VIDEO: Spaceship Earth Light Shimmers as Testing is Performed Before October 1st
As part of the 50th anniversary celebration at EPCOT, Spaceship Earth will be getting a new dazzling makeover. Engineers have worked tirelessly to add amazing new light enhancements for guests’ enjoyment starting on October 1st. Beacons of Magic, the title for the evening enhancements that will illuminate each of the four Walt Disney World theme parks’ welcoming main structures, will soon dazzle Spaceship Earth. Enjoy a little sneak peek a friend sent us!

Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Portfolio Executive Zach Riddley took to Instagram to say “This first-look image actually gives you a glimpse into the near future when the night will come alive in an entirely new way with this Beacon of Magic. Inspired by past and future, the classic Spaceship Earth color gradients will be rendered richer by our new lighting fixtures, evoking twinkling starlight in an evening sky”.
The icon of the park will have glimmering lights with a cascading effect that shimmers all around the ball.
The twinkling lights will provide a true Beacon of Magic for guests to experience at night time.
I can’t wait to see it in person! Will you be visiting the parks during the 50th anniversary celebration?
