Out of the Loop: ‘World of Color − Winter Dreams’ to debut this November at Disney California Adventure

by Banks Lee


A new version of the popular “World of Color” show at Disney California Adventure is set to debut Nov. 15, bringing the magic of the holidays to life.

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 Disney films as “Bambi,” “Fantasia” and “Toy Story.” The show will include new special effects and will include some new methods for utilizing the massive stage of water, color and light on which “World of Color” is presented.

Steve Davison, the 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 at Walt Disney Imagineering, 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.”

Along with the new “World of Color − Winter Dreams,” the season will welcome the return of “A Christmas Fantasy” parade, Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle, “it’s a small world” Holiday and “Believe…in Holiday Magic” fireworks followed by snowfall on Main Street, U.S.A., New Orleans Square and “it’s a small world” mall. Disney California Adventure gets its own seasonal makeover with festive holiday decor in Cars Land, “a bug’s land,” Paradise Pier and Buena Vista Street.
