Hello foodies – it’s your lucky day! If you love cuisine inspired by the Golden State, then you are going to want to check out this Foodie Guide because I’ve got your first look at the full menu for the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival. This returning flavor favorite will start serving up can’t-miss eats and sips on March 3 and will run through April 25, 2023, at Disney California Adventure park.  

From mouthwatering treats to must-try sips, there is plenty to taste across 12 festival marketplaces. With the new soon-to-be favorites BBQ Beef Brisket Slider from Cluck-A-Doodle-Moo and the Blueberry Pancake Cold Brew from Berry Patch, or the returning Mickey Mouse-shaped Macaron made with SNICKERS from Nuts About Cheese, you will be more than satisfied. If you’re looking for plant-based options, this year Paradise Garden Grill will be serving up a plant-based menu for you to treat yourself too!  

The festival marketplaces aren’t the only places you can indulge in some delicious flavors. All throughout Disney California Adventure park and even at Downtown Disney District, you can taste your way through California staples. If you want an enhanced feasting experience, consider the Sip and Savor Pass, a special, commemorative credential that lets you try up to eight different food and non-alcoholic beverage items at participating locations anytime throughout the festival. Whether you use all eight tabs yourself – or split with a friend – you can purchase yours at various locations throughout Disney California Adventure park.   

For those wanting an even more special experience, there are unique bookable experiences available at the both Disneyland Hotel and Disney Grand Californian Hotel & Spa as well! Over at the Disneyland Hotel, you’ll find the Trader Sam’s Tiki Mixology Seminar where you’ll learn to make one of their legendary libations – the HippopotoMai-Tai – then enjoy some sweet-and-spicy snacks and get a souvenir tiki mug to take home with you. Meanwhile, the Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa Food and Wine Experience is a can’t-miss. Here, you’ll be able to meet the chefs, sommeliers, and art historians from the resort as you sip on expertly paired wines and plates from the Hearthstone Lounge. Be sure to check availability for these exciting experiences offered this year.  

As you can see, there’s limitless foodie fun to have at Disneyland Resort for the festival this year and all across our Disney Parks!  

Now, let’s get to the good part, shall we? I present to you the Foodie Guide to the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival. Bon appétit!
