Mickey Mouse ear hats have been a Disney fan favorite ever since they were simply black. They have experienced many redesigns since then, and are now about to go through a transformation like no other. With the latest technology, “Glow With the Show” ears will allow Disney park guests to become part of the various attractions found throughout the park, starting off with Disney California Adventure.
“Glow with the Show now lets our guests become part of the color of our magical ‘World of Color’ at the Paradise Bay lagoon,” describes Steve Davison, Creative Entertainment Vice President of Parades & Spectaculars. “Throughout the show, the Glow with the Show Ears become a set of pixels that dance and play along with each sequence in ‘World of Color’ in a bright and dynamic way. For example, during the show, guests become part of the ocean with the Little Mermaid, a shining galaxy of stars for WALL-E and Eve, an extension of the Genie’s magic in ‘Friend Like Me,’ among other interactive explosions of color throughout the entire show. It truly brings the show’s environment out of the lagoon and into the audience in an amazing and dazzling new way!”
These special ears will be available starting June 15th, and no price point has been announced as of yet. Also, while the ears will for sure work with World of Color, there are more surprises that Disney wants guests to find out for themselves! We’re excited to find out all the magical ways to use these ears!
