Grab your forks and your Christmas sweaters ’cause we’re heading to the Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure!
The festival, which runs from November 8th through January 6, 2020, features plenty of music, entertainment, and ALL the delicious food for guests to enjoy.
Seasonal eats and treats from around the world can be snacked on at the Marketplace Booths in the Festival Corridor. This year, guests can travel around Disney California Adventure to try 12 (!!!) different and exciting Marketplace Booths and everything they have to offer! And, just in time for the holiday season, the booths have started to make their grand arrival into the park!
Although we are expecting 12 booths, there are only currently 8 standing around California Adventure today. We’ll keep you updated with more booths and names as we find them!
So, without further adieu, let’s jingle bell rock and roll over to check out the returning booths for Festival of Holidays!
Brews and Bites
The Brews & Bites Booth is a place where you can stop by to try local, seasonal, or international brews during the festival.
Previously at the Brews & Bites Booth, we’ve spotted the Chorizo Queso Fundido with House-made Tortilla Chips, which we LOVED, as well as the Festive Progressive Flight, the Flavors of the Season Flight, and more!
We’re hopeful to see this return this year!
Favorite Things was new to the Festival of Holidays last year, and it’s making its way back into the line-up for this year! During the 2018 festival, we were able to snack on the Holiday Ham Shanks and sip on the Cranberry Sangria and Eggnog Cocktail. The Reuben Potato Tots were one of our favs!
We love almost any tots you put in front of us, and these were no exception. YUM!
We love our own grandma’s homemade cooking, but Grandma’s Recipes is a close second! Although we know a few items that will be coming to the booth, we’ve tried the Candied Yams, Beef Pot Roast, and Tart & Fruity Flight in the past!
One of the new menu items we’re excited to try is this Mickey-fied version of what appears to be Sheperd’s Pie. Everything tastes better Mickey-shaped, right?
We’re excited to taste all the new offerings released for this booth and can’t wait to learn more!
Holiday Duets is the home of pairings that will make your tastebuds want to Christmas carol! Last year, we were able to find the Shrimp and Grits with Andouille Sausage, Holiday Mickey and Minnie Cookies, and Warm Peppermint Chocolate Float.
The Shrimp and Grits were our hands-down favorite here last year! Yummy shrimp in gravy over some creamy grits? Yes, please!
This was the stand-out for us and we’re fingers crossed this one makes an appearance again!
Making Spirits Bright
Clink some glasses and say “Cheers!” with your loved ones at the Making Spirits Bright booth!
In the past, we’ve been able to taste beverages from all around the world, including local options. We’re hoping to see the Mimosa Flight, White Wine Flight, and Red Wine Flight return this year!
Mimosas+holidays always go together in our book! We can’t wait to say “Cheers!” and see what’s being served up this year.
Merry Mashups was another booth new for the 2018 Festival of Holidays that will be making another round of holiday treats this year! Previously, we’ve seen the Turkey & Stuffing Tamale, Lox & Everything Bagel Nachos, “Hot Cocoa” Marshmallow Macaron, Sparkling Wine Punch, and Holiday Punch.
This booth was a lot of fun, and we loved most of the offerings at this spot! We LOVED the mini Thanksgiving dinner that was the Turkey and Stuffing Tamale! It was a really unique and fun take on a festive favorite!
We really hope this tasty bite makes an appearance this year!
A Twist on Tradition
We all have our own Christmas traditions, but A Twist on Tradition will be surprising us with something new for the upcoming festival. We’ve spotted the Pozole Rojo Beef, “Chicken-less” Mole, Black Forest Yule Log, Winter Michelada, and Modelo Negra before, but we’re excited to discover if new items are on the menu this year!
The Black Forest Yule Log last year was (almost) too cute to eat. Hey, we said ALMOST!
This booth has had really unique items on its menu in the past so we’re excited to see what they bring to the table this year!
Christmas-themed sliders? Winter Sliderland is grilling up the holiday burger of your dreams! In the past, we’ve seen items like the Roasted Turkey Slider, Holiday Stuff Mac & Cheese, Milk Chocolate Candy Cane Pot de Crème, and the Frosty Frosé at the booth.
We love us some mac and cheese and the Holiday Stuffing Mac and Cheese last year really brought the flavor!
This booth was one of our favorite spots of the fest last year so we’re curious to see what they serve up this year!
We still have 4 booths that haven’t made an appearance yet, so we’ll be keeping our eyes out and will let you know as soon as they pop up! We can’t wait to try all the AH-MAZING eats, treats, and drinks coming to Disney California Adventure for Festival of Holidays!
Whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year, you can still enjoy EVERYTHING this year’s festival has to offer, starting November 8th!
