If you follow our blog I am sure you have seen our coverage from the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival in the past. The annual event is one of our favorites every year! Did you know that the festival actually has a twin?! Out on the west coast, Disneyland’s California Adventure park host the Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival!
The 2018 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival will take place at the Disneyland Resort from March 2 through April 12, 2018!
That’s right! This year’s event is six full weeks of festival fun, giving guests a great opportunity to experience all that the Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival has to offer! Rightfully living up to the parks name, all of the food and beverage offerings at the California Adventure Food and Wine Festival have a Californian influence or fusion to them. This twist on the Food and Wine Festival gives visitors a truly authentic taste of the California culture and local eats!
Once again in 2018, the Festival will offer a daily format meaning that the festivities will take place on both the weekdays and the weekends. As opposed to in years passed where the festival only took place on just the weekends.
The 2018 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival will begin on March 2, 2018! We are looking forward to when Disney will release the full list and menus for the food booths this year. As of right now we do know that the festival this year will feature 13 booths. Disney has confirmed 4 of these booths and has even released some of their menu offerings! Let’s take a look at the 4 booths we know are coming to this year’s event!
I Heart Artichokes
The ‘I Heart Artichokes Booth’ will be making a return for the 2018 Festival! Last year guests marveled at the creativity of this booth’s menu items! The Disney Chefs used a popular California staple, the artichoke in ways you wouldn’t expect! They even created rich dessert items using the artichoke as the main ingredient. We know that the booth will be serving at least two dishes from last year. One of these being the Fried Artichoke Carbonara with garlic aioli and smoked bacon, and the second is the Artichoke Cake Pop with dark chocolate and pistachios!
During last year’s festival guests could visit the ‘Lemon Grove Booth.’ This booth is returning again this year but with a reimagined twist and under a new name, the ‘Citrus Grove Booth.’ We know that the Meyer Lemon Macaron with blueberry marmalade, Meyer lemon cream, and blueberry dust will be making its return this year! This decadent item was a big hit at the 2017 festival!
Nuts About Cheese
The ‘Nuts About Cheese Booth’ will be back again this year. Here you can enjoy the Goat Cheese Tartine, this year the popular item will be enhanced by being topped with honey and pistachios.
The ‘LA Style Booth’ was a smash hit during the 2017 festival. Many Food and Wine Festival fans are thrilled that the ‘LA Style Booth’ will be returning again this year! Here guests can enjoy a favorite from last year, the Chicken Teriyaki Slider with spicy Dole pineapple jam! Also returning to this booth will be, the Korean Barbecue Beef Short Rib Tacos with kimchi!
