    We have tickets for California Adventure on 12/09/22, how do I purchase tickets for the night time holiday water spectacular?

    Hiya Tom,

    Welcome to planDisney! I’m so excited that you and your family will be experiencing the magic of the holidays at Disney California Adventure. There is no better place to celebrate the holiday season than a Disney Park!

    It is super exciting that the World of Color – Season of Light is returning this year to enchant and delight. Based on your question, I am guessing you are asking about how to watch World of Color – Season of Light from the ideal vantage point in the reserved viewing areas. To access the reserved viewing areas, you must have either a valid virtual queue selection or a voucher from a World of Color Dining Package or Dessert Party.

    The virtual queue is free and can be accessed starting at noon PT on the same day of your visit through the Disneyland app. Spaces are limited, so if you want to do this, you must be prepared to join the virtual queue at noon. As someone who loves food, let’s chat about my favorite options the World of Color Dining Package and World of Color Dessert Party.

    For the World of Color Dining Package, you cannot make reservations for the dining package online or via the Disneyland mobile app. To get a dining package, you will need to make a reservation at either Wine Country Trattoria (for lunch or dinner) or Storytellers Café (for dinner) once your advanced dining reservation window opens (60 days before your visit). Once you arrive for your reservation, you would then let the Cast Member know that you would like the World of Color Dining Package. If you choose this option, the dining package is subject to availability and first-come, first-served, so there is no guarantee that you will be able to receive a voucher for the World of Color Preferred Viewing Area. If you are like me, you need a guarantee before you arrive, so allow me to present the World of Color Dessert Party!

    With the Dessert Party Package, you can combine preferred viewing of the festivities with yummy desserts and cheeses! Best of all, you purchase your admission online, so you will head to Disney California Adventure knowing you will have preferred seating for World of Color. Like making an advanced dining reservation, you can make your reservation for the Dessert Party 60 days before your visit. Reservations can be made starting at 7:00 AM PT, and they will go fast, so be sure to set your alarm!

    I hope this answers your question, Tom. If you need anything else, please come back and see us!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
