The Stage is Set for World of Color

It’s very exciting around Disney’s California Adventure park these days. In this video we take you inside the control booth as Walt Disney Imagineers work overnight testing lights, fire and nearly 1,200 fountains for the new nighttime spectacular “World of Color.” You’ll also see some exclusive footage from our time lapse camera and more glimpses of the show. “World of Color” is set to debut on June 11. Enjoy!


  • wow looks amazing disney has done great with everthing they do!!! so exited to see it soon

  • How many lights are in the World of Color. I know that they have about 1,2000 nozzles, but do you have the exact number of Shooters,Oarsmen, Super Shooters, or Extreme Shooters the World of Color has. Also, what is the cost of the project? I’m doing a paper on the World of Color and would like to have a lot of facts.

  • Oh wow looks amazing!

  • When we go to Disneyland this July, I really hope that we can afford to go to DCA as well, I would love to see this show! It looks amazing.

  • Pretty amazing!

  • I just went to Bellagio. The World of Color reminded me so much of this show! Although the Bellagio is bigger and its fountains can shoot over 300 feet taller than the World of Color’s fountains, I still think World of Color is a good show.

  • simply amazing. please tell us there are going to be AP Previews!!!!!!

  • I’ve been looking forward to this for so long, even more so after I was lucky enough to see Steve Davison’s presentation at the D23 Expo. It’s going to be amazing and I can’t wait to actually see it. I also hope there will be a CD of the music.

  • Can’t wait for this! Flying across the Pacific every year is ALWAYS worth the while

  • I am doing a Career Exploration project for school on Walt Disney Imagineering. Do you know how I could learn more about it or how I can contact a current Imagineer?

  • That video was simply breathtaking, I still have goosebumps!!!

    June can’t get here soon enough 🙂

  • The imagineers do it again! Sweet!

  • Absolutely AMAZING!!!!! Can’t wait. To Steven & Team – Great job!!!

  • Looking forward to this show. So glad we’re annual passholders.

  • Wow! looking great. Cant wait to travel back to the states to see this!

  • I was just in Vegas and as I always do took in the Bellagio fountain show. I am never going to be able to enjoy that show in the same way after I get a chance to see World of Color. I am really looking forward to this show!

  • Fantabulous! Can’t wait to see it during our visit next month 😉

  • So exciting! I can’t wait to see it this summer!

  • Will there be a Music CD as the one for Fantasmic! at Disney World? With the audio tracks and extra music sounds?

  • WOW WOW WOW WOW!! This is going to be amazing!!

  • This looks really cool! I can’t wait to see it! Too bad it wasn’t open a couple weeks ago when I was there!

  • I am looking forward to seeing the opening show. Does anyone know what time the show will be starting? I looked at the schedule listed for that day and they list every other event and the time but not World of Color. Can it be viewed all around the water or just in the new viewing area?

  • It looks like it is going to be a great show. I already love the music. : )

  • My kids and I took pictures of it being built last summer and have been waiting in anticapation for the show!

  • Another amazing show:) Thank you for posting this!! It will be incredible in person!!!:)

  • Will there be VIP seats available for this show?
    (similar to those for Fantasmic)

  • Jaw dropping!

  • Why couldn’t I have known the opening date when I booked our trip??? We were hoping it was going to be open when we were there last week. It looks like a spectacular show! I suppose we may have to go back next year…as always 🙂

  • Wonderful!

  • whoa! if its that amazing looking watching it on a computer screen it must be completely breathtaking in person!

  • Awesome! 🙂
