Guide To The Festive Foods Marketplace at Disney California Adventure

Brand new for the 2016 holiday season is the Festive Foods Marketplace, part of the Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure, celebrating holiday and cultural traditions from around the globe. Park guests are invited to take a culinary adventure through the customs and foods from around the world while strolling the park’s Disney California Adventure Parkway from Carthay Circle to Paradise Gardens. Fourteen limited-time “kiosks,” similar to food trucks, will serve up multicultural food and drinks through January 8, 2017. Take a bite of these seasonal offerings while they last!

Brews & Bites

Another popular kiosk, located just outside the entrance to Cars Land, is Brews & Bites, where guests are invited to raise a glass of yuletide cheer while sampling local, seasonal and international beers. Choose from by-the-glass pours or tasting flights for a more diverse experience. Holiday cheese balls with assorted crackers and pretzels compliment most selections.

Winter Sliderland

If you love sliders, visit Winter Sliderland where you can get a delicious and tasty roasted turkey slider, which is basically everything you love about a turkey meal (stuffing, cranberries, gravy, and all the fixin’s) on slider! You can also order up a Kalua pork slider, along with a Praline & bourbon whoopie Pie, hard cider, and sparkling juice to finish off this menu if the turkey slider isn’t complete enough.

Fiesta en Familia

Celebrate Navidad at Fiesta en Familia at Disney’s California Adventure. Their vegetarian Green Chile Pozole will have everyone asking for the recipe. A Red Chile Pozole (with pork) is hearty enough for a meal, while the Fresh Fish Ceviche and Guava Agua Fresca will cleanse your palate and get you ready for your next stop.

Yuletide Yummies

Everything is better is packages, so the mini turkey pot pie and pesto puff pastry twist are the perfect sampling-size bite to keep you full but not stuffed. The selection of sweets here is substantial, so lines can get a bit long. A gingerbread bundt cake, eggnog cheesecake, mocha yule log, Raspberry Linzer tart, and sticky toffee pudding can sweeten any holiday as well. Wines and beers are also served by the glass and flight at Yuletide Yummies, as well as a Frozen Chocolate Milk and Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate. We wouldn’t blame anyone for camping out at this kiosk for a while.

Treats for Santa

This goodie station is more interactive than most. In fact, here you can decorate your own sugar cookies if inspiration strikes. Looking for something more ready made? Grab a Harvest puff pastry, a large selection of holiday cookies and a cup of warm bourbon cider, white hot chocolate, or holiday fruit punch.
