Star Wars fans, rejoice — Lightsaber Churros are back at Disney World! In celebration of the 30th anniversary of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the park is featuring a number of limited-time menu offerings. Hollywood Studios opened for the first time back on May 1, 1989.
Dusted in either red or blue sugar — whether you represent the light or dark side — these Lightsaber Churros are available at Anaheim Produce, Market at Pixar Place, Pretzel Palooza and at churro carts throughout Hollywood Studios. Although they taste like the regular churros that you know and love, they look exactly like the lightsabers used by the characters in the Star Wars movies. These fun, themed snacks were first introduced in 2017.
“You can play with it and then have a bite,” pastry chef Sergio Avila told “Good Morning America.” “It’s designed with a sleeve to make it more realistic. It’s playful but traditional.”
Avila predicts that the special churros will be even more popular when the new themed land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, opens at the park in August.
The Lightsaber Churros are not the only treats on offer in celebration of Hollywood Studios’ 30th anniversary. At Rosie’s All-American Cafe and Dockside Diner, you can grab a peanut butter and chocolate Kylo Ren Cupcake.
Also, how cute is this Pixar-inspired Playful Luxo Ball, featuring mango mousse, banana sponge cake, caramel chocolate and rice croquant? You can get it at The Trolley Car Cafe and BaseLine Tap House.
For those over 21, the Galaxy Margarita is a refreshing, adults-only treat found at walk-up bars throughout the park.
For those who are nostalgic for the park’s beginnings, Hollywood Studios will also be serving up some of the most iconic and popular menu items from throughout its history. These legacy offerings include classics like the Famous Cobb Salad and Brown Derby Original Grapefruit Cake at The Hollywood Brown Derby, as well as Aunt Liz’s Golden Fried Chicken, Cousin Megan’s Traditional Meatloaf and Peanut Butter & Jelly Milk Shake at the 50s Prime Time Cafe.
