wait, there's gluten free churros at Disney? - pic of gluten free churros with dipping sauce

My husband and I love going to Disney because it makes us feel somewhat normal. Jeremy started a gluten free diet in 2015 and I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2020. So….we know the trials of living a gluten free lifestyle first hand.

At On Walt Disney World property, we can find gluten free French fries, chicken strips, and all the things that just aren’t available to us normally.

It truly is the happiest place on Earth for those of us with Celiac Disease or a gluten allergy.

Alright….let’s dive into where you can find gluten free churros as well as all the details on how to snag these delicious treats.

What is a Churro?

A churro is a long stick of fried dough.  The batter is piped out of a pastry bag, cooked in hot oil like a donut and then coated in cinnamon sugar.  

It’s a sweet treat that is crispy on the outside and fluffy like a donut on the inside.  

It is often served with a dipping sauce, although I’d say the churro itself is so good that it can stand alone without a sauce.

The gluten free churros at Nomad Lounge come with two gluten free dipping sauces.

We’ve seen these swapped out over time. In the past we’ve had a chili-strawberry sauce. Most recently, we’ve been served a vanilla crema dipping sauce and a chocolate sauce. Every sauce we’ve had was excellent.

Regardless of what they serve alongside these delicious churros, you are in for a treat!

Where can you find Gluten Free Churros at Disney? 

There’s actually two locations that serve gluten free churros currently. The easiest location (and arguably the best tasting gluten free churros) are found at Nomad Lounge at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park.  This is where we usually go to get our churros fix!

You can also find gluten free churros at one of the Disney resorts – Three Bridges Bar and Grill at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. Be sure to ask for gluten free churros here as they serve both types here:  regular churros and the gluten-free version.

Before we dive into the details of these amazing churros, it’s worth mentioning that these 2 locations are the ONLY places you can get gluten-free churros at Walt Disney World.

Not all churros at Disney are gluten-free. Always ask before ordering to ensure that you are ordering gluten free churros and not regular churros.

Gluten Free Churros at Nomad Lounge

At Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom theme park, you can find gluten free churros at Nomad Lounge.  Located next to Tiffins and just outside of Pandora – The World of Avatar, this cool lounge serves up appetizers from around the world. 

There’s 2 ways to get churros at Nomad Lounge.  If you want to eat inside the restaurant, which notoriously serves amazing food, you can get on the waitlist by stopping by to talk to the cast member by the door of Nomad Lounge.

If you just want to grab some gluten free churros to go – which is what we usually do – you can tell the cast member at the door that you would like to get gluten free churros to go from the bar and they will let you right in.  

When you enter the building, go to the low counter at the bar.  The bartender will take your order for gluten free churros there and you can relax in the cool air conditioning while you wait for your churros to come out shortly.

When your gluten free churros arrive, be ready to find a nice shady place outside to enjoy them!  

We’ve found that you can never order too many churros!  Especially with our family of 6!  These make an excellent mid-afternoon snack when you need a little pick-me up after a day of fun in the park.  

I just love how easy it is to find delicious treats with a gluten-free diet on Disney property.  It’s truly a big part of what makes Walt Disney World Resort vacations a big draw for those of us with dietary restrictions.
