A little west coast love is coming to Walt Disney World as plans have been unveiled to roll-out “Glow with the Show” Ear Hats to the Florida resort. These ear hats feature lighting technology which can be controlled by Disney to add another element of excitement to Disney shows and attractions.
For those unfamiliar with the “Glow with the Show” Ear Hats, they were unveiled last year. Their debut performances were included as part of the popular World of Color show held at the Disney California Adventure Theme Park.
That unveiling occurred in August. Since then, they have proven to be quite a hit with Disney fans. The technology in the hats allows them to light up in different colors at different times which Disney utilizes to give another dimension to its shows.
The Florida debut of the “Glow with the Show” ear hats will occur on October 15th. That will mark the first time they will be synchronized for use as part of the Fantasmic! showing at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
On October 19, the special ear hats will be added to “Wishes” fireworks and the “Celebrate the Magic” nighttime projection show at Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom. Later in the year, they will also be functioning for The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The “Glow with the Show” ear hats may be purchased from many of the retail outlets located in the theme parks. During non-performance times, the hats may be turned on but will just cycle through different effects. It is only at showtimes that the hats will take on a new life as a “performer” in the show.
