“World of Color is a nighttime show at Disney California Adventure, part of the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. Conceived by Vice President of Parades and Spectaculars, Steve Davison, and designed by Walt Disney Creative Entertainment, the show has nearly 1,200 musical water fountains and includes lights, fire, lasers, and fog, with high-definition projections on mist screens. The show is inspired by Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color anthology television series, as evidenced by the use of its eponymous theme song written by the Sherman Brothers.

The process of assembling, installing, and testing the show’s numerous components and equipment in Paradise Bay spanned a period of approximately 15 months. The original version of World of Color premiered on June 11, 2010, as part of the “Summer Nightastic!” promotional campaign. The entire show cost $75 million to design, manufacture and build.

The show transpires at the lagoon of Paradise Bay at Paradise Pier, while the audience watches the performance at the Paradise Lagoon Amphitheater area in front of The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Undersea Adventure attraction. Other nearby attractions such Mickey’s Fun Wheel and California Screamin’ become part of the performance as they undergo various forms of lighting and projections throughout the show. The effects utilized in World of Color (water fountains, mist screens, fire, lasers, lighting, and fog) are choreographed to work in synchronicity with the featured music and image projections.
