  • Future of "World of Color"?

    Wasn't sure if anyone else saw this. Looks like Las Vegas Belliago-type fountains. I don't think this was in Vegas BTW. And they use a movie projector during certain times of the show. I thought it may be a glimpse of what to expect. There are a couple things they do in the video that opened up more possibilites for me in my head. But the way the "water screen" is done could be annyoing with the constant water spray...

    Wow, that's pretty cool. Go Faith! LOL

    Btw, that is indeed Bellagio.

    My only fear after watching that video isn't getting annoyed by the spray so much as it is getting tired of hearing the fountains' "kaboom" sound so often. I hope Disney finds a way to either mask this .

      Those sounds are awesome.

      Does the sound of exploding fireworks bother you during Remember?

          The sounds during the projections are loud and distracting because the presentation drags, I was looking for anything to keep me entertained. Disney can definitely step it up a notch with extremely entertaining projections and the fountain blasts will not be as noticeable.

          The water show itself is incredible and visually stunning!

            It would probaly be masked pretty well by (most likely) louder music. Because there are other sounds than just that show on the strip, so I think that with more advanced water effects and more control on the surrounding sounds, it seems that it will at least be masked better

            It seems so cool! It would be better to with disney stuff,YEAH im so exited!

            I've got an idea for the intro and parts in between.(just imagine this as the intro and right after Walt says "with a cast of colorful charecters" they cut it and make it the intro to the whole show) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http:...?v=_4WfP-foY6s

            and then this could act as the intro and parts in between(like how "wishes" is in between the segments of the different lands in the "remember" fireworks)
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http:...?v=M5jvWuIiGsc

            I think that would be awsome(i have it all like planned out in my head what it's gonna be like) so it starts out with the theme song and the mist screens show scenes from Classic Disney films until the intro ends and it goes to the anouncer guy who says "and now, Walt Disney" then they show that footage used for the Alice in Wonderland preview episode and edit it up a bit to present the show, after that tink comes out and uses her magic wand to go to the next scene(the next scenes are clips from several Disney films in a creative way with the beautiful water effects) the end i guess-savy so far?

              But also, in the Bellagio vid, the lady is talking about time...the water cannons are shooting in "time"...tick, tock, tick, tock.

              I would love to see anything like this in DCA!

                See Beamway's quote below. (Btw, the booming of fireworks are part of the love of the show, so to me there's a difference.)

                Thank you! That's exactly what I meant.

                Yeah, that's what I meant by "masking" the noise. I'm not totally worried about it, but I just figured I'd mention what I was thinking.

                  I personally would like Disney to be a bit more innovative with "World of Color" and not similar to the Bellagio show, and that particular video up there seemed way too similar to what they have been doing on Fantasmic! for years...

                    I agree. The technology here was great, but the storyline was dumb. There was very little entertainment value here once you got beyond the water technology.

                    I have no doubt Steve Davison's creativity and Disney's fat pocketbook will create a DCA show that is amazing. In comparison, DCA's new show should make this Bellagio thing look like a 1970's Dancing Waters show without a plot. Which is pretty much what Bellagio has, except on a much bigger scale.

                      Water/Fountain shows are neat, and all the fancy nozzles and
                      and projections will look cool, BUT keep in mind that the Belagio
                      uses differents songs, with different water fountain choreography.
                      Another interesting fountain (although extremely small, comparred
                      to the Belagio) is at The Grove ~ it also offers a variety of different
                      shows. One major concern I have about this new show in PP,
                      is that it will have only one show, rather than a variety of different
                      shows. Although the DCA show will include a variety of songs, I
                      have serious doubts that a show with much more limited resources,
                      (compared to Fantastmic) Will get old real quick, and that the
                      repeat viewing of the same exact show will become old MUCH quicker
                      and won't sustain a crowds that DCA is trying to attract.
                      Critter Country's a mess ev'r since the Country Bears were kicked out. Ya can't cover pooh with honey and 'spect people ta like it.

                        Then why not just change the show? They could have a Christmas version, a Halloween version, an Americana version, etc.

                        Once the infrastructure is installed, the viewing area is built, and the system is familiar..... change the show. It's not like there are actors to rehearse or technicicians to train or boat drivers to practice. Just reprogram a new show every once in awhile. Just get Mr. Davison and his core staff in for a week of programming at their computer screens, some music editing, a few nice catered lunches, and you've got another show.

                        Even the title "Disney's World of Color" can be used as a lead title, with the various seasonal or thematic subtitles tacked on to the end. Disney's World of Color - Holiday! or Disney's World of Color - HalloweenTime! or Disney's World of Color - USA!

                          They could do that, BUT in all the press releases and in all
                          the talks about "World of Color" this has not been mentioned
                          at all. And we all know how seldom any show at DL is every
                          changed, even including holiday overlays ~ it is a very rare
                          occurance.

                          Just a water show, with NO variation from one show to the next
                          will mean VERY FEW repeat viewings ~ and of course, DL is
                          heavily dependent upon locals/AP'ers who come to view shows
                          repeat shows.

                          World of Color will initially have JUST ONE SHOW when it opens.
                          However Belagio opened their fountains with several different
                          shows. That keeps people coming back and/or staying for longer
                          periods of time. THAT ain't gonna happen for DCA's fountain show
                          when it opens. You will get the initial crowds to view the show,
                          but then the repeat viewers is gonna drop dramatically ~

                          BUT if they opened the DCA fountains with several different shows ~
                          THEN they would sustain crowds for a longer period of time, and
                          encourage numerous viewings. I'm NOT talking about just a Christmas
                          Show and Summer Show, either. I'm not even suggesting a different
                          show depending upon what month it is. They would need a several
                          different shows, that could change from night to night (That's something
                          that should be possible. ) or if they have the show a couple times a night
                          each show should be different ~ just as they vary the show at the Belagio.

                          What is Critical is that they have a variety of shows that they can cycle
                          through, from one show to the next. People are already used to the variety
                          of shows when it comes to water fountains ~ and if Disney Doesn't offer a
                          bigger better show (with the size of the fountains, the proximity of the people
                          to the fountains at PP, this could very well be possible) BUT people will also
                          expect a variety of shows with Water Fountains, and if DCA doesn't deliver
                          on this, it is a set up for dissapointing guests rather quickly.

                          The water show at the DL hotel just could not sustain crowds, and without a
                          Revolving showcase of shows for the DCA fountain show, It won't be long before
                          the draw factor will be negligable.

                            Exactly what I as thinking. The video had a certain futuristic "industrial" feel to it and I felt the rhythmic sound of the fountains actually added to the ambiance of the video.

                              Who says that World of Color won't have repeatability? Fantasmic has had "just one show" for over 10 years now, and people STILL camp out 2-3 hours beforehand.

                              As an attraction, all it has to do is be a hit. If it's a hit, then locals will see it time and again, making it a favorite and a must see. Out-of-towners will flock to it regardless.

                              All that being said... I really wish they'd kept the "Wonderful World of Color". That really harkens back to the old shows, and could tie the theme song in at the beginning.
                              I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.

                                The constant pumping noise required in order to get the water screen kinda got annoying, but it was really really cool

                                  I'm actually starting to like just "World of Color". Just like TP2000 mentioned, it's a start and easier title to add on to if Disney wants to do seasonal shows. I'm also sure regular guests would refer to this as "World of Color" than having to add "Wonderful" in the title anyways.

                                  Aladdin, I was also interested if Disney was going to do multiple daytime shows as well. During the daytime, they could do like 1 show every hour to one song. They should definately do one for "Candle on the Water". And the daytime version would only have the fountains. No (perhaps in the nightime) fire blasts, pyro spraklers, movie projections, lasers, smoke/mist, colored fountains, etc.

                                  THEN AGAIN, if guests see the fountains at night for the very first time compared to seeing the fountains before in the daytime, they may be more impressed.

                                    That is what I was wondering. Remember hasn't had any changes and either has Fantasmic!. Why would World of Color be any different?

                                    In regards to the Bellagio show, I can picture Disney doing something very similar, but with much more color, effect, and an original score. Disney's will be much more artistic than Bellagio's. The Bellagio show is beautiful, but it is mainly just an impressive fountain system with white lights and artist songs that serve as a foreground for the hotel. I don't mean to reduce to it though.

                                    World of Color will most likely use the same system that WET Design used for Bellagio. If you look at that DCA refurb map, you can see the same infrastructure outline that is at Bellagio. All the descriptions of the show so far make sound that it will utilize the "Super-Shooters" that shoot the water some 200 feet into the air. It will be without a doubt an amazing sight to see against the backdrop of Paradise Pier. That and a score blasting over a massive sound system will make me want to see the show more than once.

                                    And what was that projection show at Bellagio? I have never seen that. It looks amazing, but it sort of cheapens the hotel with its advertisement.

                                      Indeed, they are taking inspiration for the Bellagio show!, Imagineers and those responsible for Disneyland's Entertainment have been to Vegas studying the water fountian's and are working with one of the show's producers of Bellagio to bring World of Color to life at DCA when it opens. I believe that it will be breathtaking, sorta fantasmicish, (without the live performers) The score of the show will just be awesome, i do hope Bruce Healey will be on board to do the soundtrack. Also Steven Davidson who's credits include, Remember Dreams Come True, Haunted Mansion Holiday, Eureka, Believe, Wishes, and Light Magic is part of the creative team who is working on this show. In all it will awesome there's no doubt about that. It will have guests wanting to see the show over and over again and hopefully give guests a reason to stay in DCA late in the summer nights.
