  • I love this Festival!

  • Follow on Twitter!

  • OK, so I signed up for Twitter, and added Disneyland, but when I went to message them, it gave me an error saying that Disneyland had to first follow me… Am I not doing it right?

  • If you have a computer and an email address, then you can sign up for a Twitter account at

    I am anxiously awaiting your tweets @Disneyland!

  • Aw, but I don’t have a Twitter. I would really like to win this. I turned 21 this year and I still have not had my first drink yet. I would love to say I had my first glass of wine at Disney California’s Food and Wine Festival!

  • I don’t have TWITTER.! Can I still have a chance of winning be on FACEBOOK only.? *(maybe have a winner from twitter and a winner from facebook) to be fair and balanced…Have a great day and rest of the week everyone.!

  • This sounds great…wish I could have a chance at winning the trip, but I don’t do twitter. Hopefully you will be doing something for those of us who follow you on Facebook.

  • Sounds like fun, going this weekend for Disney Music Days. I just followed Disney on Twitter, do I need to do anything else?

    • Christopher, if you’re following @Disneyland, you’re set for today. Check back tomorrow for details on how to enter.

  • I hope I win!

  • It’s really unfortunate that the finale “Taste Food-Wine-Life” event is on a weekend where BOTH days are blacked out to Deluxe annual passholders… We would have been there again this year, if even just Sunday weren’t blacked out. (We went last year and had a great time!) Next year, please choose a weekend where passholders can enjoy both the event and the park on the same trip!

    • Dan, I was just told that admission to Disney’s California Adventure park is not required for the Taste Food-Wine-Life event. This is also listed under the event in the Festival Guidebook.

  • So excited for the Food and Wine festival! I’ve every year since it started and it’s a great time. I am very disappointed that they’re charging for some of the seminars now though.

  • How fun!!! I want to go!! :o)

  • My first trip to Disneyland was in 1955. My aunt lived in Long Beach across the street from Bobby Burgess and we used to play cowboys and indians in his front yard. Good memories of our chilhood. We are now on a fixed income and can’t afford many trips there, but would love to go again. We live a little over 100 miles from there.

  • Can you only win by following Twitter or can you follow the contest by Face Book too?

    • You will need to follow us on Twitter to participate in the Sweepstakes. We’ll share additional details tomorrow that should help answer your question.

  • This sounds GREAT!!!!!!!
