297 World of Color and Seth Kubersky

Welcome to the show notes for the Disney Dream Girls Podcast, show number 297 for 26th January 2020.  If you want to listen, whilst reading these notes, just click the player below or alternatively find us on iTunesLibsyn, Stitcher Radio or via any good podcast catching app.
On this week's show, we have shared a story about Disneyland security, we review the World of Color Dessert Party and then end with a fabulous chat with the author of the Unofficial Guide to Universal Orlando -  Seth Kubersky. World of Color Dessert Party It currently is bookable 60 days in advance and costs $84 per person and this includes tax and gratuity. They request you arrive 60 minutes prior to showtime however we did that and there already was a long line. 
Once in line, you are asked whether you want a high table (sitting on a high directors style chair) or a lower standard height table. We chose the higher option and was not disappointed with the view or comfort level.
For this price, you receive a pre-plated dessert plate, which consists of: grapes, cheese, biscuits, cheesecake, mini cake and a macaron (offerings are changed out and modified seasonally). Additionally, there is a basket of bread and crackers. Then there is a menu to select hot and cold, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages from. 
The food offered was plentiful and something for all palates. If anything, we struggled to eat it all and took some of the items back to our room (the will offer to-go boxes). A downside was I did find the food a little cold but that is the only complaint. 
I tried both alcoholic drinks and I felt the mixed cocktail was much nicer than the sparkling wine. As it was a cold night, I also had a hot chocolate. Wait staff came past frequently to ask if we needed further drinks prior to the show starting. After that, the show they were busy clearing the area to set up for the second show but did not feel overly rushed to leave immediately.
The view was amazing and it was a fun night shared with friends. I would do it again if I was celebrating an event or to see the World of Color show without obstacles in front of me.

Unofficial Guide Author - Seth Kubersky
Well, he said he was going to the dark side but not this dark side! He actually is on the show to talk about the Universal side, which sometimes die-hard Disney fans 'lovingly' call Universal Orlando. 
Seth joins us to give an overview of what you can and should do if you are considering a trip to The Universal Resort in Orlando. He starts by giving an overview of the hotels and the main benefits of staying at one of them. 

He then moves on to talk about the two existing theme parks. Yes, some of you will shout - they have three (as the third is Volcano Bay) but we did not talk about the waterpark on the show. 
Obviously, we discuss some of the must-try foods and drinks available.
