    Disney Parks Blog Article: Are You Ready to

    One of my favorite parts of the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort is wrapping up a day in the park with the spectacular. And this year, the Creative Entertainment team has made that show even more special by incorporating the popular . Disneyland park guests will be able to become part of the performance, with visions of sugarplums literally dancing on their heads!World of ColorFantasmic!
    First things first: the wording of this certainly makes it sound like the Christmas party is NOT a hard-ticketed event. Time to rejoice?

    Secondly: how do you feel about the GwtS ears being used with fireworks? There was a lot of skepticism when it came to Fantasmic! but many here did say that it wasn't too obtrusive and may have actually accented the show well. Will the narrow corridor that Main Street USA is help with the effect of the ears? Is Disneyland investing too much into this project? Will the ears explode when they come in contact with the snow after the fireworks? Discuss!

        The hard ticketed stuff was not going to happen until Christmas 2013, so that could still very well be in the works. :blush:

            They'll do anything to sell more of those over-priced ears.

              Honestly, I don't even notice the ears during WOC - I'm too immersed in the experience of the show! Haven't seen them during F! though...

                I think the ears are very cool to see. However they aren't nessecarily an enhancement to shows, and are somewhat a show of thier own.

                When they get more popula,r as they will with more opportunities to use them and the word gets around about them, it will be nice, but I think there may be a tipping point where they could be annoying. Granted this is my opinion and I go a lot, I may want to go to shows to see the show, but for people who visit rarely it may be awesome to see tons of glowing ears.

                  I did think it was funny the article describes them as popular. I mean, I'm sure they have some small market right now, but I wouldn't call them popular in terms of good sellers.

                  I think they'd be a little annoying if there are only a handful of ears flashing in time with music. It certainly wouldn't be an enhancement. But having a sea of ears in front of you and watching the fireworks from the end of Main Street? Completely magical. That's the kind of experience I hope new-comers to Disneyland have.

                        That's probably because they're not there. Last time I watched WoC I looked around and could only spot two people wearing them from where I was standing.

                            I hope this really goes through (tho it seems a little late already), I would totally go again since I missed the Fantasmic! one.

                              Why aren't all the crowd-control people wearing them? That would beef up the presence at WoC, F! and now the fireworks.

                              I'm still surprised that they introduced GWTS with only one product. Their many hat designs in their many hat shops demonstrate how wildly varied guests are in their hat choices. But with GWTS it's that one hat or nothing.

                                some were wearing them when I went.

                                agree they're ugly. I'd buy if they had more variety.

                                Only a few we're wearing at WOC this week.

                                  Post on the Disneyland AP page, so this may or may not refer to APHs only.

                                  tomorrow evening at the 8:45pm show (subject to weather conditions). A reserved viewing area will be available on Main Street, U.S.A., for a limited number of guests who bring their "Glow With the Show" Ears.

                                  Please bring your Ears and your Theme Park ticket to the Main Street Opera House beginning at 3 pm that afternoon for a wristband for admission to the reserved viewing area. Spaces are limited and the event is subject to change or cancellation without notice.

                                    Yeah, I'm talking about when they were wearing them; haven't seen WOC in a while...

                                      It's happening today! Just got into the park and there was a group of CM's getting set up near Lincoln theater. they said the wrist bands would not be available until 3pm but to come check back then. They would not officially say but i bet the reserved area is in front of the castle somewhere. see you all there!
