Sorry if this has been mentioned before in advance...
So I came across these videos of Futurescope's newest night time water show entitled Le Mystere de la Note Bleue....can we say Wonderful World of Color? I wonder if this park was trying to lift Disney's concepts or do you think Disney maybe heard about what Futurescope was doing and is taking it to the next level (in which only Disney can do).
Check the videos out:

There are ton more videos on youtube but i thought these 2 would give you guys the idea.
Now like I said Disney is doing this on a much LARGER scale with better FX and show enhancements but I think they share a common thread.
