The 50th anniversary celebration at Walt Disney World kicks off October 1st, 2021! Disney made some announcements today for what will be “The World’s Most Magical Celebration”. One of those announcements is that special projections called “Beacons of Magic” will be included for the four park icons – Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom; Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom; The Hollywood Tower Hotel at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and most notably, the Spaceship Earth lighting at EPCOT will be permanent – which we knew, but there is now concept art. Take a look at the video and then the concept art below.
Beacons of Magic at All Four Walt Disney World Theme Parks
As part of “The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” icons at each Walt Disney World theme park will transform into magnificent Beacons of Magic at night, coming to life with their own EARidescent glow.
Cinderella Castle will illuminate Magic Kingdom with a dazzling radiance that sparkles with pixie dust.
At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, a warm light will emanate from the Tree of Life as magical fireflies gather to usher in the magic of nature.
The Hollywood Tower Hotel at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be awash in a brilliance evoking the golden age of imagination and adventure.
And at EPCOT, new lights will shine across the reflective panels of Spaceship Earth, connecting to one another in a symbol of optimism resembling stars in a nighttime sky. The iconic structure’s permanent new lighting will continue beyond “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” as a defining feature of the park.
