Recently, Disneys California Adventure just ended their holiday food festival, Festival of the Holidays. I attended this event and got to try out some of the vendors while there. I will admit I wish they did more of a ticket system than pay for each food item from each vendor. I didn’t get to try as much as I wanted too ( the food was kinda pricey for the size samples they gave out) but I did get to try the items I had my eye on.
This was my favorite booth. I enjoyed this delicious open Chicken tamale with a Pomegrante Margarita (not pictured). The tamale definitely had a kick to it.
I’m a Macaroni and Cheese lover so I was excited that they had this on their menu. However, I will admit. It was just okay. Being Disney, I excepted something sensational and it wasn’t nothing special.
The Eggnog Cocktail from the Mistletoe Morsels was highly recommended to me. I finally got to try it and Boy Oh Boy am I happy I did. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Let’s just say I’m happy I had the mac and cheese before I drank this because this was strong and delicious!
The last booth I tried was Treats for Santa. Their Bourbon Cider took me to that level lol. It was so good but I definitely had to go get a compete meal and find a place to sit after this.
After that eggnog and Cider, the perfect meal to soak up all the goodness is always a burger and some onion rings. So I walked over to SmokeJumpers Grill near the entrance of the park , got a Bacon Cheddar Burger with Onion Rings 😋 to go and ate this food inside the Grand Californian in front of the fireplace 😌.
So as you can see, I enjoyed Festival of the Holidays. Nothing like going to the Disneyland Resort to do everything BUT get on rides. I will definitely be back this spring for the Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival.
