New “Beacons of Magic” Concept Art Released for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary

Hi everyone!

Walt Disney World released new concept art for the “Beacons of Magic” today for The World’s Most Magical Celebration. The artwork was part of the announcement for the new 50th Anniversary anthem. Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom all will offer dazzling lighting packages as part of the 18-month celebration.

Here is a look at the new Magic Kingdom concept art, followed by the one we originally posted from Disney.

This was the first concept art we had posted a couple of months ago. Disney says of this Beacon of Magic,”Cinderella Castle will illuminate Magic Kingdom with a dazzling radiance that sparkles with pixie dust.”


Disney says of 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.”

Disney says of Disney’s Animal Kingdom park:  “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. and adventure.”

Disney says of Disney’s Hollywood Studios: “The Hollywood Tower Hotel at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be awash in a brilliance evoking the golden age of imagination and adventure.”

I look forward to seeing the beautiful Beacons of Magic at Walt Disney World in just under 50 days!
