I don't have a whole lot to say about World of Color. I mean, I liked it, but like all big Disney shows, the hassle of the waiting and the crowds and the little punk kids elbowing you in the ribs does detract from the experience somewhat. (Grumpy? Me? Never.)
All the hassle afforded us a great viewing spot, though, and the visuals were stunning, so it's definitely something you'll want to see at least once.
WoC makes heavy use of water screens, like this:
If you've seen Fantasmic at either park, then you're already familiar with this technology. Many of the projections aren't as clear as this one, though; sometimes I couldn't tell which movie clip was being shown.
Unlike Fantasmic, there's no over-arching storyline with WoC; just a montage of song and movie clips.
A definite advantage over Fantasmic, though, is that these water screens give you a more panoramic view:
One of my favorite clips: a scene from UP. Seeing all the balloons go by was a real breath-taker.
And this one draws you in with almost 3D intensity:
In addition to the water screens, there are flame spurts...
And pop up mini-screens, which are mixed in among the fountains:
Those light fountains were by far my favorite part. Disney could have left everything else out, and I'd be happy as a clam. I mean, just look at these!
You think John could install some of these in our back yard? :)
This was actually the final scene:
I couldn't quite focus on the "World of Color" text. Who knew lasers on mist would be so hard to capture? Heh.
Ok, one last shot of those awesome fountains:
