Food and wine dessert guide

Food & Wine Festival runs March – April 2024.

Wine tasting? Sure, they’ve got that covered. But let’s talk dessert tasting!

Our list of 75 desserts from Festival of Holidays was so popular we decided to reprise it for Food & Wine Festival. Disneyland Resort provided me with vouchers to taste-test these items.


I’ve gathered all the top desserts at the Food & Wine Festival booths so you can hop from kiosk to kiosk and satisfy your sweet tooth while at Disney California Adventure Park this spring. But first, check out all of our Food & Wine Festival Q&A here

2024 menu items expected in early March 2024.

Food & Wine Dessert Tasting: Berries

These berry treats are exactly what California dreams are made of! Fresh berries are grown throughout California, then showcased in a variety of festivals from spring through August. At Disneyland Resort, you’ll find the berry-sweet treats you need to kick off our Disneyland Food & Wine Dessert tasting.

Food & Wine Dessert Tasting: Chocolate

Chocolate is my go-to dessert. I love a good chocolate. I love trying everything chocolate, it’s an easy task!

  • Mickey-shaped Caramel-Peanut-Milk Chocolate Macaron, available at Nuts About Cheese marketplace. I ordered enough for an army. Kidding! This was the display at our media event and it might be my favorite visual ever. Stacks of Mickey macarons. I couldn’t finish an entire one alone, you’ll find the ingredients to be similar to a Snickers bar.

With silly supervision from Chef Goofy, kids follow a recipe and then swirl everything together (little hands may get messy). The finished goodies go into the magic oven and―voila! Each child gets a wrapped, ready-to-eat baked treat.” -Disney Parks Blog
