Disneyland Copycat Pumpkin Mickey Mouse Beignets (And Disneyland Giveaway!).

Are you looking for the light and flavorful Disneyland Beignet recipe? Look no further! This recipe is similar to what you’ll find at Disneyland – especially if you go during Halloween. The delicious Disneyland copycat pumpkin Mickey Mouse beignets!

Besides the rides (of course), the specialty treats at Disneyland are definitely the highlight of a trip to Disneyland.

I recently shared a post about the best treats at Disneyland, but today, I wanted to share how to make one at home!

Mickey Mouse Beignets.

And not just any Mickey Mouse Beignets – PUMPKIN ones.

I know, it’s totally not pumpkin season anymore…but really, shouldn’t every season be pumpkin season 😉

Anyways. When we went to Disneyland last year, I couldn’t wait to try the beignets. Everyone I knew raved about them, and I KNEW I had to try them!

They were SO delicious, and I’ve been dying to make them at home ever since.

However, as I started searching for recipes, I found people talking about a season version of the beignets that have made an appearance in the past – pumpkin beignets!

And since I had just picked up about 10 cans of pumpkin that were on close out at Target, I knew what I had to do.

Make pumpkin beignets.

And you guys? They are SO good. They were light, airy, and had a slight pumpkin-y taste to them.

My mom tried some, and she said, “These are even BETTER than Disneyland’s.”

Is it bad if I agree?

You can easily make these without pumpkin and make them as traditional Mickey beignets, but I really do love the pumpkin touch. I adapted this recipe from this great one on Get Away Today!

Don’t forget to order your Mickey Mouse cookie cutters – it makes a difference!

  • Those look delicious! We loved the classic Dole whips and also there was a churro with caramel in it that was soooo delicious!
  • There are so many we like. Dole whips, corn dogs, churros and the bread pudding from The Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney.
  • I havent had too many Disneyland treats, but I have had and do love the dole whips! I want to try your beignets!
  • Hello! Sadly I have never been to Disneyland, but I have been to Disney world! I haven't been back in a long time, but, everything in Epcot is amazing! Epcot is one of Disney's "worlds" that shows you different cultures from around the world. They make tons of different food to represent each country! My favourite is Germany❤, because of all the German food!
  • My daughter and I like the churros, but now I want to go back to Disneyland and try their beignets, and get a Dole Whip, (since I have never tried one of those)!
