    Hi, We're visiting on Thu / Fri this week - we could visit either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park on the Thursday evening - which has the best evening events would you say? Many thanks!

    Hi there, Jonathan,

    There are plenty of great evening entertainment options at the Disneyland Resort, including some terrific evening acts at the Downtown Disney District. But I suspect you are most looking forward to the amazing evening spectaculars that take place in Disney California Adventure Park and Disneyland Park.

    Which park to choose will depend on your personal preferences and experiences. For example, my favorite nighttime spectacular at the Disneyland Resort is Fantasmic! in Disneyland Park. I love the amazing storytelling, the talented live-action performances, and the thrilling pyrotechnics and projections that make this show a magical journey into the imagination of Mickey Mouse.

    But if you have already experienced Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida and don’t feel overwhelmingly curious about how the two versions of the show compare to each other, you might want to seek out something especially unique to the Disneyland Resort. That is generally considered to be World of Color. Only now, we can enjoy the limited-time version of the show called World of Color - ONE that is playing as part of the Disney100 Celebration.

    Tony’s Tip: If you choose to experience World of Color - ONE, I recommend using the Disneyland mobile app to join the virtual queue to claim a spot in the preferred viewing area of the show in Paradise Gardens Park. At 12:00 PM, Guests may begin to request to join the virtual queue in the app. Or for a particularly special experience, you may wish to check if there are any openings to book a table at the World of Color Dessert Party.

    Whether you choose to enjoy Fantasmic!, World of Color - ONE, or Wondrous Journeys, I’m sure you can’t go wrong. The Imagineers who designed these amazing shows have created experiences that uplift and inspire.

    Have a magical time, Jonathan!
