Disneyland Inspired Holiday Churro Guide 2020

We may earn money or other compensation from the companies or products mentioned in this post.

Disneyland Holiday churro guide 2020 has arrived, because we made it ourselves! These deliciously cheesy churros top off a jolly good time during the holidays whether at Disneyland or at home.

Each new churro is inspired by ones created at Disneyland Resort and our favorite Disney celebrations. Use these to recreate step by step at home or just as inspiration to come up with your own churro flavors during the holidays.

2020 Holidays feel completely different with new health and safety measures in place, the absence of holiday fireworks and other favorites like Festival of Holidays. But there’s one thing that I won’t let us miss out on and that’s the churros!

 

Disneyland Holiday Churros

 

Every year the chefs and culinary teams at Disneyland Resort out-do themselves with amazing eats and treats all around the resort. But this year, the task is left mostly to us at home to create Disneyland Holiday memories with Disney inspired treats. But don’t forget, Downtown Disney and Buena Vista Street are open this holiday season!

Want even more holiday season fun? Bring Disneyland to you with this easy DIY holiday craft coming soon.

Small World Holiday Disneyland Churro

This churro is inspired by “it’s a small world” Holiday that transforms our usual ride to a holiday version every winter in Fantasyland. Over 50,000 holiday lights fill every spot on the outside of “it’s a small world”, including the inside which gets a makeover of music and decor.

When all is said and done, the ride and area surrounding the attraction has more than 400,000 lights
