Disney Holiday Churros You Need To Try!

Travel Tip! Crazy about churros? Read our guide for the Best Disneyland Churros!

Cherry Pistachio Churro- Churro cart in Hollywood Land, Disney California Adventure

We were definitely not sure about the combination of flavors for this churro; cherry and pistachio together just seemed a little weird. Ultimately we decided to try this one, and it did not disappoint. The cherry pistachio churro was rolled in cookie bits, drizzled with a cherry sauce, and topped with crushed pistachios. It’s a messy churro, so definitely get napkins and wipe your face off when you’re done! No one wants to walk around Disneyland with Churro sauce all over their face!

Abuelitas chocolate is a staple in Hispanic culture, so we figured the Abuelitas churro wouldn’t disappoint, and we were right! This churro, paired with a condensed milk dipping sauce, definitely created that creamy Abuelitas chocolate flavor that we all love so much.

disneyland holiday peppermint churro

Peppermint churro- Churro Cart near Grizzly Peak, Disney California Adventure

As we all know, peppermint is a staple in all of our favorite Christmas treats and snacks. This churro takes peppermint to the next level as it is topped with crushed candy cane and drizzled with a chocolate vanilla sauce. This one is pretty messy, so be sure to grab napkins!

disney gingerbread cookie

Gingerbread cookie- Jolly Holiday, Disneyland Park

This Gingerbread cookie is super famous and is one of those items you do not want to wait on as it can typically sell out pretty early on in the day. It was probably our favorite special holiday treat from Disney. They did this gingerbread cookie exactly right, and we couldn’t imagine it any other way! The cookie was chewy, moist, and had the perfect gingerbread flavor.

disneyland peppermint hot cocoa

Peppermint hot chocolate: French Market Restaurant, Disneyland Park

This peppermint hot chocolate was very creamy and smooth while also being not too sweet. Plus, during the colder winter months, it definitely is nice to have a warm beverage. Let’s just say in the freezing rainy weather, this warm hot cocoa tasted like the best thing ever, but maybe I’m being dramatic. Anyways definitely try it!

disneyland cookies and cream hot cocoa

Cookies and cream hot cocoa: Festival of Holidays, Disney California Adventure

Okay, now for this one. This was the absolute best hot cocoa ever. The cookies and cream flavoring really stand out in this cocoa. We had never tasted anything like it, so definitely look out for this cocoa at the Festival Marketplace booths during the holidays!

Gingerbread Milkshake Flo’s V8 Cafe: Disney California Adventure

This Gingerbread milkshake was actually pretty great and wasn’t too sweet. The shake isn’t too thick nor too runny and is topped off with a whipped topping and a cute little Gingerbread cake doughnut! So, while you get to drink the shake, you can munch on the doughnut topper in between drinks!

disney churro drink

disneyland holiday drink taro cold brew

Cold Brew Black Caf With Taro Topper: Galaxys Edge, Disneyland

At first, I wasn’t sure I would like this cold brew. To be honest, coffee at Disneyland can either be s trng yes or a buzzkill. Luckily this cold brew is the perfect amount of sweetness and creaminess without overpowering the coffee flavor. The taro milk topper is absolutely phenomenal, and I loved it! Definitely recommend it, and if you’re a fan of this one, then you’ll also love the original version with coco puffs on top ?.

They also usually bring back some things, but with the smallest twist, so chances are if you liked something a previous year and see a new version with a tiny change, we recommend trying it!

Also, keep on the lookout for their crazy amount of churro flavors. The treats they served for the 2022 year were amazing. We can’t wait to see what Disney holiday treats there are in 2023. Travel Tip: Bring loose pants while enjoying these sweet and delicious treats; you’ll need them ?.
