We know that this all-new event will include a focus on food and beverage from around the resort. Though we don’t have much more concrete information than that, we have been seeing hints here and there as to what we can expect to be coming to this event. Based on the information we know so far, we suspect that this event may include your favorite Disneyland Resort restaurant.

Details About DCA Event

As we wait for more information to be released on pricing, ticketing, and dining, we’re all starting to get curious about what this festival will entail. Well, when a Disney fan, Milly, inquired about tickets to the “small Food and Wine Festival,” we found out that it’s not a festival at all!

Here’s how a planDisney panelist responded:

Hey Milly!

Welcome to planDisney!

I see you’ve heard the wonderful news about the new offerings that are coming to Disney California Adventure Park! This new limited time ticketed event won’t be a festival like the ones that have been offered in the past. Even though this won’t be a festival, you can expect this new event to be all about your favorite food and beverages from both parks! I’ll leave it up to your imagination but think of the best of the best food and beverage options from both parks coming to this event. Please note that attractions will not be operating during the event.

This new ticketed event will start sometime around mid March. Disneyland Resort officials are working hard to finish up the details including price, start date and food and beverage options and they’ll be sharing all the details very very soon. Make sure you follow along with the Disney Parks Blog to be the first to know!

Well, Milly be sure to check in with us again once all the details are announced if you have any more questions for us.

Remember, always believe in the Magic!

Many fans have expressed that they wouldn’t be willing to pay an entrance fee to enter Disneyland Park without attractions if food and beverage weren’t included, as Buena Vista Street and Downtown Disney District have been operating as such. It’s quite possible that Disney may include something like a Sip and Savor Pass that will include a certain amount of food and beverage at Disney California Adventure, but you could be able to purchase more at an extra cost. At least, that’s what many Disney fans are hoping for. We’re still uncertain at this time if Legacy Passholders will be offered a discount on tickets to the event.

DCA Table Service Restaurants

Well, many of these restaurants will have menu items involved, but one restaurant at Disney California Adventure may be bringing a little more to the table, quite literally. In a Facebook post by Workers United Local 50, a union that represents food and beverage workers at Disneyland Resort, we can see from the union that the Disney Park is recalling Cast Members for a table service restaurant.

Since this new event is being held at Disney California Adventure, and it looks like marketplace kiosks will still be included, could this table service restaurant dining option possibly be the Lamplight Lounge, formerly the Cove Bar? It does have ample outdoor seating, so it would not be difficult to comply with state guidelines, and its location makes it an obvious choice for a table service restaurant that could operate at this new event.
