Why You’ll Love Churro Mickey Waffles

Mickey waffles are a classic breakfast item found at Disney Parks and Disney Cruise Line. But, Disney has taken this delicious breakfast treat to the next level! Churro Mickey Waffles uses churro dough in place of classic Mickey waffles and coats them in butter and cinnamon/sugar.

I first had these waffles on our San Diego Disney Wonder Cruise at Cabanas breakfast buffet, and fell in love! My kids loved them even more! You can also sometimes find them at both the Disneyland Resort, at Goofy’s Kitchen, and the Walt Disney World Resort, at Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom park.

They are like Disneyland churros, but in breakfast form! Find out where to get more breakfast options or a character breakfast at Disneyland here.

Churro Mickey Waffles Ingredients

*Ingredient amounts are located in the recipe card at the end of this post.

  • Water: Boiling hot water will moisten the churro waffle dough.
  • Eggs: These will be used to bind the waffle batter together. Use large eggs, preferably at room temperature.
  • Flour: All-purpose flour is what we’ll be using for this recipe. If you’re looking to make gluten-free Churro Mickey Waffles, substitute the all-purpose flour with a 1:1 ratio of gluten-free baking mix.
  • Cinnamon: A classic ingredient in churros. A little will be added to the dough/batter and more will be used for the cinnamon/sugar coating.
  • Sugar: This adds the right amount of sweetness to your waffles. Sugar will also be mixed with cinnamon to coat the churro waffles.
  • Vanilla Extract: For added flavor, use pure vanilla extract. You can also substitute it with almond or other flavored extracts.
  • Butter: For the churro coating, you’ll be using melted butter. Butter is also used in the churro dough to add flavor.
