We have a lot of things to share and some things are not yet set in stone. In the shops you can find a few items for Hanukkah but most items are for Holidays and Christmas. Hanukkah offerings are a glass plate, goblet, coffee mug, wall hanging, pin, and a Joy & Lights pin. There are listed in Shop Parks App, 132 items for this Christmas season. If I find anything for other Winter Holidays I will let you know. Watch for mechurchlady and mousecation on Facebook and Twitter.
WDW – Everywhere
Confectioneries offer peppermint fudge and holiday treats. There are cupcakes, cake pops, rice crispies, apples, cookies, and candy decorated for the holidays. In stores, are bags of Peppermint bark, gingerbread flavored popcorn, rice treats, gingerbread mixes, hot cocoa, and more. Most of the big stores carry these items. Grand Floridian and the Contemporary are selling holiday treats including Babycakes vegan and gluten free treats.
You have to be wide awake and on the prowl for holiday items at bars, stores, restaurants, lounges, and carts. There might be a little sign on the register indicating a holiday item or the gift with purchase items. At the Coffee bar in the Contemporary there is a sign with three drinks listed. Anyone walking by would not see that sign.
There are stands and carts in the Osbourne Lights area selling adult drinks and kid friendly snacks. There are rice treats, buckets of caramel and regular popcorn, cupcakes, and cookies. They offer spiked eggnog, regular eggnog, the rum based Twinkling Twilight, the vodka based Gumdrop, peppermint hot cocoa, and a black forest shake (Min and Bill’s). Pretzel Garden offers a pumpkin spice filling stuffed into a pretzel.
