Does Disneyland have Wookie cookies?

Aside from dole whips, Disneyland certainly offers its rendition of a Wookie Cookie, like Disney World, with an added twist. Disneyland Wookie Cookies are distinguished by their milk chocolate bandolier, a well-known Chewbacca emblem.

Unlike its vanilla cream-filled counterpart, the Disneyland Wookie Cookie embraces the “dark side” with a chocolate cookie base and a chocolate hazelnut filling topped with chocolate flakes for an extra touch of decadence. How can anything with added chocolate sprinkles be bad?

You can find Disneyland’s Wookiee Cookie and other Star Wars snacks at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel. During your visit, be sure to check out the pretzel lightsabers available in the GCH holiday cart. These pretzel sticks, coated in vibrant white chocolate, resemble the iconic blue sabers, red sabers, and green sabers from the Star Wars universe.

Does the Wookie Cookie have nuts?

The Wookie Cookie ingredients can vary depending on the location and restaurant. It’s crucial to note that some Wookie Cookie versions may include nuts, and others may not.

For those with allergies, it’s highly recommended to communicate directly with the cast member at the specific location where you’re considering purchasing the Wookie Cookie. They can provide accurate info about the ingredients, potential allergens, and any changes to the recipe. Disney cast members are typically well-trained in handling allergens and can help ensure a safe dining experience.

Moreover, it’s imperative to note that the Disneyland version of the Wookie Cookie includes chocolate hazelnut filling. It might not be safe for individuals having tree nut allergies.
