Dining in Disneyland: The Fried Apple Burrito

RUN, don’t walk, to the Halloween Carnival over at Big Thunder Ranch at Disneyland.

Not for the adorable character meet and greets…

Mickey and Minnie

Not for the amazingly talented pumpkin carvers…

And not for the toe tappin’ tunes of Billy Hill and the “Haunted” Hillbillies… .

Why do you need to run? Because they have Fried Apple Burritos.

Carnival Treats Menu

Reminiscent of the old school McDonald’s fried apple pies (you know, before they healthy’d em up and started baking them), this super yummy Fried Apple Burrito is basically an apple pie chimichanga. 

For $6.00 you will be served a piping hot, crispy, generously portioned tube of fried apple awesomeness.

The inside is loaded with a hot apple pie center; lots of soft apple chunks mixed with a tiny bit of holiday spice.  Trust me when I say you will not regret the purchase of this situation. SO good.

Apple innards!


The Fried Apple Burrito is by far one of my very favorite Halloween Time treats this year. It’s here through November 3rd and is available only at the Halloween Carnival in Big Thunder Ranch. Hours are 10:30am-6:00pm daily.

I sure hope that it will be back for years to come. Or even better? Make it permanent somewhere on property. Pretty please!?!

Have you been over to the Halloween Carnival at Big Thunder Ranch?  Did you splurge on a Fried Apple Burrito? If so, did you love it as much as I did?

    Ah! So sad I missed this when I was there this autumn! I even stood right in front of that cart for a while waiting to conjure a villain. I will be back for the holidays and hoping there is something equally as enticing…well I KNOW there will be, who am I kidding?!

    We just had one at Big Thunder Ranch when we were on vacation Jan. 17, 2014! Maybe they will be there all of the time.
