Two more weeks! Today we have a beautiful photo to share of the Beacon of Magic transformation of Spaceship Earth. What do you think of it?!
Beacons of Magic
Along with other park icons, Spaceship Earth is receiving a Beacons of Magic transformation to celebrate Disney World’s 50th anniversary. Cinderella Castle has been receiving hers for over a year now, and we have enjoyed watching the transformation slowly take shape.
Spaceship Earth’s transformation is now complete but will not debut until October 1. And if you’re counting down like I am, that’s 14 days away!
We do have a sneak peek to share with you from Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley. He is one of the main Imagineers leading the multi-year transformation of Epcot! We have seen his Space 220, Creations Shop, and Club Cool previews in recent weeks.
See the photo above for what the transformation looks like!
He shares on Instagram:
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!
See you in the (near) future!!
I (Monica) absolutely love this! Spaceship Earth looks stunning. I think it looks better than the preview they shared with us earlier this year. What do you think of it? Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook!
