    No World of Color in May?

    I'm puzzled... I am planning a trip to Disneyland in mid-May, and according to the DLR website, there is no World of Color or Fantasmic (or anything) playing all week... even on the weekends. Is that unusual? Could the website just not be accurate? I realize that early May is a typically low-attendance season, but geez...

    I've never seen World of Color, and would really like to.

    It sucks, but it could be taking some downtime to tinker with the equipment a bit, fine tune the show more, or start coming up w/ new effects for the summer season.

    The Disneyland website is frankly terrible for these type of things. I really wish they made the site more user friendly.

    In other words, don't trust anything it says that extends past 3 weeks in the future

    I asked the same question in a different thread because I'm planning a trip around the same time. Someone said that Disney just hasn't updated their entertainment schedule yet. I can't imagine they wouldn't run Fantasmic! and the fireworks on the weekends. Hasn't World of Color played nearly every day since it debuted? Even in the off season? I'm hoping it will continue through May.

    There will indeed be a WOC playing in May. I don't see why not.

    The reason you might not see it on the website might be due to several reason:

    It could be that they might need to show the first WOC at 9pm now because of the daylight saving last week.

    I'll say check the DL sites calendar next month (2nd half of April to be excact). They should have the schedule updated by then.

    With DCA closing at 8PM the first few weeks of May, when will WOC play? I seem to remember the show playing at 8:15 on nights the park closed at 8.

    Fantasmic might not be playing during late April/early May because of all the preparations that go on for the Pirates premiers. It takes time to set things up and take them down.

    I doubt they would shut down WOC during that time as well.

    Re: No World of Color in May?

    And to touch upon something you mentioned, May is NOT a downtime. This is when summer is about to start so a lot of people get their trips in before it gets too busy (only to realize, ALOT of other people are doing the same).

    WOC should be showing while Fantasmic is iffy at this point as everyone stated about POTC. But it's only March and any info on May on the Ent Sched is never shown this early. Wait til mid-April, you'll get a definite answer than.

    Ummm...May is, without question, downtime. It is one of the emptiest, if not the emptiest, month at Disneyland, especially the first two weeks. Awesome time to visit.

    Re: No World of Color in May?

    I have been checking the disney site on a daily basis as well because I am going the first week in May, I have already pretty much planned on missing the fireworks but I might be switching my plans around and going from Sunday to Tuesday, instead of Tuesday to Thursday just because I don't want to chance missing WOC.
