Goofy’s Candy Company is a sweet tooth’s go-to destination. The shop is located in Downtown Disney’s in the Marketplace section. Here guests will find lots of different types of candy and other sweet treats such as pecan clusters, cupcakes, slushies, caramel apples, taffy, cookies, fudge, jelly beans, lollipops, and much, much more. This is NOT a ‘kids only’ destination…there is something there for anyone at any age.
When guests step inside the candy shop, two things are evident: Goofy is in charge with his whimsical, colorful design, and it smells heavenly. This is an ‘interactive’ candy store; there are opportunities to create your own confection fantasy right there.
The first major area is design your own frozen slushy drink (think Slurpee). You start by putting together a container by selecting a bottom (or ‘feet’), a middle (holds the drink) and a top (like mouse ears). Then, you can fill the cup with any of the eight flavors available! Flavors typically include options like Pucker Purple, Goofy’s Glacier Apple, Rootin’ Tootin’ Red, Orange You Happy Orange, Gawrshly Berry Blue and Coca-Cola Cooler. What’s great is that you can even mix and match whatever flavors you would like. You will also get to keep the specially designed for you cup and if you bring it back with you, you can buy a refill at a cheaper price. This is one place where it is okay to bring a cup back during later visits.
The second section, which really is the centerpiece of the store, is a mini treat-making factory. Pick up a green order form and mark off what you would like made especially for you. You can choose from a caramel apple, three pretzel rods, four marshmallows, a gingerbread Mickey cookie, or a Mickey crispy rice treat. Once you’ve selected your treat, you’ll choose one flavor for dipping. The treats can be dipped in your choice of white chocolate, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate. Next, select a topping from sprinkles, chopped peanuts, mini M&Ms, peanut butter chips, chopped pecans, crushed Oreos, sliced almonds, dark and white chocolate chips, crushed Butterfingers, cinnamon and sugar, Reese’s Pieces, coconut, or graham cracker crumbs. (Additional toppings are available for an additional cost.) Finally, you can choose one type of drizzle—white chocolate, dark chocolate, or milk chocolate. After making all of those selections, hand the order to one of Goofy’s candy makers and they make it for you right then and there.
The shop also has three other areas for shopping. First is the pre-bagged candy—everything from cotton candy to taffy! Second, you’ll find a wall of Jelly Belly Jelly Beans where you can make your own bagged combination. Finally is the candy counter where you can choose from many different sweet treat offerings like special cupcakes, themed caramel apples, cookies, fudge, pretzel rods, and crispy rice treats.
If you are not into candy and just want something to ‘wet your whistle’ Goofy also serves up cold sodas (in plastic bottles).
For those who may be looking for a fun and unique birthday party idea, Goofy’s Candy Company includes a party room for celebrating special occasions. Call 407-WDW-BDAY for reservations.
Goofy’s Candy Company is the perfect place to go when you are looking for a great treat.
Consider stopping here before heading home. It’s a great place to stock up on goodies to remind you of a great trip! This is especially true if you are on the Disney Dining Plan and have extra snack credits to use.
When purchasing a crispy rice treat, seriously consider having it specially made, as you get the topping included on both sides. When purchasing a pre-made crispy rice treat, it is typically only covered with the topping on the back side.
