    We wanted to do the dessert seating option for our family during the world of color holiday spectacular on December 8, but missed our window and it is now full. Can we still make reservations with our hotel concierge when we arrive; or get on a waitlist?

    Hi there Lisa, it sounds like you have a very special trip to the "Happiest Place on Earth" coming up!  You've come to the right place!

    World of Color - Season of Light at Disney California Adventure Park is absolutely spectacular!  I was able to see the show last year, and the combination of our favorite Disney stories set to holiday music is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit.  My recommendation would be to keep checking for dining reservations for the World of Color Dessert Party as your trip gets closer.  Plans change all the time for Guests, so there is definitely a chance that a reservation will open up! 

    There are also a few other options for you to be able to catch this dazzling nighttime spectacular.  The first is that you can try to grab a virtual queue selection the day of the show.  You can to try to join the virtual queue for a preferred viewing area in the Disneyland app starting at 12:00 PM.  Another option would be to explore a World of Color Dining Package, where you'll enjoy not only a delicious meal at either Storytellers Cafe or Wine Country Trattoria, but you'll also receive access to a separate reserved viewing area for World of Color - Season of Light.  The dining packages are a great option since you have access to that separate viewing area, and you do not have to arrive as early to secure a viewing spot as you would without that access.  

    I'm wishing you and your family a very merry visit, Lisa, and I hope you're able to secure your reservations!  If we can help with any other questions for your trip, please come back to planDisney!

    Have a magical day,
