A World of Ways to Enjoy ‘World of Color’

Filed in: Disney California Adventure


Anaheim, Calif. (June 7, 2010) – With anticipation and excitement building for the June 11 premiere of the nighttime spectacular “World of Color” in Disney California Adventure park, several options are in place for guests who want to maximize their day of fun at the park and make plans to enjoy the show that night. 

For primary viewing of the show in Paradise Park, guests will need to obtain a special FASTPASS for “World of Color” or they can select from several Dinner and Picnic packages that include reserved viewing. Guests will also enjoy alternative viewing from locations around Paradise Bay. 

A new immersive “Summer Nightastic!” party, “Glow Fest,” will bring added evening excitement for Disney California Adventure guests of all ages. ”Glow Fest” will be filled with dancing, music and fun, highlighted by special color, sound and light effects, starting in the Sun Plaza at 6 p.m. nightly and continuing in Hollywood Pictures Backlot until park closing. 

“World of Color” will be presented twice nightly throughout the Disneyland Resort “Summer Nightastic!” season, June 11 through Aug. 29 (except June 16-17 when Disney California Adventure will be closed for Grad Nights). Guests will stand during the 25-minute shows – at 9 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. – and they may bring strollers into the reserved viewing area. 

FASTPASS for “World of Color”
  • The FASTPASS for “World of Color” will be available each morning at the Grizzly River Run FASTPASS terminals. Guests can insert their park tickets into the terminal to obtain a FASTPASS ticket for the show, and they will be assigned a specific show time. As with other FASTPASS attractions, a limited number of passes are available for “World of Color.” When all of the day’s “World of Color” FASTPASS allotment has been distributed, Grizzly River Run terminals will convert back to distributing the Grizzly River Run FASTPASS tickets.
  • Guests arriving before park opening to line up for the “World of Color” FASTPASS may enter the Esplanade at 7 a.m. and gather at the Main Entrance to Disney California Adventure. When Disney California Adventure opens to the public, guests lined up for FASTPASS will be walked into the park and over to the FASTPASS terminals.


In addition to the FASTPASS for “World of Color,” a selection of specially-themed dinner package options, which include reserved viewing, are available.
