This week on the Disney Parks Blog, we shared some amazing shots from the debut of “Glow With the Show” here at Walt Disney World Resort, which debuted at “Fantasmic!” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on October 15.

‘Glow With The Show’ Ears Illuminate 'Fantasmic!' at Disney's Hollywood Studios

“Glow With The Show” will make another milestone later tonight when the ears are added to the “Celebrate the Magic” projection show and “Wishes” fireworks at Magic Kingdom Park.

Speaking of things to celebrate, Halloween celebrations are now underway at Disney Parks around the world. Earlier this week we shared a look at Disney’s Haunted Halloween celebration at Hong Kong Disneyland. The image below of the Chernabog from “Fantasia” in front of the park’s castle is one of my favorite shots from their celebration this year. Click through the gallery below for more from this park!

  • My wife and I were there on the night of the debut of GWTS for Fantasmic. We didn’t know this was the night they were celebrating the 15th anniversary of the show and introducing the glow ears and coincidentally, we were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary!!! It was amazing!!!! Since the show was being filmed from the center section, Mickey decided to give these folks FREE ears. Even though we were in the next section over, a kind and gracious cast member treated us both to some ears too once he found out about our 15th anniversary. Thx so much. The show has been enhanced without taking anything away from it!!! Can’t wait to see this technology introduced in other areas. My family joked that someday the bus trasportaion system might have its own GWTS on your way back to your resort at night. LOL

  • I bought “Glow With the Show” ears last summer in Disneyland. They were so much fun at World of Color, Fantasmic, the Mad T Party, and The Fantasy in the Sky Fireworks. Will those “Glow With the Show” ears work in Disney World now when I go there this summer, or am I going to have to buy another pair?

    • @Aimee – This is Steven from Disney Theme Park Merchandise. The Glow with the Show Ears you got at Disneyland Resort will also work at Walt Disney World Resort.

  • This will be my very first negative comment. 🙁

    While I love the cute ears….I have great concerns that hundreds of extra lights will detract from this wonderful show. I know I find it annoying when people hold up their video camera and dozens of bright screen light detract from my view….and now you’re adding hundreds more lights in the form of ears. Will I see any of the show or have my eyes diverted to the lights in the audience.

    I sincerely hope I’m wrong. We’ll be “Home” in November so I’m hoping to be proven wrong then! And I’ll be watching for comments from those that were there this week (the lucky dogs!)
