Welcome to Wrapped With Love in California Adventure
Believe it or not, this year is the first time I’ve been able to experience Lunar New Year at Disneyland’s California Adventure. The decorations for the Year of the Rabbit were really cool. Of course, they paid homage to all the Disney rabbits. One in particular got a lot of attention!

There were many food booths offering Asian favorites. My family decided to try one called Wrapped With Love. This spot offered different wontons and dumplings. We ordered two items: Pork and Shrimp Wontons and Bok Choy and Mushroom Dumplings. Each order came with Black Garlic Sauce. Each order cost $8.75.

Each order contained three wontons or dumplings. Since we are a family of three, this meant everyone could try both. We took our food to a nearby seating area. Beverages, both alcoholic and nonalcoholic, are also sold at Wrapped With Love.
I dove into the Pork and Shrimp Wontons first….and I neglected to take a photo of them. (You can see a photo in the menu, pictured above.). The wontons were a nice texture and the minced pork and shrimp was very flavorful. The pork flavor was stronger than the shrimp flavor, and they definitely did not skimp on the filling.

Next, I tried the Bok Choy and Mushroom Dumplings. This is a plant-based item. I happen to love veggies, so I was excited to try these. These were fantastic. Each dumpling was packed with veggies, and I wish I could have eaten all three! The Black Garlic dipping sauce went well with each item and was not overly spicy.

I did find it odd that both these items had the same price. Traditionally, items with meat and/or seafood are priced higher than those with only vegetables. I should point out that I enjoyed these items during the Moonlight Magic event, in which each member of my family received three $10 vouchers for food. If I was paying out of pocket for these snacks, I might have hesitated to try them. For the same amount of money I could have ordered a complete meal at a quick-service restaurant.
Disney lists these items as snacks, and because of the portion size, that’s pretty accurate. Even if I had an entire order to myself, it would not have filled me up as a meal. In fact, I’m not even sure if both these items together would make a filling meal. Keep that in mind.
I really enjoyed the offerings here. They were very tasty and made for a nice snack. Just don’t come to this booth thinking that you’re going to get a full meal. With that in mind, if you’re a fan of wontons and dumplings, this spot will serve you well.
