California Adventure Food and Wine Festival
Coming in April, Disney California Adventure will present a unique Food & Wine Festival. Each weekend from April 1-May 1, 2016, the California Adventure Food and Wine Festival will offer a taste of the best of California cuisine. This event has not be presented in California since 2010, so this is a welcome addition to the Disneyland Resort.
The price of admission to the California Adventure Food and Wine Festival is included with regular Disney California Adventure park admission. Some experiences and offerings will have an additional fee. Guests must be 21 years of age or over to participate in some events; valid ID required. Subject to restrictions and change or cancellation without notice.
While there may be some similarities to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, the focuses are different. Epcot’s festival focuses on international offerings, but the California Adventure Food and Wine Festival will focus on California inspired options.
A new feature of the event will be Festival Marketplaces. Delicious food and beverages from all over the state of California will be available.
Demonstrations and Seminars
Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival will include culinary demonstrations, celebrity chef appearances and seminars. While some aspects of the festival are available only guests age 21 and over, expect that there will be something for every member of the family to enjoy at the Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival.
