The interactive, color-changing ‘Glow With the Show’ Ears have been all the rage at Disneyland for about a year, and now they’re coming to the Walt Disney World Resort.
The magical Mickey Ears are debuting at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on October 15, which happens to be the 15th anniversary of at Fantasmic!
The ear hats utilize the latest technology to light up and synchronize with the various entertainment experiences at the parks, making guests a part of the show.
“Technology allows the Ear hats to dance and play along with each musical and illuminated sequence,” said Dara Trujillo, manager of merchandise marketing, communication, synergy and integration, Walt Disney World Resort. “They truly bring the show’s environment out of the lagoon and the sky, and into the audience in an amazing and dazzling new way, making our guests truly Glow With the Show.”
In addition to their debut at Fantasmic!, the hats will also become part of Wishes fireworks and Celebrate the Magic nighttime projection show at the Magic Kingdom on October 19.
Guests should also wear their Glow With the Show hats during The Osbourne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights and Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season. Both experiences will bring special surprises for guests who have the ear hats.
The Glow with the Show ear hats are available for $25 at select locations in the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
