When it comes to snacks at the Disney theme parks, only a few have reached cult-like status. You have Dole Whips, Mickey Ice Cream Bars and of course Churros! But what a lot of visitors don’t realize is that we’ve come a long way from the standard cinnamon sugar churros varieties. Across the parks on both sides of the country, you’ll find an eclectic array of churros on offer. To give you just a taste of some of the varieties you’ll find, here’s our list of 11 churro snacks you’ll want to be on the lookout for during your next Disney visit.
1. S’mores Churros – Disneyland – (pictured) You’ll find this flavorful treat at the New Orleans Churro Cart or the Churro Cart near Splash Mountain. It really conjures up the taste of childhood campfires with a dusting of graham cracker and a marshmallow-chocolate dipping sauce.
2. Pixar-themed Churros- Pixar Fest- Disney California Adventure – Pixar Fest officially kicks off in just a few short weeks and it is going to be a Churro-lovers Paradise! You’ll find three different varieties on offer: The Snape Churro (above) fashioned after the much-loved Pixar film “UP”, the Lots-O-Straw-“Bear”-y Churro after your favorite strawberry smelling Toy Story bear and the Coco-Churro with chocolate powder, vanilla bean salted cinnamon sugar & Mexican dipping sauce.
3. Sour Watermelon Churros – Disneyland – Of all the flavors of churros we’ve seen come out of Disney, this one has to be our favorite.
