    Where can I buy the light up Mickey Ears that light up with the night time shows?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to planDisney, RJ. We're delighted to see you again! And we're so happy to hear you're planning another Walt Disney World Resort vacation. It's the very best kind, if you ask me!

     I think you're asking about the "Glow with the Show" Ear Hats that debuted at the Walt Disney World Resort several years ago. These fan-favorite accessories synchronized with nighttime spectaculars like Fantasmic! and the now-retired Wishes, making Guests part of the show! Unfortunately, the "Glow with the Show" Ear Hats are no longer available. I have seen them spotted on online marketplaces that sell used items, but my understanding is that the technology that makes synchronize with shows is now outdated. Not to fret! I have a few suggestions. 

     I recommend keeping your eye on the Disney Parks Blog. It's your best resource for news and updates about Disney Parks and destinations! If a new version of these Mickey Ear Hats is released between now and your visit, you'll see that announcement posted on the Disney Parks Blog.

     If a hat like "Glow with the Show" isn't available, I encourage you to purchase a MagicBand+. This newest band has all the capabilities of the original MagicBand, as well as color-changing lights, haptic vibrations, and gesture recognition. I especially love that my MagicBand+ syncs with my favorite nighttime spectacular, Happily Ever After!

     I also encourage you to check out the Disney Store online. While they don't currently offer "Glow with the Show" Ear Hats, they do offer an impressive selection of Mickey Ears. They regularly offer free shipping, making that Disney merchandise you have your eye on a no-brainer!

     I hope this was helpful, RJ. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation! As always, we'd love to help you plan a magical stay.
