The popular Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival returns to the Disneyland Resort March 1 to April 23, 2019, with flavors and fare inspired by the Golden State.

With experiences happening daily during the limited-time event,* guests will always find something tasty to try and fun to do as they explore the uniquely Disney festival.
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. Each location’s menu is inspired by fresh, California-grown ingredients. Guests will also discover locally brewed craft beers, wine and spirits from all across the region. Guests may choose to purchase the Sip and Savor Pass** to get the best value as they taste their way through the Festival Marketplaces and participating locations.
On the Backlot Stage in Hollywood Land on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, guests will discover 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. Guests of all ages will get inspired or even discover a new interest during these presentations.
