There’s something unmatched about the holiday season at Disneyland. Mickey and Minnie dress up as Santa and Mrs. Claus, fireworks and rides like It’s a Small World get seasonal makeovers, there’s gingerbread and hot chocolate everywhere you turn … it even snows on Main Street, right in the middle of Orange County. But across the promenade in Disney California Adventure park, the Disney Festival of the Holidays celebrates Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Navidad, Diwali and Three Kings Day through food and performances.
It’s a lot to take in, literally: at eight pop-up food kiosks and the park’s quick service restaurants, there are more than 50 specialty holiday foods to try. And I, my friends, set out to try them all.
