World of Color - Celebrate!

Login to Create an Itinerary
Type
Water, lights, lasers and fire ignite in this one-of-a-kind and touching entertainment spectacular that is a tribute to Walt Disney and his dream for Disneyland.
Special Considerations
It is important to note that due to the close proximity of many of the water effects, it is very likely that guests along the waters edge may get wet, occasionally even soaked. Most of the early issues with rouge fountains have been resolved, but be aware that you may get wet. Store cameras and other technology accordingly for the show. This warning is especially true on windy days.
Description
A water, light, laser and fire spectacular like no other. Celebrate Walt Disney and Disneyland's 60th anniversary with this special show. Led by Neil Patrick Harris and Mickey Mouse, the 20 minute show features Walt's life, his dream, vision, and the history of Disney - including the famous Disneyland Resort.

Fastpass Overview
"Fastpass" aka "Showpass" tickets are required to view the Word of Color show. Unlike most other shows, guests cannot simply walk up at show time and view this spectacular from normal viewing areas. At park opening signage is presented around the park directing you to the Grizzly River Run Fastpass distribution area. Here one member of your party can collect all the tickets from everyone and enter the queue to get a ticket for the show. Fastpasses are handed out only one show at a time. So you will not be able to get tickets for the 2nd or 3rd showing until after the previous shows are out of Fastpasses. This is an automated system so there is no way for Cast Members to provide you a later ticket, even if you ask politely. Your Fastpass ticket will include the showtime, return time and a viewing area. The Paradise Park area is separated into various viewing areas for showtime, and based on your ticket you will be directed to a specific location. Guests can also get a Fast Pass for the "preferred viewing" area if they participate in one of the World of Color Dining Packages. This area is the most central and closest to the show. You can arrive right before show time and still get a pretty good spot! There is a Standby Viewing area across the walkway in Paradise Pier directly in front of Ariel's Undersea Adventure, as noted behind the rope. You can see parts of the show here but you will be blocked by passers by and those down in the Paradise Park area. Another standby viewing area is over on the bridge to Paradise Pier by Ariel's Grotto. This tends to fill up quickly.
Fastpass Entrance
The Fast Pass machines are located by Grizzly River Run, across from the Grand Californian. You'll want to get there at park opening to get tickets for the first show and the best viewing area.

World of color is an amazing show of water, color, and disney memories. Fast passes are a must though. Once you enter the park in the morning head over to grizzly river run. That is where they give out fast passes. Make time for this amazing experience. Oh and bring something to wear...you might get wet!

This show is amazing must take kids to see the colors are not only beautiful but magical. Shows the classic Walt Disney and Pixar's favorite movies from Disney Princesses to Tron Legacy. One night you will remember for ever. Water that goes higher than the ferris wheel and lasers and lights. Also fire, the show is amazing and wonderful Disney has done it again.

Fantastic show, but buyer beware! This is a STANDING ROOM ONLY show. You even stand up at least an hour before the show starts. There is no seating. If you purchase tickets with the "picnic lunch" offered on the Disneyland site, its a waste. You really won't have time to eat it, you're standing, and the meal is cold.

Honestly one of the best light shows I'd ever seen. Never seen anything that magical. The ambience feels like you're in a movie. I recommend people to get a WOC dinning package, totally worth it. You get premium seating! Warning: if you get front row seating YOU WILL GET WET! Lol have fun guys
