Disney California Adventure Park will offer a brand-new version of its “World of Color” nighttime spectacular as part of the Christmas holiday season at Disneyland Resort, announced Disney Parks Blog on July 25.
“World of Color – Winter Dreams” will feature winter scenes from iconic Disney films, such as “Bambi,” Fantasia” and “Toy Story.” Olaf the snowman, a character from Walt Disney Pictures’ upcoming animated movie “Frozen,” will host the holiday show.
“Winter Dreams” also will offer new animation and special effects – including new ways of using the water stage and fountains, colors and lights, fire and projection system that all combine to make “World of Color” the signature night show for Disney California Adventure (DCA).
Disney Parks Blog released a video of “World of Color – Winter Dreams” to offer fans a sneak peak with elements of the holiday show.
Steve Davison, creative director of the original “World of Color” show in Disney California Adventure, also is responsible for “World of Color − Winter Dreams.” Davison, vice president of parades and spectaculars, Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Entertainment, is well-known to Disney fans. His Disneyland work includes various parades and fireworks shows and such seasonal offerings as “it’s a small world” Holiday and Haunted Mansion Holiday.
In his media statement for “Winter Dreams,” Davison 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.”
“World of Color – Winter Dreams” will debut at DCA on Nov. 15 for the resort’s Christmas holiday season. DCA’s other seasonal touches include holiday décor in Cars Land, “a bug’s land,” Paradise Pier and Buena Vista Street.
