    I am travelling to DL was looking at the WOC dining packages. Does the Carthay Circle package have a different viewing area to the other dining packages? And if you purchase this package do you still need to arrive early to secure a good spot?

    Hi again Ashleigh and thanks for coming back to see us!  I am beyond happy to answer your question because Carthay Circle Restaurant and Lounge just happens to be one of my all time favorite restaurants at Disneyland.  Not to mention the fact that you can pair this elegantly delicious meal with preferred viewing for one of my all time favorite Disneyland shows!  What a win/win deal, huh!?

    So as you noticed, there are a few options when it comes to the World of Color Dining package.  If you dine at Carthay, you will be granted access to the most premium viewing location of all.  Carthay viewers are grouped into their own section which is extremely spacey and front and center for the show!  It is total, unobstructed, optimal viewing for the colorful bursts and projections of World of Color!  It just doesn't get any better and I can personally recommend this avenue as I have used it many times!

    If you select a World of Color Dining package, you definitely don't have to arrive as early as the general viewing folks, as your ticket grants you access no matter when you arrive.  That said, you'll still want to arrive early to take advantage of the best location within that roped off area!  I'd say about 30 minutes will suffice, as all spots within that section are prime!

    Please keep the questions coming, Ashleigh!  Hope to hear from you again soon!
