So, today, I’m going to show you what your summer could look like if you ate your way through every Pixar Fest Churro cart at Disneyland.
It’s time to visit Disneyland, readers … for a Pixar Fest of Churros!
The Snipe Churro
Up! fans can enjoy a churro themed after Russell’s brightly colored bird, Kevin, from the movie. Covered in multi-colored sugar that is fruity and lemon flavored, this one is bright and bold, just like Kevin. Look for these at the Town Square Churro Cart in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland.
With bright pink sugar, this churro has Lots-o’s trademarked strawberry scent and flavor to match! The Strawberry churro can be found at the Tomorrowland Churro Cart in Disneyland.
Pixar’s most recent movie, Coco, is featured in a chocolate churro topped with chocolate powder, vanilla bean, and salted cinnamon sugar. Served with Mexican chocolate dipping sauce, it can be found at the Frontierland Churro Cart in Disneyland. This is most certainly my pick for chocolate fans!
“Choose Your Racer” Churros
In Cars Land at California Adventure, guests can pick from three colored sugars themed after the “Cars” movies – red for Lightning McQueen, blue for Storm, and yellow for Cruz. Look for these at Cozy Cone Motel throughout Pixar Fest.
Getting a TON of buzz are the final two churros of Pixar Fest. First up is the Iced Specialty Churro at the Churro Cart near a Bug’s Land in California Adventure. It is drizzled with doughnut icing and dusted with cocoa cereal.
And last … but definitely not least … is the Carrot Cake Churro. It’s a very interesting choice, Disney. And that’s what most people have said until they tried it. Now, it’s arguably the best on the list. So, thank you, Disney! I did not know I needed this in my life until now! This nondescript little churro is rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with raisin-carrot cream cheese frosting. Look for the Carrot Cake Churro at the Churro Cart in New Orleans Square at Disneyland.
Well, that’s the list … for now! It seems like each day, a new churro pops up at Disneyland for Pixar Fest. I can’t wait to try all of them on my trip this summer! Who’s ready to join me?
