We’re just over a month away from a massive refresh in the Disneyland Resort nighttime entertainment lineup, with two new spectaculars headed to both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure! Now, the resort has released the performance schedule for the debuts of both “Wondrous Journeys” and “World of Color — One,” which both kick off January 27!
Over at Disneyland Park, the new nighttime spectacular “Wondrous Journeys” will perform at 9:30p.m. on both January 27 and 28.
“Wondrous Journeys” is replacing “Disneyland Forever,” which has been performing on and off since 2015 when it debuted for the resort’s 60th anniversary. Its most recent run began on April 22, 2022, alongside the return of the Main Street Electrical Parade. Both the parade and Disneyland Forever ended on September 1, 2022. The park switched to Halloween Screams for the fall and is currently performing Believe… in Holiday Magic for the season.
Wondrous Journeys is described as a “nighttime spectacular that will ignite the wonder in all of us. It will feature nods to every Walt Disney Animation Studios film to date, taking us on a journey filled with artistry, music, storytelling, and heart. It will continue to build upon the park’s state-of-the-art projection effects, turning Main Street, U.S.A., Sleeping Beauty Castle, the façade of “it’s a small world” and the Rivers of America into an artist’s canvas that brings characters to life all around you. On select nights, Wondrous Journeys will go even bigger with the addition of sparkling fireworks in the sky above Disneyland.” Rumor has it, Baymax will also soar above Disneyland Park!
Meanwhile at Disney California Adventure, the new “World of Color — One” will perform twice nightly on January 27 and 28, at 9:00p.m. and 10:15p.m.
“World of Color – One” at Disney California Adventure park will celebrate the storytelling legacy started by Walt Disney a century ago. It will tell a new story of how a single action, like a drop of water, creates a ripple that can grow into a wave of change. It brings some of the most courageous, loving and inspiring characters to life in new ways. The show will also feature a new original song, “Start a Wave.”
Other Disney 100 Years of Wonder celebrations at Disneyland Resort include special decorations and fountains at Sleeping Beauty Castle, new costumes for Mickey and Minnie, 100th anniversary nametags for the Cast Members, and more. There will also be a popcorn bucket and plenty of merchandise, some of which is already out! It has also been announced that the Magic Happens parade will return in February 2023 as part of the celebrations.
