Though it may be considered early spring, it’s always the Season of the Vine during the Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival where D23, The official Disney fan club, will be hosting another Sip & Stroll event for Gold members.

What’s Happening:

  • D23 Sip and Stroll returns to the west coast with more opportunities for members than ever before, with two dates to choose from and more time to learn from the Disneyland Resort culinary team!
  • D23 Members will enjoy a private reception at the Sonoma Terrace, where they will hear from Chef Jimmy Weita, Chef de Cuisine of the Festival, and get to taste a few of his favorite items while sipping a celebratory beverage.
  • Members will learn the team’s culinary inspiration and how they cook food that thrills guests throughout the park, and the discussion will end with a Q&A.
  • Guests will then have the opportunity to stroll along the festival corridor with their fellow members, equipped with a Food & Wine Festival $20 Gift Card to taste the culinary delights of California’s bounty.
  • In the afternoon, members will experience an all-new D23-exclusive— a hands-on cookie decorating lesson from the Disneyland Resort pastry team, featuring Pastry Chef Christina Orejel, where she will lead you through several techniques.  Back at Sonoma Terrace, members will then be presented with an exclusive 2020 D23 Sip and Stroll apron as a special gift, turning them into honorary apprentice chefs ready to stretch their culinary creativity.
