On Friday, November 10, Disneyland introduced a new dining package option for World of Color! This option is exclusive to Magic Key Holders as this is the Dining Package at Magic Key Terrace! We were lucky enough to be invited out by Disneyland to try this new option, so we wanted to give Disneyland a huge thank you for this opportunity. That being said, the following opinions are true to Daps Magic and have not been influenced.
This offering is a prix fixe menu that includes an appetizer, entree, dessert, and a non-alcoholic beverage. The price of this package is 62 dollars per person. For an upcharge, different items or cocktails are available on the menu as well. Here is what the menu looks like:

- (+ $18) Mist-ical Magical

After dinner, guests are given the opportunity to watch World of Color from Paradise Garden Park, near the viewing area for bands during the day! This view is absolutely spectacular for the show as you can easily see over guests seated closer to the water. It’s also a straight-on view of the show, which is always welcome for a nighttime spectacular!
We’ve all seen World of Color but the real question is, “How’s the food?!” When picking the starter, I cannot recommend the soup enough. We were served a delicious, plant-based tomato soup with homemade croutons. It had been raining most of the day and the warm tomato soup sent me to heaven. If I could have had three more bowls of this, I absolutely would have. It was that good.
The entrees did not have a single miss. Before the dinner, I had remarked that I always thought of Magic Key Terrace as a small bites eatery that was more about the bar. This meal absolutely proved me wrong. If I had to pick just one item, it would be the Route 66 Fried Chicken. The chicken is tender with lots of flavor, while the mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy are an incredible side. Again, on a cold winter night, it completely hits the spot. This feels like a full meal and will leave you satisfied (and very full!)
For dessert, the raspberry macaron (inspired by the treat at Jolly Holiday!) is a lovely end to the evening. The dessert is a perfect blend between sweet and tart, and it feels so decadent.
For $62 per person, including an amazing view of World of Color, this dining package is more than worth it to me. The food was absolutely incredible and the cast members were so kind and attentive. I was blown away by how delightfully full I was while I walked over to see World of Color: Seasons of Light. The entire experience was an amazing experience and I want to return soon with more of my friends.
