Dining in Disneyland Review: World of Color Dessert Party in Disney California Adventure

This past March, the Disneyland Resort introduced the World of Color Dessert Party.  My family and I had the pleasure of attending recently, and what a special treat it was!  I’m always up for a Disney Dessert Party. I’ve done the Fanstasmic Dessert Party at Disneyland (currently on hiatus due to construction) and also a handful of different dessert parties at Walt Disney World.
