    Food & Wine Festival from April 16 to May 31, 2010

    Disney's California Food & Wine Festival takes place at Disney's California Adventure® Park from April 16 to May 31, 2010

    I just found the dates listed above listed on the Disneyland site but not much more We went to the Taste event last year and had a good time. Is anyone going this year? Has anyone heard what seminars will be available and what dates?

    Wow.. i don't think Disney even knows yet what seminars are going to be held
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    It will be interesting to see what they have, now that Michael Jordan is gone.

    Oh I am sure that they know what events are going to be planned and what the dates are. Just the guest chefs will need to be confirmed. I am surprised that they made this year shorter than last year as all of the events seemed to be at maximum capacity and usually we don’t get to go as the event is earlier than when we go on vacation.

    The winemakers dinners are pretty good. But do the featured people this year have any connection with Disney? I guess I could google their names to find out more.
