The first scene to be added to the World of Color show at Disney California Adventure park is one from TRON: Legacy. It is no secret that Disney has been hyping the sequel to the 1982 film, with the Hollywood Pictures Backlot area becoming a huge TRON themed dance party on weekend nights (Read more on ElecTRONica), and if your a regular reader here on DNL you’ll also know that the TRON scene was in the works to be added to the show (more here). Last night the 2 minute and 15 second addition “soft opened” at the end of the World of Color show. The addition includes a clip from the film as well as some impressive effects not only on the giant water screens but also on the California Screamin’ roller coaster and the Mickey’s Fun Wheel attraction. It is very impressive and was a definite crowd pleaser as Disney is creating a lot of buzz around the film, set to release December 17th.

What are your thoughts about TRON: Legacy being added to the World of Color show? Do you think TRON is taking over at DCA, or is it a great addition?

    It’s a great addition. I love the aesthetic it brings. It adds some more variety.

    BTW, this mobile page crashes Facebook apps on the iPhone. I had to completely uninstall and reinstall Facebook just to get control back.

      I can’t duplicate what you are describing. Any issues would be caused by the built-in facebook app browser and there isn’t much I can do about that. Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    Tangled opens well before TRON. So why not promote that movie as well? In fact, the Disney parks are hardly doing anything to promote Tangled beyond a few posters and the meet and greet.
