According to the Disney Parks Blog:

Some of the festival offerings include locally brewed Crooked Can Sakura Kolsh, Cherry Blossom Martini, Blue Cherry Cocktail, Chilled Panacea Oysters, and a Sakura and Peach Bavarian Dessert.
Personally I would love to attend the ramen seminar, and the sakura martini does look delicious. The specialty foods and drinks are all inspired by the blossoming cherry blossoms in Japan, a popular tourist sight in the spring time. Cheers!
