FIRST LOOK: Spaceship Earth Becomes a “Beacon of Magic”

Imagineer Zach Riddley shared a first look this morning at Spaceship Earth’s new nighttime look.

Riddley had this to say:

We are only a few weeks away from our stunning reveal of our new Spaceship Earth lighting as part of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration. As I shared recently, our Imagineers are working behind the scenes to finalize the programming of this experience.

The artistry is inspired by the voice of Spaceship Earth:

“Like a grand and miraculous spaceship, our planet has sailed through the universe of time …

… While no one knows for sure what we’ll see or do, I do know it will be quite an adventure—an adventure that we’ll take and make together. See you in the future!”

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.

This is visual poetry and will forever change the way we experience EPCOT.

I can’t wait for everyone to see when this experience officially launches on October 1st!
