Candy apples!

I am always on a "diet" when I go to disney and never get any of the chocolate apples or pretzels (my fav!). (I eat plenty - fish and chips at Epcot were awesome last time but managed to not top it off with a chocolate confection)
This time I'm pregnant and I've decided that I'm eating my darn apple! Which one is the best? Or are they not so awesome and a chocolate pretzel or marshmallow is better?

Go to Goofy's Candy Company and create your own apple, pretzel rods, marshmallows, or cookie: pick your toppings! Whatever you like, you can have it custom made for you.

Depends on what exactly you are looking for. Are you looking for an acutal "candy" apple or a "caramel" apple? The candy apple is with the hard, crunchy sugar red candy shell that gets stuck in your teeth. The caramel is of course, caramel.

The only place I have seen the candy apples is at Goofys. The caramel apples can be found everywhere. A very good one is at Big Top Treats in the new Fantasyland but I think they are pretty standard across the parks.

Oh, I forgot about Karamel Kruch. That was actually the BEST caramel apple I have ever had anywhere.

Will they slice them for you? Or do you have to eat it off the stick?

Just Do it!

I agree that Hollywood Studios Villian Store (on the road towards Tower of Terror) is the best place for caramel apples.

Be sure not to ask for a candy apple or the Wicked Witch behind the counter will yell at you. I'm not kidding - this is a fair representation of the woman working in the Villian Store when I was there last week...

She was so mean I actually thought she was in character. After yelling at me for saying Candy Apple instead of Caramel Apple, I asked her if it was possible to get the apple sliced. She said "I have would have to do it." I said, "Would you be able to cut the apple." She said, "I would have to do it". I said "Could you cut the apple? Do you have something to cut it with?" She said "I have me. I have to do it." This went back and forth for a while. I didn't understand her remark that she has to do it and then her just standing there, but apparently she was waiting for me to say please instead of just "Would you" and "Could you". But I really didn't see anything behind her counter to cut the apple with and she wasn't moving at all. I didn't know if she had some tool to cut it with or if she was just going to cut it with her evil glare. In the end I said the magic word that broke her evil spell - well sort of - she huffed and scowled as she sawed the apple into four huge quarters with a kitchen knife.

I went for the one covered in chocolate on top of the caramel, with peanuts on the bottom and two marshmallow ears. I recommend it!

The cupcakes at Starring Rolls are good if you like peanut butter in dark chocolate.
