The 2017 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival is here and it’s bigger and better than ever. This year’s festivities include even more outdoor kitchens locations and special items, new merchandise, and much more being offered from now until April 16th.
Let’s take a photo tour of this year’s event:
Festival Welcome Center
At the Welcome Center, guests can get all the information they need about the festival, including what presentation are being offered, where special dishes are being served, and more. Annual Passholders can also purchase a Sip and Savor pass which includes coupons for eight non-alcoholic food or beverage items.
Festival Beer Garden
Over in the Paradise Gardens area of the park is the Festival Beer Garden. As the name implies, this is the best place to sample local craft brews as well as drink in some live entertainment. Additionally, the Paradise Garden Grill is offering a special menu that goes great with beer (or just a soft drink).
If you’re traveling with little ones, you’ll definitely want to stop by the Jr. Chef area located in Paradise Park. Guests ages 3 to 11 can participate in this free activity at select times during the day that allows them to mix a variety of ingredients together to create make-believe treats under the guidance of Chef Goofy. Magically, they creations will then transform into wrapped and ready-to-eat treats.
For Annual Passholders and day guests alike, there are a number of merchandise items to commemorate your visit. From wine glasses to apparel and pins, the adorable Chef Mickey logo on these items make them must-buys.
Finally, what’s a Food & Wine Festival without food (and wine)? As mentioned, the park added extra stands throughout the park for this year’s event. Here’s a look at what’s on the menu:
As mentioned, this year’s Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival will run until April 16th, so be sure be to make this a part of your next Disneyland Resort visit!
