    That sounds hopeful then. It would be just my luck to go the one week since the opening that the show doesn't play. lol. I was just worried that they don't play it during the off-times or shorter days, since they don't do a lot of other shows during these times either. Last year I went the same time period between Christmas and... the rest of the year or whatever, and they didn't really have a lot going on that week.

    FYI: Today, Nov 16th, very light day, one show at 8:15 but no WOC fastpasses when I got there at 3:00. Incidentally, the Christmas fireworks show was great!

    The WOC picnic packages have rather tasty food, albeit not enough for a meal, but a perfect snack none the less. I purchased these for my Daughter and I and we got seated in the blue section. GREAT show, but I think I will skip seeing it again until DCA figures out a friendlier queuing strategy. Felt like I was cattle being herded by the CM wranglers..lol!

    I plan on heading up to the park for Christmas. Was the fireworks show really good? I ask because I usually skip the fireworks and take advantage of no lines on the rides. Best show I ever saw was "Believe"...now that was a great show!

    Yes, it is "Believe" and it was great. Lots of close in stuff off the front section of the castle. Nice Christmas carols after the title song. Go!

    Actually, this is false in two ways.

    1. The show opened in June. June 11th, actually.

    2. The show has not played every day. One day in July, there was an earthquake and all three WoC shows were cancelled.

    Yes , I stand corrected. It technically did not show 1 night because of technical problems, but it had nothing to do with not being scheduled.

    Re: A Guide to Braving the Crowds for World of Color

    I'm surprised no one has suggested this and maybe I missed it somewhere, but honestly if u just want to see the show without a FP, just go to the 10:15 show when the park is closed and watch it behind PPK. Not only are all the ropes down and u are allowed to stand there, its actually some of the best views because u are slightly above everyone and get an amazing panoramic view of it all. Hell, I went last Friday and had a FP for the red section. After 10 mins of straining my neck and trying to get a decent view of at least one of the projection screens, I just finally gave up and left the area and watched it behind the park. It was 20 times better NOT being in PPk, certainly not the red section.

    But this is for the last show of course as the 9:00 everything is blocked or roped off. But the 10:15 show is great and since the park is closed, only a few people bother to hang around if they dont have a FP (I guess why they dont rope it off at that point). And I guess if there is an 11:15 show, that would be the time to see it as well with the 10:15 roped off.

    I'm actually thinking never to bother with a FP again. Just wait until the last show, show up a few mins before it starts and get a great view every time. Even better, u wont feel packed like sardines while enjoying it .

    ^ Sorry, what's PPK?

    Edit: eh...never mind, I get it. Though I am a bit confused. Where exactly behind PPK would you go?

    I stand right behind the yellow section of PPK (or Paradise Park, sorry about the shorthand). Its the middle section of course so just great views. And like I said, unless u are getting off a ride after closing and still in the park because of it, hardly anyone is there as everyone else went home or to DL. But that may change when The Little Mermaid opens next year as it will be more traffic in that area and they might rope it off for all shows. But for now, its great.

    Any idea what the current dinner menu is or where I could take a gander at it? Or would it be safe to assume that it will be pretty much the lunch menu with a slightly larger portion?

    AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

    If you buy the lunch do you get preferred viewing for the first show? On nights where there are two shows, the second show should have less people in the preferred viewing area? Are my assumptions correct?

    Re: A Guide to Braving the Crowds for World of Color

    We are headed to the DLR for our first December trip in several years, and our very first time seeing WoC. We are planning on getting a fastpass for Thursday night's 8:15pm show. This guide has been extremely helpful as we plan, but I had a question on anyone who has seen it recently on a one-show weekday night?

    When does the fastpass generally ask you to return, and given that information, how much earlier from that time do you typically stand in line to get a better viewing option (i.e. the "front" of a certain section or tier). We'll have several young kids in our group, so we hope to get a decent spot to view it.

    Thanks for any help you can provide!
