This week, “Fantasmic!” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios became the first Walt Disney World Resort Entertainment offering to debut the addition of “Glow With the Show” ear technology. And we shared a glimpse of the night with Disney Parks Blog readers.

“Glow With the Show” ears also debuted last night at Magic Kingdom Park (October 19), during the “Celebrate the Magic” nighttime projection show and “Wishes” fireworks.

  • @Rebecca, In California they used to work with Cars Land when they turn all of the neon lights on and they were testing them with Fantasmic over there last year… not sure if they still use the ears with those two. At the Fantasmic in florida we were told they will work with Wishes, Celebrate the Magic and Osbourne lights at Christmas and then Holiday Wishes. But also Disneyland Paris Dreams nighttime show.

  • When does Disney change over from Fall Decorations to Christmas ? I will be down there the week before Thanksgiving. I was hoping to see the Fall decorations .

  • I love these ears!!!! I know they work at Disneyland CA during the World of Color show, but what other shows do they work on? Do they work on any rides? And if I bought them in Disneyland CA would they work with the shows in Walt Disney World?

  • Just wanted to say how fantastic the blog is. It’s a great insight into the activity in the parks and superb to help plan future trips.

    Keep up the great work!
