Review: Gold-Dusted Treats and MORE Pirates 50th Anniversary Eats in Disneyland!

ARRRRR ye lookin’ for some treasure, matey? Because if ye be, there’s plenty to be plundered (or, you know, politely purchased by the usual means ;-D ) at the Pirates of the Caribbean 50th Anniversary Celebration in Disneyland’s New Orleans Square!

Golden Churros

This Saturday, March 18th, marks the official anniversary, so these special treats are only available for a VERY limited time! Let’s start – with the help of our favorite west coast Pirate, Heather Sievers — with the most glittering jewel of the bunch… the Golden Churro!

Set sail — ahoy! — for the nearest Churro Cart to get one of these beauties.

Because the Golden Churros are not only completely Instagram-ready…

… they also taste as good as they look, thanks to the hearty dusting of GOLD!

The Gold Dust is actually a lemon sugar that works really well with the always crispy-on-the-outside and soft-on-the-inside classic Churro.

I wish we could say the same for the Lost Treasure Beignets.

Found at the Mint Julep Bar and Café Orleans, the same lemon-sugar that glitters the Churros is dusted onto the Beignets, but it just doesn’t translate as well.

Heather thinks a dipping sauce — like raspberry preserves — could’ve spruced these up, but, alas, there is none.

Oh, and with those Biegnets, you’re also looking at a picture of the Jolly Roger Punch, located at Counter Service locations in New Orleans Square. Heather likened this spiced tropical fruit blend (with pineapple, orange, and mango) to P.O.G. Juice, which is found in several Table Service Restaurants (albeit under various names) in Disney World.

So, yes, with fruit flavors that override the spice, the Jolly Roger Punch is very POG-ish. Ergo… YUMMY! So, “Drink Up, Me Hearties, Yo Ho!!”

Don’t forget that you can start your morning throughout the celebration with a delicious Caribbean Breakfast Burrito.

It’s packed with Andouille sausage, rice, black beans, cheddar cheese and sweet potatoes, giving it a New-Orleans-meets-the-Southwest vibe. Oh, there are some NOT “really bad eggs” in there, too. (A little Yo-Ho-Humor for all of you singing the attraction’s theme song in your head while reading this post!)

You’ll find it at Royal Street Veranda and the Mint Julep Bar, IF you’re one of the early Pirates that catches the worm… or something like that ;) .

It is a BLAST to celebrate FIFTY YEARS of pillaging, plundering, and not giving a hoot with these specialty snacks (along with a few others… read all about them here) in Disneyland! If it’s a Pirate’s Life for YOU, too, we hope you get the chance to join in the Pirate Party this weekend!

Is Pirates of the Caribbean YOUR favorite attraction? Please let us know with a comment!
