Churro Ice Cream Sandwich Now at Disney World!

Some time ago now, Churro Ice Cream Sandwiches hit the scene in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney. And the hopeful cry immediately went up for their arrival in Disney World. Well, it only took four years, but….

IT’S HERE!!! Head to Magic Kingdom’s Sleepy Hollow Refreshments for the brand new Vanilla Ice Cream Churro Sandwich!

All the ingredients are in the name: hand-scooped vanilla ice cream is sandwiched between two churros-turned-cookies.

The churros are sprinkled with plenty of cinnamon and sugar surrounding the dough.

But there are some differences between this version at Magic Kingdom, and the ones that hailed from Disneyland’s Downtown Disney.

First, the churros at Sleepy Hollow are NOT warmed prior to serving. And, considering Florida’s heat, this is probably a good call to counteract the potential for fast melting.

On the downside, though… our churros were a bit stale (an issue I’ve been coming across at Sleepy Hollow with several other menu items for a few months, honestly).

The outer part was a little difficult to bite, and even to cut into. But we’re on the right track… cinnamon-y fried churros served up with a cool, creamy scoop of ice cream!

Now, something to note: the Churro Sandwich has replaced the Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich at Sleepy Hollow.

So, just know that you can still find those ice cream cookie sandwiches at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor if that’s what you crave in the Kingdom. Plus, for just a little extra change you can top your Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich with Peanut Butter sauce (or caramel. Or hot fudge). Sooo…. that’s a definite pro of getting them at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.

But be warned. With this new arrival of the Vanilla Ice Cream Churro Sandwich joining the ranks at Sleepy Hollow, the conundrum is only heightened: with a spot that also boasts the Nutella Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich, a new-to-the-menu jumbo Mickey Waffle, Funnel Cakes, and now THIS… how on Earth do you choose?!

    Hi AJ and team – THIS makes me so happy. Cannot wait. Also, how do I share on my Disney FB site? Don’t see a sharing link, just a like link. Thanks ☺

    I might try it anyway because churros+ice cream, but it sounds like I should plan to be disappointed. :(

    This will be a must try when I get there in August. I LURVE me churros and with the ice cream, I may just have found awesomeness. Will let you know! My fam may stick with the Plaza for the cookie sandwich. we may have to get both and compare! I plan to share my food adventures with my friends and since I just bought the DFB books for light reading on the drive from Boston, you may be benefiting from the reviews. If you call it a benefit LOL

    Be prepared to be disappointed; went yesterday at 6pm and they said they were sold out for the day!! A sunny Saturday, very sad

    I had this wonderful thing the other day. It was delicious. Too bad the Florida heat melted it so quickly. Oh well, we drank what was left. Make sure you have napkins, baby wipes would be better though.
