2023 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival

Sip & Savor delicious drinks and dishes that are carefully curated by Disney’s chefs at the 2023 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival. It doesn’t stop at just eating your way through Disney California Adventure guests can fully immerse themselves in the Festival with culinary demonstrations  conducted by Disney Chefs, Celebrity Chefs, and local chefs on Fridays through Sundays. 

Kid Friendly Activities and Experiences

Disney is changing things up for the festival season and Soarin’ Around the World is being replaced by the return of Soarin’ over California, and yes prepare to smell the orange groves! In terms of entertainment, guests can enjoy the Jammin’ Chefs - Chip, Dale, Daisy and Clarabelle - at the Paradise Gardens every hour from 10:30AM to 4PM, but make sure to check out the Disneyland app for the most up to date times. Chef Goofy also makes an appearance in the Hollywood Backlot for a photo op! Guests traveling with young culinary masterminds will be excited to Decorate cupcakes for FREE at “Alice’s Wonderland Bakery” Unbirthday Party.

There are typically three different sessions during the day and each session is open to the first 32 people who sign up, so we HIGHLY recommend signing up as soon as you get into the park! Kid’s can even dress the part of young chefs and create their own Chef Hat and decorate it to fit their personality at the Craft Station to the left of The Little Mermaid. 

Adult Experiences | 21 & over

*An ID will need to be shown to participate in some events* 

Adults can participate in so many different fun and exciting beer, wine and mixology seminars throughout the length of the festival. There are a select few that are available at hotels that must be reserved in advance and cost an additional fee such as the Trader Sam's Mixology Seminar, where guests can learn to make a Hippoppoto Mai Tai. If you prefer beer or wine there are also countless opportunities to attend a seminar. The different seminars range in price and are subject to availability. 

Festival Marketplaces

Bring your appetite to this year's Food and Wine Festival, because there are some amazing dishes and drinks to choose from! There are twelve different outdoor kiosks to choose from! It doesn’t stop there several different locations throughout Disney California Adventure are also participating and serving tasting portions of some of our favorite dishes! Certain locations in Downtown Disney will also have Festival offerings, but they will not be participating in the Sip and Savor pass. 

Sip & Savor Pass

A Sip and Savor Pass is a great way to conveniently experience all of the culinary masterpieces available throughout the festival. A Sip and Savor Pass retails for $59 for guests - $54 for guests with a Magic Key or Disney Visa. Each Sip & Savor Pass card will have 8 tabs on it that can be redeemed for different dishes and nonalcoholic beverages throughout the Festival. We highly recommend using the tabs on the more expensive festival offerings to get the most bang for your buck! If you’re wondering if 8 tabs is just too much food for you, have no fear! These tabs can be used for multiple people, or you can choose to come back another day before the festival ends on April 25 and use them then!
