We booked the World of Color dinner package at Ariel's Grotto when we visited Disneyland last month. The package included 3-course dinner for everyone (adults + kids) and tickets to a reserved viewing area. The food was very good! I tried looking for their menu but couldn't find anything so I've attached a picture of it with this review. Costs... More

We had dinner with a large group here 2 days after Christmas. Getting the VIP seating to the world of color show made it worth wild! Our adult food was good...not amazing...but Good! I felt kind of bad for the kids though as there menu was basically spaghetti or chicken nuggets. For the price the food could definitely improve. Service... More

We booked the World of Colour dinner and were very disappointed with the food. The menu is very limited and there was nothing on it my teenaged daughter would eat, although I had the salmon and this was quite nice. The salad was just salad and the dessert just ok. The food was pre-made so arrived as soon as ordered... More

Ariel's offered a fine dining experience and great location. If you have the choice, choose dining outside to take in the full atmosphere of the park. Although the menu was a bit pricey (about $55 a plate) and there were no child plates offered (not sure if they have a child's menu, but none was offered) the food was delicious.... More

We booked the prix fixe meal with the World of Color viewing for our very last night at Disneyland. Our reservation was at 6:30p, the service was just right and the food was actually quite good. For five of us it came to around $300. My mom had the lobster, I had the steak, my husband had the pork. No... More

Highly recommended going to Ariel's Grotto, in particular before their dinner schedule because they have multiple Disney princesses make their way around to each table. My daughter was on cloud 9! She adores her signature book and the perfectly replicated Disney princess personalities. It's now going to have to be a staple when we visit. Pricy but worth saving up... More

We recently returned from Disneyland and did Ariel's Grotto for dinner so we could get the World of Color package. The food was definitely not good and extremely expensive. In general, I think Disneyland doesn't even compare to Disney World for food. The "priority" seating we received for World of Color was not worth the price of the food. It's... More

This was worth the price to get the amazing seats for world of color alone. The salmon was amazing, and my husband loved his tri tip. The only thing I thought was lacking were the options for dessert and appetizers. What they offered was good, but keep in mind you don't get much of a choice with the world of... More
