You'll have to a major stock up while you are down there, so that you'll have enough to tide you over till the next trip.

I did pick up several bags to bring home last trip, but since my wife and son also like them, needless to say they didn't last long

They are awesome for that little kick while touring the parks or waiting on line

Mmmmm! That candy sounds good! I've gotta figure out if they still have those giant gummi bears in Germany at WS and if so, if there happens to be a cinnamon one! I love cinnamon gummie bears but I didn't really look for any at WDW....

A great thing to do on a non park day Go to Comtemparary and catch the Electric Water Parade from the dock, A great view, not crowded, plus quick exit
Parade passes by right after the fireworks, (you will not get a good view of the fireworks BT is in the way) but with only a handful of people waiting at the dock it's like a VIP viewing

Sounds like a really good plan to me. Gotta find some good Sugar Free goodies for DS 8 and I while we are down there, as we are both off sugar due to going Paleo (no sugar, grains and legumes).

we get the big bag of mint lifesavers. lately , we also bring gum with us.
it was about 10 years ago, i didnt realize you cant buy a pack of gum on disney property. i asked a cm in a gift shop if they sold gum and she said you will not find gum for sale on disney property. she said people stick it all over and they figure if they didnt sell it, it would cut down on the scapping it off everything. check it out the next time you go down, see if you can find gum on property for sale.

If you ask the right CM they will tell you something like "Oh no! We don't sell gum! Mickey doesn't like gum." One CM told a woman in front of us in line at a Main St shop that Donald got gum stuck in his feathers once when the woman asked why WDW doesn't sell gum.

Can you really blame them for not selling gum in the parks in general?? There's nothing worse than stepping in it, or sitting on a piece of gum. And unless you know how to remove it's sticky residue, it can be a royal pain in the you know what. If people were responsible with it, it would be a different matter, but many people feel that the best place for it after chewing it is dropping it onto various surfaces other than where it belongs, which it in the garbage can.

I wonder if they find a pack of gum in your bag if they confiscate it, I'm not big with gum so I've never had it on me at the parks

My wife gets the sugar free candy, best places to find them are in the stores in the park that sell candy loose. There is at least 1 store in every park

I think I'll have to ask them in the stores, seeing what answer they will give seems kinda fun

Nice I wish I could do a solo trip to WDW (the ground I could cover), but the powers that be (wife & son) would never go for it

Hope you have a blast

What do you have planned

They do not - they simply don't sell it.
