This past weekend my Disney bestie Brianna and I headed down for a day at the parks to experience all the holiday time offerings. We spent most of the day eating and drinking (all the makings of a great day at Disneyland!) but we had to pace ourselves throughout the day to save room for the main event, the World of Color Dessert Party. The WOC party debuted about six months ago, likely to replace the Fantasmic Dessert Party (which will hopefully be back when the show returns since I never got to do it!). It was by far the best view I have ever had for WOC and the food was pretty good too! I would definitely consider doing it again when the original WOC returns (right now is the holiday special, Season of Light) and I really wish I would have done it during the 60th version because the view can’t be beat! Here are some of the highlights of the World of Color Dessert Party:
This is the menu that is on the table when you arrive at your seats. When you are checked in you are given the choice of a low table in the front row or a high top, cocktail table in the back row. I recommend choosing the high top table because there is a section of people in front of the dessert party area so you could have your view blocked if you are sitting at a low table (especially if you have kids). The high tops also come with super comfy director’s chairs.
As soon as you are seated, a server brings over a bread basket and your dessert plate. It took a few minutes to get our drinks, but it was pretty good champagne, so I was happy! There is also a WOC specialty cocktail and plenty of non-alcoholic drink options.
By the time the show started I was super full! My advice if you have plans for the dessert party is to eat a really light dinner because there is a lot of yummy treats! Brianna and I actually ended up getting a to go box for about half of what we were given on our plates because we just couldn’t finish.
Right now, World of Color is running a new holiday themed show called Season of Light. It was cute and had lots of fun moments, but it definitely isn’t as good as the regular version.
One of the coolest holiday parts of the show was this Christmas tree, made totally of water and colored lights.
But as cool as the tree was, the princess section of the show was my favorite (duh).
Overall, the World of Color Dessert Party was a really cool experience, and definitely one that I would do again. It’s pricey (shocker) at $75 per person, but considering the amount of food you get, and the free booze, plus the amazing view, I actually think it’s worth it. This would be a great thing to do for a date night or special occasion.
Have you done a Disneyland or Disney World dessert party before? What did you think?
