More Exciting News About ‘World of Color’

posted on March 15th, 2011 by Michele Himmelberg, Public Relations Director, Disneyland Resort


I need your help on this one, Disney Parks Blog readers. Can you play the sound of a “drum roll” in your head? Great! You’ve set the tone for our big news: “World of Color” was just named the Best New Theme Park Show of 2010, in the About.com 2011 Readers’ Choice Awards.

Thank you to all the fans who voted for “World of Color” – the nighttime water spectacular at Disney California Adventure park. It’s not easy to capture this massive show in words, and I like how About.com describes it: “Dazzling lights, soaring fountains, and stirring animated scenes from Disney and Pixar animated films combine to form a stunning tapestry of color and spectacle…”

We thought you would enjoy a look back at the reaction from guests – and special VIPs – after they saw “World of Color” on opening night last June:

More than 2 million guests have seen “World of Color” since it debuted and their experiences are creating lasting memories. Here’s what one reader on the Disney Parks Blog said about his favorite memory from the experience.

Joey from California: “The most exciting time viewing ‘World of Color’ was when I took my little nephews James (6) and Gavin (3). We had a ‘World of Color’ dining package at Ariel’s Grotto, so we had FASTPASSES for the Preferred Dining Section in Paradise Park. The little ones were extremely excited! … Once the show got to a start, all I heard was ‘Wow!’ ‘Cool!’ and ‘Awesome!’”

Thank you, Disney fans! We’re so glad you like “World of Color.” Have you seen the “TRON” encore for the show?

Well deserved! I loved it.. it was worth waiting until Jan 2011 to get the chance to see it for my birthday and see it with friends, so I did see the TRON encore and loved it!

I was so amazed by this show.

Speaking of the TRON Encore (or TRONcore) how much longer will that be showing with World of Color? I’m a big TRON fan but I haven’t been able to make it out to see this or ElecTRONica yet. I was excited to learn that ElecTRONica would be extended through Labor Day meaning I’ll be able to check that out on our trip in late May/early June, but I was wondering if the TRON Encore to World of Color will still be playing then as well.

We purchased the WoC Picnic. Best $14 I spent on this trip (besides the to die for Mac n Cheese at Napa Rose). We got preferred section with our picnic purchase and we were literally front and center. I was so happy to be right in front of the action. I still remember ‘Dancing Waters’ at the DL hotel many, many years ago. Of course this blows that away, but Disney has always been unparalleled with their entertainment.

We were actually at the park yesterday 3/15 when the news broke, and an announcement was made prior to both WoC shows that night of the honor WoC just received. The crowd roared and cheered in approval.

Will there be a World of Color soundtrack? I heard there was one in the works, but none of the CMs know if its coming.
