Once again, after reading through tons of these posts in this thread I am still completely unsure if we should even bother trying to see this. I'd hate to waste the time if my kids can't even see it. It really stinks that there isn't a better viewing area for everyone!

Are the prices for the WOC dining at the Carthay Circle cheaper at lunch time, then they are at dinner? I thought I heard rumor on this.

I don't know definitively, but we ate there for lunch on Thursday (it was amazing!), and the menu did not say "lunch menu" or anything like that. So I believe everything is the same price all day.

Go look at the Carthay Circle Menus Here thread. On the first page someone posted pics of the menus posted outside. There is one for dinner and one for lunch. They offer many of the same things for the same price. There were several things that weren't offered at the other.

Is it true that GCH guest get an early WoC fast pass distribution? I saw a WoC hotel flyer posted in thr DLH thread that stated this, but it also said you needed a valid "Disneyland Resort" Key. So is this for all hotel guests?

Hmmm, that was true before June 15 but I do not know if this is true anymore.

I only believe that is true because GCH guests are entitled to early entry and their entrance is near GRR. All FPs being distributed in this location are 'blue' so I don't believe they get a better location to view WoC. I believe it's all about how early you arrive for the show.

It's a little bit different. They don't (or didn't if this no longer happens) have to go into the park to get them - it's at a different location.

If this is still available, it must be open to all resort guests seeing as how this is the Disneyland Hotel welcome letter.

If I go have lunch at the Wine Country Tattoria to get the WOC dining package, would I have to see the first showing of the WOC? I know some are saying for the Carthay that if you have lunch there you see the first show, and if you have dinner you get the 2nd show. Is this the same for the Wine Country? I would assume it is. I just dont hear much on the WCT. Its all the buzz for Carthay. As much as I really want to try that $22 burger, I'm just not willing to pay those prices.

This happens sometimes where they hand the WoC to the guests waiting to enter which tended to be on busier days than not. All resort hotel guests could use this entrance through the GCH into DCA. When this was happening DCA opened at 9:30 with the official opening at 10am. Hotel guests could enter depend 9am and 9:30 through this entrance, which depened on how busy it was. Once the gate opened the show pass distribution that is just down the trail to the pier was open.

Now DCA opens at 8 and no longer has this unofficial opening. Hotel guest can enter at 7am on Extra Magic Hour Days which happens on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I have seen no reports that they have handed out WoC Show Pass, the priority is to go to Cars Land anyway. Also on the DCA EMH days reports are that the line for this entrance is huge som stating that it almost gets into the GCH lobby as people wait for the gate to open.

WCT is very different. With lunch you get tickets to the blue zone viewing. With dinner the preferred viewing area. Yes it's for the 1st show, you can ask for the 2nd show. To get the 2nd show from the lunches it depends on if the CM can accomodate or grad a lead who can. With Dinner you get 1st or 2nd show depending on your reservation time.

I called Disney dining about the WOC seating and they are now saying Wine country Trattoria has viewing on the side, while Carthay circle is in the center.

I was trying to figure out with a 3 1/2 yo what the best option would be for securing good spots with the least amount of wait. (preferably not wet). Right now, we have a 11 am reservation at Carthay Circle and we were debating about doing the Wine Country Trattoria instead for dinner. ( I was also hoping that we could watch the parade at dinner and mark off multiple things at once-but it seems that is hard to do).

I'll be really interested going forward to hear everyone's experiences on short line up and what view ended up being.

Carthay Circle Dining Option - How early to arrive?

How early do you need to arrive to get good location using Carthay Circle Dining option? Can you arrive say 15-20mins before show and still be guaranteed access and a decent viewing spot?

Thx much

There does not seem to be a good answer to this yet, which by default means the answer is "no" to your 15-20 minute question. I personally am planning to stick with the 90 minute advice until I hear differently.

I'm starting to think that we may just stand by the fire hydrant like last time even though we are eating at CCT. Is that still in the blue secion, I wonder? It was a great spot and we could see the entire show with no one standing in our way because of the planter railing. Still trying to decide. We normally don't eat appitizers or dessert with our meals so where we want to be for WOC makes a difference.
