Between the 60-foot tall Christmas tree and Sleeping Beauty’s castle that lights up the entire sky, it’s obvious that Disneyland is going all out for the holidays. If you’re thinking about visiting this magical theme park over winter break, be sure to check out these tasty holiday-themed snacks located along the streets of Disneyland!
Peppermint Candy Cane Churros ($5.25): This is the first appearance of a holiday-themed churro at the Anaheim Disneyland park. The churro is rolled in a coating of red and white peppermint sugar along with the regular cinnamon layer. These minty churros are sold exclusively at the churro cart next to Sleeping Beauty’s castle. Although they are a little bit pricier than regular churros (a $0.50 difference), they’re only here for a limited time and definitely worth trying!
Candy Cane Beignets (3 for $4.49): These scrumptious treats are a twist on the classic Mickey-shaped beignets that are so popular at Disneyland’s New Orleans Square. Instead of coating these donut-like snacks in powdered sugar, these beignets are coated in a candy cane-flavored sugar. If you’re looking for a sit-down restaurant, you can find these at Cafe Orleans, but if you just want to take them to-go, head over to the Mint Julep Bar to grab a pack of three or six!
Yule Log ($5.00): You can find the yule log dessert at the Plaza Inn along Main Street. The log is a fluffy chocolate roll cake with a creamy filling. There’s chocolate frosting all around the cake, with a whipped frosting with red sprinkles on one side! The entire log is coated with red sugar flakes and various bits of Christmas decorations. The yule log even has a delicious apple cinnamon center that ties the whole dessert together.
Simply put, these holiday treats are a must-try for anyone who visits Disneyland over winter break. Christmas at Disneyland lasts until Jan. 8, 2018, so be sure to get your hands on these limited-time treats before they’re gone!
