Disneyland Released Their Magical Churro Recipe And We Made It At Home

I haven’t been to a Disney park in a hot minute, and let’s be honest, I’m missing that Disney magic pretty badly. With many people cooking from home these days, Disney noticed that a fair amount of them were trying to recreate the magic of some of the park’s foods in their home kitchens.

While the parks themselves are currently closed, Disney Parks Blog has released their famous churro recipe so fans can properly capture that magic from home.

Foodbeast Marc, and self-proclaimed Mousketeer, decided to recreate Disney’s churro recipe at his home and shot an amazing video chronicling his experience. If you want to follow along with him, here’s exactly what you’ll need:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups vegetable or canola oil
  • ½ cup sugar

The recipe serves about four people and should tide you over until the Disney parks around the world finally reopen. Be sure to check out the video above to see how we made this sweet snack. Until then, everyone stay safe and cook some amazing foods!

Disneyworld Is Home To One Of The World’s Most Secret Food Challenges

If you’re a foodie and vacationing to Disneyworld, chances are you’re gonna spend a lot of time at Epcot. That makes sense, because the food there is diverse and exceptional.

However, make sure to visit the other parks, too. There’s some delicious foodie treasures hiding within all of Disneyworld, but none is more secretive than the Rio Grande Nacho Challenge hidden inside the Magic Kingdom.

Here’s the details you need to obtain this hefty meal: Head over to Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in the Frontierland section of the park between 3 and 6 pm. Tell one of the cast members you want to order the secret nachos.

From there, it’s a plethora of hoopla, celebration, and gluttonous consumption of nachos that were perfectly captured by both YouTube channel HellthyJunkFood and the Disney Food Blog Guide. You’re served a whopping portion of nachos big enough to feed 6-8 people, so if you’re not feeling like taking the whole thing down by yourself, feel free to bring some friends along.

As long as the entire platter of nachos is finished, you’ll get the reward of a custom Sheriff’s badge and a certificate of completion for completing this challenge, so feel free to bring the squad for a fun time. If you’re feeling game, though, definitely try to take this whole thing down on your own, and let us know if you do.

Hopefully Not a Trap: Rumors of a Mos Eisley Cantina and Star Wars Land at Walt Disney World

Growing up, Chalmun’s Cantina represented everything I was meant to avoid in the world: Alcohol, seedy characters, bad lighting. So while my inner goody-two-shoes shouldn’t get excited over rumors of Disney’s possibly recreating Star Wars’ infamous divebar, my outer dark side is screaming “oh f*ck yeah.”

Oh right, this is Disney. Sorry, I meant “eff-yeah.”

Eater reports that “’inside sources’ at Disney have confirmed plans to build Star Wars Land” at the company’s Florida resort, similar to last year’s rumors of a Star Wars Land at Disneyland Paris. Of course, both locations wouldn’t see the light of day for at least a few years, but that hasn’t stopped fans from waiting and wishing, particularly for a brand-new themed restaurant, hot on the heels of the “Be Our Guest” restaurant at Walt Disney World.

Diorama photos from blog Disneyandmore help illustrate what a physical Mos Eisley Cantina could look like if rumors are true, though according to Eater, a Disney rep recently told a local news outlet that the company has “nothing to announce.”

Regardless of if and when a real-life Mos Eisley Cantina is in the works, however, one thing’s for certain: I will be so sad if it doesn’t offer a shooter called the “Han Shot First.”
