When YouTube celeb Rosanna Pansino showed off her favorite treats from Disneyland during a recent video, several fans chimed in that she should recreate her own version for her show. Pansino agreed and picked her favorite Disneyland treat to recreate: churros.
All you need to get started are: 10 cups of oil (for frying), one cup of water, four cups of sugar (for rolling the churro), one cup of flour, half a teaspoon of baking powder, one-fourth teaspoon of salt, one egg, two tablespoons of coconut oil, two tablespoons of sugar, and three tablespoons of ground cinnamon.
Disney and Pixar gave the world Coco in 2017. The wonderful tribute to Mexican culture (seemingly crafted to make people of all ages cry), has ushered in a new era of Latinx and Mexican culture into Disney. Since the movie’s success, you can now cop tons of Latinx-inspired foods with a Disney twist at Disneyland. Just this month, the amusement park announced a concha ice cream sandwich — an invention so deadly delicious it’s only available in the afterlife (and at Disneyland too, lol).
The film that brought Día de Los Muertos to life through beautiful, vibrant storytelling and animation featured a Mexican cast and composer. Coco was the first film with a nine-figure budget to feature an all Latinx principal cast and won two Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song, “Remember Me.”
She’s gorgeous, she’s stunning, she’s Selena Quintanilla! OK, maybe not. But this Mexican ice cream sandwich is a sight for sore eyes. Made with a pink and blue concha, aka Mexican sweet bread, and stuffed with dulce de leche ice cream — you might die of a sugar coma. The sandwich is also filled with cajeta, a goat milk-based caramel sauce, and churro streusel. Then to commemorate Día de los Muertos, a white chocolate sugar skull is nestled in a dollop of whipped cream.
“Following the Mexican tradition of using bright colors as a celebration of life, the shell-like concha breads are also covered in a crunchy rainbow sugar crust, which makes them look both delicious and totally Insta-worthy,” according to Pop Sugar’s Chanel Vargas.
The Conchas are available starting this month and cost $8 at Disneys’s flagship Mexican restaurant, Frontierland’s Rancho del Zocalo.
Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Elotes
New elotes at the Cozy Cone Motel are another tribute to Mexican culture. The elotes comes in three different flavor queso cojito, Cheetos, and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. These Elotes are limited edition and seasonal (this summer) so get them while you still can.
Orange Sugar Skull Pot de Creme
This “Orange Sugar Skull Pot de Creme” is made with thick layers of chocolate pudding, crumbled chocolate cake, and topped with a white chocolate orange sugar skull and colorful candies.
The Maleficent Churro
According to Disneyland stans, the Maleficient Churro is a hot commodity because it is only available during Halloween. This month it has made its delicious return. Let’s be honest, the weird-looking churro is made with chocolate cookie crumbles, green sugar, and has a marshmallow dipping sauce. I don’t know what Maleficent has to do with Churros but I don’t care.
Frozen Abuelita Horchata
Look, I am not saying I love capitalism, and certainly hope there are Latinx people profiting from these treats as well — but ¡diablo! — I want this right now. The Frozen Abuelita is layered with frozen hot chocolate and frozen horchata, then topped with spiced whipped cream.
Disney Food Blog referred to the Coco Cake as the “best cake ever.” With layers of vanilla-flavored pink and orange cake, what sets the Coco Cake apart from others is its cream cheese frosting on the outside, and two layers of cinnamon churro mouse on the inside. Disney took the glycemic index and blasted it off space mountain. The base of the cake is also decorated with gold-dusted chocolate curls. This is what Coco deserves. Remember me, indeed.
Chile Mango Whip
The chile mango whip is made with chamoy, mango, pineapple, cucumber, jicama, and chile-lime salt.
The Sandianada and Mangonada
“The Sandianada is a watermelon smoothie with chamoy, watermelon chunks, topped with a chili candy. Mangonada is a mango smoothie with chamoy, mango pieces, topped with a chili candy,” wrote one Instagram user.
Secret Menu: Zocalo Burrito
Like every restaurant (apparently) Disneyland has a few secret menu items too. At Rancho del Zocalo you can request the Zocalo Burrito which is filled with every ingredient in the prep line for $12.99.
Cinnamon-sugar Buñuelos Chips
This seasonal holiday treat or as Disney calls it “dessert nachos” is something to look forward to this winter season. There is nothing more comforting (I’m guessing, I haven’t tried this yet) than cinnamon-sugar buñuelos chips with chocolate and caramel sauces, sprinkles, and a whipped cream topping.
The most magical place in the world is proving that when it comes to your petty drama, Disneyland isn’t having it.
It was just revealed that the three adults who were involved in a dramatic family physical dispute at Disneyland earlier this month could face years in prison.
In case you missed it, the three adults in question were involved in a brutal fight captured on video a few weeks ago at Disneyland. Footage of the event showed a man in a red shirt throwing punches at several different women and men. Now the man in red, identified as Avery Desmond-Edwinn Robinson, has been charged with five felonies and nine misdemeanors according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
In short, Disney is ready to deliver a one-two punch to violence that threatens peace at its park.
According to the police, Avery allegedly attacked his sister, brother-in-law, and girlfriend at the park.
In doing so, police say, he endangered his child and three other children who were at Disneyland with the family. The Orange County District Attorney’s Office says that upon leaving the park, he also allegedly threatened to kill members of his family and attempted to assault a Disneyland employee with his car.
The charges do not stop with Avery however.
Avery’s sister, Andrea Nicole Robinson, 40, was charged with five misdemeanors.
Those charges include four misdemeanor charges of battery which is related to her attack on Avery and his girlfriend. Meanwhile, Andrea’s husband Daman Petrie, 44, is faced with one misdemeanor count of battery. The Orange County District Attorney’s Office says that he is being accused of assaulting Avery’s girlfriend by punching her in the face.
If convicted, Avery faces a maximum of seven years and fourth months in state prison. Andrea could get up to two-and-a-half years. while her husband Petrie could face a maximum of six months in jail.
According to KTLA, Avery pled not guilty to all the charges against him. Whether or not his sister and her husband have done the same has yet to be revealed.
If you’ve seen the video, you’ve probably only had the emotional bandwidth to ask this question.
Someone insulted someone’s mother, another mother was thrown to the ground, and it seems like everyone is just going at each other, regardless of gender or relation. It was a sad, and confusing, scene to witness.
The narrative of the story is that they are related, hence the fact that they stayed together despite the fighting.
It doesn’t seem like it’s two separate families defending their own. They seem to be related to each other, which makes the fight exceptionally sad.
If you’re still confused, fear not, the Internet has provided a flow chart.

None of this is confirmed by the family or authorities. We’re all in this mess together. From here on out, the term “we” will be used to describe the collective Internet “we.” We think White Shirt girl, Red Shirt and Black Shirt Girl are all siblings. Their mom is the Mama in the wheelchair.

Red Shirt Guy clearly has the biggest temper of them all, and resorted to physically attacking (what we think is) his sister. Her boyfriend (White Shirt Guy) stepped in to defend her. Then they start dancing around like they’re in a boxing ring. Black Shirt girl tries to intervene to get them to stop fighting. Then White Shirt guy just punches Tan Shirt Girl (Red Shirt’s girlfriend) straight in the nose. Now it’s really getting heated between Red Shirt Guy and White Shirt Guy.
While trying to intervene, Mama gets knocked down in the fight.

Now Red Shirt Guy is yelling, “I’m ready to go to jail tonight. I’m ready to go to jail.” Then Red Shirt Guy sees White Shirt Guy and starts yelling “fired on my motherf***ing b****, put your hands around my b****!” White Shirt Guy starts retreating, but Red Shirt Guy pulls White Shirt Guy’s girlfriend (also wearing a white shirt) by her hair.
Things start to calm down until Black Shirt Girl tells Red Shirt Guy that his girlfriend (Tan Shirt Girl) hit his Mama.

He turns to his girlfriend saying, “You hit my mama?” Tan shirt tries to explain that it was an accident (it was), but he punches her straight in the face. Then he starts violently pounding on her on the ground while a group of people tries to lift him off her. He pulls her hair along with him. Red Shirt Guy is finally restrained in a chokehold, and then the security finally shows up.
This whole time, the only Disney employee intervening is an older custodian.

Our hearts dropped for fear this older man would be violently attacked but he thankfully wasn’t. There are memes on memes of other Disney employees in costume just standing around.
Other folks are getting philosophical about the many bystanders who did nothing.

Magic Mountain is side-eyeing this whole brawl so hard right now.
Meanwhile, Universal fans are taking the moment to show appreciation for their theme park of choice.

For all the shade amusement park goers throw at each other, we still don’t understand how this mega-fight happened in Toontown.
This one media outlet’s narration has truly tickled The Internet.

This reporter describes the fight with vivid detail. Rewatching the fight with narration that sounds like “but then, he slapped the daylights out of her,” is truly rewarding if you’re into that kind of thing.
The family maintains it never happened.

The family was all released once they all told park authorities that the fight never happened. Once the video footage came out, however, their questionable loyalty didn’t matter. Orange County prosecutors are currently reviewing the video to determine whether criminal charges will be filed. If they decide to file felony charges, the county district attorney’s office will also assess misdemeanor counts. If they don’t find any grounds for felony charges, the Anaheim city attorney would take over to pursue misdemeanor charges.
