Looks like Genie granted us one of our three wishes at the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival! Not only did we get to meet Jonathan Weir and Reggie De Leon, who play Jafar and Iago in Disney’s Aladdin the Musical North American Tour, respectively, but we also got to eat tacos with them and the Disney Eats team! What a day.
We also got to speak with Chef John, the Culinary Director of Disneyland Resort, who showed us some of the tasty creations guests will be able to try during the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival.
Watch these surreal moments and follow us through the rest of our food crawl at the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival:
“I love it! It tastes like chicken!” De Leon exclaimed, in his iconic Iago impression, after trying the Chicken Teriyaki Slider with Spicy Dole Pineapple Jam from LA Style. On a scale of one to 10, we bet Iago would rank these tacos a solid 11. Especially in comparison to crackers.
If you haven’t already, you need to head to the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival sometime before the event ends on April 12, 2018 (but preferably ASAP), and taste all the savory dishes for yourself!
