World of Color–Season of Light is the focus of this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Disney Trivia!
Did you know…?
Approximately 500 artists and technicians are involved in the creation and production of World of Color–Season of Light! The show’s 1,200 powerful fountains shoot water as high as 200 feet to help tell the story.
World of Color–Season of Light is a holiday adaptation of Disney California Adventure’s nighttime water/projection spectacular. In World of Color–Season of Light, fall has transformed into winter as Mickey Mouse and his pals get into the festive spirit and decorate their houses. Goofy goes a bit overboard with the lights, though, but what results is an eye-popping season of light for a holiday to remember!
The score for World of Color–Season of Light was recorded in sessions in London, Nashville and Chicago. The soundtrack features such holiday favorites as “The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole, “Let It Snow” by Dean Martin, “Baby It’s Cold Outside” by Michael Bublé and Idina Menzel, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by Amy Grant, and many more.

We don’t normally include suggested assignments with Tiggerific Tuesday, but this is one of our favorites! You may need to bookmark this and save it till spring if you live in a colder climate–or anywhere other than Florida! 😉
World of Color–Season of Light features pyrotechnic, water, and projection effects. Today, make your own water projection screen (tutorial from eHow) to display slideshows or Powerpoint presentations on for your family and friends. *Adult supervision and assistance is required!*
You will need:
1 and 1/2 inches PVC pipe threaded on the ends
1 and 3/4 inches steel pipes with threaded ends (one cut with a 1/2 inch slit down the length of it)
4 T joint steel couplers
2 Garden hoses
2 Fountain pumps
Thread seal tape
What to do:
1) Lay the PVC pipe on the ground. Make a small dot with the permanent marker every 1/4 inch down the length of the pipe by measuring with the tape measure. These dots should be in as straight a line as possible.
2) Drill very small holes where the marker dots are located with the electric drill. Make sure to drill the holes with the same directionality to allow the droplets to eventually flow to make a curtain of water.
3) Slide the PVC inside the steel pipe with the 1/2-inch slit cut into it. Rotate the PVC so the holes line up in the center of the slit. Screw on a T joint steel coupler on each end of the steel pole with the PVC inside it so that the bottom of the T joint is pointing downward-the same direction as the holes in the PVC.
4) Screw a steel pipe into each of the downward pointing T joints to be the supports of the water screen. Screw the other two T joint couplers into the other ends of these supports so the top of the T will be resting on the ground-it will look like a reflection of the joint on the other end of the support. Screw in the remaining four steel poles into the ends of the T joints to create the base of the supports. Rotate these base supports at the T joint so they are perpendicular to the PVC pipe.
5) Attach one end of each of the garden hoses to the ends of the PVC pipe. Attach the other end of the hoses into the output location on the fountain pumps.
6) Stand the water screen frame up. Align the trough below the frame and place the fountain pumps in it at either end. Fill the trough with water. Plug the pumps in to an electrical outlet or source. Turn the pumps on. Adjust the pressure on the pumps as needed to perfect the flow of the water to create the water screen.
Once your screen is set up, get out your projector and have a magical time!
