Hello everyone and welcome to my first blog post here! Today I am going to be talking about the Food and Wine Festival that will be making its triumphant return to Disney California Adventure (DCA). This year’s festival will run for an extended eight weeks from March 1st to April 23rd. The very popular Sip and Savor pass will be returning to this year’s festival and is a great option if you want to end up saving money in the long run.
The festival will have a plethora of events as well as the usual food kiosks lined up and down the parade route. There will be some events that will require reservations and will also require you to dip into tour wallet as these events are pricey. You will get to hang out with celebrity chef Guy Fieri for one of the events although this particular event is sold out. One other exclusive event has guests dining with Disney Chefs for the whopping price of $225. Other events include Wine Seminars and Mixers, Carthay Circle Winemaker Receptions, Sweet Sundays which include breakfasts with the chefs, and lastly cooking demonstrations with chefs.
There is of course plenty of new commemorative merchandise including Mickey and Minnie ears, shirts, pins, and even signed art. I for one am very excited for the Food and Wine festival, part of the reason I love California Adventure is because they have seasonal festivals and events that keep the park evolving and very interesting over the course of the year, so be sure to come on out to the Disneyland Resort next week to check this amazing festival PLUS the return of World of Color.
