As the Disneyland Resort gears up for the Disney 100 Years of Wonder celebration, they’ve announced additional details for the upcoming World of Color — ONE  nighttime spectacular that is being introduced for the centennial celebration. As has been the case for several years now, virtual queue will be used to manage guest flow in the main viewing areas.

How to Join the Virtual Queue

In order to secure a Virtual Queue for World of Color – ONE you will need your park tickets already linked to your Disney account AND have a valid theme park reservation. You will be able to access primary viewing areas for the show through a virtual queue system available only via the Disneyland app.

  1. Open the Disneyland App and make sure you are signed in.
  2. From the Disneyland App home screen, you will see your theme park reservation. Make sure your tickets are also linked.
  3. Distribution for the complimentary Virtual Queue will begin at 12:00 PM noon, daily (subject to availability), and is available for guests who have entered Disney California Adventure park for the day OR have entered Disneyland park with a Park Hopper ticket.
  4. A minute before noon when the Virtual Queue enrollment begins, open the Virtual Queue section for World of Color — ONE in the app. On nights when there are multiple showtimes, distribution for additional showtimes will begin immediately after distribution for the first showtime has ended.
  5. If you have obtained a virtual queue selection, enter your designated viewing area for your designated show time via one of the two marked entrance points (Blue or Yellow) approximately 30-45 minutes before the show begins.
