Ride: World of Color

Think the logo's pretty? Wait till you see the show.

"Every child is blessed with a vivid imagination."

World of Color is a water "nighttime spectacular" running at Disney California Adventure, in which "dancing" fountains (plus lasers and fire spouts!) perform to iconic Disney Animated Canon and Pixar sequences (such as the "speaking whale" scene from Finding Nemo). Think of it as Las Vegas' Fountains of Bellagio meets Fantasia in a good ol' Disney Acid Sequence.

Business-wise, it could possibly be billed as the "main attraction" of California Adventure's billion-dollar makeover. The show is designed in such a way that sequences can be changed out and fountains reprogrammed fairly easily, with the football field-sized fountain platform only needing general routine maintenance. Also notable for prominently featuring the mist screen technology that started with its Long Runner predecessor Fantasmic!

The title, opening sequence, and theme song are a tribute to Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color (a.k.a. Walt Disney Presents), though that is about as far as the homages go. For 2015, a new incarnation of the show focused on Walt Disney, Disneyland and work from Disney's early years subtitled Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney is set to debut for Disneyland's 60th anniversary celebration starting in May.

You can listen to the theme, and watch someone's camcorder footage of the live show on YouTube.
