Projection Testing Taking Place on Cinderella Castle, Possible Preview of Beacons of Magic

As Disney prepares for a special 50th Anniversary celebration to be presented on ABC on October 1, 2021, testing was taking place last night ahead of filming for the special. While the projections seen below are probably going to only be used during the special, we may have a sneak peek at the Beacons of Magic projection effect that will take place nightly at Magic Kingdom.

First, here’s a look at concept art for the Beacons of Magic projection effect coming to Cinderella Castle on October 1, 2021.

Now, here’s a look at what could be the projection effect as it was tested last night.

Here’s a look at other projection looks tested on Cinderella Castle.

Whether or not any of these projection effects are seen by the average guest when The World’s Most Magical Celebration kicks off October 1, 2021 remains to be seen.
