    We will be in Disneyland in late October. What dinner package is best to watch the Paint the Night parade?

    Hi, Patricia!

    Welcome, and thanks for asking this Disneyland Resort question. Paint the Night is a must-do for my family so I’m glad you’re making plans to experience it during your vacation!

    There are currently four Paint the Night Dining Packages that offer the convenience of reserved viewing for the parade at Disney California Adventure Park along with a unique dining experience. The best choice really depends on your budget and the type of dining you'd prefer. With the Carthay Circle Restaurant option, you’ll enjoy a 4-course dinner of eclectic, Southern California-inspired dishes from a prix fixe menu. The Wine Country Trattoria option (my family's favorite) includes a 3-course lunch or dinner of California- and Mediterranean-inspired dishes, also from a prix fixe menu. Viewing areas for the Wine Country Trattoria Dining Package are standing only, but the Carthay Circle Restaurant Dining Package includes a chair for each Guest to view the parade.

    Another option is the Sonoma Terrace Reception at Golden Vine Winery which features a premier view right along the parade route. This package includes a one-hour pre-parade reception with a charcuterie tray and desserts plus wine, beer, soft drinks and other beverages. Guests enjoy treats and view the parade from the comfort of a chair, plus each person is sent home with a box of assorted truffles!

    The newest option is a VIP Viewing Package that includes a 5-course dinner with wine pairings at Wine Country Trattoria, dessert and beverages on the balcony of Boudin Bakery, and priority reserved seats for the parade. It would be an unforgettable experience for you and your very important people!

    I hope this helps you decide which package is best for you, Patricia. Please visit us again with more questions!

    Wishing you magic,
