    Hi there! Are the Glow with the Show ear hats synchronized with nighttime spectaculars at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World?

    Hiya Gene,

    Welcome to planDisney. You have picked the perfect time of the year to visit Walt Disney World Resort! Not only will you be able to take part in The World's Most Magical Celebration, but the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will still be underway. You and your taste buds will be treated to a culinary extravaganza as you nibble and sip your way around The World Showcase, purchasing food and beverage options from six continents. If all that was not enough, the theme parks and resorts will be in the process of decorating for the holidays and you will be able to enjoy twinkling lights, beautifully decorated trees and more! 

    I was thrilled when the Glow with the Show technology made its way to Disney World a number of years ago. Our boys have definitely gotten their money's worth from their hats as they lit up in a myriad of colors in time to the fireworks and shows. While the items are no longer available, I am told previously purchased items should still be synchronized to keep time to the nighttime shows. The great news though is the technology is still in place and is being used with the recent launch of the MagicBand+. The bands will utilize the Glow with the Show technology to change colors, vibrate and keep time with the nighttime spectaculars. There are also additional features added to the MagicBand+ which will allow Guests to interact with a number of options throughout the theme parks including a chance to join the ranks of the famous Bounty Hunters and seek out your bounties on Batuu at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. The MagicBand+ is now available for purchase online or at most Disney World merchandise locations and there are so many fun designs, it was hard to pick just one! 

    I hope this information helps and you will be twinkling and glowing right along with the lights on your next visit. If you have any additional planning questions, please stop back and see me
