Oh My Gosh Wow! (World of Color)

At this point, I want to go back to California Adventure JUST to see this. I've never seen the like.

Disney's World of Color

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

I have to admit, it looks *really* cool. We were thinking of an Anaheim visit in Summer '11, but decided to visit Alaska before it melted, so DLR is going to have to wait until '12.

The good news is that Radiator Springs is currently scheduled to open in June '12.

Yah, if we weren't local, we'd probably wait for Mermaid and Radiator Springs too. Too bad about the small viewing area though. Sounds like they need to put bleachers on top of the Mermaid attraction.

I can totally picture this at Epcot. It makes the Bellagio fountains look like amateurs.

It's been a while since I've said this about a Disney effort...but...


(I thought Fantasmic! was good but WoC just made that like...small.)

Wow, This is one of the most unique things I've ever seen.
If something like this ever goes interactive It will be absolutely mind-blowing!

This looks amazing.

what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Holy mackerel! Now I'll have to find a way (or a reason) to get back to L.A.

For those that don't want to wait to see it in person, watch the FULL show here in 720p HD, recorded on a preview night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqijf6DZz4s

After watching World of Color come together for over the past two or so years, seeing photographs and clips of the finished product is really just heart-warming. I feel like Disney did a really great job with dreaming up the concept and executing it. THIS will definitely give California Adventure more credibility to stand alongside its older sibling next-door. This level of entertainment is what guests expect from Disney. DCA is finally going to deliver on that.

that is JUST what I was thinking!

I hate people. But I love gatherings. Isn't it ironic?

Scaling and construction of the show in the World Showcase lagoon would be a huge problem. I think Epcot should maintain it's fireworks centric show to keep the scale.

Now for that large lagoon area in Animal Kingdom next to Everest, the one with loads of land to use for a viewing area, in the park where you can't have fireworks..... hmmmmm

Replace the steaming pile of crap called Fantasmic. That show blows.

Which version of Fantasmic? Disney's Hollywood Studios or Disneyland? The one at DHS is generally considered to be the lesser of the two. You wouldn't think they would be that different but Disneyland's just seems to work better in that setting. Also, the pacing is tighter than the DHS version. But there those that don't like the Disneyland version either, so to each their own.

I tried to enjoy Fantasmic, but like Jeff, I thought it was a total waste of time. Added to this was the limited showings which increased the crowds made me think that we will stay clear of DHS on Fantasmic nights.

Yeah, at the studio park. Totally underwhelmed. Found it to be a complete waste of time.

I guess I'll be the opposing opinion but I love Fantasmic. That doesnt mean I dont think it should be improved (new dragon, dump Pocahontas section) but I love the music and to see them recreate The Sorcerer's Apprentice scene at the end is just amazing.

Fantasmic is a must do for me every time I go.

I was speechless after seeing World Of Color! Wow!

This gives me another incentive to get back out to SoCal. :) I can only imagine what it's like seeing it live!

I got to see a little preview of the show at DA in May--they were testing the lights and water so got to see like 30 seconds of it. It looked amazing!

It so figures it would be done when Im back here again :(

OMG what a great show, and I can only imagine how much more spectacular in person.

I totally agree the Florida location should be at Disney's Hollywood Studios in place of Fantasmic. It would solve a couple of problems, not the least of which is that it would replace a so-so show. (we had vip seats for Fantasmic along with our Brown Derby reservations - it was 30 degrees that night and the only good thing for us was when they shot fireballs and warmed the place up a bit! We had heard it was a great show but, sadly, a let down) Also, from photos I've seen, at CA the show area seems to be a bit of an eyesore during the day- a sea of electronics, cans, sprays, lights, platforms, etc. overtaking the water in the cee-ment lagoon. (or is it better hidden/covered with water now that construction is done?) Anyway, the Fantasmic area is off to the side away from daytime view, not to mention there would be little/no disruption or ugliness during the months and months it seems to take to build the show. The water is there. There's plenty of audience area for it too.

EPCOT World Showcase would be my second choice, but The Mole raises a good point about the scale. IllumiNations fits perfectly, is effective from just about everywhere, and it's a great show that gives me a thrill everytime I see it. I would sure hate to see it go away! Fantasmic? Not so much.

Thanks for the links, Tekwardo, and kRaXLeRidAh. I'll think I'll watch 'em again.
