CONFIRMED 9-11-20: Disney contacted us to let us know that these guys are, in fact, $6.50 each, and the issue at the register was an anomaly! Phew! $6.50 is still a little insane for a churro — not gonna lie — but at least you get that dipping sauce…AND bonus orange and black spooky sugar! ;-D
As far as iconic Disney snacks go, we’d say churros are definitely up there!
And much like some of our other Disney World favorites like popcorn buckets and cupcakes, churros have also recently received a Halloween makeover! But the festive sugar coating on the new Black and Orange Churros wasn’t the only spooky thing about this treat!
We’ve been on a mission to try alllll of the seasonal treats in Disney World! So, we stopped by the Castle Hub Refreshment Cart on our most recent visit to Magic Kingdom to get our spooky snackin’ on!
Here, we found the Halloween-themed Black and Orange Churros, which can be served in an Oogie Boogie or Mickey Pumpkin Balloon Bucket if you REALLY want to get in the spirit! If you choose to snag a seasonal bucket, you’ll get TWO Black and Orange Churros and the bucket for $22.
But, if you’re looking to save a little cash (and room for more snacks!) you can snag just an individual Black and Orange Churro for $7.25, according to the cast member at the kiosk. And that’s what has us saying, “what’s this??”
A regular churro around the parks (plus the chocolate dipping sauce) will run you $6.50 and it’s pretty much the same as the seasonal option, just without the black and orange colored sugar. We triple checked with the Cast Member at the cart and they insisted that, yep, THESE churros would come out to $7.25. $0.75 extra per churro for that extra pop of color? Is it flavored, magical, or otherwise special sugar worth $75 cents extra? Nah…just regular ol’ sugar.
Now here’s where it gets tricky. We spotted the SAME orange and black churros at other carts around the park being sold for the regular price of $6.50. Are the ones closer to the castle extra magical? Or is there just weirdness since they’re supposed to come with the bucket there?
We’re guessing this is just first-day jitters for the Halloween churros, and that pricing will eventually be worked out to be uniform across the park (and maybe it already has been). But if you’re wanting just the orange and black churros with no “churro bucket” to tote them around, be sure to ask about the price before you buy…at least for now.

From a review perspective — the Black and Orange Churros were definitely tasty, and they might be a good option if you’re looking to get some cool Instagram pictures in front of the castle. (That said, the Halloween orange against Cindy Castle pink doesn’t look all that great…just sayin’.) But if you’re not worried about the aesthetics, we would opt for a regular churro instead, since all you’re really paying for with the upgrade is the colorful sugar! That way, you can splurge on some of the other awesome Halloween treats like the Not-So-Poison Apple Cupcake or the Hades Nachos!
