WOC newbie here....we will be at DLCA 12/25-12/31 and are psyched to finally see WOC. We moved from SoCal just a month or so before WOC opened.

We have done the dining package for Fantasmic! at DHS in FL and thus intend to do so for WOC. My question is whether or not it matters which restaurant we choose from those that offers the package. Are there different levels of viewing areas offered by the package? are there any restauarants that you can watch WOC directly from?

Which restaurant you choose for a WOC dining package depends largely on your food preferences and price range. WCT offer a prix fixe meal (with generous portions) and CCR is a la carte (so the bill can be large if you order many items). WCT requires each person to order from the WOC prix fixe menu and CCR requires each person to order either 1 appetizer & 1 entree or 1 entree & 1 dessert from the regular menu. There is no restaurant from which you can view WOC directly. There have been reports over the summer of people with Preferred Dining FPs being put into different viewing sections based on where they dined, but I think by the time you arrive, most of the confusion will have been cleared up.

I'm looking for a map with the location for WoC fastpass kiosks at Grizzly River clearly marked.

Is there a specific reason why you want a map? The WOC FP machines are right next to GRR, and there are signs that say World of Color, and CMs pointing the way to the machines. If you can find GRR in person or on a map, you'll find the FP machines.

As the PP said the WOC FP machines are right at the entrance to GRR. Any DCA map will show you where GRR is. The OP has a link to a photo:

At this time the Grizzly River Run FP machines are dedicated to World of Color in the morning, transitioning mid-day to offer GRR and WOC in parallel. See WOC and GRR FPs Distributed in Parallel.

Yellow Line Up

I have a question about Yellow lineup. I have purchased picnics for tomorrow (Monday, Oct 1) because we will be arriving later in the day.

If I want to try for the "prime" yellow spots at the wet rail (hey, it's gonna be 103 degrees, so wet sounds good!!), do I want the West or East Yellow queue??

Thanks for any help/info!!

I will see WOC in two weeks and will update the OP. I do not believe there is an east yellow queue anymore. You will need to check when you arrive but I think there is only west or at least something that is towards the west.

So I think I've got my gameplan on. My only other question, is that I'm probably going to go in ahead of DH and the kids. However, I'm wondering if anyone knows how far before the show starts will they open the queues? We are going to a Thursday show, so only one show that night at or around 8:15. In case I'm being confusing (because I often am). I'm wondering when before the show will they let people in to the standing area?

Thanks everyone!

There is no reserved seating for WOC. There is reserved standing.

It appears that viewing areas for CCR and WCT are the same but the CMs may direct guests of each to different areas and if the guests do not ask then they end up in different areas. But if they ask then they go to whichever area they want. In other words CMs try to make it simple by telling you where to go but you are not required to go to those areas and need to speak up.

Any advice on where the best place to eat for WOC? Currently we have reservations for CCR, but after reading pages and pages of this thread, I dont know which is the best. We are a family of 4. 2 adults and a 12 year old and 5 year old. Would a lunch option possibly be the best option for the 1st WOC showing as opposed to a dinner?

I would guess around 7:15pm. For a 9pm show on Aug 21, I was let into the viewing area around 8pm.

I'm sorry. I'm sure this is answered somewhere but I can't seem to find it. Is there any place outside the park to see WOC? We'll be staying at DLH. I thought I remembered reading about a view from the PPH pool? Is that the best option?

We won't be getting in until an hour before closing so it doesn't make sense to buy the extra day. (At least not anymore since it means buying a one day ticket.)
