ANAHEIM, Calif. (Feb. 23, 2015) – On Sunday night, award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris hosted The Oscars® on ABC. So, where will his next big hosting gig take place? The Disneyland Resort!
Harris will be joining Mickey Mouse as host of the all-new “World of Color – Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney,” opening May 22 at Disney California Adventure park as part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. Harris, a fan of Disney Parks, will bring his unique style of humor and charm to this special edition of the popular “World of Color” show.
“World of Color – Celebrate!” illuminates the night in a celebration of the unparalleled imagination of Walt Disney. Mickey Mouse and Harris will take guests on a fun-filled and inspirational journey, exploring Walt Disney’s decades-long legacy of memorable animated moments and his dream of Disneyland park, all culminating in a madcap musical tour of Disneyland Resort attractions as never seen before.
Since its premiere in 2010, “World of Color” has amazed millions of Disney California Adventure park guests using a groundbreaking “stage” of nearly 1 full acre of engineered superstructure, longer than a football field. Nearly 1,200 programmable fountains and a vast underwater grid with more than 20,000 points of control send water to heights of up to 200 feet; shooting higher than Mickey’s Fun Wheel. The show employs nearly 30 high-definition projectors to take the audience on a journey through some of Disney’s most beloved animated moments.
The all-new “World of Color – Celebrate!,” hosted by Mickey Mouse and Neil Patrick Harris, is just one part of the dazzling Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. Also debuting on May 22 will be the new “Paint the Night” parade and the fully-immersive, new “Disneyland Forever” fireworks spectacular.
