It's that time of again! For those of you who love avocados like I do, be sure to head on over to Downtown Disney for the week long events. My favorite is the Guac Off where you can show off your cooking skills with some fresh made guacamole!
Downtown Disney Presents Second Annual California Avocado Week, July 1 - July 7
Free interactive public events commence at 5 p.m. on July 1 and continue through July 7

Downtown Disney has teamed up with the California Avocado Commission to present the second annual California Avocado Week at Downtown Disney. To kick off the celebration of American Summer Holidays and the 4th of July, Downtown Disney and California Avocado Commission are hosting free chef demos and a guacamole contest that is free to the public.
Each day, beginning July 1 and continuing through July 7, a chef from one of Downtown Disney’s premiere restaurants will take center stage, demonstrating culinary creations starring fresh California avocados, which are in season now. Attendees will be invited to taste the featured dish.
Following the cooking demonstration, there will be an interactive “Guac Off” competition. A select number of guests will be chosen to create a personalized guacamole recipe using a selection of ingredients. Daily grand prize winners will receive a $100 Downtown Disney gift card and $85 California avocado gift pack.
In addition, throughout the week, restaurants in Downtown Disney will feature special California avocado menu items and Sephora will offer refreshing avocado facials.
