Okay...I was talking with the family about WoC. I wasn't sure if any of them were interested enough to actually make ADR for this. Apparently the are . So, know I'm left wondering about the details. Which restaurants? What's the best options? Any help would be appreciated!

You have a few options:
The WoC picnic meals, which you can order online on the Disneyland websiteWorld of Color Picnics | Dining & Restaurants | Disney California Adventure Park I haven't personally had one of these so I can't speak to that out of first hand experience.
Here's the other link for Wine Country Trattoria. We did this package once and it was good. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant, we were on the upper patio and it was nice to dine in the open air setting. The food was good, nothing spectacular stands out to me but it was ok.
Dining | World of Color | Disney California Adventure Park

We also did dinner at Ariel's Grotto when it was part of the WoC dining package, it was ok. We were told to get the tri-tip steak and we did. It was good but like I said, pretty unremarkable.

I haven't eaten at Carthay Circle as part of the WoC but I had lunch there when it opened and it's really beautiful inside and i'd say of the food options their food would be the best. It's sort of decorated like the Hollywood Brown Derby (WDW) inside but a bit more sophisticated and the menu is unique and excellent. You do have to have 2 out of 3 courses so either an appetizer and entree or entree and dessert. If you are going with more than one person you should each get one and share

If you're going to do it up big and do a sit down I'd vote for Carthay Circle, lunch would probably be cheaper.

We did the ADR and at that time we made the reservation at Ariel's Grotto. It was a great dinner. I don't remember what we had but Im so glad we did the reservation so that we got the preferred viewing area for WOC. You will not regret seeing the WOC show. It was fantastic. The best thing about Disneyland by far. My husband filmed it and we still watch it once in awhile. It's not like anything you have ever seen. It's beautiful.

Have a great time!!!

I wasn't sure my family would be interested in WOC the first time we saw it, but we ended up loving it! We did the picnic meals this past October and it worked out really well. We'd seen WOC a few times before with the regular FPs, but we decided to do the picnic to free up our morning (not have to pick up the WOC FPs) for Cars Land. We picked up our food not long before the show and ate it while we waited.

The first time, we had an ADR at the Wine Country Trattoria and the most recent time, we went to the Carthay Circle. I'd recommend both, but of the two, the Carthay Circle gets my vote. Not only was it superb food, the restaurant is beautiful and you get the best seating for the show - basically because it's the priciest restaurant, as I understand it. If you can spring for it, then I say go for it.

We saw World of Color a couple years ago. Here is a picture of my picnic meal. We picked it up early and ate it back in the hotel where the A/c was on! We were there on the hottest day 113 degrees!

Thanks for the pick. It does look yummy. I wonder if they do gluten free? I was also wondering about where to eat as it will be chilly in the evening while we're there, if we go with the picnic route.

Also...I notice that even though it's reserved seating, it's first come first serve on that seating. How early should one be there and can you save seats?

I don't believe there is that option, but if you order ahead of time, it would not hurt to ask; Disney is often quite good at accomidating special diets. So, I would suggest a call to see if it is even possible. Good Luck!

I booked Wine Country Trattoria for March 19th. There's only one WoC show that night. I wish I could see a map of the seating as, apparently, we have a better seating area by having dinner than we would have had we booked lunch. I don’t really mind were we sit. I'm just curious.

Anyone know if they've actually added seats?
I did the picnic in 2010 and the viewing area (off to the left side) was all standing room only. No benches or seats to speak of.
Just curious!!

Oh....I was under the impression there were seats from all the talk.

I just went back and reviewed the DL site. It does say Reserved Viewing Area. I just assumed seats. So, when it's said first come, first serve on the viewing area, it's on where to stand. So, in that case, how early should a family get to their Reserved Seating Area?
