April-December Churro

Disney’s Haunted Mansion is one of its most iconic attractions, so it’s no surprise it has inspired films, merchandise, and food. Previously, Disney released a limited-time pre-fix menu at Disney’s Cafe Orleans, located in New Orleans Square in Disneyland Park. Just before the film’s release date, Disney is showcasing a new food item inspired by the attraction and film.

The new flavored churro, the April-December churro, features strawberry, sugar, and icing. The vibrant pinks are displayed before a Haunted Mansion portrait, turning from ordinary to ghostly.
