Disneyland Releases First Look at ‘World of Color – ONE’ Debuting January 27, 2023

World of Color – ONE

As part of The Walt Disney Company’s 100th anniversary in 2023, “World of Color – ONE” will debut at Disneyland on January 27, and Disney has released the first look at this upgraded version of a fan favorite.

About the Show

The story behind “World of Color – ONE,” which takes place at Disney California Adventure, is that it celebrates how a single action, like a drop of water, creates a ripple that can grow into a wave of change.

It only takes one action to make an impact on the people in our lives and the world around us, and it only took one man – Walt Disney – to start the wave that has continued to grow and inspire people around the globe for 100 years.

The nighttime spectacular features songs and stories of some of the most courageous, loving and inspiring characters who dared to be wavemakers and change the world, set to a beautiful musical score comprised of 18 different compositions.

There is also a new, original song called “Start a Wave,” which was written by GRAMMY®-nominated artist Cody Fry and features lead vocals performed by singer-songwriter and actress Loren Allred.


Each musical moment is brought to life by mist screens and 1,200 dancing fountains, combined with creative lighting, projection, laser, fog, and flame effects.

The MagicBand+ will allow Guests to experience another dimension of storytelling, as it will enhance the effects with synchronized dancing lights and vibrations.

“World of Color – ONE,” which was first announced at D23 Expo 2022, is also the first Disneyland Resort nighttime spectacular to feature characters, music and moments from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel, and Star Wars in the same production.

How to Watch

When “World of Color – ONE” debuts, Guests will be able to access viewing areas for the show through a virtual queue system available only via the Disneyland app.

Distribution for the complimentary virtual queue will begin at noon, daily (subject to availability), and will be available for guests who have entered Disney California Adventure for the day, or have entered Disneyland park with a Park Hopper ticket.

On nights when there are multiple showtimes, distribution for additional showtimes will begin immediately after distribution for the first showtime has ended.

If the virtual queue reaches capacity, check in with a cast member at the Paradise Bay viewing area shortly before “World of Color – ONE” begins for walk-up viewing options, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
