Oh, yes, sweet tooth lovers and classic storefront groupies. Get ready for the news we have been waiting for! The Main Street Confectionery hosted by Mars Wrigley is reopening on Sept. 29 at Magic Kingdom Park, just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort!
Tonight, Tuesday, Sept 28th, we decided to take a stroll down Main Street U.S.A. as we had heard a whif that there may be a soft opening and to our delight, it was open! Of course, the confectionary is a landmark on Main Street U.S.A. opening with the park and luring in guests with their sweet and tempting smells. Even for someone like me, not a known “sweet tooth” guy, I love to come in here and just smell in the joy that this shop and eatery lend to the senses. It is also much more colorful, with rows and rows of sugary treats lining the walls.
When you step into this charming, turn-of-the-century sweet shop, as I mentioned, one of the first new things you’ll see is the colorful candy wall, which includes 38 varieties of M&M’S and SKITTLES! If you’re in the mood for something savory and sweet, you can now personalize your popcorn experience with multiple combinations. Select from four popcorn flavors – caramel, rainbow fruit, buttery, cheddar – and then top it all off with a selection of M&M’S or SKITTLES candies or perhaps even with some chocolate drizzle for an extra sweet treat! There is also some new fudge varieties like Peanut Butter Fudge – featuring creamy peanut butter fudge topped with M&M’S Peanut Butter Candies and drizzled with chocolate. Of course, they even have popcorn to celebrate the 50th Anniversary to eat there or take home as a souvenir to remember your time on Main Street U.S.A.
Tonight we even get a front row seat in the candy kitchen to watch cast members make and decorate your favorite “sweet a ries” like the character-inspired candy apples and Mickey crisped rice cereal treats being made and decorated. There are more than 30 new items you won’t find anywhere else!
