There is a new game to entertain you while waiting for World of Color.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 11/22/13

You log onto the free wi-fi network and reach the website to play. The game is like Simon Says.. you watch the wheel then mimic the pattern on your device. The winner is based on accuracy and time and you get to control the lights on the wheel for a few moments then. The user interface to play.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 11/22/13

Video of the game in action.

The 5 minute announcement for World of Color - Winter Dreams.

Show time. Note the Honor Choir is technically a preshow so it started about 3 minutes to the top of the hour.

The show reached this section of Glow, near the end, and the sound cut and video froze, they restarted after about ten minutes and the show froze in the same spot then they cancelled it.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 11/22/13

Here is video clip from last week of Glow (for more pictures & video check out my site or Jeanine's posting here on Allears).

Since there were no fireworks (due to weather) they ran another Wintertime Enchantment Holiday Lighting segment then the White Christmas snowfall
