    Question World of Color Question

    Hi! My dad and I are going to go see World of Color next week, and we got the packaged deal where we eat at the Wine Country Trattoria and then receive premium viewing tickets for World of Color. We were wondering where you begin to line up for the premium viewing spot and when the best time to arrive would be to be at the beginning of the line so we can get the best spot to stand in the premium viewing area. Thanks!

    They keep everyone, including the Premium Dining people, around the tall, red tower just in front of the Little Mermaid main entrance.

    Depending on what time your ticket says, I would say to get there about 30 minutes before the first time. Hope that helps!

    No problem!

    I don't think I made myself clear on the second point.

    If your ticket says to get there between 7-8, I would get there at 6:30. There. haha That's more clear.

    Also make sure you get a spot where you are directly in front of a fence or rope

    The big gray spot near D2 is my personal favorite.
    If the show starts at 9 you need to be at that spot by 810.

    Re: World of Color Question

    I'm still tossing up what viewing option to go for, when we go to see WoC for the first time in December; what are MCers best recommendations? I'd love to hit up the VIP section after getting to see F! from the Dream Suite, but as I understand it, thats not so easy to do with WoC

    ^ This.

    If you're not sure, jsut ask your server when s/he brings your your bill. S/he will glagly direct you where you need to go. The WOC CM's are very helpful and friendly. Just show them your fastpass, and they'll guide you to where you need to go.

    I hope you enjoy Wine Country Trattoria. I've done the WOC dining package there several times. The food is impeccable, and the service is top notch.

    Re: World of Color Question

    Interesting that on our last trip we did the Wine Country Trattoria WOC lunch (its really an excellent place to eat) and got fastpasses for the Blue section - just to the left of center. Tends to get really crowded in there. On our previous trip, we did the Ariel's Grotto WOC Dinner and got passes for the White section - dead center and far less crowded. Not sure how the allocation of dining packages WOC fastpasses works.

    A third option I took one time was to skip the dining packages and fastpass line altogether, get a couple of cold ones from the Karl Strauss beer wagon and go stand by the rail in front of Ariel's Grotto. It's side angle but we had a great time and its nice to be able to really lean on something. You have to show up about 5 or 5:30 to get a spot by the rail though. A really long wait but a great place to watch the sun set.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "white" section. The main viewing area is divided into Red (audience right), Blue (audience center) and Yellow (audience left). The Dining fastpass section for WCC and AG patrons is located in the front of Blue.

    When it first premiered, you had to get there at elast 1 hour prior to the start of the show. But now, you'll do fine with 1/2 hr prior. That's also true for the standby areas like the one you're describing. During off-peak, if they're doing a second show, it's even possible to get a decent view for the second show. They did a really good job building the dedicated viewing area. It's nothing remotely close to the sardine can that is the Fantasmic viewing area.

    Oh, also, be aware that the viewing areas are standing only.

    I guess because the perferred dining section sign is white, he thought it was the white section.

    It was White but you are right, it was exclusively for Dining Packages and probably in front of the Blue section closer to the middle of Mickey. I believe Club 33 members even have another sectioned off section within these boundaries. Someone I work with has doctor friends who are Club 33 members, they invited him and his wife along with them to watch WOC. Club 33 members really don't have to stand next to anybody (other than other club members), right in the middle, plenty of space, and minimal obstruction.
