    If I was there trying to get one, I'd be there when the gates open. I've seen them sell out quickly...and I've also seen them sitting around in the late afternoon. But to be on the safe side, I would get there as early as possible. Besides, by getting there early you can now spend a full day at the park.....yeah, baby!!!

    Re: Candy Canes 2007 - the schedule

    Nooooo I am supposed to leave on the 8th! I am so tempted to go the morning of the 8th (if that is indeed when they are doing it) and get 2 before I leave, they look so good.

    There is a limit of two (2) per guest. Arrive early and get in line. THEY ARE PRETTY MUCH GUARENTEED TO BE GONE BY AFTERNOON.

    The Candy Makers must brave 100 degree temperatures for long stretches. The candy canes are huge and fresh. Not to be missed.
    Well I for one, am still in hopes that they will be making them on the 14th also!!! Phooey..............just when I find something cool to watch, it is snatched right out of my hands. Waahhhhhhh!

    There may be different dates, but in the last few years that I've been going to get them, they have always made them on Fridays. Just sayin...

    Re: Candy Canes 2007 - the schedule

    Since I helped make these for several years, I can tell you that if you like candy canes in the least bit, you have to try a fresh one. As far as the limited production, they are by far the hardest, hottest, most time consuming thing that is made in the candy kitchen. When I asked why we didn't make them more often, I was told that it was a dollar and cents decision since we could make much more of the other types of candy in the time it took to make a couple of dozen canes. By the way, I don't know if they still do it since it was almost twenty years ago that I worked there, but we used to make candy cane hearts filled with fudge pieces for valentines day.

    Those pictures are a great explanation of how they are made. What you can't see is that the little room has to be kept super warm in order to keep the sugar pliable. They also place the candy under a heater by the window to keep it soft while shaping it, so it doesn't break. It's very cool to watch.
    Thanks for pointing that out SusieP. In the above picture you can see the candy brick sitting in the warming area with a bunch of little flames behind it. Like Susie said, they keep the bulk in this area so it remains pliable.

    I'm glad you all enjoyed the pics!

    The dates I previously posted are the 'official' dates as passed along from the Store Operations department. As alway things can change. Take for example last year, when one of the days that Candy Canes were supposed to be made was cancelled, the reason?
    The Show Kitchen was not heated enough. In order to make the candy canes, the room must be hot.

    No. Way.

    Dear fabulous Disney Candy Palace Party People,

    This is a great find, I just called it and they tell you what they are making fresh for the entire week.
    We are going for 5 days over Thanksgiving, and will be calling it on Monday, to see if we might get lucky for the Candy Canes, since there is so much conflicting information!
    Thanks for sharing.

    I have a lot of Numbers, but that is one that I am missing.
    Thanks.

    Wish they would make them in Nov (next mon (19)-wed (21)).
    That's when I'll be there.
    Now I really want one.
    Might have to brib the friends who live there to go down early.

    Re: Candy Canes 2007 - the schedule

    We got ours today! November 23 seemed awfully early but since it was one of the original days posted we headed out just in case. We got there at about noon and the lady at the candy store said they would be making a third and final round for the day and to come back in an hour or so. We did and were the second group in line. We were lucky enough to be able to see a lot of the actual production from the line. The price has gone up $2 from last year making them a whopping $10 each. We were in line for about an hour. They told us they usually get around 45 canes out in each batch. They got 47 in our round. They were still warm when we purchased them. They are beautiful!
