There is a lot happening at the Disneyland Resort right now. Halloween Time is in full swing, the Park has announced all of the exciting holiday events that they are preparing for, and Cast Members are all busy trying to keep Guests as healthy and safe as possible.

And now it seems like The Happiest Place on Earth may be preparing for another big event.

Guests visiting Disney California Adventure Park on September 7 may have noticed all of the work happening along the waterfront where Guests used to stand to watch the nightly show World of Color — which has not come back since the theme parks reopened in April. Instagrammer Five Fires YouTube shared a video of the massive amount of work being done.

It appears that the popular ABC show Dancing With the Stars is preparing to do something at California Adventure — but as to what it is, Disney Parks have made no official announcement. As you can see, there are what look like giant mirror balls — a staple of the show — in front of a large DWTS logo.

However, a picture shared by Instagrammer Gothic Rosie, also shows the Good Morning America sign — GMA is the show that announces the cast each season.


Heads up the front center stage area in the World of Color viewing space is roped off and set up for tomorrow’s filming of Good Morning America.

They will have a live presentation “revealing the full cast of @dancingabc Season 30 live with @robinrobertsgma and @itslauraspencer .” This was announced on the @goodmorningamerica Twitter account (@gma) this morning.

Thanks to @aprilg0420 for the snap 📸of the filming spot🥰!

Since official casting for Dancing With the Stars will be announced tomorrow, just as Disney California Adventure is preparing something for Dancing With the Stars related, it could be that the cast will be announced right at the theme park! It is also possible that Dancing With the Stars will be filming at the theme park at a later date and Disney is simply setting up to film some sort of promotional commercial.
