Here's What's on the Menu for California Adventure's Food & Wine Festival

March 18, 2016, 11:20 AM · The Disneyland Resort has released the menus for the revived Food & Wine Festival at Disney California Adventure park, which kicks off next month. Like the original Epcot Food & Wine Festival, the California Adventure version will feature a variety of temporary food stands set up around the park. But instead of featuring nations of the world, these festival marketplaces (as Disney prefers to call them), will celebrate regions around the state of California.

The festival starts April 1 and runs on weekends through the end of the month. Even though the festival's chef-driven special events run only on the weekends, selected food stands will be open on weekdays in April, as well. Disney hasn't yet revealed that schedule, nor has it published the prices for the food that will be sold at the festival. But here's what visitors can look forward to trying at the event, including what looks like west coast Disney fans' own version of Epcot's famed Cheddar Cheese soup!

By The Bay

The Farm

Gold Rush

LAstyle

¡Viva Fresca!

Wine Country

In addition, select DCA restaurants will be adding new items to their menu during the event. The Carthay Circle Restaurant will offer a new specialty food item and wine pairing each week during the event. Other special selections around the park will include:

Fans also will find fruit-and-cheese and sausage-and-cheese plates available at the Hollywood Backlot Studio bars, Mendocino Terrace, and Sonoma Terrace.

March 18, 2016 at 4:10 PM · Wow those sound delicious. I definitely want to go.
March 20, 2016 at 7:59 AM · I find it interesting that this is only a month, yet the EPCOT version is pushing three months!
March 21, 2016 at 11:31 AM · IMO the food at Knott's Boysenberry Festival sounds more interesting than Disney's. Home style comfort food, not 'gourmet' food.

Boysenberry BBQ Short Ribs
Spicy Boysenberry BBQ Wings
Fried Alligator Bites with Fries & Boysenberry Aioli
Boysenberry BBQ Meatballs
Boysenberry Panna Cotta with Almond Crumble
Boysenberry Dessert Flautas

vs Chilled Ahi Poke with avocado crème and Wakame salad, topped with sesame tuile?
