A Day in the Life of a Disney Churro

Disney churros are one of the great inventions of all time. We will stand by this statement, forever and always. When we think about Disney churros, which is approximately 100 times a day, we often wonder what it would be like to be a churro. What if we could spend a day in a churro’s sugar-coated shell? What wonders would we see? What lessons would we learn? With these thoughts in mind, we went on a journey to find out. We spent a day with an actual Disneyland churro, and our eyes were opened.

Before we get started, let’s revisit some churro facts:

Now that we’re all educated on Disneyland churros, let’s take a look at a day in the life of one particular churro. We spent some time with this churro and wrote down what we are pretty sure were its actual thoughts:

8:00 a.m.
Oh, hello. I am a churro and life is grand. The sun is rising and the churro machines are readied for yet another beautiful day at Disneyland.

8:05 a.m.
I am full of life. Also, I’m full of fried dough, sugar, and cinnamon. The greatest ingredients on Earth.

8:15 a.m.
“No thank you, I would not like a churro,” said no one ever. I laugh at my own joke. I’m a hilarious churro. The other churros don’t get it.

9:00 a.m.
A few of my churro friends have been purchased. They are so lucky. I await my turn.

9:30 a.m.
Putting out some churro vibes for someone to purchase me.

10:00 a.m.
Some lady looked at me for a long time but decided against purchasing me. Her willpower is admirable. She made a grave mistake.

10:01 a.m.
She came back. I knew she wouldn’t be able to walk away. SHE BOUGHT A MICKEY PRETZEL INSTEAD.

10:02 a.m.
I stare jealously at my arch nemeses, the Mickey pretzel and the Mickey ice cream bar. And the popcorn, too. The popcorn is so full of itself.

11:00 a.m.
It’s getting warm in here. But a churro must stay warm to be fully delicious.

11:30 a.m.
Sad that I haven’t been purchased yet, but feeling confident.

Waiting for the right person to walk by and realize they want a churro. This is a metaphor for life. We’re all just waiting for the right person to walk by. AMIRIGHT? #ChurroWisdom

12:01 p.m.
Thinking about starting an Instagram account called @ChurroWisdom.

12:05 p.m.
The @ChurroWisdom Instagram account would probably be given many awards for its brilliance.

1:00 p.m.
Whoops, took a nap.

1:30 p.m.
Should be after-lunch rush time soon. People are starting to crowd around.

2:00 p.m.
In despair. Still haven’t been purchased. Questioning my life choices.

2:30 p.m.
Maybe I should go back to churro school. Maybe I should start my own churro business. Maybe I really should look into that Instagram account.

2:45 p.m.
Life is just one big waiting game. Until it isn’t. #ChurroWisdom.

2:50 p.m.
I try to make myself look as presentable as possible. I shine. I glitter.

3:00 p.m.
I got purchased! This is what every Disneyland churro dreams of. I am a WINNER.

3:10 p.m.
I take a nice walk around the park with the person that purchased me.

3:15 p.m.
Everyone has their eyes on me. I am the king of churros.

3:20 p.m.
I smirk at the Mickey pretzels that are still in their case. They are so jealous of me right now.

3:30 p.m.
The person who purchased me has me out on display. I wave to all around me proudly.

3:40 p.m.
The person who purchased me drops me. This is my worst nightmare.

3:41 p.m.
The person who purchased me stares at me. I am on the ground. What is to become of me?

3:42 p.m.
The person who purchased me looks around furtively, picks me up off the ground, and takes a bite.
I’m back! Even when dropped on the ground, I am still delicious.

3:43 p.m.
The person who purchased me puts me in her backpack for later. This is insane, as all churros should be eaten within 15 minutes, tops.

3:44 p.m.
Guess I’m riding around in a backpack all day. Hope we go on Thunder Mountain.

5:30 p.m.
We went on Thunder Mountain. IT WAS THE BEST. I bet no other churro has done that.

6:30 p.m.
Splash Mountain wasn’t the best for my sugar coated shell. BUT I LOVED IT.

7:30 p.m.
Every time we walk by another churro cart, I see all of the other churros staring at me jealously. I am a churro LEGEND.

8:30 p.m.
The person who purchased me has a bread bowl and ice cream and I am irritated. And impressed that she just ate an entire bread bowl.

8:45 p.m.
Feeling bad that I have been so jealous of the Mickey pretzels all this time. Now that I’ve seen the world, I realize we aren’t that different. We’re all just Disneyland food, trying to do the best that we can. #ChurroWisdom

9:30 p.m.
The person who purchased me takes me out of her backpack and we watch the fireworks together. This has been the best day of my churro life.

And with that, we conclude our journey into what we are pretty sure were the thoughts of the churro we spent the day with at Disneyland. And remember everyone, be kind to one another, because we’re all just churros, trying to do the best that we can.
