The Disney Food & Wine Festival is back at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim and while fans can still find some of their favorites on the tasting menu, such as the Mickey Mouse-shaped Snickers macaron, more than 60 new items (primarily drinks) can be found at this year’s event.
Generating the most buzz early on, has been the “elote paleta”(pictured above) and for good reason. Piggy backing off the success from last year’s “frozen guacamole” ice cream bar, the park took a similar approach with the elote version for 2023.
The elote is just one of a handful of items to get excited about this year, as cultural diversity is shown throughout, per usual.
If you’re not familiar with the event, more than a dozen food carts are sprinkled within the park, with items that can be ordered a-la-carte, but many like to take advantage of the “Sip and Savor Pass” which comes with eight vouchers to try an array of personal-sized versions of the food.
The pass can be purchased at the park for $59 ($54 for Magic Key members) and cannot be used toward alcoholic drinks, but give guests the opportunity to munch on several of the innovative dishes.
Those looking to dig into the new food items, look no further and plan ahead before your trip. The festival has now begun and will continue through April 25.
The item that’s getting most of the buzz is the sweet corn paleta. Combining sweet and savory, the ice cream bar is topped with corn, parm crema, chile-lime seasoning, corn crunch, and cilantro.
