Glow with the Show ears

Walt Disney World has announced that it will begin selling "Glow with the Show" ears on October 15, 2013, enabling guests to "participate" in live shows at the resort.

The ears first went on sale at Disney California Adventure in June 2012, and are designed to add an extra dimension to performances of Disney's popular entertainment offerings. The ears literally "Glow with the Show", lighting up in time with key moments in Fantasmic!, World of Color and other favorites.

At Walt Disney World the ears will be synchronized with Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios to mark the show's 15th anniversary. From October 19, they will also work in time with the Wishes fireworks display and the Celebrate the Magic projection show at the Magic Kingdom. Come Christmas, they'll be a part of the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Hollywood Studios.

The effect of the ears can be seen in the video below, which shows a performance of Fantasmic! at Disneyland.

The ears are likely to be priced in line with their Disneyland equivalents, at $25 per pair.

So pretty! It will be just like going to a Coldplay gig with the Xyloband glowing wristbands - You really do feel part of the show.

Yes! I'm so excited for the Glow with the Show ears to finally be coming to Walt Disney World.
