With three weeks to go until The World’s Most Magical Celebration kicks off to celebrate Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, crews continue to work on the Spaceship Earth Points of Light at EPCOT.
Beacons of Magic
As part of the 18-month celebration for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, four “icons” within the Walt Disney World theme parks will receive additional magic in the form of projection effects to serve as Beacons of Magic. Magical moments will happen at Cinderella Castle, Tower of Terror, Tree of Life, and Spaceship Earth during the 50th Anniversary celebrations.
Points of Light
While the Beacons of Magic are a 50th Anniversary offering, there is a secondary bit of work taking place on Spaceship Earth called the Points of Light. These permanent light installations on the exterior of Spaceship Earth will allow the structure to come to life nightly beyond the 50th Anniversary celebrations. It’s the Points of Light that we’re concerned with in this article.
As you can see in the video below captured by Facebook user Marlene Palacios, Disney was working through some early-morning testing of the Points of Light yesterday at EPCOT. The test appears to go through a few standard color scenarios such as red, blue, green, and two types of white displays – one without “connections” and one with connections.
Here are some stills from the video.
