Anaheim, CA, USA — “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, Nov. 15, adding 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 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.
Along with the new “World of Color − Winter Dreams,” the holiday season will welcome the return of Disneyland Park holiday traditions such as “A Christmas Fantasy” parade, Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle, “it’s a small world” Holiday and “Believe…in Holiday Magic” fireworks followed by a holiday snowfall on Main Street, U.S.A., New Orleans Square and “it’s a small world” mall. Santa Claus will appear in the parade throughout the season and also will be greeting guests and listening to holiday wishes through Dec. 24.
Disney California Adventure gets its own seasonal makeover with festive – and often whimsical – holiday décor in Cars Land, “a bug’s land,” Paradise Pier and Buena Vista Street.
Disneyland Resort hotels will join in the holiday festivities with twinkling lights and ornaments, special entertainment and holiday dining with themed menus.
