Made with Magic Nighttime Fun

Made with Magic Interactive Nighttime Show Fun at Walt Disney World and Disneyland

Guests can now become a part of the show, with the “Made With Magic” interactive nighttime show merchandise. These interactive products were previously known as “Glow with the Show” and were only available as ear hats. The color-changing interactive items include a Sorcerer Mickey wand (which offers an additional function of changing the light patterns of other “Made with Magic” products), a Mickey Mouse glove, a Minnie Mouse headband and Mickey ear hats. These items will interact with many of the different shows around Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Guests can watch in wonder as these technologically advanced products have been programmed to change color and blink in time to the music.

“Made with Magic” items have a few different modes of operation:

  • Show mode: Runs when a hat is in close proximity to a show; the hat prioritizes commands and works interactively with the show.
  • Idle mode: Runs when the hat is on but not in close proximity to a show or other hats; the ears randomly change colors until they are turned off.
  • Ear-to-Ear mode: Runs when the hat is in close proximity (about 36 inches) to another hat; hats synchronize the color to be the same and follow the same patterns.
  • The Sorcerer Mickey wand will have multiple light-up functions and will give guests the ability to change the light patterns of other Made with Magic items.
  • At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, a special Rivers of Light Totem Wand will have multiple light-up functions and will give guests the ability to change the light patterns of other Made with Magic items.

“Made with Magic” items currently work with many of Disney’s nighttime extravaganzas.
