I see some people saying that if the OP is new, perhaps they don't understand the way things work. It's not just the Dis. This attitude about new posters and rumours is not unique. If you went to the Cats forum I belong to and started posting 'official news' without any sort of source to back it up, you'd get just as much flack. In fact, people with barely any posts who go around saying ridiculous things often get the banhammer. It's called trolling, and if someone's doing it inadvertently, they had better well learn quickly that that's not acceptable.

I'm not slamming the OP. For all I know, they may be new to the Internet itself. However, defending trolls is silly and it's up to everyone to learn and adapt to the sometimes-strange rules of the Interwebs.

I totally agree with you there. I have been a member here for a long time, about 2005 or so and I've noticed some nasty behavior in the last year or so. I use to be a big poster but lately I lurk more and more because of the attitude of some.

World of Color. It's a nighttime show at Disneyland or California Adventures ( I think that's the name of the park).

I really don't think anyone's been that nasty. However, you throw out "IT'S OFFICIAL!" in your title, and then post what is basically a rumor, you're gonna get razzed for it. Especially when it's something like this that is so clearly unlikely.

Those of us that have been on the boards have seen so many "on good authority" rumors that have amounted to nothing that we can smell a bad one. If it comes out as being "nasty" for us to say we think you are wrong...I don't know.

I've posted rumors on here myself. I've always had them sourced from somewhere. Many of them have been wrong. Some have been dead on. (I posted a link to a film shoot for Star Tours 2.0 about 6 months before it was announced.) It doesn't hurt my feelings if someone says my rumor makes no sense, or my source is no good. C'mon, this is the internet. You better have some thick skin, even on the DIS, which is in my view one of the kinder, gentler sites on the internet.

I think there were a couple of comments that were borderline nasty but I was talking about the mood of the boards generally. There have been several posts in the last year that got pretty nasty. I think at times writing things on an Internet board makes people say and do things they would never think about in real life.

As others have said, it is unlikely that WoC will replace Illuminations at Epcot, as the viewing requirements are different for each show. WoC is viewed from one side, while Illuminations has 360 degree viewing. Also, in order to install the WoC lights and fountains, the entire World Showcase Lagoon would need to be emptied and modified. I just don't see this happening. Not impossible, just improbable.

However, the show could be installed in a new venue at any park. Just because a park has existing water features doesn't mean that's where the WoC show would have to be installed. On that note:

WoC could be installed at DAK. The show doesn't contain "fireworks", but does contain flame effects, which don't have percussive/explosive sounds. The show sound as it exists at DCA was specifically designed to be in compliance with the local noise "ordinance", as DCA is in very close proximity to a residential neighborhood. WoC would be the perfect night time spectacular for DAK, given it's current design elements and I might add, that most of the current content would fit with the DAK theme as well, minus WALL-E, Toy Story, and Pirates. But Hey it's Disney. They can figure it out.

ok whatever.

Anyway, yesterday came and went and surprise surprise no "official" announcement about WoC.

So until the next supposedly new person decides to announce something else on behalf of Disney as "Official" I think this subject is done.

I do hope the mods are checking out if any of these new people have the same IP address etc though...

I haven't been able to take a trip to Disneyland and see world of color. As much as I would love to be able to see world of color when im at Disney there is no way I could give up one of the other shows. I love illuminations and every time we go we end up seeing from a different part of the lagoon. I think it is a great way to end a day in EPCOT.
The same goes with Fantasmic I know its been around for a while but I look forward to seeing it every time we go. I don't feel like I haven't spent the day in DHS if I don't get my Hollywood n vine and fastasmic. Its clear that people still love Fantasmic seeing as they line up hours before the show to get a seat, some might find it outdated...I find it to be a classic like the electrical parade at MK.
I think having different shows between WDW and DLR is great. When I go to DLR I really want it to feel like its the first time I have been to a Disney park. I know there are a lot of differences and DLR has CA but if they had all the same shows it would lose some of its awe appeal for me personally. I would just continue going to WDW because its closer and I don't have to go through the hassle flying (its easier for us to drive to FL)

On a side note...my first trip in 2000 they also had Tapestry of Nations for the millennium celebration and I loved it. I wish they would bring it back even it was only for a short time.

We should just squash this whole thing. View it like this... lets say you walk into a room with 1,000 Disney fans/experts and announce "its official... blah blah blah" and it really isn't true. Do you think the whole room would disregard it and just let it go? Absolutly not. I know this is a rumors board, but when you attatch the magical "confirmed" or "official" words, they better be legit bc you are saying its no longer a rumor. That is how you should view a forum, especially one like the DIS that has so many followers and users. Granted, some of us could be a little more nice in our tone, but to be honest you have to expect that. It is suspicious when the OP has only a few posts and drops a "confirmed" thread, as we have seen in the past with threads like this. i am in no means saying people with low post counts don't know anything or that their posts are irrelevant. Just pointing out how sometimes peope create accounts to basically spam the boards.

thats why I usually go to wdwrumors.com to check on the latest buzz (not lightyear lol) and then come here for the discussion on other things

I'm gonna side with anthony2k7 on this one. I don't think anything he said was overly harsh, and especially he even said (and I'm paraphrasing) "nothing personal to original poster but new members posting 'official' rumors with no basis other than a CM told them are not a very trustworthy source", and he's right.

Are people suggesting that we should just agree with every rumor posted?

Back to the (side) topic of World of Color - I'm not sure how many people have seen it. I was lucky enough to see it last year, and I have to say it blows all the WDW shows away. Simply amazing.

However, there is NO location at WDW that would work for this show. Epcot as pointed out has too large and spacious a lagoon. It would never work. MK obviously has no place for it.

DAK wouldn't really work either. Sure, there's no fireworks, but there are fire effects and it is very loud. I cannot picture that they could run the show there at night anyways. Even if they could, there also needs to be a broad open viewing area, and there is really no place like this in AK. The closest area would be where the Discover river over by EE, but again there's not a real large straight area all facing one direction. Not to say it couldn't be done, but I think it unlikely.

In fact, the ONLY place that it might actually work would be DHS where the Fantastmic theatre is, as much of World Of Color is like the water projection screens there. But why would they replace an immensely popular show with something that would have the same level of draw? Doesn't make sense.

Really, I think this is more of a fan-made rumor than anything Disney has EVER indicated. Has Disney EVER mentioned cloning world of color? Not once that I am aware of. Just because it's a great show doesn't mean it has to be everywhere. Each park really needs it's own show. Even Fantasmic most agree doesn't work as well in Florida.
