New Disney Festival of Holidays 2023 Food Guide Festival of Holidays Food Guide

It’s that magical time of year when the Fall decorations start to subside and the Holidays march closer. We’ve got so much to look forward to in Walt Disney World this festive season, with Jollywood Nights and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party; who can wait? However, there is also a lot of excitement for Disney guests over on the West Coast, with the Disney Festival of Holidays kicking off on November 10th!

Let’s take a look at the mouth-watering dishes and sips that have been released for Disney California Adventure Park and Downtown Disney District. In a fusion of holiday events, cultures, and cuisines, these menus are inspired by various traditions and holidays, like Christmas, Navidad, Hanukkah, Diwali, Kwanzaa, and Three Kings Day. Sounds pretty magical to me; let’s take a look!
