Foodie Guide to the 2022 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival From March 4 to April 26

The Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival is just around the corner. The festival is back and filled with delicious eats and mesmerizing sips highlighting the lovely flavors of California. From March 4 through April 26, 2022, Guests can feast their eyes and stomachs upon some returning dishes coming to the festival marketplaces, like the Petite Avocado Impossible Burger from Avocado Time, or try some new options like the Peanut Butter & Jelly Mac from Nuts About Cheese.

The fun and feasting doesn’t stop at just the festival marketplaces. Guests can enjoy this celebration all around Disney California Adventure Park. There is truly no shortage of food and drinks to enjoy this year! And don’t forget about the Sip and Savor Pass, which allows Guests to try up to eight different food and non-alcoholic beverage items at participating locations. Guests can use all eight tabs themselves – or split with a friend! Passes can be purchased at several locations through Disney California Adventure Park.

Guests will be fully immersed into the flavors and culture of California by attending weekend cooking demonstrations with professional chefs, jamming out to live music, or enhance their visit with exclusive festival and bookable experiences within the Park and at Disneyland Resort hotels, including the Carthay Circle Winemaker Receptions or head over to Cocktails @ Sonoma Terrace hosted by CORKCICLE, which features an expanded menu of craft brews, signature cocktails, savory snacks, and more. And what trip is complete without a little shopping to commemorate this foodie extravaganza! Guests can pick up a Tasting Passport to ensure they don’t miss out on any of the fun or flavors.
