Check Out the Foods at Disney Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure Park

Disney Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure is back again this year! From November 12, 2021, through January 9, 2022 guests will be able to experience celebrations of different seasonal holidays including Christmas/Navidad, Diwali, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Three Kings Day.

Part of celebrations is the foods that can be found throughout the festival. This year there will be eight locations for the Festival Marketplace. They will be offering nods to celebratory dishes from around the globe. Guests will be able to grab a Disney Festival of Holidays Tasting Passport at any of the Festival Marketplace and get stamps as they travel through a tasting trip of the different locations. Once all the Marketplace stamps are completed, guests can stop by the Holiday Central Pergola (located near The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure) to receive a special stamp of completion.

The Sip & Savor Pass is back again this year. With the purchase of this pass, guests will receive eight tabs that are good for select food and nonalcoholic beverages at participating Festive Foods Marketplace kiosks and dining locations. Disney is also allowing the use of 2020 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival Sip & Savor Pass tabs that are still intact on the original Sip & Savor Pass this year only as well. Guests are also given the option to exchange any unused qualifying tabs of the 2020 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival Sip & Savor Pass for a Disney Gift Card eGift.

Disney is also encouraging people to download the Disneyland App to have mobile order capabilities as some holiday food offerings at select locations will only be available through mobile ordering.
