It’s almost here, the moment you’ve been waiting for – nighttime spectaculars are coming back to Disneyland Resort! As the daylight fades on April 22, the “Main Street Electrical Parade,” “Disneyland Forever” fireworks, and “World of Color” will bring even more spectacular magic back to Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park once again. And with this exciting entertainment returning, it’s only natural that there are some tasty eats and sips joining them.
Across both parks, you can enjoy delicious treats and eye-catching novelties because what better way to celebrate these spectaculars than with some extra love for your tastebuds? From the Parade Macaron at Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe to the Light-up Elliott Dragon Premium Bucket, these items are the foodie embodiment of these incredible entertainment must-sees and bring their enchantments to the plate for you to indulge in!
If you’re looking to enhance your nighttime celebrations, reserve one of the special dining packages, featuring tons of yummy dishes as well as reserved viewing of a select spectacular! Over at Disney California Adventure park, the World of Color Dessert Party, which can be booked starting April 20, serves up decadent delights and sips at Paradise Gardens Park, while the World of Color Dining Package can be enjoyed at Wine Country Trattoria for a 3-course meal or an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet at Storytellers Café at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. At Disneyland park, enjoy the Main Street Electrical Parade Dining Package at Plaza Inn featuring classic comfort dishes. You can book this experience as early as April 14!
