Food and Wine Festival Tips
Marketplace kiosks open at 10:30am. People will start lining up about 20 minutes early at their favorite kiosks.
Lines at individual kiosks get long! You don’t have to spend your entire day in line though. Find the shortest line and order everything you want(including items from other kiosks) all at once. Then, you simply show your receipt at the kiosks you’ve purchased items from and you can pick them up without waiting on line.
Keep in mind, you don’t have to have a sip and savor pass to purchase food from the Marketplaces. You can purchase items individually too.
I hope you enjoy the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine festival! It’s one of my favorite seasonal events. Probably because I love Disneyland food and it’s fun to watch Disney chefs give my favorites a distinct Disney twist. If you’re looking for more Disneyland planning info, I’ve got you covered!
