by | Apr 4, 2024 | Disneyland Parks, Disneyland Resorts, DLR Food

We’re sharing a complete guide to candy at Disneyland so you know where to head when you’re craving something sweet.

Disneyland Resort is home to so many incredible restaurants, snack spots, and treats –– and if you have a sweet tooth, you can’t skip the incredible candy selection in the theme parks, Downtown Disney, and hotels! When you’re searching for something sugary, there are numerous candy shops you can browse inside Disneyland, Disney California Adventure Park, and beyond

Best of all each of the candy shops at Disneyland has its own style and specialty treat selection, so there are plenty of choices. Below, we’re helping you decide which delectable destinations you’ll pop into during your next visit. 

Candy Shops in Disneyland Park

There are two dedicated candy shops you can visit inside Disneyland Park: Candy Palace Treats and Pooh Corner.

Candy Palace and Candy Kitchen

Candy Palace and Candy Kitchen are one and the same on Disneyland’s Main Street, which makes for one thrilling candy shopping experience. Step inside, and you can browse an expansive selection of different candies (and other sweet treats, of course) while also watching some candy-making magic in the kitchen.

In Candy Kitchen, you can see candy makers twist, dip, and bake miraculous morsels for guests to enjoy daily. Ready to try some of those incredible sweets? You can shop fresh park-made candy in Candy Palace, including options like:

  • Chocolate-covered strawberries
  • Sour gummies
  • Shortbreads
  • Cinnamon toffee bars
  • Chocolate-dipped marshmallows
  • Sugar cookies with enticing designs like pineapples and strawberries 

One of the most popular items at Candy Palace isn’t actually candy –– well, technically, it might be covered in candy! Guests can’t get enough of the specialty candy apples, which can be covered in everything from caramel to chocolate to pieces of your favorite candies. The most popular options? Apples themed after Disney characters, like Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, or even Grogu from The Mandalorian.

Pooh Corner

Location: Critter Country, tucked next to The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

Deep in the heart of Critter Country, you will find another spot to shop small, sweet smackerels: Pooh Corner. is located next to the exit of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, on the right-hand half of the Pooh Corner building.

Step inside, and you’ll feel like you’ve entered the Hundred Acre Wood –– but filled with candy and other treats! Here, you’ll find both prepackaged candy choices as well as freshly made options.

The best sweet treats here are the Pooh-themed snacks, like the candy apples with “Honey” written on them and the Tigger Tails (which are marshmallow wands decorated to look like, well, Tigger’s tail). Candy makers can be seen most days here just like at Candy Kitchen and Candy Palace, so you’ll get a sneak peek at some treats in the making.

While Pooh Corner is due to undergo a reimagining in 2024 to match the theming of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, the candy half of the shop will remain even after the transformation is complete. Disney confirmed the news (and noted it’ll still be Pooh Corner!), so you’ll still be able to head to this corner of the park for something sweet.

Where to Find Candy in Disney California Adventure Park

Like Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park is home to two dedicated candy destinations: Trolley Treats and Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff.

Trolley Treats

On Buena Vista Street, you can pop inside one of the tastiest places in the entire park when you stop by Trolley Treats! Connected to shops on either side, it’s an easy place to wander into –– and you’ll spot it easily from outside thanks to the illuminated “Candy” sign overhead. 

Inside Trolley Treats, you can browse a selection of sweet treats in the form of packaged candy and freshly made foods on display. There’s also a show kitchen here, which is a must-see. You can watch candy makers working behind a glass window from inside the shop or out on the sidewalk, where they’ll be hard at work crafting creations like the fan-favorite churro toffee and special seasonal rice crispy cereal treats, which can be themed for holidays, special park events, and more throughout the year. 

Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff

Location: Pixar Pier, next to Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind

Pixar Pier has a lot of great snack options, but if candy is on your wishlist, you’re going to want to head straight to Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff. Bing Bong, Riley’s imaginary friend from Inside Out, is ready to shower you with his candy tears of joy as you enter the most colorful store in the park.

Here, you’ll find plenty of candy (including rainbow-hued lollipops!) to consider. However, the real standout items in this shop are the Pixar-themed treats, like Forky cake pops or Green Little Men candy apples. If you prefer something more savory, there’s also a selection of colorful popcorn choices here too.

Unlike other candy shops at Disneyland Resort, Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff is also filled with merchandise. The merch and candy are mixed together, so there’s quite a bit to browse here!

Candy Shops at Downtown Disney

Want to grab some candy as you head home or to your hotel for the night? Make sure to stop by Marceline’s Confectionery in the Downtown Disney District. This old-fashioned sweet shop is named after the small town in Missouri where Walt grew up, and it offers a wide array of different sweets. From rainbow lollipops to chocolate-dipped pretzels to toffee to candy apples, it’s all here.

Sugary sweets line the walls, but you’ll also find some freshly-made treats in the shop’s glass cases. Plus, Marceline’s allows you to peer through the giant glass window at the front of the shop to see the Disneyland candy makers creating fresh concoctions (and during peak candy making times, this can draw a crowd!).

Disneyland Candy Canes: A Holiday Staple

One of the most in-demand candy treats at Disneyland Resort? Those handmade candy canes that appear only during the holiday season each year. These candy canes are so popular, guests will line up for hours to get a spot in the virtual queue for them. Check out our guide to getting one of Disneyland’s candy canes if you want to try your luck this year!

No matter what time of year, Disneyland has something for your sweet tooth. Remember these tips for your next trip and thank me later for the sugar rush!
