In an exciting development for foodies and lovers of the Disneyland Resort, the month-long Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival will celebrate the lifestyle and springtime flavors of California with a blend of culinary experiences. The Festival begins Friday, April 1, and most events will take place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through May 1 in Disney California Adventure Park.
Each weekend features numerous experiences including culinary demonstrations and lifestyle seminars, plus some ticketed events featuring celebrity chefs, as well as wine, beer and spirits seminars. At Festival Marketplaces, set up around the park, guests may sip and savor delicious flavors from throughout the state of California.
Some events at the festival are included with admission to Disney California Adventure. Signature events, requiring a reservation and a separate ticket, include Celebrity Kitchen with some of the biggest names in the culinary world, and beverage seminars featuring popular adult beverages in a relaxing setting at the Golden Vine Winery.

Food is always part of the fun at Disney California Adventure. The park offers guests a range of dining options, from fast-casual fare to haute cuisine, with innovative dishes from award-winning chefs. Guests will find Mediterranean cuisine at Paradise Garden Grill, handmade treats at Candy Palace, fine dining and craft cocktails at Carthay Circle Restaurant and Lounge, plus vegetarian and gluten-free options at many locations.
