Unfortunately, due to the quarantine measures happening around the globe, Disneyland locations in different countries had to close their gates to the public. But lucky for us, the brand is letting us cook up some magic in our kitchens.

Disneyland, through its app and blog, has released the recipes for two famous treats⁠—Dole Whip and Churro Bites. The idea behind sharing the recipes is to help give families a fun time as they stay indoors while the world is battling the coronavirus.



A pineapple-flavored frozen dessert, the Dole Whip was first introduced in 1986 at the Enchanted Tiki Room in Adventureland. It’s easy to do and everything you need can be found in your pantry or at a market near you.


  • 1 big scoop of vanilla ice cream
  • 4 oz. of pineapple juice
  • 2 cups of frozen pineapple fruit


All you need to do is put all the ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth. Then pour the mixture in a cup. If you want to achieve the swirl shape of soft-serve ice cream, a piping bag is needed or a clear plastic bag with a cut tip will do. The Dole Whip is known for being a non-dairy treat despite its soft-serve appearance. But it is or can be a dairy-free, gluten-free, and very allergy-friendly food, especially if you’re opting for vegan ice cream and organic ingredients.



Who doesn’t love churros? These cinnamon and sugar-coated pastry wands are sold in carts all over the theme parks. Here’s how you can make bite-sized delights.

“These past few weeks, we’ve seen many of you sharing Disney recipes and creating your very own magical moments right at home,” says Alex Dunlap, Disneyland food and beverage communications coordinator. “While our parks are temporarily closed, you can still enjoy a delicious Disney churro–because you can make them yourself at home!”


  • 1 cup of water
  • 8 tbsps. butter
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¾ tsp. of ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups vegetable or canola oil
  • ½ cup of sugar


  1. Combine water, butter, salt, and ¼ tsp. cinnamon in 1 ½-quart saucepan over medium heat. Bring pot to rolling boil.
  2. Reduce heat to low.
  3. Add flour and stir vigorously until mix forms a ball. Remove from heat and let rest for five to seven minutes.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, and stir until combined. Set aside.
  5. Heat oil in a medium skillet or one-quart saucepan over medium-high heat or until temperature reaches 350°F.
  6. Spoon dough into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe one-inch strip of dough over the saucepan, cut with a knife, and drop into the hot oil. Repeat until churro bites fill saucepan with room to fry.
  7. Fry churro bites until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon or mesh spider strainer.
  8. Drain churro bites on paper towels.
  9. Mix sugar and ½ tsp. cinnamon in a medium bowl. Toss in churro bites until coated. Place on serving plate and serve with favorite dipping sauce.
