Parades and Shows - Disney California Adventure

Five 'N' Dime

A group of maverick musicians arrive in their makeshift jalopy on their way from Chicago to Hollywood looking for their big break. They enlist the help of the crowd (and Goofy) while performing standards from the 20s and 30s.

Disney's World of Color

This nighttime water spectacular premiered June 11, 2010.  World of Color combines fountains, movie projections and lighting effects to produce the popular show.

Fountains shoot water 200 feet into the air, creating the world's largest projected water screen measuring 380 feet by 50 feet allowing for 19,000 square feet of viewing.  The jets of water move in time to the original Sherman Brothers score from the 1960's TV show "World of Color."  Popular Disney characters are brought to life in the sprays of water and on the shimmering mist screens.

Want Reserved Seating?

There is room for approximately 4,200 guests to view World of Color from the Paradise Pier area.  Please note - this is standing room only.  In spite of its size, this area gets crowded very easily, as World of Color is quite popular.  We recommend getting a reserved location to view the show.  There are a few ways to do this. 


Guests can get a FASTPASS in the morning for the evening's show(s) at the FASTPASS terminals around the corner from The Little Mermaid-Ariel's Undersea Adventure or on the Disneyland App.  There are a limited number of FASTPASSES available and you will get an assigned time to view the show.  Guests with FASTPASSES can view the show from Paradise Gardens Park in various distinct areas, delineated by color.   Guests without FASTPASSES will need to view the show from the boardwalk area and will only see the ‘back side’ of the show.  These are mostly obstructed view locations.

Disney Junior Dance Party

Disney Junior Dance Party features current Disney Channel favorites in a fun interactive show.

Join characters from "Mickey and the Roadster Racers", " Doc McStuffins", "Vampirina", and "The Lion Guard" as the DJs keep the party going.

The audience is invited to sit on the floor. Kids can join in and sing and dance along with familiar tunes from the Disney Channel pre-school lineup.

Turtle Talk with Crush

This interactive show with everybody’s favorite turtle from Finding Nemo (and Finding Dory), can be found in the Disney Animation building, in Hollywood Land.  Inside the show, there are movie theater like seats for the adults and a large open space on the floor, in front of the screen, where children are encouraged to sit (adults are welcome to join them there too if they like). 

Before long your host will be introducing you to Crush, who appears on the screen to look at all “the humans in the human tank”.  Through some amazing technology, Crush is then able to interact with the children in the audience. Throughout the show Crush asks questions of the audience members and then answers some too.  He also encourages children to use words such as “totally”, “righteous”, and “dude”.

Every show of Turtle Talk offers a different dialogue, but it is always filled with lots of laughs.
