Finding Dory swims into theaters on June 17, 2016, but that won’t be the only place you will be able to catch Dory and friends. Here’s a look at what Disney Parks and Disney World Resorts will be doing in conjunction with the movie’s release.
Disneyland and Disney World Resort debuts some very special Dory treats beginning May 22nd. Be on the look out for these two confectionery delights that the talented team of candy makers at Disney have created. These gourmet apples inspired by Nemo and Dory. It’s hard to believe that these are caramel apples and even harder to resist taking a bite out of them.
The Nemo apple has been dipped in caramel, enrobed in white chocolate and then delicately rolled in orange and white sanding sugar, with uniquely cut and dipped marshmallows applied for his fins. Add a few dark chocolate accents for the striping and he’s ready swim with you.
As for Dory? The apple has been dipped in caramel and white chocolate and rolled in blue sanding sugar. The fins are once again crafted from marshmallows that are dipped in chocolate and rolled in yellow sanding sugar. Add on a few dark chocolate accents in all the right places and she’s unforgettable.
Here are the locations you can find them being sold at:
• Disneyland Park – Candy Palace on Main Street, U.S.A., and Hunny Spot in Critter Country
• Disney California Adventure Park – Trolley Treats
• Downtown Disney District – Marceline’s Confectionery
Walt Disney World Resort
• Magic Kingdom Park – Big Top Souvenirs
• Disney Springs West Side – Disney’s Candy Cauldron
Swim on over to one of these locations on your next visit to give them a try. They would, also, make a great gift for someone special or a nice take home souvenir.
Turtle Talk Updated:
This summer, Crush the sea turtle will be getting some company in the “Human Tank” at Epcot and Disney California Adventure park, when Dory and some of her new friends join the “Turtle Talk with Crush” attraction. You’ll be able to meet Destiny the whale shark, Bailey the beluga whale and Hank the “septopus” (that’s a seven-legged octopus, of course!). Crush’s very own mini-man Squirt will also be swimming by for the first time, and you might even catch a glimpse of Nemo and his dad Marlin.
Fans of Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Nemo” will be happy to see some new merchandise, that guests may find on their next visit to Disney Parks, revealed on the the Disney Parks Blog.
The updated assortment includes a host of items including apparel, home décor, pins, seasonal goods, which include a Dory-themed ear hat.
There is a shirt with Bruce the shark, one with the phrase “Mr. Grumpy Gills,” and one that shows you how to speak whale like Dory.
The “Mr. Grumpy Gills” artwork was also used on a D-Tech phone case. Other “adoryable” apparel includes turtles Crush and Squirt as well as Dory.
Finally, guests will find new mugs, magnets, a mystery pin set and a detailed Dory-themed ear hat ornament.
