The Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival is back at the Disneyland Resort from March 1 – April 23, expanding to 54 days of foodie fun and fare inspired by the Golden State.
Guests can try a variety of offerings at 14 different Festival Marketplaces during the event. Each location’s menu is inspired by fresh, California-grown ingredients. Guests can also sip on locally-brewed craft beers, wine, and spirits from all across the region.
Those who want to try it all should consider the Sip and Savor Pass, which offers the best value as guests taste their way through the Festival Marketplaces and other participating locations.
On the Backlot Stage in Hollywood Land on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, guests can watch culinary demonstrations by some of the most famous chefs in the industry as they share recipes and tips on creating delectable dishes.
Family-friendly seminars on these days will be presented by Chef Daniella Malfitano, who will demonstrate how preparing and sharing a meal can be a great way to spend time together as a family.
Another daily offering returning this year is the Junior Chef experience, featuring hands-on fun led by Chef Goofy for kids ages 3-11. During the experience, aspiring chefs will follow a recipe to create magical treats that end with a tasty surprise. The Junior Chef experience is open several times daily on the Backlot Stage in Hollywood Land.
Live music, entertainment, and other activities will also be available for guests to enjoy during the event.
