Disneyland has once again announced plans to host an Annual Passholder “Glow with the Show” event, this time marking the debut of the high-tech ear hats’ interaction with Fantasmic! But unlike previous events in which the glowing Mickey ears were handed out freely, Disneyland is making this night BYOE: Bring Your Own Ears.
On Tuesday, August 28, 2012 from 10 p.m. – 12 a.m., a private viewing of Fantasmic! will take place at 11:30 p.m., the first time the “Glow With the Show” ear hats will interact by lighting up, blinking, and fading in time with the nighttime spectacular. Throughout the rest of the night, some nearby attractions, shops and food offerings will open.
But guests interested in, well, glowing with the show at this latest event will need to bring their own ears or purchase them for $25 each at the parks. Disneyland says attendees are not required to have hats to be allowed in, but the hats are “strongly encouraged for optimal viewing experience.”
Registration is open now for Disneyland Annual Passholders and up to 3 Passholder guests by simply visiting any ticket booth in the Esplanade between the two Disneyland theme parks. Passholders must present an active Annual Passport and a valid photo ID and will receive a voucher for admission. Attendees must be at least 18 years old to RSVP but the three guests accompanying the may be younger. Registration closes when all spots are full or at 10 p.m. (PDT) on Thursday, August 23, 2012 at the latest. No online or phone options for registering are available. It must be done in person.
More details can be found on the Disney Parks Blog.
The first “Glow With the Show” performance of Fantasmic! for all DIsneyland guests will be held on the evening of August 31.
