Disneyland Confirms All Three Nighttime Spectaculars Are Closing…Even Paint the Night

World of ColorDisneyland confirmed news most fans did not want to hear yesterday. Paint the Night, the parade at Disneyland Park, will be closing on September 5 as the Diamond Celebration comes to an end. In the last few days Disneyland has announced that both World of Color – Celebrate! and the Fantasy in the Sky Fireworks would be ending around the same time, but nothing had been said until yesterday about Paint the Night.

World of Color – Celebrate and Fantasy in the Sky were both shows that were probably slightly underwhelming. The original World of Color (which is returning) is widely thought of as a better show compared to the newer version of the last couple of years. Furthermore, the Fantasy in the Sky fireworks did bring some unique aspects with the projection technology and other elements the fireworks show itself was not quite as impressive to most guests at earlier shows in that park.

The big disappointment from fans though will come with the lost of Paint the Night. This parade has become a beloved show after having just been present in the park since the start of the Diamond Celebration. Now, it too will be going dark leaving a lot of questions as to what is coming as far as nighttime entertainment at Disneyland, especially with Fantasmic! down for refurbishment of the Rivers of America section of the park. We do know that World of Color is coming back in something close to its original form, but nothing else has been announced as nighttime entertainment. So, it remains to be seen what parades and fireworks will show up next at the Disneyland Resort.

Disneyland is Bringing Back the Original World of Color Show

World of ColorDisneyland announced today that the original World of Color show will be returning to Disney’s California Adventure Park this September. The original version of the show had been replaced by World of Color – Celebrate! which has been in its current state since the Diamond Anniversary Celebration began last year. Despite the new show many still felt the original World of Color was a better fit for Disneyland and on September 6, the original show will return. The final show for World of Color – Celebrate! will be September 5.
