Disney has confirmed what we all knew would happen, the return of the California Adventure Food & Wine Festival at the Disneyland Resort!


2016’s Food & Wine sign

This year Disney has promised the festival will be bigger than ever, running from March 10th to April 16th and featuring more festival booths than ever before! In addition to this, rather than just running on weekends, the festival will be running daily, just as it does at Epcot!

Last year saw the first return of the event since 2010, you have to wonder if now Disney are going to make sure this stays as an annual event due to the crowds and additional spending that it generates.

The festival will also feature special ticketed events like culinary demonstrations, beer, wine and spirit demonstrations and premium dining events.

Celebrity chefs will once again be joining the festival to do demonstrations and so far the confirmed list of chefs are:

  • Guy Fieri
  • Jamie Deen
  • Robert Irvine
  • Duff Goldman
  • Emily Ellyn
  • Keegan Gerhard

Disney have stated that tickets for all the experiences listed above will begin going on sale from the 1st of February!

One piece of advice, do not go to this festival thinking it is going to be as big as the one at Epcot, last year there were just 8 festival booths and though there will be more this year, it is impossible to match the scale of Epcot.

As soon as I see the menus become available I will be sure to share them with you all!

Will you be attending this years festival?
