EPCOT new main entrance color outline lights
Posted: Thursday March 4, 2021 7:37pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Today was a big day for EPCOT'S main entrance, with an all new soundtrack, the debut of the park's attraction icon flags and finally this evening the new lighting package for the perimeter buildings.

Surrounding the entrance area, the lighting outlines the roofline in a rainbow of color using new LED lighting with 3000 programmable zones that enable moving light effects along the more than 1200ft long strip.

There are a number of different sequences, with shades of blue, red and purple along with chasing effects.

The lights are most striking when fully dark, but can also be seen at dusk.

We have to wait until later in the year to see the new Spaceship Earth lighting effects, which will see a more elaborate use of light and music, but the new lights already on show bring an updated look to the area that is sure to be appreciated by guests.

When I saw that I was hoping it meant the palms they were talking about flanked SSE just like when the park opened. I'm glad they're back near the line for SSE though, but got my hopes up too quick.

What happens when the Epcot sun gets into the Epcot black hole next door. UOEs revenge!

So that's how they are going to hide the barges and stargate, by blinding you upon entry!

Looks like half a Pepsi logo. Thankfully Club Cool is a Coke thing, don't want anyone to get any ideas...

Yeah the camera has just blown all that out. Don’t think any conclusion can be made about anything from that shot, other than half of them turn on lol

Disney has built the ultimate weapon, and it's been right in front of us this whole time...

Led's at full power are bright as hell... especially if they have a narrow lens.
