    "candy canes will be every monday and friday in Disneyland and every Thursday and Saturday in DCA at Trolley Treats starting nov 23rd." Found on Mousewait. Also posted is "Wristbands will be distributed at the locations at park opening... The park will open at the same time for everyone." So there will be no MM/EE at whichever park is selling candy canes each date. Hope this helps everyone. :)

    I didn't get one. (Won't be at the park till next month.) but they're supposed to distribute wristbands at whichever location you are buying the candy canes at.

    OK dumb question, but as far as taste/texture go are they the same as a regular, store bought candy cane? Or are they better/different? I know it is mostly about the experience but I'm just curious as to what the final product is actually like?

    Thanks for the info. Good to have a set(ish) schedule. Looks like I won't be able to get one though. Only day of our trip they're being made is the 18th but there's no way the rest of my family will be willing to head up there that early (we live 1 1/2-2 hours away and I've heard one would need to arrive extremely early to get one.)

    To me they taste just the same as the same jumbo Candy Cane you get at any store for about $10.00 less than what Disney is charging. Sorry, but this is one of the things that is way over hyped on these boards and I regret falling for that hype last year.

    So if you are doing this I suggest going to DCA. Managed to get three bands without really trying this morning

    Your welcome. As you can see I am in the minority here, but it's just the way I feel.

    I read elsewhere that they are handing out wristbands at the turnstiles this year to avoid the rush to the Candy Palace. Is this true? Has anyone seen this? I don't get how this would work. Would there be a dedicated gate or would each gate just have a few available

    I know of one person who got one on Friday. She went to the Candy Palace for her wristband. They limited it to 1 candy cane per wristband.
