Disneyland’s Festival of Holidays Foodie Guide Is Here!

In just over one week, the holiday season will begin at Disneyland Resort — carolers will be singing, decorations will be hung, and a ton of incredible festive food will be offered at all corners of the Resort. And when we say a lot, we mean A LOT. Not only is Disneyland offering an extensive list of absolutely delectable food at Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, and Downtown Disney, but there will also be the return of the incredibly popular Festival of Holidays at California Adventure.

Returning to Disney California Adventure Festival of Holidays is the popular Sip and Savor Pass — which allows Guests to purchase eight entitlement tabs that they can use to purchase select food and non-alcoholic dishes throughout the festival.

Also, Disney is allowing a special one-time exemption during Festival of Holidays — the use of expired Sip and Savor tabs from the 2020 DCA Food and Wine Festival. The theme parks were forced to shut down shortly after the Food and Wine Festival began, so many Guests who had purchased the Sip and Savor Pass were left with tabs that went unused. However, Disney is making a rare exception and allowing those tabs to be used at Festival of Holiday booths.

What dishes can you not wait to try at Festival of Holidays?
