Every Role a Starring Role – Disneyland Resort Candy Makers
Tweet Hi, I’m David, external communications specialist at the Disneyland Resort. One of my roles is to produce video segments introducing you to the Resort’s talented cast members and the roles they play. In my eight years here, I have met hundreds of people who bring the magic to life and I look forward to highlighting them in the coming months.
I can’t think of a better team to start with than one I have a particular “sweet spot” for – the candy makers. One of my personal Disneyland park memories is standing on Main Street, U.S.A., as a 6-year-old, watching the parade with a handful of candy from Candy Palace and wondering, “Where did all this candy come from?”
Last week, I had the opportunity to learn how the Resort’s candy makers use their craft to create delicious treats – to be consumed in moderation of course – for millions of guests each year. They took me to three candy-making locations: Candy Palace, Marceline’s Confectionery in Downtown Disney and the main production kitchen backstage at Disney California Adventure park.
The most interesting part of the candy-making process is the level of detail that goes into each piece, making it a unique work of art. Check out this video to get a glimpse at what it’s like to be a candy maker at the Disneyland Resort.
