Nearly nothing is free at Walt Disney World, but to me, if you can buy something for less than three dollars, then I’m going to classify that as pretty close to free, by Disney standards anyway. One of my favorite spots in all of Downtown Disney is Goofy’s Candy Co. It still amazes me when I hear people say they have never made a trip to the Mouse Downtown, too busy with theme park rides to stop by. The shopping is fabulous and features some of the best Disney theming anywhere around, including theme park gift shops and resorts. There is one snack I love the most.
There are just tons of delectable sugary delights to choose from at Goofy’s Candy Co., including cotton candy, rice krispie treats, and bagged candy for easy travel home. I love to stand around watching Cast Members creating Mickey Mouse chocolate-covered caramel apples. You can even have a Cast Member create your own specialty apple for under $10.
While I am a huge chocolate fan, I can’t walk out without a pastry, because priced at $2.29 before tax, given prices for most Disney snacks, these are practically free.
There is a case up by the check out area that houses all my breakfast favorites, like muffins, cinnamon rolls, and pastries, with some of the lowest prices in the store. They are fresh and always yummy, especially when paired with a coffee or expresso, juice, or a Goofy’s Glacier frozen drink.
Curious about what sort of drinks and coffees Goofy’s offer? Here’s an article with menu selections and prices:
Now let’s get back to that pastry. Depending on the time and day you visit, there is usually a selection of cheese, apple, or cherry pastries. $2.29, and they can travel home with you in a great Mickey Mouse to-go box, if they make it that far.
Where to eat that pastry now? If it’s not mid-day in the summer, there are tables right outside Goofy’s just calling your name. Maybe you can see some of the live birds that hang out beside the Rainforest Café. Be sure to stop in Disney’s Art of Animation to catch a glimpse of some of the artists hard at work re-creating your favorite Disney cartoons.
While you’re there, I bet you can find one of these, and they are delectable.
Where to go now? Be sure you stop by one of my favorite Downtown Disney stores. With gifts and merchandise as low as $5, you’ll soon make this a shopping destination for every trip.
Thanks for stopping by for a virtual Disney snack, and we’ll see you headed for Goofy’s Candy Co. at Downtown Disney. Like Goofy says, “Gwarsh, it’s good!!”
