World of Color Dining Packages Announced

Dining Packages for the World of Color have been announced! The dining packages will work like Disney World’s Fantasmic Dinner packages. Guests will book their dining arrangements and eat well before the show begins. After dining, guests will receive tickets for reserved viewing at the shows. Ariel’s Grotto and Wine Country Trattoria are the restaurants participating in the package.
Update: After June 14, 2012, World of Color Dining Packages will no longer be offered at Ariel’s Grotto.

Dinner Seating Times

Dinner seatings for the 9pm show will be from 4-6:30pm. Dinner seatings for the 10:15pm show will be from 6:30pm-8:30pm.

Ariel’s Grotto

A prix fixe meal with reserved viewing will be available in the elegant surroundings of Ariel’s Grotto on the edge of Paradise Bay. After dinner, guests will be offered admission to the “World of Color” Preferred Reserved Viewing area.

Wine Country Trattoria

Guests can enjoy a three-course, prix fixe dinner in the newly expanded and remodeled Wine Country Trattoria. Following dinner, the guests will be admitted to the Preferred Reserved Viewing area for the show. The Italian meal includes choice of starter, entrée and dessert plus a special wine pairing.

To Make Reservations, call 714-781-DINE. Note on Reserved Viewing: Each guest entering the reserved viewing area must have reserved viewing area admission. Children (ages 3-9) must be accompanied by an adult. Guests may only enter the viewing area during designated times and no early or late admission will be allowed. Guests in large parties may not be guaranteed admission within the same reserved viewing area. Separate theme park admission is required.

World of Color Picnic Meals

If table-service isn’t your style, consider ordering one of the World of Color picnic meals. Varying from cold fried chicken to delicious sandwiches, these can be ordered in advance or picked up (subject to availability) on the day you’re in the theme park!

    Umm, that World of Color show looks AMAZING. I’m surprised packages start at ONLY $37. (Isn’t that terrible to say?)

    Is this one of those things where you pick a starter, entree, and dessert? I’ve never done the Fantasmic Dinner Package in WDW. (I could never bring myself to pay for it because I know Disneyland’s show is so much better.)

    Nate — I really don’t know what the set-up will be, yet. I imagine it will be patterned a lot like the Fantasmic package.

    Karen — Not sure what the seating will be; I was told it will be exclusive seating for package diners — that’s all I know at them moment! ;-)

    Hmmmm….when I sat down yesterday to start planning our dining, neither of these restaurants made it on my final list. But I’m dying to see World of Color. I wonder how difficult it will be to get a good spot for the show w/o the dinner package?

  4. says

    I just can’t decide between the picnic and the dining package! Can anyone advise? The price for the Wine Trattoria is insanely reasonable, but we’ve only got one day at each park, so I don’t know if I want to tie up that much time sitting down and eating – plus we’ll have just spent 3 days in Napa. How is the reserved seating that comes with the picnic? If it’s good enough, then I’d probably lean towards that…

    Any input gratefully received!

    Did the dining package at The Wine Country Trattoria with our two adult children. Very enjoyable evening. Salad was disappointing-very small portion and dressing was bitter. Entrees were outstanding. Dessert sampler was fun-ok tasting. Server did a nice job, not rushed but didn’t spend forever waiting for food either. Would highly recommend doing the dinner package-no wait and preferred viewing ( no seating) area for World of Color was spectacular! Worth every bit of the $39.00. Hard to get a spot as good as this without the dinner-fast pass areas not nearly as good.

    We pre-ordered the picnic lunch/dinner & it was a couple of small pieces of cold chicken with a couple of spoons of salad & some apple thing. We were under the impression that we would have good seats for the show. What we were given was the same fast-pass tickets that anyone can get right at the Grizzly rapid ride. NO SPECIAL SEATING WITH ANY OF THE PACKAGES. The show was fantastic but don’t bother with the meal plans. Was shocked that Disney is using this false advertising, but live & learn. Well worth seeing the show however. Just go to the Grizzly ride (don’t remember the name) first thing in the morning & you’ll get a fast pass to return & see the show.

    The Yellow section seems to be the best viewing, but saw it from the Blue section (with our meal plan) & you can see it “okay” if you’re up front. Looks like the people standing on the bridge probably got the best view.
