The holidays are officially kicking off soon in Disneyland Resort!
Holiday fireworks and the parade are coming back, and also returning is Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure Park. The festival runs from November 12th, 2021 through January 9th, 2022, so you’ll get a whole 59 days to take part in the celebrations, which include Christmas/Navidad, Diwali, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Three Kings Day! And, we just found out what ALL of the menus will be for the Festive Foods Marketplace at the festival!
There are 8 marketplaces at the festival along with additional offerings at several locations around Disney California Adventure Park.
There will, of course, be new dishes at the festival, like a Nashville Hot Turkey Slider at Winter Sliderland Marketplace…
…and the Impossible Arepa Encantada at Grandma’s Recipes Marketplace.
And, with Avengers Campus now open in DCA, that means their food locations can participate in Festival of Holidays! There will be Holiday Snack Molecules at Pym Tasting Lab…
…and a Pineapple-Coconut Ration over at Terran Treats.
Note that the menus for the marketplaces are a bit smaller this year than they have been in the past, but there are still some delicious options including several of our returning favorites! First up is the Braised Pork Belly Adobo with Garlic Fried Rice from Holiday Duets Marketplace!
At Brews & Bites Marketplace, the Impossible Chorizo Queso Fundido with House-made Tortilla Chips is back!
Making a return over at A Twist on Tradition Marketplace are the Reuben Potato Bites with Russian Dressing & Rye Toast Crumble.
Then, at Making Spirits Bright Marketplace, we’ll get the “Hot Cocoa” Marshmallow Macaron at the festival again!
Finally, at Favorite Things Marketplace, the delicious Holiday Stuffing Mac & Cheese is BACK!
Viva Navidad at Paradise Garden Grill will also be back this year, with things like House-made Pozole and the Torta al Pastor.
You can pick up your Disney Festival of Holidays Tasting Passport at any of the Festive Food Marketplace kiosks and get stamps as you make your way around the food festival. When you collect all of the stamps, you can go to the Holiday Central Pergola (near The Little Mermaid — Ariel’s Undersea Adventure) and receive a special completion stamp!
Also returning to the festival is the Sip and Savor Pass. Buying the pass will give you 8 entitlement tabs that you can redeem for select food and nonalcoholic beverages at participating Festive Foods Marketplace kiosks and dining locations.
And, since there was no Festival of Holidays last year due to Disneyland Resort being closed, Disney is granting a one-time exception to use your remaining entitlement tabs if you have an unredeemed 2020 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival Sip & Savor Pass.
The tabs have to still be intact and attached to the original 2020 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival Sip and Savor Pass in order to be accepted. If you don’t wish to do this, you can request to exchange the unused entitlement tabs for a Disney Gift Card eGift.
We’ll be trying out ALL of the food at the festival, so stay tuned to DFB for updates!
