Follow them as they explain the process of creating one of the most luscious loaves around. Behind glass walls, watch expert bakers taking the ingredients from dough to delicious!

This attraction, which opened with Disney California Adventure Park is a humorous tour that shows how sourdough bread is made hosted by Colin Mochrie and Rosie O'Donnell.

After entering the building, a Disney worker hands out two pieces of sourdough bread per person. The attraction starts in a room with a screen in front, where Colin and Rosie talk about the history of the bread. After this, you move into the next room which actually has sourdough bread being made. Colin and Rosie talk about what's going on, and then you move to the next window and they finish off showing how the bread is made.

Touring Tips

  • A Cast Member passes out bread samples either just outside the building or right inside the entrance.
  • There's no line for this attraction, but there may be a short wait outside until the previous group enters the bakery area. Once inside the bakery either wait at each video screen while listening to Rosie and Colin, or simply stroll through at your own pace.
  • Your mouth will be watering by the end of this tour! You can pick up rolls, loaves and sandwiches at the Pacific Wharf Cafe just across the way.


  • Boudin Bakery is San Francisco's oldest continuously running company. In 1849, Boudin was a tiny, old-world shop on San Francisco's Dupont Street. Since then, it has evolved to a world famous bakery renowned for using the finest ingredients available.
  • The bread's only ingredients are: unbleached flour, water, salt, and a portion of the mother dough.
