Is Disney California Adventure getting a new holiday World of Color show?

September 8, 2016, 8:45 AM · It appears that World of Color - Celebrate isn't the only World of Color show at Disney California Adventure that will be "glowing away" this year.

Theme Park Insider writer Matthew Gottula is reporting on Twitter that the Disneyland Resort will be replacing its World of Color - Winter Dreams shows this November with a new holiday-themed version of the night-time spectacular.

Other fans are backing up that report with photos of something new being tested after hours on the Paradise Bay lagoon.

Disney premiered World of Color - Winter Dreams in November 2013 — the first of what Disney promised would be several variations on the original World of Color concept. Winter Dreams was significant in Disney theme park history because it offered the first public performance of what's now become the one de rigueur song in all Disney "greatest hits" shows these days — Frozen's "Let it Go."

There's no official word from Disney on this as of yet.

Not saying that it still wouldn't be expensive to produce, but come's Disney. They have everything needed to pull such a thing off.

September 8, 2016 at 5:04 PM · Considering Disneyland already has Winter Dreams listed under their holiday offerings, I wonder if this is truly a new show or is instead a revised version of Winter Dreams with some new segments. I'm more inclined to think the latter since they've played with their holiday show every year, but I definitely wouldn't mind the former as I've always thought Winter Dreams was the weakest version of World of Color.
