    WHAT TO RIDE FIRST? Grizzly River Run or Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT! or Mater's Junkyard Jamboree or Soarin' Around the World? Deciding which attraction to visit as you walk in the gate at Disney California Adventure requires some planning, some deciding, some conferring with friends, some re-configuring of previously agreed-to plans, and then just going for it, which means dashing for the decided-upon ride.

Here's the whole tempting shebang, and where to find each food and drink, but dally not: While the rides you love will roll on past April 12, the Food & Wine Festival will, quite sadly, end.
