Candi-Sushi- Workshop  (pictured above) Disney has just released details about this exciting new offering taking place at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot’s The Land Pavilion.  During this hands-on workshop candy fans of all ages can sharpen your itamae skills as you learn to transform some of your favorite candies into colorful (and tasty) maki or nigiri style rolls.  During this session, traditional sushi ingredients have been replaced with gummies, fruit strips, crisped rice and more!  The sessions take place twice daily at 3:30 and 5:30 during festival time.  The workshop is free for Epcot guests but due to popularity, reservations are strongly encouraged and can be made via your My Disney Experience account or by calling 407.939.3378.  Guests under the ages of 7 must be accompanied by an adult.
