Lightsaber churros are available at Disney’s Hollywood Studios again for Star Wars Day 2023. These treats can be found at Churro Carts in The Market on May 4 and 5, or at Grand Avenue and Anaheim Produce through May 31.

Lightsaber Churro – $7.19

This is just your same Disney churro but with blue or red sugar on it to make it look like a Jedi or Sith lightsaber. They come in cardboard boxes that resemble lightsaber hilts.

The churros make for a cute photo shoot but were way too hard and stale instead of crispy. And if you get to the churro cart too early, they may not be ready and you’ll have to wait.

For $7.19, these lightsaber churros are not worth the cute pics.
