As part of Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, each park’s icon will undergo a magical transformation at night with a magical lighting package. Disney is calling these Beacons of Magic, and we got our first glimpse at what it will look like in action.

Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley has become a necessary follow for Disney World fans on Instagram, because he’s been sharing great pictures previewing upcoming developments at the theme parks. Today, he shared this gorgeous look at Spaceship Earth.

Beacon of Magic at Epcot

Here’s what Zach had to say about the new lighting for Epcot’s icon:

“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!”

Personally, I think this looks incredible, and I hope that the lighting effects become a permanent addition to the parks. Here’What do you think about Spaceship Earth’s new nighttime look?
