Let's look at the newest Disneyland attraction! It premiered a couple of weeks ago, and man I really hope to be able to see this show in person some day. It looks absolutely spectacular. Pictures and info collected from the Disney Parks blog
.World of Color - Disneyland, California
This attraction is a combination of animation, light, and... most of all, nearly 1200 fountains!
Here's a presentation of the different kinds of fountains that make this attraction tick;Butterfly Fountains
This delicate quartet creates a serene effect, fluttering just above the water’s surface. With butterfly-like wings, they deliver smooth, yet stunning patterns – evoking pathos and drama with ballet–like grace.Chaser Fountains
More than 400 Chaser Fountains create lightning-fast effects that “chase” each other in rapid-fire succession. Like the action stars they are, these fountains allow booming beads of water to be projected up to 80 feet high.Dancer Fountains
These six co-stars create swirling dual nozzles that intertwine streams of water. Like a dancing couple from a classic Hollywood musical, their ease and grace create unforgettable moments of choreographed dancing water magic.Dual Water Whip Fountains
Their repertory includes not only vertical patterns but also wider, fan-like designs. In theatre parlance, these 65 fountains can “change costumes” and become the ultimate 19,000 sq ft. water screen cyclorama on Paradise Bay.Flower Spout Fountains
Here are a dozen actors with dramatic range. These fountains can shoot high-velocity streams of big, frothy water and then easily transition the shape of those streams into a “blooming” 60-foot-wide flower petal.Geyser Fountains
With Diva-like attitude they can launch 40 gallons of water at once, announcing their presence with a distinct authority. These 10 fountains live up to their name (and reputation) by being the most powerful; each Geyser can shoot huge bursts of water more than 200 feet into the sky.Grid Fountains
These performers comprise a network of grids that create a vast “ensemble cast.” Positioned eight-feet apart, these vertical fountains are capable of firing water up to 40 feet in the air. Their specialty is creating massive, three-dimensional designs, like a whale moving through the Paradise Bay.Single Water Whip Fountains
Our 75 star ballerinas are the most elegant and graceful featured in World of Color and perform a mesmerizing ballet. With independently moving heads that can sway in any direction and project water more than 100 feet in a vertical pattern.
The attraction comes with it's own line of souvenirs and snacks, including awesome cherry, blueberry, and plum flavoured popcorn!
