Discover a powerful tapestry of color, magic and imagination in this outdoor show.
As unforgettable scenes from beloved Disney and Disney•Pixar animated and live-action films stream across an immense water “screen,” you’ll be inspired to reminisce about romances, look back at past friendships and relive remarkable situations.
The World of Color show―the most impressive and fanciful nighttime extravaganza Disney has ever produced―is accompanied by momentous music as well as stunning fire, fountain, fog and laser effects.
World of Color Is Big!
To create the approximately 19,000 square-foot projection screen, nearly 1,200 fountains shoot water 200 feet into the air. Watch the water dance and the perfectly timed pyrotechnics explode!
As the show’s extraordinary elements are woven into a kaleidoscope of imagination, the spectacle sweeps and expands across Paradise Bay, while the astonishing soundtrack lifts your spirits, spanning decades of Disney movies―from the classics to the most recent releases.
Don’t miss this truly Disney nighttime experience!
On July 4, 2017, enjoy a special patriotic salute before the start of each of the evening’s World of Color shows.
Beacons of red, white and blue illuminate sky-high fountains dotting Paradise Bay while a chorus of voices sings a moving tribute to our great land. Marvel as a montage of monuments shines across the towering mist screen. A finale of fireworks caps off the celebration just moments before World of Color begins.
