    California Adventure Food and Wine Festival '08

    UPDATED: April 21 with Taste Menu (see below)

    Photos in this post were from last year's event (and were taken by Fishbulb):



    One of the most anticipated events of the year is returning to the Disneyland resort, the 2008 Food and Wine Festival. The MiceChatters have taken to this event quite fondly and have been tracking and enjoying the growth of the event from year to year. Hopefully, one day, it will become as popular as Epcot's amazing event (held every Fall in Florida)



    Grab a glass

    This year's event has expanded from weekends (last year) to daily this year from April 11 to May 5th.

    • "Winemaker Dinners" on Friday Evenings
    • "Napa Rose Cooking School" on Saturdays
    • The popular "Festival Wine Reception" on both Fridays and Saturdays
    • Wine tasting classes on Sunday's
    • Culinary Demonstrations and wine, beer, and Spirits education and tasting daily
    • The signature event of the Food and Wine Festival is "Taste" on May 3rd

    The very promising menu for Taste



    Wine Tasting Class (Excellent!)


    Patio of the Wine Reception

    There is plenty going on at this year's event. You'll be able to pick up a schedule for the day's events at the front gate on the day of your visit, or visit Disneyland's Food and Wine page here: www.disneyland.com/foodandwine


    For more information on MiceChatter trips to the Food and Wine festival, keep an eye on the Disneyland and Meets and Events section. If you'd like to join us for the Wine Reception on April 26th, please click here: http://micechat.com/forums/showthrea...ine-92382.html

    I did one of the Winemakers dinners last year. It was absolutely outstanding. It was at Steakhouse 55, the food was unbelievable, the wine was superb, the service was wonderful. I wish I had pictures to share, but I was way too busy eating

    If you get a chance to attend any of the winemakers dinner, do not hesitate to pass it up!!

    Re: California Adventure Food and Wine Festival '08

    Last year I did a wine tasting class, a wine reception and Taste. I also took advantage of several of the free cooking demonstrations and a wine tasting.

    This year, I'm doing a tasting class and a wine reception. Looking forward to it. It's my favorite time to be at DCA.

    Hope to see you all there!
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.

    We didn't get the chance to do anything last year (not sure why), but after hearing how great it was we are doing a Tasting class and the Reception. We can't wait.

    Re: California Adventure Food and Wine Festival '08

    Last year, MickeyMaxx and I were able to attend one of the Wine Receptions and also the Taste event. Because we heard such wonderful reviews of the Wine Tasting class, we will be doing that this year as well. This is becoming one of our favorite times of the year at the Resort.

    Love the before and after pics. Last year we did two tasting classes, a reception and Taste. So far this year we're signed up for two receptions, a tasting class and Taste. Like Rixter said this is becoming a real favorite time of year.

    Re: California Adventure Food and Wine Festival '08

    I went to a tasting, a reception, and Taste last year. Taste was really amazing, but the wine reception was so nice that I'm going to that again this year. It was a beautiful evening, the weather was perfect, the food was great and plentiful, and the wine was awesome. We had a pretty large group and everyone shared and gave recommendations on what we just HAD to try next! Watching the Electrical Parade from our own private patio was a great end to the evening. A relaxing and fun night- I give it a 10.
    A signature should go here.

    It s amazing how fast the special events sell out.

    That is probably why they have not needed to advertise this event YET via television comercials. I'm hoping as DCA's makeover continues that they go full force like at Epcot and start making it a big annual event

    If you can only do one event, do Taste. It's not-to-be-missed!!!
    And if you're lucky, you may get food dumped on your feet by a drunk MCer!

    I was thinking that myself, more as to WHY Food Netowrk hasnt done or thought of a planned special for it or at least a TV special for the Napa rose.
