Eating Your Way Through the Summer of Heroes at California Adventure

The Summer of Heroes begins this weekend at Disney California Adventure, and as with any good celebration, food will be a central element.

There will be a bunch of different items for you to try as you wander around Hollywood Land waiting for your FastPass for Guardians of the Galaxy-Mission: BREAKOUT! or watching Black-Widow drive around in her armored vehicle.
