A truly fantastic show

This show is absolutely breathtaking. Disney production is at it's best here and you have to see it in person to really appreciate the scale and spectacle of it. I come from the live events industry so it takes a lot for me to truly go wow, but this show managed it multiple times.

We were stood fairly central but with a good crowd of people in front of us but our view was still great. The day we watched there was a huge queue to get into our section and people were getting in position quite early in the day so keep and eye out to ensure you don't miss a chance to see this fantastic show.

What do you get when you combine hundreds of dancing water jets, water video screens, and fire? You get a show unlike anything else ever created, World of Color. See your favorite Disney stories told in a whole new way during this mesmerizing show. I have seen this show multiple times, and it takes my breathe away each time.

This show has fastpasses that are distributed by Grizzly River Run, and I highly recommend getting one. This allows you to get right on the water. Doing this, you may get wet, but seeing this show with no obstructions makes it all worth it. You will never regret seeing it, but you might regret it if you don't.
