Top 5 Favorites from New Festive Foods Marketplace Kiosks at Festival of Holidays in Disney California Adventure Park

So many tastes, so little time. But you have until Jan. 8 to try the new Festive Foods Marketplace Kiosks at Festival of Holidays in Disney California Adventure park.

Diverse tastes take guests around the globe – we counted 40 different small bites in 14 marketplaces, and that doesn’t include classic sweets treats like peppermint bark and walnut fudge.

We took the challenge of choosing our Top 5:

Braised Beef Short Rib from Heritage Cottage at Festive Foods Marketplace Kiosks at Festival of Holidays in Disney California Adventure Park

1) The braised beef short rib with smashed potatoes and sauerbraten sauce at Heritage Cottage, a nod to the traditional German dish with a classic sauerbraten sauce – a little bit of zing to the rich gravy.

Chilled Papaya Shrimp Salad from Good Fortune’s Feast at Festive Foods Marketplace Kiosks at Festival of Holidays in Disney California Adventure Park

2) Asian flavors at Good Fortune’s Feast include a refreshing chilled papaya shrimp salad with crispy noodles and a chili-garlic vinaigrette to kick up the crunch. We paired it with the smoked duck & vegetable spring roll.

Chicken Cilantro Tamale from Abuelita’s Kitchen at Festive Foods Marketplace Kiosks at Festival of Holidays in Disney California Adventure Park

3) For true comfort food, stop at Abuelita’s Kitchen for the chicken cilantro tamale with roasted tomatillo salsa verde. Sip the pomegranate margarita for a perfect pairing of savory and sweet indulgence.

Holiday Eggnog Cocktail from Mistletoe Morsels at Festive Foods Marketplace Kiosks at Festival of Holidays in Disney California Adventure Park

4) We had to pick a drink (so many cocktails, beers and wines to choose from), and ours is the holiday eggnog cocktail with whipped cream and a dusting of nutmeg at Mistletoe Morsels. ‘Tis the season!

Praline & Bourbon Whoopie Pie from Winter Sliderland at Festive Foods Marketplace Kiosks at Festival of Holidays in Disney California Adventure Park

5) And a favorite sweet? Has to be the praline & bourbon whoopie pie at Winter Sliderland. A close second: the frozen chocolate milk with whipped cream and sprinkles at Yuletide Yummies.

Enjoy the holidays!
