Food and Wine Festival kicks off Friday

The 2019 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival begins this Friday morning. The fourth edition of the Festival runs for eight weeks, March 1 through April 23, 2019, bringing 14 Festival Marketplace locations to the park. Counting the special menu items offered at the Paradise Garden Grill during this event, there are more than 40 dishes for festival-goers to sample.

Visitors this week may be able to sample the new dishes during soft-opening previews on Wednesday and Thursday. Many of the booths were placed in the park last week, some offering a preview of their 2019 menu. Disney has not released full menus for all of the booths, but has confirmed the list. The Brewhouse was replaced by the new Golden Dreams booth, and Eat Your Greens has made way for the new Veggie, Veggie, Fruit, Fruit booth.

  • Avocado Time
  • Berry Patch
  • California Craft Brews
  • Citrus Grove
  • Cluck-A-Doodle-Moo
  • Garlic Kissed
  • (New) Golden Dreams
  • I Heart Artichokes
  • LAstyle
  • Nuts About Cheese
  • Off the Cob
  • Paradise Garden Grill
  • Peppers Cali-ente
  • Uncork California
  • (New) Veggie, Veggie, Fruit, Fruit
  • Select Festival Food & Beverage Carts

Back for 2019 is the Sip and Savor pass, this time offered to the general public as well as Disneyland Resort annual passholders. The pass provides eight tasting portions of selected food and beverage items from the Festival Marketplace locations listed above. Note that Paradise Garden Grill is included in this list, but don't expect to receive a full-sized portion of the entrées sold there. As with the Lunar New Year festival, the Paradise Garden Grill will serve a tasting-size portion of their Festival entrées to customers who redeem a Sip and Savor tab.

The "Sip and Savor Pass" is $54 to the general public, and passholders will receive an as-yet-unspecified discount on the pass and a special lanyard when they show their AP at the time of purchase.

Several event venues have relocated for 2019. Disney has moved the complimentary live culinary demonstrations back to the Backlot Stage in Hollywood Land. This venue has limited seating. The demos are at 3:00 p.m. on Fridays, and at 3:00, 4:15 and 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sundays. No samples are served during these demonstrations.

Disney has not released a schedule of demonstration topics, but has called out the first of these daily demonstrations as a "family-friendly" presentation with Chef Daniella Malfitano.

Kids will also enjoy the Junior Chef offering in Hollywood Land. The Junior Chef program gives children ages 3 to 11 the opportunity to help "bake" a sweet treat, with help from Goofy and some Disney chefs. Every participant receives a packaged baked treat to enjoy after the activity.

The free offering is scheduled several times each day, so check the event schedule for the day you want to visit. Participation is first-come, first-served, and Junior Chefs under 7 must be accompanied by someone 14 years old or older. This is a very popular program, so plan to line up at least 30 minutes before the posted start time.

Disney created a whole line of merchandise for Food & Wine Festival. You can find this collection at the Studio Store in Hollywood Land; Seaside Souvenirs in Pixar Pier; and at festival merchandise carts throughout the park.

As we did last year, MousePlanet will publish a weekly guide to the Food and Wine Festival, listing the highlights for each week—look for the first guide this Friday morning, with updates each Friday. Be sure to keep an eye on MousePlanet's Twitter feed this Friday, as we explore the 2019 Festival and share our first impressions.

We invite all MousePlanet readers, friends, and family to join us at the 2019 walk, and will share registration information as soon as we have it.
  • D23 Expo – August 23–25. Tickets on sale now via the event website.
  • Gay Days at Disneyland (unofficial event) – October 4–6. More information on the event website.
2020
  • Coming Soon! When we know, you'll know!

We also recommend checking the convention calendar at the Anaheim/Orange County Visitor and Convention Bureau website. When looking at that site, remember to note both the number of people and the number of rooms resulting from each convention. A gathering of 25,000 people booking few room nights (indicating most will be driving in to the area for their meeting) can impact traffic around the resort much more than a crowd of 25,000 staying in area hotels. Of course, that second group is going to make finding a hotel room more difficult (and possibly more expensive), so it's best to book your own room as early as possible if you see that a big convention is in town during your trip.

Current Discounts and Promotions

Disneyland prices as of January 6, 2019.

Note: MousePlanet does not edit past Updates to reflect price increases; for up-to-date prices, check the most recent Disneyland Resort Update. Several current promotions offer discounted admission to the Disneyland Resort. For your convenience, we have grouped the discount offers based on the number of days the tickets are valid. Check out the category that best matches the amount of time you plan to spend at the resort, and pick the offer that works best for you. And keep those tips coming—let us know if you find a better or different offer, so we can share it with other readers!

This first section is a list of discounts on ticket-only purchases. Though it has become more common in recent years, Disneyland tickets are rarely offered at deep discounts unless you are a resident of Southern California or Northern Mexico. For residents outside that area, the best discounts available tend to be simple advance purchase discounts. If you know of any additional discounts, offers, promotions, or contests that should be listed in this section, drop us a line. Note, we are no longer listing offers from the Anaheim-Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau, as their convenience fee negates any savings.

Don't get scammed! Never buy tickets from an unofficial or secondary outlet, such as through eBay or Craigslist. Never rent or purchase tickets from people approaching you outside the gates stating they have remaining days or leftover tickets. This practice is against the terms of use for Disneyland admission, and may result in denial of entry. It is also common for criminals to shoplift inactivated Disney theme park tickets from supermarkets to resell them. There is no way to determine if these tickets are valid until you try to use them to enter the parks. Only purchase Disney theme park tickets directly from Disney, an authorized seller, or travel agency like MousePlanet travel partner Get Away Today.
