We spied them at the Churro Cart in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland, and they’ll be there throughout the month of May.

But we also spotted them in Disney’s Hollywood Studios on May the Fourth. While we hear they’ll be back, they aren’t there as of press time, unfortunately. But..a new hope! For churros! (What?!)

So those are the deets! Let’s get to the pics.

These are your standard issue Disney churros. What sets them apart are the super cool sanding sugars in red and blue. And there’s a little something extra in there. You’ll see in a sec.

The warm churros are tossed into the sugar of your choice — red if you’re feeling Sith-like, or blue if you lean toward the Jedi side of things. Note that these aren’t flavored at all — they’re just sugar-sweet.

To balance things out, we decided to try one of each.

In short order, we were ready to battle, Jedi against the Dark Side. Which will you pick?

We can’t wait to see what else Disney has up its sleeve to mark the 40th anniversary. But seriously…they’re off to a pretty awesome start, in our opinion. :-D

I can’t wait to hear what you guys think! Will you be enjoying Lightsaber Churros the next time you’re at Disneyland? (And hopefully soon at Disney World?) Leave a comment and let us know which color you’ll pick!
