Is the Sip and Savor Pass Worth it?

The Disneyland Sip and Savor Pass offers great value, allowing guests to enjoy savings compared to purchasing items individually. It’s also a great way to budget and set a limit on how many items you will buy from the festival. 

The best way to use your Sip and Savor Pass to get the most value is to purchase the more expensive items. Generally, each food and non-alcoholic drink will cost $7-8. Let’s break down the cost of the Sip and Savor pass to see if it’s worth it.

  • The 8-tab Sip and Savor Pass (at full price) costs $61 – that’s $7.63 per item 
  • If you purchase food/non-alcoholic items that cost $7.64 or more, you will be saving money with the pass.
  • Overall, since most items cost $7-8 you will be saving on average $3-5 with the Sip and Savor Pass

Magic Key Holders save even more as their pass costs $56, ultimately saving a few more dollars. Below is a list of everything we ate at the festival with the Magic Key Sip and Savor Pass:

  • Carnitas-style Pork Belly with esquites corn mac salad featuring Tajín Habanero – $9.00
  • Baja-style Fish Taco with cabbage slaw, cilantro-lime crema, and pico de gallo – $7.25

Using our Magic Key discount, you can save $13.75 which may not seem like a lot but for Disney, these savings are rare!

Overall, we think the Sip and Savor Pass is worth purchasing because you are saving money, time, and allows for budgeting while enjoying your day at the Food and Wine Festival!
