Disney California Adventure to host food, beverage festival-like experience in March

While Disneyland resort and theme parks remain shuttered amid the COVID-19 pandemic, a new ticketed food and beverage festival-like event will be coming to Disney California Adventure.

In a letter that commemorated the 20th anniversary of Disney California Adventure Park Monday, Disneyland Resort President Ken Potrock announced directly to cast members that a new offering is headed to the resort, soon.

"Currently planned to begin mid-March, we will debut an all-new, limited-time ticketed experience, focused on our world-famous food and beverage offerings from around the resort, the latest merchandise and unique, carefully crafted entertainment experiences…all to be offered multiple days a week," Potrock wrote in his letter to cast members. "With limited capacity and enhanced health and safety measures in place, Guests once again will get to step into a magical Disney environment — an environment that will provide memorable and fun experiences our Guests are craving."
