Disney has today announced that 'Glow with the Show' Ears are coming to Walt Disney World starting next month at Disney's Hollywood Studios Fantasmic!

For those of you who are not familiar with the 'Glow with the Show' Ears - they are mouse ear hats with onboard electronics that light up in sync with a show to make the audience part of the effect. 

They first debuted in Disneyland last year where they were a huge hit with guests watching World of Color (see video below) and sell for $25 each.

Fantasmic! will be the very first Walt Disney World show to use the technology, beginning on October 15 2013. "Technology allows the Ear hats to dance and play along with each musical and illuminated sequence. They truly bring the show's environment out of the lagoon and the sky, and into the audience in an amazing and dazzling new way, making our guests truly Glow With the Show," said Dara Trujillo, manager of merchandise marketing, communication, synergy and integration, Walt Disney World Resort.

From October 19, Wishes and Celebrate the Magic will also make use of the hats. Later, the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights and Holiday Wishes will join in. 

You will be able to buy the hats for $25 from select stores at the Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios.
