A Christmas in July Announcement from Disney California Adventure

Disney Parks have chosen to celebrate Christmas in July by announcing a special Winter version of World of Color for Disney California Adventure.

Named World of Color - Winter Dreams, the new version of the popular nighttime fountain show will be specially created for the holiday season.  The updated performance will feature new animation from popular Disney films such as Bambi and Toy Story, but also new content from Frozen, a feature film that will be released around that time.

The show will be hosted by Olaf, a humorous character from Frozen.  The animated comedy-adventure film will be in the vein of many of the company's classics:  "Fearless optimist Anna sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter.  Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom."

In the video above the show's designer, Steve Davison, hints that Winter Dreams will feature all new effects and other "ideas" which will differentiate it from the regular World of Color show.

Winter Dreams - World of Color will premier at Disney California Adventure on November 15th.
