Downtown Disney Churros: Where to Find Them & Variety of Flavors – 2024

Looking for churros at Downtown Disney? 🌟

Despite my countless trips to Disney, it wasn’t until my recent visit that I decided to dive into the world of their churros. 🎡 Sure, I think I had one at Walt Disney World once, but it barely left a mark. Maybe it’s because Disneyland’s churros are rumored to be much, much better. 🤤

My youngest son was so excited about our trip because he couldn’t wait to have another Disneyland churro. His excitement rubbed off on me, making me really want to find out why these treats are so loved.

After my first bite, I got it. I’m now officially on the churro train.

In this post, we’ll uncover where to find this sought-after snack in Downtown Disney and dive into the different types of churros you’ll find there.

Ready to get started? Let’s jump in! 🏃🏻‍♀️💨

Where to Find Churros at Downtown Disney

In Downtown Disney, you can find churros at two convenient locations.

The California Churro Cart, your go-to spot for churros, is strategically placed at both ends. One cart is near the monorail station and directly across from The LEGO Store. (Great for those staying at the Disneyland Hotel.)

The other cart is positioned closer to the parks, just outside the World of Disney store. (Great for those staying at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.)

Whether you’re on your way to the park, leaving after a day of adventures, or simply enjoying a non-park day, a Downtown Disney churro from this cart is the perfect treat.

These ideal locations mean you’re never far from enjoying a delicious churro, adding an extra touch of sweetness to your Disney adventure, regardless of the occasion.

We often visited the cart by the World of Disney. Nearby, there’s a perfect little nook with rocks and a waterfall feature where you can sit back and savor your churro in peace.

Variety of Churros at Downtown Disney

The California Churro Cart in Downtown Disney offers a diverse menu that includes both classic and gourmet churros. They offer a rotating menu and many flavors are offered only seasonally.

Classic churros come warm and fresh, featuring flavors like:

  • Cinnamon 🍂
  • Strawberry 🍓
  • Oreo 🖤
  • Apple Pie 🍏
  • Fruity Pebble 🌈
  • Salty Caramel 🧂

If you’re looking for something a bit different, the gourmet churros add an extra touch with special flavors, drizzles, and dipping sauces:

  • Grandma’s Homemade Apple Pie 🍏: With caramel drizzle and a side of vanilla ice cream.
  • Cookie Butter 🍪: Topped with cookie butter drizzle and served with vanilla ice cream.
  • Oreo Cheesecake 🖤: Featuring chocolate drizzle and cream cheese frosting for dipping.
  • Strawberry Cheesecake 🍓: With strawberry drizzle and cream cheese frosting on the side.

As you can see the California Churro Cart is the perfect spot to explore a wide range of churro options, from the traditional to the unique.

Our Downtown Disney Churro Sampling Adventure

Let’s get one thing straight: we didn’t tackle all these churros in just one day. 🤣 Our delicious journey stretched over a few days.

Wondering, just how many days you need at Disneyland? be sure to check out… How Many Days Do You Need at Disneyland California? Planning Your Perfect Trip.

First off, we couldn’t skip the classic churro. With its perfect blend of cinnamon and sugar, it’s a crowd-pleaser for a reason. Honestly, it deserves a solid 5/5 stars 🌟. It’s just that good! (And yes, we enjoyed it more than once on this trip! 🤪)

Next, we tried the Cookie Butter churro with a side of vanilla ice cream. Wow, it was incredible! 🤩 Rich and sweet, it’s one of those treats you might consider sharing due to its decadence. A standout for sure, and it effortlessly secures a 5/5 stars 🌟 rating from me. This is a treat I’d gladly enjoy again and again.

Lastly, we gave the Oreo Cheesecake churro a try. This one was okay, landing a 3/5 stars 🌟 from us. I love Oreos and cheesecake, but somehow, this churro didn’t quite live up to my expectations. It was worth a try, but it’s not something I’d order again.

Churro Pricing 🏷️

Classic Churros are set at $6.25 each, and Gourmet Churros go for $7.99.

Considering Disneyland’s usual pricing, these amounts seem pretty fair for a fresh, handcrafted snack 🍽️. In a place where a bottle of water can cost $5-6, and we’ve even spent $4.25 on a small bag of Cheetos, the price of these churros feels like a good deal in the grand scheme of Disneyland treats 💧🧀.
