I rode space mountain a couple weeks ago with someone who had glow with the show ears on and it was really cool! The track in front kept changing colors.
The lights from his ears bounced off the grey-ish track or they have lights in the ride (newly installed) to work/interact with the ears?
I'm not sure how I feel about this no matter what the answer is, but I will withold judgment until I see it with my own eyes, or a HQ vid.
Oy! This was what I was hinting at when I mentioned that I dunno how I feel about this. I could see this making the attraction 10,000X less fun (ok, this is an exageration! :) ) But if it isn't part of the show FX for Space, I really would like them to turn the hats off. This is my gut reaction. Maybe it looks cool and I should wait to see it.
Idk how it was on because I thought they are supposed to turn off, but the kid's ears were on. It made the ride scarier because you could see some more of the ride. It didn't light up the entire place, since their ears were doing the fade in/ fade out animation.
It's not just the GwtS ears. I rode Space Mountain with a family of 4 who were wearing those glow scarves they were selling from the ODV carts this winter. I was grumbling at first, but I actually liked seeing how close the tracks were. It'll probably be the closest I get to riding with the lights on.
(Also, I've been on Pirates with a group wearing those glow in the dark necklaces they sell from the ODV carts. That was the worst.)
