Disney Glow With the Show Ear Hat

Disney's new Ear Hats contain Mickey Mouse ears that glow and change colors along with certain Disney shows, such as the World of Color. The colorful hats turn the audience into part of the show. Disney says the Ear Hats also interact with other elements throughout Disney California Adventure Park, including locations within the new Cars Land.

Disney Creative Entertainment Technical Director, Chuck Davis, says the hats have LEDs in the ears. The hats become part of the "World of Color" show. Davis also says the hats have serial numbers, which enables Disney to create unique effects during the show. Take a look:
