World of Color – ONE Description
“World of Color – ONE” celebrates how a single action, like a drop of water, creates a ripple that can grow into a wave of change. You’ll discover how it only takes one action to make an impact on the people in our lives and the world around us, just as one man – Walt Disney – started the wave that has continued to grow and inspire people around the globe for 100 years.

Throughout World of Color – ONE there will be songs and stories from a wide array of some of Disney’s “most courageous, loving and inspiring characters who dared to be wavemakers and change the world.” This will be from across the wide spectrum of stories in the Disney library. In fact, it will be the first time that a Disneyland Resort nighttime spectacular will feature characters, music, and moments from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, the Avengers, and Star Wars in the same production. This will include moments from films like The Lion King, Moana, Coco, Mulan, Soul, and others. All of these moments will be projected on the massive World of Color water screen that can span as wide as 360 feet.
Water isn’t just a metaphor in World of Color – ONE, it also is a star as it transforms Paradise Bay during the show. The moments throughout the show will be brought to life by mist screens and 1,200 dancing fountains along with lighting, laser, fog, and flame effects. The show will also interact with MagicBand+ to add an extra dimension of storytelling to the production with both dancing lights and haptics.
World of Color – One promises to end a night at the Disneyland Resort on a high note. Its finale will highlight how when people come together and combine efforts, “many drops can become an ocean.” Disney hopes to inspire people to start a ripple of their own and “be the one to make a wave for the future.”
World of Color – ONE Virtual Queue
When World of Color – ONE arrives at the Disneyland Resort in Disney California Adventure on January 27, 2023, there will be a virtual queue utilized for guests wishing to experience this show. The virtual queue will be available only with the Disneyland App. The virtual queue will open daily at noon (subject to availability) and will be available to any guest who has entered Disney California Adventure for the day or Disneyland with a Park Hopper ticket or Magic Key. For nights when there is more than one presentation of World of Color – ONE, distribution for additional showtimes will begin as soon as the distribution for the first show ends.
For those who obtain a virtual queue selection, enter the designated viewing area during the designated show time at one of the two entry points approximately 30-45 minutes before the show begins. There is a Blue entrance and a Yellow entrance. For more details on how to utilize the virtual queue system, visit Disneyland.com. If the virtual queue does reach capacity, speak kindly with a cast member at the Paradise Bay viewing area shortly before World of Color – ONE begins to ask about walk-up viewing options.
