Carthay Circle World of Color Dining Package Changes (and Annual Passholder Offer)

Share This!

Disney California Adventure’s World of Color nighttime spectacular is one of the most popular productions at the Disneyland Resort, and having a meal a the park’s upscale Carthay Circle Restaurant has been the best way to secure “Center Stage” VIP viewing area tickets to the show. Recently, Disney has made a major change to the way World of Color Fastpasses are distributed to Carthay Circle diners.

Previously, anyone eating at Carthay Circle for lunch or dinner would receive a WoC ticket at no extra charge, as long each person ordered an entree along with an appetizer or dessert. Recently, a “fixed price” 3-course menu was introduced for WoC diners, and the original 2-course option has now been eliminated.

Currently, in order to receive WoC passes, Carthay Circle customers must order from a limited 3-course lunch menu ($39 adults, $22 children) or dinner menu ($59 adults, $24 children). You can see the available meal options by following the above links; notable, the popular duck wings and cheese biscuits are not offered on the WoC menus.

If you have already made your Carthay Circle reservations under the old WoC policy, and have a printed email confirmation, you may ask them to honor it. Otherwise, all new dining reservations fall under the new policy, and all guests on a dining reservation may be required to order from the fixed-price menu in order to receive viewing tickets.

If you are a Disneyland Annual Passholder, you can try out the WoC menu at Carthay — or the other WoC menus at Wine Country Trattoria or Ariel’s Grotto — for free, thanks to a new special offer. Passholders can book a 2-night or longer stay on most nights between 8/18/2013 and 9/28/2013 at any of Disneyland’s 3 onsite resort hotels at 15% to 20% off standard rates, and also receive a free WoC lunch or dinner package for each member (up to 5) of your party. Non-Passholders can get similar discounts on Sundays through Thursdays from 8/25 to 9/28, minus the free dining.
