There’s food and fun for all ages during the Food and Wine Festival at Disney’s California Adventure. In 2019, the event expands to 54 days starting March 1 and running through April 23. Focusing on the flavors and fare inspired by the Golden State, guests of all ages will discover the bounty of California with unforgettable cuisine, beverages, and entertainment.
The Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival features tempting items for the whole family to enjoy, including unique food and beverage offerings at 14 different Festival Marketplaces. While we’re still waiting for the menus to be released, each location’s menu will feature fresh, California-grown ingredients. Guests will also discover locally brewed craft beers, wine and spirits from all across the region.
If you plan to enjoy the event all day, consider purchasing the Sip and Savor Pass to get the best value as you taste your way through the Festival Marketplaces and participating locations.
The Backlot Stage in Hollywood Land comes alive on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, where you can enjoy culinary demonstrations by some of the most celebrated chefs in the industry, who will share their go-to recipes and insider tips for preparing sensational dishes. Family-friendly seminars on these days are presented by Chef Daniella Malfitano, who will demonstrate how preparing and sharing a meal can be a wonderful way to spend time together as a family.
Another fan-favorite experience returning to the festival is the Junior Chef seminar led by Chef Goofy. Children ages 3 to 11. can don a chef hat, follow a recipe and mix a variety of ingredients to create magical treats that end with a tasty surprise. The Junior Chef experience is open for fun several times daily on the Backlot Stage in Hollywood Land.
Live music, entertainment and special activities will also bring a “California vibe” to each day of the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival.
