This article is your complete guide to the Disneyland Food and Wine Festival 2022. Many Disney lovers are aware that Walt Disney World hosts an annual Food and Wine Festival in the fall, but did you know that Disneyland does too? During the Springtime in Disney’s California Adventure park, guests can experience a west coast Disney food festival. During the Disneyland Food and Wine festival you can experience marketplace booths, culinary demonstrations, live music and more! After being put on hold in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are so excited that this festival is being revived for 2022.

So, if you’re ready to learn everything there is about the 2022 Disneyland Food and Wine Festival read on!

Disneyland Food and Wine Festival Overview 2022

Disneyland Food and Wine Festival

If you’re looking to visit Disneyland this upcoming spring, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the 2022 DCA food festival. Not only is it the perfect place to try small plates of delicious food, it is also family friends and offers free cooking seminars! This Disneyland food festival is completely free with your California Adventure park admission.

While there aren’t a ton of details out quite yet, we will continue to update this article with all the newest info as it is released. We are sure that the 2022 Disneyland Food and Wine Festival is going to be better than ever. Mostly because the 2021 Disneyland Food and Wine festival was cancelled. That means Disneyland has a whole year of magic to make up for!

Disneyland Food and Wine Festival Dates 2022

Disneyland Food and Wine Festival

One of the details we know about the Disney’s California Adventure food festival are the dates! You can expect almost two full months of sipping and snacking in the Disneyland park. The official dates are March 4th – April 26th, 2022.

When are the 2022 Disneyland Food and Wine Festival Dates

  • March 4th, 2022 – April 26th, 2022

Best Time to Visit DCA Food and Wine Festival 2022

While the 2022 Disneyland food festival runs only 2 months, it is important to know that some days will be better than others! The Disney California Adventure Food and Wine 2020 ran a little bit earlier in the year, its dates being February 28th, 2020 – April 21st, 2020. But with only a few days different, we feel that the best times to visit will be relatively the same!

When is the best time to visit the Disney DCA Food and Wine Festival 2022?

  • March 4th-6th
  • April 23rd – 26th

So, why did we choose the first and last weekend of the Disneyland Food and Wine Festival 2022? Because every date in between overlaps with Spring Break for most schools and universities! So just note that DCA in California might be very busy during this time, but still worth it.

Disneyland Food and Wine Festival Food Booths 2022

While the food booths for the 2022 DCA Food and Wine festival have not been announced, we can tell you what we do know about 2022 DCA food booths! All of Disneyland Food Festival 2021 booths were celebrating California cuisine with fresh, vibrant and fun menus. When the DCA Food and Wine festival begins, they will have the Disneyland Food and Wine Festival passport. This will be your mini pocket guide to all food booths and where to find them! Disneyland food has always been top notch, and we cannot wait to see what booths come this year.

Like mentioned above, that last Disneyland Food and Wine Festival took place in 2020 and offered 16 different food booths.

Disneyland Food and Wine Festival Sip and Savor Pass

Disneyland Food and Wine Festival

One of our favorite things from the 2020 DCA Food and Wine Festival was the Sip and Savor Pass. Throughout DCA at different stores or Festival Merchandise carts, guest could purchase a prepaid lanyard that was good for 8 different items at the festival. For $56 the Disneyland Food and Wine 2020 Sip and Savor Pass was a crowd favorite!

Our favorite things about the Disneyland Food and Wine Sip and Savor pass is that it is sharable, transferrable and a deal! There are no limits on how many people can share a Sip and Savor pass at the Disneyland food festival. At 8 dishes, if you spend at least $7 a dish, you will get your money’s worth! You also don’t have to do it all in one trip. If you’re too full or spreading your trip out over a few days, bring your lanyard back with you.

Possible 2022 Disneyland Food and Wine Festival Events

Jammin’ Chefs

The different line up of free entertainment and culinary shows will keep you busy all day! The Jammin’ Chefs are a musical group that boogie with Chip and Dale as they drum, dance and engage the crowd in lively music. They use culinary objects to make incredibly catchy tunes, adding a lot of “spice” to the Disneyland food festival. You can find these musical chefs on Paradise Pier every hour until the sun sets.

Chef Culinary Demonstrations

In 2020, one of the biggest highlights were the celebrity chefs and Disney chefs that took to the stage to offer free demos. This came with recipes, lessons and tips from these culinary professionals! The DCA Food and Wine festival welcomed a new chef almost every single day allowing for an exciting schedule.

Family Time Seminars

Every Friday and during the weekends, Chef Daniella Malfitano would do family meal demonstrations at the Hollywood Land Backlot Stage. All of Chef Daniella’s creations were kids and families to learn how to make easy healthy snacks are dinners. Who knew you could go to DCA in Disney and learn how to make family meals?!

Junior Chefs

Kiddos between the ages 3 and 11 can have a hands off cooking experience with Chef Goofy for free! We aren’t sure if this will be coming back for Disneyland Food and Wine Festival 2022, but it truly was an amazing experience for little chefs. Participants even got to leave with a free cookie.
