We Experience A Magical Street Food Crawl At Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival

What could make the most magical place on Earth a bit more magical? Street food and booze, in our humble opinion.

Disneyland’s annual Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival at Disney California Adventure theme park is booming and guests are able to indulge themselves in spellbinding dishes that’ll bring the most powerful king and the poorest pauper together for a meal.

A few of us Disney lovers hopped into the park to check out some of the best things the Food & Wine Festival had to offer. To say it was a good work day would be such an huge understatement.

The annual celebration that features California-inspired small plates, desserts, and wines has been expanded to feature nearly twice as many food booths as the previous year.

Mouthwatering dishes from the 15 Festival Marketplaces include Maple Bacon Macaroni and Cheese, Pork Belly Adobo Baos, Sliders, Jackfruit Carnitas Banh Mi Nachos, Macarons, and Whoopie Pies.

Let’s also not forget there’s tons of wines.

Aside from simply food and wine — though that’s pretty much all it took to win us over — the Food & Wine Festival holds culinary demonstrations, wine education seminars, live music, and sells limited-time festival merchandise.

Make sure to check out Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival before it ends on April 16. Unless you don’t mind waiting another year to partake in the magical festivities.

Once the festival ends, make sure to consult our Disneyland food guide to check out some of the best things to eat at the two California theme parks.
