Hand-Pulled Disneyland Candy Canes 2022Hand pulled candy canes

Disneyland has announced that the popular Disneyland hand-pulled candy canes will return in 2022 to both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. These candy canes are only sold on select dates in each park. This will have to be your first morning destination if you hope to secure one of these elusive treats. 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. No discounts are applicable for candy canes.


Both the Candy Palace and Trolley Treats have specific alternating days that they make the candy canes. The candy canes sell for $15.99 each and are 5 oz each. Annual Pass discounts are not applicable for purchasing a Candy Cane.

The 2022 dates haven't been announced yet but here are the past 2021 dates for reference.

In Disneyland the 2021 dates for the candy canes at the Candy Palace are:

December 7, 9, 15, 21, and 23

In Disney California Adventure the 2021 dates for the candy canes at Trolley Treats are:

December 8, 14, 16, and 22

The process for getting a Disneyland Candy Cane has shifted a little bit this year. They will no longer rely on wristbands and instead will utilized a mobile waitlist. Follow the below steps to secure a Disneyland Candy Cane this year.

  1. Arrive to the park an hour before official park opening so that you can be one of the first guests into the park
  2. Right when the gates open, head to the location in that park selling the Candy Cane! No running allowed, but move those legs quickly to get there.
  3. You'll get to the location and get in line to get on the mobile waitlist in order to receive a return time to purchase. Disney has shifted this part of the process this year so we don't have specifics yet. In prior years if you were one of the first to arrive you could purchase a candy cane immediately. No word on if this part will continue.
  4. You'll then come back at your return time sent to you and wait in line to purchase.

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.

  4. Can you tell me if the fireworks and other nighttime spectaculars take place and if holiday snacks are available on the WEEKDAYS during the first week of January. We are planning a trip January 2-5, 2022. Thanks.

    • Usually the holiday season continues until the first week of January (in the past this is usually January 5-6) so yes, these should still be available.
