    Meredyth from KY Asked

    Visiting for Christmas and was told by a friend to find treats that are only made this time of year. She mentioned ice cream and cupcakes. Any suggestions for treats to look for? This is our first Christmas visit and we can't hardly stand the wait!!

    There couldn't be a more festive time of year to eat your way around Walt Disney World, Meredyth.  Let's see if I can offer you some ideas.

    For starters, you will be able to find several everyday type of treats specially packaged for the holidays.  For example, you'll spot gummi candies, chocolate bars and chocolate-dipped pretzels in Christmas packaging.  These types of items make great stocking stuffers, but they're not the unique food items I think you're inquiring about.

    More festive foodie items can be found at Epcot.  Look for cinnamon-glazed nuts at a kiosk in France or a peppermint cupcake at the Boardwalk Bakery.  Most every bakery display case on property, in fact, will be overflowing with gingerbread men cookies, holiday candied and caramel apples, and cookies shaped like Christmas trees, snowmen and stockings.  Multiple locations will have holiday-flavored fudge available.  Guests can also find special holiday adult beverages throughout the Walt Disney World Resort (think Bailey's and spiked apple ciders).

    Of all the holiday treats my family has enjoyed at Disney, though, my favorite were the roasted chestnuts from the Grand Floridian.  Nothing says Christmas quite like that!
