I was looking forward to seeing the World of Color Christmas show when we made our reservations. It seems it has been down forever but the website said it would be up late 2018. It wasn't and still isn't.

It's a great show for the little kids, def get a fast pass if you want to be close to the animation. FYI If you're close you will get wet. A must see if you visit the park.

This was an absolutely lovely show! We did the dining package with reserved seating which gave us extra time in the park. It was a bit chilly, with the mist in the air, but so beautiful! The reserved area wasn't packed, so it was nice...More

Get a reservation for the dessert party. Reservations are required way in advance. The desert is a sweet and cheese plate that is very good. Drinks and cocktails are included. Best of all is front and center seating for World of Color!

We watched from the bridge which was a great place to see everything. All I can say is amazing it was so magical, my husband isn’t a massive Disney fan but he was blown away.

Don't bother with the FastPass ticket, because you can see much better from up in the pedestrian areas than down in the reserved FastPass areas! I do think it would be worth booking a dinner reservation that comes with a ticket and seat - those...More

This is the second time doing the World of Color Dessert package. It is a little pricey but being able to sit and watch the show while snacking on some yummy treats was worth it. Your feet will thank you!!

If you download the Disneyland app you can make reservations too. It will give available times and dates when the show is available. But be advised you don't get a rain check if it rains even if you do the dining experience... More
