If there’s one thing Disneyland does right: it’s food and drinks! Just announced: the 2018 Disneyland Food and Wine Festival dates. If you’re planning a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth this spring, here’s what you need to know! I don’t know about you, but the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival sounds simply wonderful.
2018 Disneyland Food and Wine Festival Dates
Mark your calendars, food and wine lovers: the fun is coming back to Disneyland this year.
From March 2 to April 12, 2018, you can indulge in culinary delights at the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival. Disneyland knows how to put on a party (see the Holidays at Disneyland for example) and this is one you don’t want to miss!
I know I don’t want to miss it (see confession below!).
There will be more than a dozen Festival Marketplaces for you to drink and eat your way through a California themed experience.
And trust me, as someone born in California, I can promise you the wine is worth the trip west alone!
Confession: I actually ended up planning a trip to Disneyland just for this experience.
You’ll find me and 4 other blogger buddies trying all the food and drink we can for two days in March. Tentative hashtag to follow is #eatdrinkanddisney
There will be pictures, reviews, recommendations and delightful squeals coming your way!
While that is an adult only trip, you should definitely bring the kids! The Food and Wine Festival has plenty for the younger crowd to enjoy.
Kids are included in this experience as well: don’t miss the FREE Junior Chef experience. This is a hands-on event for kiddos 3 to 11 lead by Chef Goofy!
Don’t worry: we’re going to stop by and check out the kiddo appropriate action as well. This is going to be full immersion in the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine.
