World of Color

Get answers to common questions regarding the World of Color nighttime spectacular show at Disney California Adventure Park.

World of Color is an outdoor, 28-minute nighttime spectacular show in Disney California Adventure Park that features memorable Disney and Disney•Pixar film moments projected on an immense water screen, plus fantastic fire, fountain, fog and laser effects—all set to a soaring soundtrack.

World of Color takes place outdoors on Paradise Bay in Disney California Adventure Park at the Disneyland Resort.

The World of Color show lasts approximately 28 minutes. Find showtimes on the online calendar, or check the Entertainment Times Guide when you arrive at the Disneyland Resort.

Fun Wheel Challenge, an interactive matching game played on a personal Wi-Fi enabled mobile device, allows Guests— waiting for the World of Color show to start—to compete against each other for the chance to control the colors on Mickey's Fun Wheel.

No app or download is required to play!

Set-Up:

  • Enter the World of Color viewing area.
  • Open a browser on your personal mobile device.
  • Connect to the wireless network, PierGames. This special Wi-Fi network is available in the World of Color viewing area 45 minutes before the start of the first World of Color show each evening.

Play:

  • Mickey's Fun Wheel becomes a giant game board, as it changes colors in a specific pattern.
  • Test your memory and repeat the color sequences on your mobile device.
  • If you win the game, you can—from your device—control the lights on Mickey's Fun Wheel for 30 seconds.

World of Color is designed for the entire family. However, it does contain fire, strobe effects, lasers, loud noises and rapidly changing scenes of light and dark.

Guests may choose where to stand, based on availability. Guests standing closer to the water's edge are most likely to get wet. However, due to the nature of the show and the height of the fountains, other Guests may also get wet. Look for signs in the viewing area that indicate wetter areas.
