    OMG! They are re-using music from 20 years ago!!! The Party Gras Music!!!

    YAY!!

    And the Video of these puppets looks terrific!

    I would REALLY like to see them develop these lighted character puppet concepts into an all out parade!

    This was apparently a very last minute feature. It wasn't even at the castmember preview.

    Well, first I must say that the Puppets themselves look GREAT! Absolutely fantastic! I love how Tigger actually looks as if he is bouncing. Mike Wazouski is very, very good as well.

    However, saying that, I am not all that sure that they fit in. They seem too much like a PreParade then pre-entertainment. I would have rather seen more of these parade down Hollywood Pictures Backlot as a seperate entertainment offering (as well as a replacement for Glow Fest) then to have these guys quickly go through the viewing area.

    Also, the music just doesn't do it for me. Party Gras is for a Party Atmosphere. And World of Color isn't exactly what I would call a party atmosphere. I would have rather seen just a band set up towards the center of the viewing area and play some Jazz for 45 minutes to an hour then this short presentation.

    It seems like a great concept but in the completely wrong spot.

    There was so much more to this "pre-show". The characters were mascots for the various colored "viewing zones". Red for Sebastian. Orange for Tigger. Yellow for Lumiere, etc. The OP was in the yellow section. This is just the final minute or two as the characters were exiting the viewing area. The characters were "on-stage" for about 15-20 minutes total. We (KOST-FM ticket pack winners) were allowed to stand wherever we wanted in order to view the show. No fastpasses were issued. I think the fact that the characters represented different colored "zones" was lost on many in this particular crowd because the colored zones were irrelevent at this performance. Once the show begins for the general public, the guest will be told on the fastpass which colored section they are being sent to. While we did have a vocal crowd, the pitting of the various colored zones against each other in a "scream off" to show your support for "your" character/colored section, will be more fully realized...and participated in.

    It was great to hear the old "Party Gras Parade" music again (although where the words "Party Gras" used to be, the word "Carnivale" is now substituted). Still, it was a hit with the crowd and a fun distraction from continuously staring at your watch checking to see how much longer before the show starts. Simple but thoroughly enjoyable. Kudos.

    The elevated stage was used but was in the elevated position throughout the day. It was used by the KOST-FM/103MY-FM radio talent. Their comments were brief and self effacing. One "DJ" uttered the word "hell" in his monologue which prompted the lady behind me to remark "You can't say 'hell' in here!". Thought it was funny but it did seem out of place. Two additional yet smaller stages were used to put the two pre-show singers into the audience. The illuminated characters shown in the video also wandered around throughout the audience during the musical moments to give guests an up-close view.

    As the WoC show began, security and crowd control began running around frantically telling people that they couldn't film the show. One security guard that I saw actually climbed from a lower tier to the higher one by way of going over the railing in order to stop someone from filming. We were not told of this rule in advance, unless I missed it.

    I'm not too fond of the show (saw it last night at the KOST party). First thought before everything started (when I saw them take everything out) was that it looked cool. The costumes themselves were quite awesome...

    However, when the show started, I thought it was kind of lame and fell down to the quality level of Celebrate! A Street Party...

    I didn't expect much and do appreciate the show being there (as it is better than nothing), but I hope over time, they put a better pre-show together.

    Pretty much, I didn't like the "game" aspect they put into the show. I felt that the hosts were trying too hard to actually have fun and had no true enthusiasm in what they were doing. The crowd itself seemed to be quite tired also and was more antsy for the show than the actual pre-show, but that could've been my section/people around me.

    It's a decent entertainment show to keep guests happy during the wait, but I think Disney could do better (especially after seeing the production quality of World of Color).

    I was there last night as well for the KOST party. I also thought this pre-show was lame.


    but the kids like it. I guess that's all that matters.

    I agree. I saw a different angle and it was just like Celebrate!

    It just seems way to modern, party-like, and un-classy for World of Color.

    It could have DEFINITELY been done better. I was with Craze4mm and he seemed to enjoy it a little :P But WoC blew me away completely and I am still lost for words

    yeah, same here. World of Color just blows the parade away. After a few hours of trying to convince myself what I saw really happened, i started asking..."what if they really made the show lamer than what it could be just so people's expectations drop in case the show isn't as great as the imagineers thought it was?" haha. Crazy idea, but yeah...thought I'd throw it out there.
