8. CHEF JR ACTIVITIES: We just so happened to be flying solo this time around, but if you have your kids with you there are still plenty of things for them to do at the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival! “Aspiring young chefs can get in the kitchen where they’ll mix a variety of ingredients to create make-believe treats. With silly supervision from Chef Goofy, kids follow a recipe and then swirl everything together (little hands may get messy). The finished goodies go into the magic oven and―voila! Each child gets a wrapped, ready-to-eat baked treat. There is no cost to participate. The Jr. Chef kitchen is open for fun several times daily at Paradise Park, near the Golden Zeph.” via Disneyparks.com
10. DATING AT ITS BEST: When I told my husband about the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival we decided that this would be a fun opportunity to plan a solo Disneyland vacation – Disney dating at its finest! I mean, it doesn’t get better than this, does it? Great food, great drinks, amazing ambiance – we had an amazing time. So if you’re looking to celebrate something special or just plan a fun getaway for just the two of you – DO IT!
