This first-look image provides a glimpse into the near future when the night will come alive in an entirely new way at EPCOT when Spaceship Earth becomes a Beacon of Magic at night at Walt Disney World Resort.

Inspired by the past and the future, the classic Spaceship Earth color gradients will be rendered richer by new lighting fixtures evoking twinkling starlight in an evening sky. The Beacon of Magic will debut on Oct. 1, 2021, as part of the kickoff for the 50th-anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World Resort.

Each of the icons at Disney’s four theme parks will transform into what Disney is calling “Beacons of Magic” at night, coming to life in different ways.
