Disneyland is adding even more magic to their new Glow with the Show Mickey Mouse ear hats, now making them interact with the Fantasmic! nighttime spectacular along the Rivers of America.
Since first debuting the high-tech Mouse ears at a media event in June, Disney has promoted the hats by offering a few after-hours events inviting a limited number of guests to experience World of Color at the Disney California Adventure theme park with a sea of ears illuminating in sync with the show. The ears also light up in time with music at the Mad T Party and change colors in Cars Land.
Outside of those special events, guests can purchase Glow with the Show ears at the Disneyland Resort for $25, with tax, lighting up each night.
Now Disney is taking the technology across the Esplanade to Disneyland park where guests watching Fantasmic! will later this month be able to see a variety of fades, sweeps, intensities mixed with a rainbow of colors bringing the show into the crowd.
For all the Disney geeks out there, Disneyland recently offered a behind-the-scenes look at how the Glow with the Show ears work, utilizing IR technology to its fullest.
