Goofy's Candy Company at Downtown Disney

Picture it:  You are on the last day of your Walt Disney World vacation, with only a few hours remaining, so you choose to spend the rest of your time soaking up the Disney atmosphere by visiting Downtown Disney.

It's a great way to get that extra Disney magic.  So, you go around the shopping/dining district. You have lunch at one of the many restaurants, you buy a few last minute souvenirs, you take your last few Disney photos. But what you should also do whenever you make a stop on your Walt Disney World vacation to Downtown Disney is to make sure you stop at Goofy's Candy Co.

Goofy's is found on the Marketplace section and the brightly-colored store is famous for their sweet treats.  One reason why this is a must stop for me is that the place serves up anything sweet you can think of: cookies, cupcakes, fudge, and caramel apples.  The middle section of the store features a couple of large cases filled with wonderful delicacies.  The options are so varied.

 Looking for something to take maybe back to your hotel room and enjoy throughout the rest of your trip? Along the outer walls, you'll find pre-bagged, as well as bulk candy options. They even offer quite a few sugar free choices.

Of course the thing they are most famous for are the create your own options. They actually have two create your own sections.  The first is the Goofy's Glaciers.  If it's hot out or you are a fan of slushies, you absolutely need to make a stop in here as they serve up some of the best options.

Guests can choose a cup (which comes with fun toppers and feet you get to pick out). You will then get to choose which flavors of slushie go into the cup.  There are eight flavors to choose from and you can mix and match however you choose!

The second section (and my favorite) is the create your own treat option. This is, by far to me, the best reason to make a stop at Goofy's. 

Guests pick up a form and choose which type of treat they want.  Options include apples, rice krispy treats, marshmallows, gingerbread cookies, and pretzel rods.  After that decision, you choose whether you want your treat coated in dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate. Then you can choose one topping from a multitude of toppings, such as Reeces pieces, chocolate chips, M&Ms, nuts, white chocolate chips, coconut, graham cracker crumbs, Oreos, and much more.  After that, you get to choose to have your treat drizzled with milk chocolate, white chocolate, or dark chocolate.

Once you turn in your form and pay for the treat, the magic starts to work.  A Cast Member will create your treat and they make sure to COVER it!

This is honestly my preferred choice of treat from Goofy's because the treats cost the same as those that can be found in the large cases and many times are coated better with topping. Plus, you can choose to have them made your way. Nothing is better than that!  A customized treat.

The Cast Member will then call out your name and you can collect your treat!  It will look something like this: 

So why do I love Goofy's Candy Co. and why do I think you should to?  Because if you are in the mood for something sweet, they have it.  It really is your one stop shop.  Best of all, because of the portability, I think these treats are super easy to take home with you to have as a Disney Blues snack.
