Disney’s California Food & Wine Festival takes place at Disney’s California Adventure Park from April 16 to May 31, 2010. The festival includes delicious culinary demonstrations, wine seminars, celebrity chefs and more — all highlighting the wonderful dishes California has to offer along with a look at international cuisine.
Like Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival, some events are included with Park admission, others require separate tickets and reservations.
