Once in a while we find a place that’s “near” Disneyland and worth a mention. Orange County’s Donut Bar is one of those places. Why you ask?
Because donuts. Disney donuts.
Free. Disney. Donuts.
Orange County’s Donut Bar is located in Fountain Valley. Right off the 405 freeway between Euclid and Newhope, it’s only about a 15-20 minute drive to or from Disneyland.
This donut hot spot has been open since March, and they continue to sell out of their specialty donuts every single day.
They have some very unique and amazing flavors, but they do something especially unique and amazing on the weekends! Free donuts for kids. And guess what? More often than not, they’re Disney themed. Really a fun treat.
Not a donut fan? Or looking to satisfy a craving for a Disneyland Monte Cristo? Donut Bar can help with that, too. They have their own Monte Cristo that is sometimes on the ever-changing menu. I haven’t tried it yet, but one of these days I hope to make it happen!
Thirsty? They’ve got Stumptown Cold Brew Coffee, Chocolate Milk and Strawberry Milk on tap. Perfect beverages to go with those perfect donuts.
I’ve been to the Donut Bar a few times. Although the Disney donuts are adorable, my favorite flavors are Blueberry Meyer Lemon and Samoa. Yep, just like the cookie!
My recommendation? Pick a weekend, grab a kid, and head to Orange County’s Donut Bar for a fun treat. The next day’s menu is always posted on Instagram, so if you’re looking for a particular flavor, be sure to check the menu first.
In order to prevent disappointment, get there early. Donuts sell out between 1:00-2:00pm daily during the week, and by 12:00-1:00pm on the weekends. Once they’re out, the doors are locked. I’d hate for you to drive up and see this:
If you’re really worried about missing out and you want to be sure you get what you want, you can place an order online the day before and reserve a dozen for yourself here.
Have you been to the Donut Bar yet? Do you have a favorite flavor? Do you have a Disney donut you’d like to see made? I vote for Little Mermaid donuts!
