The first in our series of posts on Disneyland classic snacks. We take a closer look at Disneyland Churros. What people love about them, the variations on the original snack and where you can find churros at Disneyland.
Welcome to another Disney Friends Blog Hop. This month, the theme of our blog hop is Disney Snacks. We all have a different take on this theme so after you are done reading our post click on the arrow to move to another great Disney Blog to see what they have to say on this subject.
What is a churro?
Churros are a fried-dough pastry that are covered in sugar. They originated in Spain and Portugal where they are commonly eaten at carnivals, fairs and other celebrations. The classic Disneyland churro is a long ridged stick that is fried hard and rolled in cinnamon and sugar. They are sold from churro carts around the park and are best eaten hot. Disneyland churros have long held classic snack or must-eat snack status with many Disneyland regulars.
Variations on the classic churro
In the past few years Disneyland has capitalized on the popularity of the classic churro and have started offering lots of variations for people to try.
Some of these variations are seasonal or limited-time offerings, while others, like the churro bites are available year round. (If you are looking for them, the churro bites can be found year round at the Cozy Cone in Carsland).
With each year the seasonal churros get more interesting and elaborate. Definitely check to see what specialty options are available at Christmas and Halloween as there are usually several options available at different locations.
Not sure where to find churros at Disneyland? Most churros can be purchased from churro snack carts located in both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. The locations of these carts can be found in the Disneyland app. Read our post on 10+ Reasons Why You Need the Disneyland App for more information.
Where to find churros
There is also an independent churro cart in Downtown Disney that has the famous churro ice cream sandwiches.
We highly recommend trying a churro as a late night snack. Warm from the cart that smell of tantalizing cinnamon and sugar can't be beat!
