Christmas at Disneyland is a truly a magical time! During the holidays, Disneyland offers festive entertainment, dining, attractions, and more. While visiting the Happiest Place on Earth, I tried some of the special holiday treats at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Read on for my review of Disneyland’s 2023 Holiday Treats!
Holiday Gray Stuff – Red Rose Taverne
At the Red Rose Taverne, I tried the holiday version of the classic “Gray Stuff” from Beauty and the Beast! This dessert is listed on the menu as “Traditional Grey Stuff with Holiday Sprinkles and a White Chocolate Star”. I thought the Holiday Gray Stuff was both tasty and festive!
Christmas Tree Cone – Cozy Cone Motel
Over at Disney California Adventure, I had to try to Christmas Tree Cone at the Cozy Cone Motel. Located at Cozy Cone 2, this treat is “Peppermint Soft Serve decorated with Holiday Sprinkles”. I absolutely loved the Christmas Tree Cone!
Christmastime Popcorn – Near Haunted Mansion
At the popcorn stand near Haunted Mansion, I found Christmastime Popcorn. This treat is “Freshly popped buttered popcorn served with M&M’S chocolate candies and mini marshmallows”. I mostly enjoyed the combination of sweet and salty in this snack. I would suggest making sure the popcorn has been recently popped before purchasing!
Dulce de Leche Shake – Schmoozies!
The Dulce de Leche shake is one of the holiday offerings at Schmoozies in Disney California Adventure. This beautiful shake comes with “Whipped Topping, Caramel Sauce and Vanilla Crème Cookies”. I really liked this festive shake and would definitely recommend it!
Chocolate Cake Snow Globe – Jolly Holiday
Another Holiday dessert I tried was the Chocolate Cake Snow Globe at Jolly Holiday. On the menu this item is described as “Layers of chocolate sponge cake, truffle mousse, and chocolate glaze topped with a buttercream tree, red and white pearls, a chocolate star, and snow powder”. I decided to try this dessert because I thought it looked so cute. When I tried it, I found the taste matched the presentation!
Hot Chocolate – Various Locations
Because it was a chilly evening, I also got a cup of hot chocolate to go with my Chocolate Cake Snow Globe. It was a perfect way to end a cold night at Disneyland Park!
Mickey Gingerbread – Various Locations
My absolute favorite holiday treat at Disneyland was the Mickey Gingerbread! This Mickey-shaped cookie is super soft and the perfect amount of gingerbread flavoring. Because this treat is so popular, it can be purchased at several locations including Jolly Holiday, Market House, Red Rose Taverne, Aunt Cass Cafe, Fiddler, Fifer & Practical, and the Grand Californian. I thought this treat was delicious that I even bought one to bring home with me!
