This weekend I brought my parents to see World of Color for their first time. They tend to be pretty picky about entertainment but love spectacles such as water shows and fireworks. They love the fireworks and they love Fantasmic. But when asking them about World of Color, they both actually felt that a lot of it was good but a lot of it didn't do anything for them.
And oddly enough, it's how I've felt about the show since 2010.
I like World of Color but I would prefer to love it, but not in its current form. I think it needs to be edited by at least 5 minutes. Couple reasons for this:
1. Water shows should be like fireworks. All spectacle and music. No story needed. There's too many moments from films that really slow the show to a stop and are unnecessary.
2. Fantasmic! uses water screens to transition between scenes. World of Color relies on them almost too much. The water fountains should be the star, not the projections.
3. One too many finale's, it's hard to tell when the end of the show is, which actually makes the show feel longer than it already is.
It wouldn't be hard to fix, but I really think World of Color would do better to have a good mix of songs in medley form instead of projecting the entire song. - like the fireworks!
So what do you think? Agree? Disagree?
