EPCOT’s Spaceship Earth Glow Up is Even Cooler Than We Thought

The EPCOT entrance has been undergoing a pretty big transformation over the past year.

Spaceship Earth

What started with a new grand entrance fountain, has now become an entirely new welcoming experience for park guests during the day and night. And, the transformation isn’t over just yet! Yesterday, we got a look at the new lighting that is being installed on Spaceship Earth for the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebrations and, today, we’re learning more about the technology that will make the park icon sparkle.

Spaceship Earth will be sparkling with shades of purple, blue, and green but it won’t be a projection. It is actual lights that Walt Disney Imagineering created exclusively for the celebrations!

Disney Parks shared a behind-the-scenes look at the new lighting technology. The lights are being installed directly onto Spaceship Earth and they will project light outwards AND on the sides to shine across the entirety of the park icon.
