Guests of the Disneyland Resort will light the night thanks to new Glow with the Show Ear hats that change colors in sync with shows at Disney California Adventure Park.
Starting June 15, fun interactive versions of the famous Mickey Ear hats will incorporate the latest, infra-red trigger technology to engage the audience during “World of Color” and Mad T Party. The Ear hats feature iridescent lights that change to complement the imagery and beat of the shows. When not activated by the shows, more surprises are in store for guests as the magical ears glow with other settings around Disney California Adventure Park.
The Glow with the Show Ear hats add one more layer of fun to the grand reopening of Disney California Adventure Park with the premieres of two, highly anticipated themed lands, Cars Land and Buena Vista Street. These exciting new lands highlight a five-year expansion that has brought more than 20 new attractions, shows and experiences to the Disneyland Resort, along with expansion and renovations at the three Disneyland Resort hotels.
“Glow with the Show Ear hats let our guests become part of the color of our magical ‘World of Color’ at the Paradise Pier lagoon,” said Steve Davison, creative entertainment vice president of parades and spectaculars. “Embedded pixels allow the Ears to dance and play along with each musical sequence. It truly brings the show’s environment out of the lagoon and into the audience in an amazing and dazzling new way.”
Each set of Glow with the Show Ears is available for $25 at select locations throughout Disney California Adventure. Specialty Glow Ear packages are available for Annual Passholders. The $40 package, including ears, lanyard and pin, is available for purchase June 15 or while supplies last in Disney California Adventure shops and the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney.
