From the Disney Parks Blog Post:
There's also a video of the hyped up stage show which appears to takes place along the side of Paradise Bay and uses the fountains from World of Color behind the stage.Last Friday, “Disney Channel Rocks,” a new rock-concert style show featuring performers who dance and sing live to music from Disney Channel shows and movies, debuted along Paradise Bay in Disney California Adventure park.
The 17-minute show includes parts of 12 songs, such as “Camp Rock,” “High School Musical,” “Cheetah Girls One World” and “Jump In,” movies as well as T.V. shows “Shake It Up” and “Hannah Montana.”
I'm going to admit it. I know a lot of you here on MiceChat are not fans of Disney Channel, but I am. I enjoy DCOMs (Disney Channel Original Movies) and I enjoy Hannah Montana. However, I'm still a bit hesitant to embrace a show like this at DCA along the bay because I don't understand how it fits thematically with the vision that Paradise Pier is a Victorian style amusement park. To me, it doesn't fit the theme. I'll reserve judgment until I see it.This is the first time a stage show is using the fountains from “World of Color” as a backdrop and an additional element for a daytime show. The fountains shoot up to 200 feet in the air and definitely amp up the fun.
I do embrace the idea of having a stage show in the area, but I also have mixed feelings about reusing the infrastructure from World of Color - it seems to me that part of the "magic" of World of Color should be that it appears from the bay only at night. But maybe that's just me.
