Family-Friendly Presentations and Entertainment
If you have a little pastry-chef-in-the-making (ages 3 – 11), you may want to check out Alice’s Wonderland Bakery Unbirthday Party (inspired by Disney Junior’s new animated series Alice’s Wonderland Bakery)!

Check the Disneyland App for times. And note that in 2022, participant sign-ups began 45 minutes before each show time, offering space for 32 kids on a first come, first-served basis.
And what’s a Food and Wine Festival without Chef Goofy??
He often appears at the Hollywood Backlot, so you can say HI!
Be sure to keep an eye — and ear! — out for special Festival entertainment such as live music at Palisades Stage and the Paradise Gardens Bandstand. Performances at the Palisades Stage include The Filharmonic, Midnight Hour, Phat Cat Swinger, and The Tina Aldana Band.
