Halloween at the Walt Disney World Resort

Rocky Road Gourmet Apple Returns to the Disneyland Resort

posted on October 28th, 2014 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


The Rocky Road Gourmet Apple is a long-time favorite of mine, and I’m happy to announce that this fan favorite is returning for a limited time in November. This month’s apple has been dipped in creamy caramel, enrobed in sweet milk chocolate and covered in marshmallows and diced almonds. Add a drizzle or two (maybe more) on top, and I guarantee your taste buds will be begging for more.

Try the‘Rocky Road’ Gourmet Apple this November Disneyland Resort

Look for this sweet and classic treat beginning November 1 at Candy Palace on Main Street, U.S.A., in Disneyland park; Trolley Treats on Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure park; and Marceline’s Confectionery in the Downtown Disney District.

Which apple is your favorite?

Jack Skellington takes center stage on this comfy, purple hued sweatshirt, a nod to his royal pedigree as the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town. Pair it with black denim or leggings and black flats. We chose the patent Mickey ballet flats from our merchandise collection. The Skellington print is subtly repeated in the purple and black cotton scarf, the perfect layering piece for cool fall evenings. Accessorize with an arm party featuring one of the newest Alex + Ani for Disney designs. The Jack Skellington charm bracelet is a nice touch for the season or fun any time of year when stacked with the Disneyland or Walt Disney World bracelets you may already have in your collection. And don’t be afraid to mix gold and silver tone metals. The contrast will add even more interest to your look.
