15 Stunning Instagrams from Disneyland’s World of Color Show

The spectacular, all-new “World of Color-Winter Dreams” light and water show erupts in spouts and sprays and magical wintery animation at Disney California Adventure‘s Paradise Bay this holiday season. Olaf the snowman from Walt Disney Pictures’ Frozen hosts.

The breathtaking nighttime color and water extravaganza includes nearly 1200 fountains (!) which work to create one of the world’s largest projected water screens. This new holiday show brings an ultra high-definition projection system to the mix, presenting a sharper version with four times the resolution than the system used in the award-winning classic “World of Color” shows.

The structure of the California Screamin’ roller coaster is now lined with nearly 700 high-power LED strobe lights. Six “snow generators” create giant, floating snowflakes in six different designs.

Broadway stars Heather Headley, Josh Gad and Idina Menzel lend their talent to the soundtrack and a choir including voices from all 50 United States opens the show.

The journey continues through classic Disney winter-themed animation and a version of the lantern ascension scene from the film Tangled, plus a delightfully wacky version of “The Nutcracker” performed by the aliens from Toy Story.

Olaf leads the audience in a sing-along of holiday favorites, “Jingle Bells,” “Dreidel Song” and “Feliz Navidad.”
