And these Mickey-shaped beignets are proof that magic is indeed alive and well at Disney. Beignets are deep-fried French pastry, so you know they taste delicious, but Disneyland has taken this pastry to the next level. They are covered with rich chocolate powder, warm chocolate sauce and of course, a side of chilled whipped cream (with holiday green-and-red sprinkles atop the pillowy cream).
If you are lucky enough to be headed to Disneyland, you don’t want to miss out on this decadent treat. You can find this new holiday offering in New Orleans Square at Café Orléans. A three-pack is $4.99 and a six-pack is $8.49.

But don’t limit yourself to just one order! Don’t forget to also try the candy cane beignets, also at theMint Julep Bar at Café Orléans. Sprinkled with candy-cane powdered sugar and featuring holiday-appropriate peppermint flavor, these are the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit. A three-pack is $5.49 and a six-pack is $8.99.
Still in the mood for festive Disney treats? Try the delicious holiday churros, like the caramel and coconut churro (found at the Town Square Churro Cart or at the Churros Near Sleeping Beauty Castle) or the Santa’s cookies and milk churro (found at Churros Near Casey Jr.). Christmas cookies may have some stiff competition, indeed: A plate of milk and churros may be just the thing you need to get on Santa’s nice list.
Or try some of the yummy festive finds at Rancho del Zocalo, located in Frontierland. Holiday treats like Frozen Abuelita hot chocolate, Champurrado with churro bites and pan dulce ice cream sandwich will soon become your new Christmas favorites.
