World of Color or Fantasmic?
If I had to choose, which one would be a better choice to see in Anaheim?
I have seen the Disney Hollywood Studios version of Fantasmic.

While the Anaheim version of Fantasmic is better than the Florida version, and well worth seeing even if you've seen the one at Disney World, if you had time for only one night-time show at the Disneyland Resort, I'd opt for World of Color in your case.
But I would try to see if the timing might work to see both. Sometimes it does, if WoC is running three shows.
Although both are wonderful shows (and you really should see both if at all possible), my vote goes to World of Color. Fantasmic is a great story with awesome effects, but moments in World of Color made me cry. There is something spectacular about the water, colors, and scenes chosen that touches you. And since there isn't really a story (more of a montage), anyone of any age can enjoy it at their own level. In my opinion, WoC alone is worth the upgrade to a park hopper (even if the rest of the park leaves something to be desired until the redo is completed).

I'd say world of color and I'm a DCA fan....there are times when I (gulp) prefer it to......
Are you going to be there for only one night? Otherwise, I would see both (in fact, with the right timing, and park hopper tickets, you might be able to see both in one night). The Disneyland version of Fantasmic! is considerably better than the one at DHS.
*I* would choose Fantasmic. However, I'm a Fantasmic fanatic. I could go on for pages on why WoC has such potential but hasn't fixed its flaws yet. But since you've seen the FL Fan, as much as it pains me to say it's close enough [which it's not!] I say go see WoC. But if there's ANY way you can see both, DO IT.
World of Color! I saw both last September and while I really like Fantasmic (Florida better because you can sit) I had chills watching World of Color -- an The show features more recent films -- the Pirates part was great... Don't miss it!
Yeah, OK. I'll be the odd one out. I'd say definately Fantasmic if - and that's a BIG if - you only get to see one. Fantasmic is one of my favorite things to do in either park.
World of Color
I have seen both Fantasmics....They are similar enough!
Still, if you can, I would catch both!
