And we are taking in all of the bites and sips of California-inspired cuisine along the way! The Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival is ON for the next SIX WEEKS. So, you’ve got until April 12th to take in all of the Food Booths, Special Events, Seminars and Demonstrations, and more that make up all the Festival fun.

But we’ve got plenty to share right now, because we have eaten our way through all fourteen Food Booths at this year’s Festival! You can see all of our pics by visiting our 2018 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival Menus page. (Oh, and the Festival Beer Garden is back, too!)
