Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival has returned to The Disneyland Resort!!

The Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival is my favorite time of the year. As a huge foodie I’m always excited to try new foods and sample new wines.

Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival 2024 – Everything You Need to Know

What and When is it?

Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival is a celebration of the delicious foods and spirits of California. Guests can purchase samples of a variety of delicious foods, wines, beers, and other drinks. Seminars, demonstrations, and guided tastings are also available, some free and some for an additional price.

The Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival is being offered every day between March 1, 2024 through April 22, 2024. Regular Park admission AND a park reservation for Disney California Adventure is required (or park hop after 11am), and food and drink items are an additional cost.


Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival – Where to Go

Enter Disney California Adventure and head down Buena Vista Street towards Carthay Circle Restaurant. Right at the entrance to the Festival Corridor is a Welcome Center where you can pick up a tasting passport and ask a Cast Member any questions you may have.

Most of the food and wine Marketplaces are located along the Festival Corridor (aka the parade route) in between the hub and the Golden Zephyr attraction. The festival itself extends all the way to Paradise Gardens and also into the Hollywood Land area, so there is lots to explore!

In addition to all that, some Downtown Disney restaurants are serving special dishes and drinks during the festival season.

Throughout the Festival area, look for these displays with maps and entertainment guides.

There are 10 Marketplaces total, with 3 or 4 food items and 1 or 2 drink options at each.

Adjacent to some of the Marketplaces are hi-top tables where you can stand and eat your food. Utensils and napkins are available from self service dispensers. In between Marketplaces you’ll also find kiosks selling official event merchandise as well as some third-party products.

To order, approach the registers next to the Marketplace, pay for your order, then take your receipt to the window of the Marketplace. Your food and drink items will be prepared quickly, and you’ll be given a cardboard tray if needed/requested. You can take your food to the nearby wooden counters or a nearby table. Don’t forget to grab napkins and utensils!

You can order any marketplace food item from any marketplace register! Order all your food at once, and then take your receipts directly to the pick-up window of the marketplace. Look for the shortest line and order all your food from there! This is such a time-saver!! Just be prepared with a list of all the foods you want so you don’t forget anything. 

Disney California Food and Wine Festival – Mobile Order

You can also mobile order for select locations. Marketplaces do not offer mobile ordering, but you can mobile order some of the festival offerings from the following locations:

  • Paradise Garden Grill
  • Sonoma Terrace
  • Mendocino Terrace
  • Cocina Cucamonga

Disney California Food and Wine Festival – Sip and Savor Pass

Be sure to also pick up the Sip and Saver Pass! Each tab on the Pass can be redeemed for one food or one non-alcoholic drink item at any of the marketplaces. The lanyard is $64 for eight tabs, making each tab worth $8 (or $59 for Magic Key passholders – $7.36 per tab). Food prices range between $6 to $10, so if you use the tabs on the right items this is certainly a good deal.

You can also pick up the Sip and Savor pass at multiple locations throughout the Festival. Lines are longest at the entrance to the festival; I suggest picking up your Sip & Savor at either Elias & Co on Buena Vista Street or Rushin’ River Outfitters.

(FYI – Sip and Saver passes cannot be used with mobile ordering.)

Keep walking into Paradise Gardens and you’ll find the Festival Beer Garden. 

This year the Culinary Demonstrations and Jr Chef experiences are taking place at the Backlot Stage in the Hollywood Land area. The character photo op has also been moved to this area.

Speaking of photo ops, a few of the Marketplaces have cute murals which are perfect for Insta photos!

I’m really excited about this year’s festival! I love the new additions and the unique food options. I’m planning to visit a lot and try as much as I can! When you go, don’t forget to plan your menu ahead so you can order all at once, bring a hat and sunscreen in case you have to stand in the sun while snacking, and drink plenty of water!
