Disneyland World of Color Dessert Party
The World of Color Dessert Party is easily one of the best ways to experience the award-winning, nighttime spectacular that is World of Color. Keep reading to learn more about the World of Color virtual queue, World of Color Dining Packages, World of Color Dessert Party and more!
Disneyland World of Color Virtual Queue
There are a few different ways to watch World of Color at Disney California Adventure Park. First, you can access a Virtual Queue through the Disneyland app at no additional cost. However, it’s important to note that in order to enter the virtual queue, you must have entered either Disney California Adventure Park or Disneyland Park with a Park Hopper ticket. As always, a theme park reservation and valid admission is required to enter the Disneyland Resort. The virtual queue can be accessed beginning at 12:00 p.m. in the Disneyland app and is subject to availability. If you’re able to make a virtual queue selection, you’ll receive a notification within the Disneyland app to enter a designated World of Color viewing area about 45 minutes before the show begins. You’ll receive either a Blue or Yellow entrance point, so be sure to go to the correct entrance.
If the virtual queue is full, you can visit the Paradise Bay viewing area before World of Color begins to ask a Cast Member about walk-up viewing options. Of course, joining the virtual queue isn’t required to view World of Color, but we highly recommend it.
Of course, our best recommendation is to purchase either a World of Color Dining Package or World of Color Dessert Party package for the best viewing experience. Below, we’ve outlined what you can expect from each of these options.
Disneyland World of Color Dining Packages
The World of Color Dining Packages are an additional charge, but are a great option if you're looking to get priority viewing for the show. The price range for these packages range from $50 - $74 for adults and $25 for children (ages 3-9). It’s important to note that these prices don’t include tax or gratuity. The participating restaurants are Wine Country Trattoria, Carthay Circle Restaurant and Storytellers Cafe in Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Wine Country Trattoria and Carthay Circle Restaurant offer a full-service, three-course meal (lunch or dinner) from a prix-fixe menu that includes a non-alcoholic beverage. At Storytellers Cafe in Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa you’ll get a dinner buffet and a nonalcoholic beverage (specialty coffees not included). At this time, you cannot make advanced reservations for either of these dining packages. Because of this, you'll just want to let your host or serve know at Wine Country Trattoria or Storytellers Cafe that you'd like the World of Color Dining Package.
With each of these packages, you’ll receive one (1) voucher that reserves your spot in the World of Color preferred viewing area at Paradise Gardens Park.
World of Color Dessert Party
The World of Color Dessert Party makes you feel like the ultimate Disneyland VIP. The World of Color Dessert Party is $89 for anyone ages 2 and older. Children ages 2 and younger are free, provided they are on the lap of an adult. Not only will you receive a selection of desserts, cheeses and drinks, but you’ll also receive a prime viewing location for World of Color.
World of Color Dessert Party - Arrival Time
You'll need to arrive at Paradise Gardens Park at least 60 minutes before World of Color is scheduled to begin. Refer to the Disneyland app to see accurate showtimes and put a reminder in your phone to help you stay organized.
World of Color Dessert Party - Check in Location
Once you’re at Paradise Gardens Park, look for The Little Mermaid - Ariel’s Undersea Adventure. The check in location for the World of Color Dessert Party is across from this ride. Here is where you’re given a wristband so you can come and go if you need to. Children ages two and under do not need a wristband. Once everyone has checked in, you'll then be personally seated at your table in the private, designated seating area just for guests of the World of Color Dessert Party.
World of Color Dessert Party - Menu
Once you’re settled in, get ready for the food and drinks! Your server will bring each ticketed person in your party their own plate with a full spread of all of the dessert goodness. The menu is always subject to change, but you can usually enjoy bread, fruit and cheeses, cakes, macarons, cookies and so much more! It’s always a perfect mix of sweet and savory desserts, and they’re all bite-sized. You can enjoy an unlimited supply of delicious drinks, and we HIGHLY recommend the hot chocolate, which is available during the fall and winter months. Alcoholic drinks are available for guests ages 21+ with valid ID. Since the servers don’t want to block anyone’s view during the show, be sure to order all drinks before things get started.
As mentioned previously, the menu at the Disneyland World of Color Dessert Party does change with the seasons. For example, your desserts will be themed for Villainous!, the Halloween Time overlay, and for World of Color Season of Light during Holidays at the Disneyland Resort. Attending the World of Color Dessert Party at different times of year is a great way to experience a variety of menu items. No matter when you go and what World of Color show you are viewing, there will always be some fun and delicious surprises. And if you’re unable to enjoy all the food offerings in one sitting, you can take them with you in a convenient to-go box. Above is a photo of some of the seasonal treats that were served during the Season of Light version of World of Color in 2019.
The World of Color Dessert Party is currently available for $89 per person for both adults and children ages 3-9. This price also includes your tax and gratuity, but can change at any time. Children ages two and under do not require a ticket, and are welcome to share desserts with the rest of your family.
Be sure to make your World of Color Dessert Party reservations 60 days in advance of your vacation. This exclusive event has limited seating, and can sell out early during popular travel times.
