NEW: ‘Rainbow Connection’ Beacons of Light Show for Festival of the Arts
Reports came in that a new Muppets Rainbow Connection Beacons of Light Show would be making its debut at EPCOT this evening to celebrate the start of the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. MickeyBloggers rushed to the front of the park to see if we could capture this moment in person and we’re excited to pass this first look on to you!
The exciting light display on Spaceship Earth first came to our attention when Disney Imagineering took to Instagram today to give us a preview. We’ll share it with you below:

Created to celebrate the artistry of the world around us during the festival as well as the important role that color and the imagination play ‘Rainbow Connection’ was added as the perfect complement to the stunning new rainbow display at Spaceship Earth.
Here are a few photos Greg and Elyssa took:
All we can say is that this evening experience is absolutely stunning.
Spaceship Earth lit up in an array of beautiful rainbow colors.
The rainbow moved vertically around the entirety of Spaceship Earth.
Rainbow Connection was sung by Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.
Above is an image of the display in front of the new fountain.
These next images really give us a beautiful look at and all of the points of light.
We are so smitten with all of the dazzling details.
We aren’t sure if many of the guests knew that the Rainbow Connection was starting this evening. Its definitely worth checking out!
The EPCOT International Festival of the Arts runs until February 21st.
Throughout that time, visitors to EPCOT can enjoy special art exhibits, sample treats at the food booths, pick up new merchandise and so much more.
Above you can see how the lighting extended down the sides of the plaza building.
The pylons look absolutely beautiful.
Look at these beautiful hues of pink, orange and blue.
Greg captured a video which we’ll post so that you can see the musical number in its entirety.
In the meantime we hope you enjoy these beautiful images.
At times during the display different areas of Spaceship Earth flickered like starlight.
Below are some beautiful hues of blue.
There’s also silver.
And here’s another look at the beautiful rainbows.
It was so vibrant that these pictures do not do it justice.
The way that it lit up the entire plaza was magnificent.
Be sure to check out the rest of our Festival of the Arts coverage including a look at the Festival Passports, food booths, chalk art and so much more.
We love the idea of tying the Muppets in with Festival of the Arts and hope we see more of that in the years to come.
If you’ll be at EPCOT in the weeks ahead, definitely head to the front of the park at sundown to check out the Beacons of Light display.
Its hard not to get sentimental.
Here’s a look at the video of this evenings performance:
