We all have a favorite Walt Disney World snack. You know – that snack that you can’t go home from WDW unless you have it at least once! We love the Churros – so when I saw that the Disney Parks Blog recently published the recipe to make these treats at home, I was thrilled. They are easy to make and are delicious but I’m not sure it’s really the same as the feeling you get eating them at Walt Disney World!
There are several spots where you can get churros in Walt Disney World (my favorite are the ones at Peco Bills!):
In Epcot, head over to the Mexican Pavilion where you can get Churritos with chocolate and caramel syrup at San Angel Inn Restaurante as well as La Hacienda de San Angel. Churros with caramel dipping sauce can also be found at La Cantina de San Angel.
In the Magic Kingdom Park, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe has a churro treat perfect for snacking on while waiting for the parade go by! Available year-round, the cinnamon sugar churro bites come with a chocolate dipping sauce. Or try the Cookies ‘N Cream Churros at Tortuga Tavern.
If you like fondue, you can get churro fondue at Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs. These house-made churros come with a chocolate hazelnut sauce and vanilla ice cream.
