California Adventure Food & Wine Festival FAQs

My first Food & Wine Festival experience was in 2017 and I was beyond impressed! Considering I don’t drink alcohol, you might wonder what I could find so impressive about this seasonal event.

It really brings such a fun, festive vibe to California Adventure with different cuisines, drinks and entertainment options and truly has something everyone can enjoy.

What is Food & Wine Festival at Disneyland Resort? 

Disney’s Food & Wine Festival celebrates the cuisines and flavors of California through delicious food, drinks and demonstrations.

While you can find incredible food throughout Disneyland Resort, Disney’s Food & Wine Festival is celebrated only at Disney California Adventure Park. Beyond eating food and sipping drinks, there are culinary demonstrations, crafts and family events, live entertainment and more.

Disney’s Food & Wine Festival is celebrated at Disney California Adventure Park, on the pathway that borders Paradise Bay (the water area in front of Pixar Pier) and Paradise Gardens Park and into Hollywood Land, Pacific Wharf and Avengers Campus in 2022.

Food and wine really are on the top of everyone’s list when they come to Disney California Adventure’s Food & Wine Festival.

You’ll find the parade route lined with various booths, where you can sample small bites and drinks as you wander your way through California Adventure.
