    going to DL in July and I'm looking where would be the best place to see Paint the night parade. someone said by small world but I hear parade is now at CA. is that correct

    Hi there Guadalupe!

    Thanks again for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I cannot tell you how excited I am now that the Paint the Night Parade has returned to the Disneyland Resort. This is my absolute favorite nighttime parade. The music is energetic, the costumes are amazing, the floats are incredible, and the lights are mesmerizing. Now that this parade is performing in Disney California Adventure Park, I must say there really isn't a bad location to see it as long as you have a clear view of the parade route. 

    If you want an extra special experience with a reserved viewing area then I would definitely recommend one of the Paint the Night Dining Packages. You can go on a culinary adventure at Wine Country Trattoria or Carthay Circle Restaurant with a special 3-course menu paired with a ticket to a reserved area to view the parade later that evening. The Wine Country Trattoria viewing area is a roped-off standing only section whereas the Carthay Circle Restaurant viewing area offers chairs to sit and watch the performance.

    Another viewing option is to watch this parade from a unique vantage point at the Sonoma Terrace Paint the Night Reception. This reception offers an array of appetizers, dessert, and a glass of wine, beer, or nonalcoholic beverage. It's truly a magical way to end your day!

    No matter how you choose to view this parade, you will be leaving humming the music and wishing you could see it again. I hope you enjoy the dazzling display of a million lights!
