Disneyland’s Festival of Holidays is here and like the last two years, it’s a fun way to experience a celebration of multicultural food, music and entertainment for the holiday season. If you are familiar with Disneyland Food and Wine Festival, Festival of Holidays is a similar set up. Special gourmet small bites, desserts, beer and wine, cocktails and non alcoholic drinks.
Booths are set up throughout California Adventure and there is no extra cost to visit the booths but park admission is required. You can simply walk up and order menu items.
This year, a Festival of Holidays Sip and Savor pass is available to both regular park ticket holders and annual pass holders. I have some Sip and Savor Pass tips at the end of the post.
If you are planning to visit Disneyland during the holidays, you can find the best deals through Get Away Today, and I highly recommend booking your trip with them. They even have a layaway option if you want to make payments! If you use the promo code Pencil, you can save $10 off a Southern California package when you book. You can even get discount Disneyland Park Tickets through Get Away Today! Do not miss the upcoming Black Friday Special!!!

Disneyland Festival of Holidays Sip and Savor Pass Tips
- Available to Purchase at various locations in California Adventure. We purchased ours from Elias and Co. on Buena Vista Street.
- $49 for Annual Pass Holders and $54 for general park ticket holders.
- You get 8 food and drink coupons. These do not include alcoholic beverages.
- Can be used on multiple days through January 8th. So if you are there for more than one day, you can use throughout your visit.
- You do not have to have a Sip and Savor Pass to participate in Festival of Holidays. Just walk right up to the booth and buy the menu items.
- Most Important Tip – to get the most for your money, use the Sip and Savor Pass coupons for the more expensive menu items, like the seafood and red meat. If you pay full price for the pass which is $54, the cost per coupon works out to $6.75. Most of the desserts are in the $4 to $5 dollar range.
- A good strategy would be to use one Sip and Savor Pass for two people and use the coupons for the savory menu items, then buy the desserts offerings or non alcoholic beverages as needed.
