Foodie Friday: Churros at Walt Disney World

Happy #FoodieFriday folks! Today we’re going back in time to one of the happiest snacks of my childhood. Luckily though, no time machine is needed because you can get this delicious treat hot and fresh any day of the year at #WDW! It’s a sweetly spiced treat that’s good morning noon or night…

You may have seen the signs around, but just in case you’re not quite sure what they are, #churros are a delightful addition to any snacking schedule. They are essentially a slightly sweet dough that is piped out into long sticks, fried, and rolled in cinnamon sugar. They’re crispy, sweet, fragrant, and are certain to put a smile on your face!

I have a particular affinity for churros because when I was little, my parents used to let me eat them for breakfast at Disneyland (they’re basically a doughnut, right?!). And while they are a much bigger part of the snack food culture in California, the Florida Disney parks have some pretty great churro options!

In Magic Kingdom, find them at random #snack carts around the park, or at their home base – the Frontierland Churro Cart (I’ve been known to line up here for the 11am opening of the cart in an attempt to re-create those breakfast memories).

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, churros are available at various snack carts and also at the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater, making them a perfect snack for watching #Fantasmic! Dino Bites Snacks at Animal Kingdom and Pepper Market at the Coronado Springs Resort also carry churros!

The most unique churros on property can be found at Epcot (fresh, authentic churros with caramel sauce at La Cantina de San Angel) and Disney Springs (they have a great churros and sopapillas combo with dipping sauces at Paradiso 37).

Other than at Paradiso 37 and Pepper Market, all of the churros are around $4 or one #DisneyDiningPlan snack credit.

While I love the churro options available at WDW, I’d love to see a specialty flavor (like chocolate chili) at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival!

What’s your favorite time of day to eat a churro at WDW? Breakfast, midday treat, or late night snack?

  1. Where can you get the best burger in WDW? My daughter-in-law will be going down in 2016 and she is a burger freak.

  2. Great question! It all depends on personal taste but I love Pecos Bills for the toppings bar, Sci Fi Dine In is a classic choice, and Landscapes of Flavor has interesting options! I hear good things about Liberty Tree Tavern lunch, Rose and Crown Dining Room, and Raglan Road and am looking forward to trying them on my next trip!

  3. I heard they are getting rid of churros in Disney World. That can’t be right, can it??? Yikes!

  4. I haven’t heard that and I would be very surprised for that to happen – it’s extremely popular!
