How often do you get to eat and drink your way through Downtown Disney with friends, while supporting an amazing cause at the same time? Last week we did just that! For the first time, we attended the 7th Annual Taste of Downtown Disney. This incredible night serves as a kick off to the CHOC Children’s Foundation’s annual fundraising drive surrounding the CHOC Walk in the Park.
We had a delightful evening savoring the flavors of the following restaurants:
Catal Restaurant and UVA Bar
Naples Ristorante E Pizzeria
Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen
House of Blues
La Brea Bakery
All guests were broken up into groups, where we each had a different route for the evening. We went from restaurant to restaurant where the drinks kept flowing, the food and appetizers were being passed around like crazy - our kind of party! We rarely hang out in the Downtown Disney District, so this was really a unique experience. This would be the ultimate date night or girls night out, we think it's perfect for spending time catching up with family. We made a video to capture what a great event this was. If you've never been, you should definitely think about going next year. It was truly a night to remember!
More than just a fun night out on the town, proceeds benefit CHOC Children's.

This year, the CHOC Walk in the Park will be held on October 12, 2014. The 2014 walk covers three miles through Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park where “CHOC Walkers” get a special peek behind the magic before the parks open to the general public. At the end of the 5K walk, the event continues in the resort’s Downtown Disney District where event sponsors, hospital support groups, shops and restaurants have special offers for Walk participants.
In order to help CHOC reach its goal of providing quality healthcare to the region’s two million children, each CHOC Walker must raise a minimum of $50 to participate in the Walk. Everyone can register at http://www.chocwalk.org and receive up-to-date event information at CHOC Foundation on Facebook and Twitter.
