Last year I wrote a post about my ultimate Mother's Day present: spending Mother's Day weekend at the Disneyland Resort. Yes, I love Disney to death, but no, I'm not saying this is the perfect present just for Disney lovers -- actually, any mom who loves food, wine and pampering would love it, because just like last year, Disney's California Food and Wine Festival will be in full swing on Mother's Day weekend.
Unfortunately we just missed the start of the festival when we visited the Disneyland Resort during spring break, so you'll have to take Disney's word on how fantastic the event is. Here's how they describe it:
Disney’s California Food & Wine Festival will create culinary experiences for guests of every palate – April 16 through May 31 – at Disney’s California Adventure park and select locations across the Disneyland Resort. Chefs, winemakers and brewmasters will celebrate The Art of Flavor at this year’s tantalizing festival, which features entertaining culinary demonstrations, outstanding wine and spirits seminars, and delicious food, wine and beer.
There will be cooking demos run by Disneyland Resort chefs and celebrity chefs, including one of my favorite Food Network dudes, Guy Fieri. There will be a cooking demo especially for kids, a "Taste of California" marketplace, a weekly Sweet Sundays event that sounds too delicious to be true, and so many other events you just have to go to the event page to read all about it. It sounds like Disney is taking your run-of-the-mill food and wine festival, sprinkling some Disney fairy dust on it and taking it to the next level, like only Disney can.
My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Now do you believe me when I say it would make the perfect Mother's Day present? Quick, Alfie, there's still time to surprise me!
