Disney’s Croissant Doughnut

Sharing is caring!

Sometimes the best snacks are made when two equally delicious treats are put together. Take croissants and doughnuts. Both are quite tasty, but put them together and you get an amazing food experience, the Croissant Doughnut or Cronut.

 

Every time we visit Walt Disney World, we aim to try one new food. The Croissant Doughnut has been on our list ever since we heard about it coming to Epcot. Thankfully, during our last trip we were able to check this delicious pastry off our list.
What is a Croissant Doughnut? Basically, it’s a laminated dough (similar to that of a croissant) that has been fried in oil like a doughnut. Once it’s fried, it is rolled in cinnamon sugar, filled with cream and topped with glaze. You can read more about the original Cronut here.

 

The Disney version is a warm, cinnamon sugar topped treat. You can see and taste all the buttery layers.  It has all the light airiness of a croissant without the flakiness of the outside. The outside is crisp and sweet. Although it is fried in oil, the Croissant Doughnut is not greasy. It’s also not heavy and won’t make you feel stuffed like a doughnut can. The Croissant Doughnut is truly the best of both worlds.

 

The Croissant Doughnut is only sold at the Refreshment Port at Epcot for $4.49. (one snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan) Pair it with a cup of coffee and you have a breakfast or snack perfect for strolling around World Showcase?
Have you tried the Croissant Doughnut? Is it on your to-eat list?
