World of Color Sounds Out of This World

More details have begun to emerge on the spectacular looking World of Color show for Disney’s California Adventure. Brady MacDonald over at the LA Times Travel Blog has more:

Disney officials proudly proclaim that the upcoming World of Color water show at Disney’s California Adventure will far surpass Disneyland’s Fantasmic and Epcot’s Illuminations in magnitude, creativity and technical wizardry.

We’ll find out if the Anaheim theme park can back up the boasts starting in spring 2010.

Highlights of the 25-minute nighttime spectacle include:

  • A 1-acre underwater superstructure larger than a football field
  • Laser, fog and fire special effects
  • 1,200 programmable fountains capable of reaching heights of 200 feet
  • Individual fountain controls for lighting, color intensity and water angle
  • Water mist screens stretching 50 feet high by 380 feet wide
  • Animated clips from “Alice in Wonderland,” “The Lion King,” “Pocahontas,” “Toy Story” and “Wall-E”

World of Color, which blends the nighttime spectacle of Fantasmic and the Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas, is the first major addition of a $1.1-billion makeover planned for Disney’s California Adventure through 2012.

Also, the guys from the OC Register’s Around Disney blog have obtained concept art from the Wall-E scene, which looks to be a new addition to the line-up.
