    Why World of Color is better than Fantasmic

    We all know how Fantasmic is better than WOC (storyline, smooth transitions, etc.) but we should all turn our frowns upside down and list everything that makes WOC better than Fantasmic. This doesn't mean that WOC is better than Fantasmic, and vice versa, but just showing all the advantages WOC has that makes it special and unique.

    Discuss.

    Because all these people do is complain that WOC isn't perfect. Their thoughts are mostly right, but they're just repeated too much! We all just need to see all the things that make WOC great, since we have been waiting for this show for like 3 years.

    Ditto. But it is probably the same people who try to compare DL and DCA. They are 2 separate parks, but most can't comprehend that.

    What makes WoC great? There is no reason to see it more than once.

    The problem is, when it came out and even now, Fantasmic! is unique while WOC for the most part is an elaborate water and light show that has already been done (Bellagio, Knott's, Sea World)... just in a much better way

    I 'liked" it but in no hurry to see it again

    Sure, there's been other water fountain shows out there, but this takes those shows to a whole new level. If y'all think the show isn't worth seeing more than once, then why don't you try to come up with a concept that's better?
    And please, don't add fireworks to your idea. We had to deal with settling smoke from Luminaria, we don't want a repeat of that.

    I agree. No fireworks. I'm happy with the flame-throwers. But really, I wish people would stop comparing the two. It's been stated from the beginning these shows are totally different. It's like comparing Fantasmic! to the Electrical Parade or the Electrical Parade to the fireworks shows.

    Agreed, like I've said before, you're comparing an apple to an orange. They're two completely different shows.

    I'll never understand you people on this board. Everything that is in DCA is terrible, but everything new they do HAS TO BE AMAZING. It's like you can't make up your mind.

    World of Color is severely flawed, but it also has easy fixes. A big part of it is making it more accessible for the general public. A viewing area of 4,000 people is ridiculous, so they need to find a way for more people to able to see it at each showing. This is why I recommended removing the mist screens entirely - they add little to the show, but restrict a LOT more viewing capacity.

    Tell the story like the Hero's Journey: start with intros (opening of Lion King, for example), then lead to scenes of conflict (hellfire, Buzz fight)... then resolve them (happy ending).

    Ditch the cheesy "World of Color" pop song, and stick with classic tunes and themes.

    With those minor changes alone, the show becomes significantly better.

    Also, those are the things FANTASMIC has, which is why it is seen as a better show. It's not rocket science, guys.

    Why make it exactly like Fantasmic? That would make it worse. It's its own show which is why it makes it better. Making it exactly like Fantasmic with the "hero where everything goes wrong then there is a climax where the hero wins" is typical Disney. I'm glad they changed things up. But if you want a show that is exactly like Fantasmic, go see Fantasmic then.
