Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival

 The fan favorite of this years event is overwhelmingly the "Frushi" or Fruit Sushi from the Strawberry Patch booth.  The chef told me she was helping to roll the nearly 500 they sell daily that very morning.  I paired it with the Strawberry milkshake with popping boba.  YUMMY!

I have a massive sweet tooth, everyone knows this.  No one gives me a better sugar high than Disney Parks, they just outdo themselves constantly with flavors and whimsical details.  Lately Disneyland's sister park DCA has been throwing down a string of festivals centered around food, but the OG Food and Wine is still King of this magical kingdom.  Starting in Florida's 'Epcot' Food and Wine became a mecca for foodies and disney fans alike and the international flair was a perfect set up for trying small "bites" and dining around the world.  In SoCal we do things a bit differently.  California has so much to offer so FaW here is a culinary journey through the state.  We have Napa Wines, San Diego brews, LA eats, and Mexican Inspired desserts.  Add live musicians, chef demonstrations, and the overall theme park festivities, this show is just a dream and takes Disney regulars on a whole new ride for the ears, eyes, and taste buds.  So please, watch your children, keep all hands and feet inside the ride vehicle at all times, and lets get right to the FOOD!

 Kisses for the Sip and Savor pass for AP holders.  46 Bucks for 8 tabs good for food and non-alcoholic drinks.  Pro tip: buy one of these, if an item if 6.50 or more use a tab-if not, buy it outright.  Mickey Mouse Economics!

 The Guac Burger from the Avocado booth.  Tasty and substantial.  Keep in mind they only make them Med-Rare!  Use a pass coupon for this.

 BOOZE!  Mimosa Flight with fruity flavors.  I don't drink but these three were given two thumbs up by Carl who really knows his bubbly.

 This was the only "miss" for us.  Wasn't a fan of the Orange Chicken from the Citrus booth.  Just a bit too tangy and the meat was over fried.  We followed this with the lemon macaroon from the same booth and that was sooo amazing, it had a surprise blueberry filling!
