Thrill rides and magical times take a backseat to culinary experiences this March at Disney California Adventure’s annual Food & Wine Festival, which returned from a five-year hiatus last year. This year, food booths, celebrity guest appearances, and chef demonstrations will be on the menu every day from March 10 through April 16.

Celebrity Kitchen will feature meet-and-greets and demos with the likes of Robert Irvine, Guy Fieri, and Keegan Gerhard. Festival marketplaces will be dotted around the park, showcasing the diversity of Californian cuisine, from Los Angeles, the vineyards, and Baja cuisine to San Francisco food and brewery tastings.


Here is a sneak-peek of some of the tastings that will be available, courtesy of the Disney Food Blog: zinfandel-braised Wagyu beef in Wine Country; Anaheim chile and roasted cauliflower burrito with jack cheese and avocado-lime crème at the Viva Fresca! stand; triple cheese mac with smoked chicken featuring fontina, Cheddar, and Gouda cheeses at the Gold Rush booth; and white Cheddar ale and bacon soup served in a Boudin sourdough mini-boule at the By the Bay stand. There will also be gluten-free and vegetarian options.
