Happy Holidays! ‘World of Color – Winter Dreams’ is coming up faster than you can imagine. This new holiday water spectacular is going to be visually breathtaking!

As part of show, we are working closely with our partners at Walt Disney Animation Studios. This outstanding group of artists is going out of their way to bring new and amazing animation to the show. From classics like “Bambi,” to new characters like Olaf from the upcoming animated feature “Frozen,” all are being customized for the “World of Color” fountain/projection stage.

To tell you a little bit more about it and give you a look behind the scenes, here’s a video with Dave Bossert, Producer and Creative Director of Special Projects for Walt Disney Animation Studios. He’s going to chat about about the custom work they are doing for the all-new show.

Season’s Greetings!


  • Will Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas to be part of the show ?

  • No mention of the World of Color Honor Choir though? I would think that is something that you would mention on this blog.

  • It sounds wonderful! I love that fresh, new elements are being added to an already wonderful show. I look forward to seeing it when we are there in December!

  • Looks wonderful!!!!! When will it start up – we will be there early November and I would love to see it 🙂

  • Amazing! When will the switch to the Winter Dreams occur?

    • “World of Color – Winter Dreams” will begin November 15 at Disney California Adventure park.

  • *forward

  • Sounds very cool. I’m looking froward to seeing this new version of World of Color.

  • Really hope they don’t leave out Beauty and the Beast Enchanted Christmas. In my opinion, it’s one of Disney’s greatest Christmas movies and deserves to be featured in the limelight a bit more than it currently is.
