Disneyland Must Do – World of Color!

Over the next few weeks, we are going to explore in greater detail some of the incredible things that we want to experience when we visit Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure! There are so many things to check out since this will be our first time visiting the area, if I don’t have a list, and check it twice (and 3, and 4, and 5+ times!) then I’m certain that we will miss some things.

Today I want to talk about the World of Color show that was introduced in June, 2010 during the Summer Nightastic! series of shows, which also included the re-introduction of the Main Street Electrical Parade to the Magic Kingdom, a special fireworks show to replace Wishes, and special enhancements to the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

I’ll never forget the night that the World of Color had a special Celebrity World Premier.  It was such an incredible show because they even streamed it live on the Internet!  Since we are 3 hours later, I remember sitting in front of my computer at nearly midnight, watching this incredible display of lights, water, and music captivate me from the very beginning, and left me wanting to see it over and over again.  Even though I’ve never seen it live in person, I already know that this will be my favorite show at any of the Disney parks when I’m fortunate enough to witness it.

I went out and searched for it, and found this phenomenal video of the World of Color recorded by Inside the Magic.  There are so many great Disney movies featured in this, just take a look at this lineup of Characters or movies from the video:

  1. Ariel
  2. Finding Nemo
  3. Wall-e
  4. Toy Story
  5. Up
  6. Aladdin
  7. Pocahontas
  8. A Bugs Life
  9. Pirates of the Caribbean (this was added to the World of Color in 2011!)
  10. Chernabog (along with Dr. Facilier)
  11. The Lion King
  12. A wonderful song of love, showcasing some of the Disney greats, including Bambi, Dumbo, Tarzan, Lady & The Tramp, The Princess & The Frog, Beauty & The Beast, Snow White, and Cinderella
  13. Tinkerbell
  14. Sorcerer Mickey

The video is over 27 minutes long, but it is worth every second of your time.  I am absolutely certain that Walt Disney looks down on the World of Color — and is pleased.  I know I will be when I am fortunate enough to see it, what about you?
