2, 4, 6, 9, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, and 24

Trolley Treats at California Adventure

November 30; December 3, 5, 7, 10, 12, 14, 17, 19, 21, and 25

These Disneyland candy canes, if you haven't guessed already, are a big deal. These are the steps you should follow to get your hands on one of these delicious candy canes:

  1. Get to the park at least an hour prior to opening so you have a chance at being at the front of the line for the turnstiles entering the parks.
  2. Once the cast members let you in, head right to Candy Palace or Trolley Treats (depending on which park you are going for) and get in line. You will see people literally running. While running is technically not allowed, a little skipping won't go amiss. The takeaway here? Move fast!
  3. You will wait in line for a wristband that each person in your party will get that will include a return time. If you're lucky enough to be near the front, you might be able to pick up your candy cane right away. Remember: only one candy cane/wristband per person in your group. You also won't be allowed to save spots for other people in your group in this line.
  4. Come back on time for your candy cane! You will end up likely waiting in two lines for these candy canes when all is said and done. Now that's some Disney dedication!

The candy canes are extremely fragile so make sure you take care to store it in a locker or treat it like glass while it's in your park bag so they don't break. Scoring one of these candy canes is the ultimate foodie win for Disneyland Christmas time treats.

  1. What a great list! I tried the cowboy churro and it is super rich but so great.

    I also loved the food at the Festival of Holidays!

  2. Best travel treats? What treats, food items do you think I can fly home to Colorado? My hubby cannot join us due to illness and I want him to at least be able to taste some of the Disney Christmas Magic.

    • You can fly anything home that doesn’t need to be refrigerated! We usually take home baked goods like cupcakes, cookies, fudge, etc. Bring along a tupperware container to pack some goodies in.

  3. Thanks for a great list! You can also get a guide at the main entrance to use in the park. I you plan on taking treats home asks them to use the cello bags and individually wrap. They stay fresh for a lot longer.
    Also, is there anywhere outside the parks to enjoy the treats? Maybe at Downtown Disney or one of the hotels?
    Thanks for all the info you provide.

    • Yes! You can find many of the holiday treats in Downtown Disney and in the lobby of the Grand Californian (which will have a more limited selection) but there are options outside the parks.
