When we plan a day at the Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom we often think of building Magical Memories through Photo Ops, Shows and FastPasses. Rather than rushing to one of the “Lands,” have you ever spent a morning just meandering through the shops along Main Street, USA? The Main Street Confectionery offers a Chef of the Day experience that is sure to build Magical Memories for you and your child that will last a lifetime.
Many of us have stopped here for a few moments to watch as Main Street Confectionery Cast Members create amazing treats. If you are standing here just at the right moment, this space will transform into a busy space for children to create their very own treats.
If you happen to see this cart coming from the back room, you are in Luck! They will allow the first 3-4 children to partake in this fun and engaging experience known as Chef of the Day.
The experience begins with these newly appointed Chefs each receiving a Main Street Confectionery Chef of the Day Chef’s Hat and a pair of gloves. The Cast Members assist the Chefs with adjusting their hats to fit on their heads and ensuring that they place the food service gloves on properly. During this process, parents are questioned about any food allergies before the children are given a treat to decorate. The Chefs then receive directions to be creative and have fun while decorating their treats. On this particular day the children received a cake pop to decorate and two marshmallows on a stick as an added bonus. There was white chocolate frosting and four bowls of colored sugar for the Chefs to decorate to their heart’s content. When their treat is ready, each newly appointed Chef is given a plastic container to place their treat in to take back to their resort, or home, with them. Good luck making it out of the Main Street Confectionery with that treat still in the plastic container though!
There is no set time for the Main Street Confectionery Chef of the Day experience. The times are random and for safety reasons, there cannot be a long line at the bakery counter when they bring out the rolling cart with the Chef of the Day goodies. We happened to be in there a little past noon on the Saturday before Easter. The first showing of the Festival of Fantasy Parade was making its way down Main Street, USA so there were not a lot of people inside at that time. Cast Member Yaradeliz has been working at the Main Street Confectionery a number of years now and she was very helpful with explaining these facts about this memorable experience.
The Chef of the Day is not new to the Main Street Confectionery. However, this experience is a little known hidden gem that you may just stumble upon unknowingly. If you are looking to find something different to add to your list of Magical Memories, then the Main Street Confectionery’s Chef of the Day may just be the unexpected experience you did not even know was on your list!
