    Hello, Where exactly is the Storyteller Cafe World of Color viewing area located? The website says Paradise Gardens, but I would like to know exactly where in Paradise Gardens is it. Which dining package offers the best view of the show? Thanks in advance!

    Greetings, Kelly! 

    You are going to love experiencing the World of Color nighttime spectacular at Disney California Adventure Park. All of the World of Color Dining Packages grant guests access to preferred viewing areas with central or near-central locations within the viewing area along the shore of Paradise Bay. At this time, the viewing areas for guests of Wine Country Trattoria and Storytellers Cafe are combined. The viewing area for guests of Carthay Circle Restaurant is adjacent to the Wine Country Trattoria viewing area. 

    Note that Carthay Circle Restaurant will be closed for refurbishment during most of January 2020, which will affect the locations of viewing locations. Those adjustments have not yet been announced. I recommend following the Disney Parks Blog or reaching out to the Disneyland Resort Dining Information Line at (714) 781-DINE or (714) 781-3463 to find out the latest information. And please feel free to return to us again here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We’re very happy to help with your Disneyland Resort vacation plans.

    I have three favorite locations for viewing World of Color. The viewing area for the Carthay Circle Restaurant Dining Package offers great central views on an upper tier to get a wide-angle view of the vast expanse of the show. If you don’t mind getting a little wet (OK, sometimes quite wet!) you will love a view of the show from the front rail immediately adjacent to the shore. I love how intensely I feel like I’m inside the show from this location. To get a front rail location, it may be necessary to arrive pretty early with standard Disney FASTPASS. Or guests in the preferred dining viewing locations may ask Cast Members to be allowed to proceed to the front viewing areas as well. My absolute favorite location for viewing World of Color is from the World of Color Dessert Party location. While this experience does cost more than the Dining Packages, it comes with excellent benefits. Besides the wonderful just off-of-center and high-up view, it includes a chair to rest on during the show and delicious sweets, cheeses, and beverages to enjoy.

    May your World of Color experience be magical, Kelly!
