Sorry, Universal. This Disney Spot Has Better Churros

Can we tell you a secret? We may be Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholders and think the world of Mickey Mouse… but shh… we enjoy Universal Orlando Resort too! Yes, we must admit, we are also Universal Passholders and find ourselves at both Orlando theme park giants’ Parks regularly.

Just like Disney fans know Dole Whip and Mickey Ice Cream Bars are Disney Park snack staples, the Churro is at that same level for Universal fans. Universal’s churros are delicious, fresh, and beat out any Disney Park churro we’ve ever had… until now.

Head over with us to Disney Springs, where shopping, dining, and entertainment are in full swing! Admission and parking are FREE at Disney Springs, making it a regular place for locals to drop in to check out the Disney bubble.

Not only has Disney recently added Dole Whip flavors to Disney Springs with its Swirls on the Water, but there are endless sweet treat offerings, including Gideon’s Bakehouse, Everglazed Donuts, and Salt & Straw ice cream. For our family, however… we’re always on the lookout for churros!

Until now, we’ve settled with the fact that Universal just has better churros than Disney. But, at a recent stop at Disney Springs, we decided to try out a quiet churro kiosk in the Marketplace portion of the complex. The game-changer? Sunshine Churros!

The Mexican-inspired pastry comes to life in a whole new way, making this hidden gem our newest must-do with every visit to Disney Springs. The crunchy goodness of a churro comes to life at Sunshine Churros with a fantastic variety of delicious flavors, including cinnamon, apple cinnamon, watermelon, salted caramel, rose gold, and Fruity Pebbles.

Want to indulge in a premium gourmet selection? Check out the strawberry cheesecake or Oreo churro. Dipping sauce? Why, yes, please! Ask for the Nutella or milk chocolate dips to top your churro snacking.

Well done, Sunshine Churros! We weren’t sure it was possible – but this Disney churro has officially topped Universal’s iconic Park churro.

About Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
