It wasn’t long ago that the Disney Parks announced they would be bringing the holiday spirit to the theme parks and resorts at Walt Disney World in Florida! But it is important to keep in mind that things won’t be looking like they have in the past.

In fact, they already announced the famous gingerbread houses won’t be returning to the Disney World Resorts and Cinderella Castle won’t have the stunning holiday lights this year.

However, Disney Parks Blog just released a full foodie guide to all of the holiday treats they will be releasing next week! From gingerbread to peppermint to salted caramel, there are several different flavors associated with the holidays and Disney is bringing these to the next level with beautiful and elevated treats.

So, before you pack up and head to the parks, be sure to check out this guide and figure out which foodie items you’ll want to try this holiday season! And if you need help planning your Disney World holiday vacation, get started here.
