‘World of Color — Winter Dreams,’ an all-new holiday version of the popular ‘World of Color’ after-dark spectacular, will debut at Disney California Adventure Park, Friday, November 15, adding even more merriment to the holiday season at the Disneyland Resort.
Hosted by Olaf the snowman, from the upcoming Walt Disney Pictures animated feature Frozen, the ‘World of Color — Winter Dreams’ show combines new animation with classic winter scenes from such beloved Disney films as Bambi, Fantasia and Toy Story. The show will include new special effects and present some new methods for utilizing the massive ‘stage’ of water, color and light on which ‘World of Color’ is presented.
Steve Davison, creative director of the original ‘World of Color’ show in Disney California Adventure, is also staging ‘World of Color — Winter Dreams.’ Davison, vice president of parades and spectaculars, Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Entertainment, said: ‘I am so excited to be bringing new magic to “World of Color” this holiday season. The brand-new show is filled with great music, new effects and, of course, all the magnificence of the “World of Color” fountain and projection system. It’s going to be a very powerful and amazing experience for guests of all ages.’
Millions of guests have enjoyed ‘World of Color’ since it opened to rave reviews in 2010, part of the five-year expansion of Disney California Adventure. The breathtaking, nighttime spectacular brings animation to life on Paradise Bay, as nearly 1,200 powerful fountains create one of the world’s largest projected water screens.
