Disneyland Details ‘World of Color’ FASTPASS, Merchandise and Dining Opportunities

With anticipation and excitement building for the June 11 premiere of the nighttime spectacular “World of Color” in Disney’s California Adventure park, several options are in place for guests who want to maximize their day of fun at the park and make plans to enjoy the show that night.

“World of Color” will be presented twice nightly throughout the Disneyland Resort “Summer Nightastic!” season, June 11 through Aug. 29 (except June 16-17 when Disney’s California Adventure will be closed for Grad Nights).  Guests will stand during the shows – at 9 and 10:15 p.m. – and they may bring strollers into the viewing area.

To see the show, guests will obtain a special FASTPASS for “World of Color” or they can select from several Dining and Picnic packages that include reserved viewing.

The FASTPASS for “World of Color” will be available each morning at the Grizzly River Run FASTPASS terminals.  Guests can insert their park tickets into the terminal to obtain a FASTPASS ticket for the show, and they will be assigned a specific show time.  As with other FASTPASS attractions, a limited number of passes are available for “World of Color.”  When all of the day’s “World of Color” FASTPASS allotment has been distributed, Grizzly River Run terminals will convert back to distributing the Grizzly River Run FASTPASS tickets.

Guests arriving before park opening to line up for the “World of Color” FASTPASS may park in the Pumba parking lot on Disney Way and, beginning at 7 a.m., gather at the Main Entrance to Disney’s California Adventure.  When Disney’s California Adventure opens to the public, guests lined up for FASTPASS will be walked into the park and over to the FASTPASS terminals.

In addition to the FASTPASS for “World of Color,” a selection of specially themed dining package options, which include reserved viewing, are available.
