New Gourmet Donuts at Disneyland Resort: No Limit to the Creativity

From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Joan Peabody

If you’re lucky enough to have tasted the new gourmet donuts on Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland park, then you may have noticed the confectionary creativity is endless. You might even describe them as pure deliciousness! (Is that even a word???) Nonetheless, guests are lovin’ the donuts so much, we thought we’d ask Executive Chef Jason Martin about his inspiration for large variety of flavors.

How many flavors of donuts are sold at the cart on Main Street, U.S.A., each day?
There are, usually, three flavors of donuts to choose from daily. There’s just no limit to what we will put on a donut! So far, we’ve introduced 40 different flavor combos.

How do you get inspiration for new flavors? What’s the creation process like?
We’re always looking for what’s hot, what’s new, what’s trending. The ideas can be related to people, parades, events and seasons. I ask members of my team for ideas and inspiration — and invite anyone who has an idea to make suggestions.

I’d say, the Matterhorn Macaroon donut or the Chocolate Covered Potato Chip donut.

Now that your mouth may be watering, I should mention — you can find the gourmet donuts at The Coffee Cart on Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland park.
