Debuting this Friday, June 11th, 2010, is the World of Color water show at Disney California Adventure, next to Disneyland. Some have already experienced a sneak preview exclusively held for special guests, friends, media, and family of Disney insiders aka cast members, and celebrities on 6/10. LA Times’ Travel Blog [via] anticipate this “water spectacular” to be a crowd control nightmare. Plus, there’s a video contest to win a free vacation to see World of Color along with sweet prizes. Contest entries are due by July 12, 2010. We get to vote for the grand prize winner among 10 finalists between July 26 to August 6th. (At the time of this writing, 36 videos have been created.) MiceChat is holding a contest for the first 3 reviews of World of Color and best photo. Here’s the official Disney 80-second promo video about World of Color:
