    Disney Food & Wine Fest Sizzling Soon
    Disneyland Resort
    Savor nearly two months of tasty tidbits and chef demos at the Anaheim theme park. When to go? The annual eat-around, learn-a-lot happening opens on March 1, 2019, and wraps on April 23.

    CHURRO, CHURRO, CHURRO: How many times, in an average week, do you speak the word "churro"? Maybe once? Maybe several times, if you're especially churro-focused? Take a moment, then, to think about how often the long, sugar-sprinkled, slightly-crunchy-on-the-outside, not-crunchy-on-the-inside treat crosses your mind during a particular week, that week before you head to Disneyland Resort.

More hurrahs? The Festival Marketplace Kiosks, which is where you'll find a whole plethora of munchable small plates and sip. There are family-nice choices, too, like tip-filled seminars with Chef Daniella Malfitano and the Jr. Chef "hands-on 'cooking' experience."

    WILL YOU STILL HAVE YOUR CHURRO? Please, there's always time for a churro at the Disneyland Resort parks. But you'll find yourself trying a whole bunch of bites, both from the meal-type categories and desserts, too, while at Disney California this late winter and early spring.
