I’m happy to share that Made with Magic has officially arrived to World Showcase in Epcot. You may recall that these accessories allow guests to become a part of a show by lighting up in time with or in the same color scheme at select nighttime spectaculars. This time, Made with Magic items will light up at key moments as you travel from country to country in World Showcase.


I recently visited Epcot where the friendly cast members of World Showcase helped me welcome Made with Magic to our worldwide family.

Look for Made with Magic items in select merchandise locations around World Showcase or Mouse Gear at Epcot. You may also order items and have them shipped directly to your home using the free Shop Disney Parks Mobile app.


  • Are the Made with Magic ears the same as the Glow with the Show ears?

  • Thanks Steven,

    What I don’t understand from the video is how they will light up. Do they do any special patterns or colors or do they just turn on to the regular cycle only when you’re in World Showcase?

    • @Benjamin – The Made with Magic items will light up and change colors as you travel around World Showcase. They may change colors that are resminiscent of the particular country flag. They also may change patterns. When I was visiting Epcot the other night (as I seem to live there :), I saw them changing from country to country. In the video, the Cast Members from Japan Pavilion probably showcase best how this might work. I hope you get a chance to visit World Showcase soon and check it out for yourself.

  • Love how our USA representative is from the great state of Louisiana! 😀

  • Jessica, as long as they still have batteries they will work at any Disney park that has the technology.

    My question is, what exactly do they do at Epcot? The video doesn’t really explain much. Do they light up with the colors of each nation’s flag or is there something else/

    Do they work with Illuminations?

    • @Benjamin – Thank you. Made with Magic items will light up as you pass from country to country in World Showcase. They are not a part of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth at this time.

  • If we purchased our made with magic ears on last years trip, will they work with this new feature in Epcot when we return in February?

    • @Jessica – Yes! I hope you have a great trip.
