The Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival came to an end on April 16, which so happens to be Easter Sunday. I went a few weeks ago on my birthday with Shellie, and for this last visit, I came with Stephen and Karen. Unfortunately, DCA ran out of the “Sip and Savor” pass, so everything we bought would be full price (with tax).
Our first stop would be in Hollywoodland, to the “LA Style” marketplace for the Chicken Teriyaki Sliders ($6.50) and 2- Korean BBQ Beef Short Rib tacos ($7.00). Stephen also had a beer: Deschutes Brewery’s Black Butte Porter, while Karen and I grabbed a coke at the nearby Award Weiners.
Our next stop would be Bacon Twist, where we’d get the Smoked Bacon Mac & Cheese ($7.50) and the Maple-Bacon Whoopie Pie ($4.25). Compared to my last visit, I enjoyed this Mac & Cheese more than the French Onion Mac & Cheese from the Onion Lair.
Our final stop was Off the Cob, for the Sweet Corn Nuggets with Beef Chili ($6.75), and the Roasted Sweet Corn Custard Tart ($4.50). While I was at Off the Cob, Stephen went to the beer stand to get a flight of Northern California beers from 21st Amendment (@21stadmentment), Bear Republic (@BearRepublic), Sierra Nevada (@SierraNevada), and Drake’s Brewing Co. (@Drakesbeer).
Disney California Adventure didn’t feel very crowded, so after eating we decided to go on Toy Story Mania. While walking to the attraction, we spotted Streetlight Cadence performing at the Beer Garden. We first saw them perform was at Tam o’Shanter and found out they perform regularly at Disneyland Resort, usually at the Downtown Disney area.
The estimated waiting time for Toy Story Mania was 45 minutes, but it actually took 20 minutes longer than posted. After the ride, we called it a day and went home.
