Disney California Adventure Food & Wine dessert tasting guide is here for 2019!

Food & Wine Festival returns from March 1 to April 23, 2019.

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.Disneyland Food and Wine Festival

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

California Adventure Food & Wine Dessert Tasting | Berries

These berry treats are exactly what California dreams are made of! Fresh strawberries are grown throughout California, then showcased in a variety of strawberry festivals from spring through August. At Disneyland Resort, you’ll find three berry-sweet treats you need to kick off our Disneyland Food & Wine Dessert tasting 2019. Available at Berry Patch marketplace.

Strawberry & Coconut Rice “Frushi” $5.50. This popular twist on sushi, “Fruishi” is back in 2019. While it isn’t a full out dessert, it still has elements required for a sweet treat. Frushi is especially fun for kids to explore a new dish if they haven’t tried California rolls or the real-deal sushi yet. Food & Wine Festival Frushi features a strawberry center, coconut rice, wrapped with strawberry “seaweed” and topped with a little wasabi sauce for a little kick. This dessert is gluten-free. Available at Berry Patch marketplace.

Flaky pastry crust is topped with strawberries, blueberries and blackberries, drizzled with a sweet fruity sauce. Available at Berry Patch marketplace.

Duo Strawberry and Lime Fruit Bars $5.50. Yes, you actually get two mini frozen fruit bars in one order. This is perfect for families with two littles or a couple who wants to split.

Chocolate Crunch Cake $5.50. It’s a mini-Mickey Mouse dessert and who can resist that? A cute half dome of chocolate, topped with two edible chocolate wafers for Mickey’s ears and a Food & Wine Festival piece of sweetness. I’ll be diving into this for sure! Available at Garlic Kissed marketplace. 

Lemon Almond Macaron $5.00. If you’ve never had a macaron at Disneyland Resort, you’ve never had a macaron at all. They are to die for! Add that amazing taste and consistency to a lemon flavor and it’s a total win.

California Adventure Food & Wine Dessert Tasting | Sweet Drinks

Mocktails, shakes and non-alcoholic drinks are one of my favorite ways to celebrate at Disneyland Resort. If you’re ready to step outside of Lamplight Lounge’s huge mocktail menu, Food & Wine Festival dessert tasting is the place to be.

Ginger Beer $6.00. I’m sure you’ve tried ginger ale and for some reason I always seem to order that drink when I’m on an airplane. But this, my friends is no ginger ale. Fresh ginger really gives this drink a kick. Take a sip, and then feel that ginger make its presence known. My aunt loves these type of ginger drinks. Let’s just say I am glad I had my lemon macaron to bite into when that ginger kicked in.

Strawberry Float $6.50. Easy to take on-the-go, this Strawberry Float has strawberries, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and a surprising topping—Cap’n Crunch cereal! Available at Berry Patch marketplace.
