    A113's Report of Color - 6/12 [No Spoilers]

    Yeah I was lazy so here it is.

    Note: I have successfully resisted spoiling anything related tor World of Color prior to this visit, so I have absolutely no idea what to expect!

    I went to DCA over the weekend to check out the World of Color. We checked into a hotel Friday night so we could wake up early and head over to the park for the fastpass. Lucky for us our hotel was walking distance, so no transportation was required, hooray!



    Walking by Sticky & Friends Parking Lot.



    They should add more floors.



    Doors are not friends; They're food.



    Staring at those with disgust.. bleh. Stupid doorz.



    And here it i--- whoah... that's a long line. From what I recall, it was 8:50am.



    Thankfully for our special skills we were able to find a new line and jump right in it!



    They had these up in the esplanade, pretty cool. +1 for the castmember with coffee.



    It's the run of the bulls! It's Six Flags all over again!

    And thankfully for my impressive stride and cross country/track skills, I outran and passed almost everyone in front of me! We got pretty ahead in the line for the fast pass too.



    Noted.



    My brother was waiting in line with our APs, so I chilled to the side. Look at all those people!

    And during the time I was chilling to the side I tried to be a little artsy with the photography







    And Lo and behold; ladies and gentleman, the World of Color Fastpass!



    I wasn't familiar with what area was good for viewing, but from what Ckelef1 (my brother) and cast members told me, Blue is a pretty good spot.



    Hey kids, look! It's the 405 on water!



    Cookies for whoever can tell me what's missing from this picture!



    Ahaha the line extended pretty far out. And I bet that's just the beginning!



    No.. you can't be seri-- facepalm.







    I spy the special audio equipment.



    Oooh Mommy! Can we go to the Crane Ride over there when they let the rope down!?!?



    So the park opened, and everyone 400'd their way to where ever in the park they were headed in (Bonus for those who get the pun!), but our first stop was the Blue Sky Cellar. I was eager to see the update (which I didn't spoil either)!



    Here's what California Screamin' looks like from above.



    And that's what Radiator Springs Racers looks like from above in its current, if not earlier, state.



    I'm 50% positive that's Autodesk Revit.



    The vehicles for the little mermaid.



    Vehicle for wheelchairs.



    Overview of the ride!





    Is that half of a pencil?"



    This is where you go down into the water!





    Red Car



    Sky school..









    ..I can't wait for this!





    Tortilla place still not open D:



    They had these around the park. It was a nice touch, but it personally looks too modern in my opinion.



    I see you there California Screamin'!



    Mega water explosions here in 10 hours.



    Yup, Silly Symphony Swings. I actually enjoyed it.



    Yes.



    YES.



    I like the architecture they did here.



    I wanna fly over WoC



    Hai thar Mr. Welder!



    Let's go with Heimlich and eat bent churros!



    Yes. Nerd shot.



    Meh..



    Success.



    Hai thar purple train.



    Coming soon: Maliboomer 2 - The Revenge



    Because I can .



    Oh, goodie! 5 Train operation! Sure is colorful!



    YES



    DOUBLE YES



    Look normal, right?



    But up close there's an easter egg! AHA! There's the Hidden Mickey!



    Um.. no.



    Damn bro I can't believe the Celtics lost.. (Side note: LET'S GO LAKERS)



    Can you spell Rece$$ion?



    PLUMP FICTION YEA

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9rg2uP_xXk]YouTube - Dick Dale- Misirlou[/ame]



    Wow that's such a cheap price!



    Um.. what.



    No.



    They had these..



    Quite a party they have planned!





    Just no, who came up with this idea?

    ---

    And finally, what we all have been waiting for, we headed over on time for World of Color seating!





    Yep. That's my dinner folks.



    Aarg! Yee be ready for World of Color, eeh?



    This is very rare for the trains to do.



    WEEE!!



    The pier was surely lighting up at this time.



    Artsy picture.. the rides were closed at this time. Then something something something good happened..



    This guy..

    '

    These guys were huge..



    Good job disney.. during the warm up party they directed these guys on the bridge to "hop up and down" like Tigger. They could've like.. fallen into the lagoon, like are they really that serious?



    Then the guys began to leave.. bai GENIE!!



    8:59pm.



    9:00pm. Truly epic show.. expect my review in the Disneyland forum soon..



    OMG. FLOUR TORTILLAS. IT WORKS!! Epic Win of Trip #2 (#1 to come )



    Glowfest.. ew.



    Just.. no.



    I have to admit the music was really sick, but this whole thing was just.. no. It doesn't fit here. I like it, but it just doesn't fit here.

    If you don't know.. my ride on Tower of Terror was a memorable one.. I met 3 new friends, one of them is special! . It really made my day.



    Don't mess with this guy.. he'll make you clean up after C!ASP every performance daily.



    That my friends, wraps up this wonderful trip. I had a blast!

    Thanks for reading, and 'till next time!

    I was there when you were (sorry no pic...I was dumb and forgot my camera).

    We did the 6/12/10 10:15 showing.
    We didn't get into the park until about 10am
    so I never saw that line. We got Yellow area....some of our group got Red, so majority ruled and we went to Red area.

    To that end I'd like the Internet community to join me in reminding the Disney company that "it all started with Walt." As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.

    Pretty sure; WDI uses Sketch-up for pre-vis and stuff. They don't use it for everything though.

    I ask because I'm a current Sketchup User and I used it for an extracurricular architecture class at a firm. Most of the guys working there were using Revit, and the renders they had posted up on walls looked a lot like the render of The Little Mermaid. I remember in the previous exhibit they had a picture of Silly Symphony Swings, and that one I know for a fact was Sketchup

    I fail at sketchup. I just end up making weird shapes.

    am i seriously the only one who is bothered by the fact that that giant ugly stage is out in the open above water during the day for everyone to see?

    Did they put the water dye in yet? What is going on?
