Spaceship Earth point of lights installation - April 21 2021
Posted: Wednesday April 21, 2021 11:55am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

More than 75 'Points of Light' have now been installed on the exterior of Spaceship Earth as work continues on the "Beacons of Magic' lighting show.

The lights installed so far are on the eastern side, and are visible from near to Guest Relations, and from the far left of the main entrance area.

A high-reach boom lift is also now in position on the western side of Spaceship Earth using the recently closed-off walkway outside of Pin Traders and Camera Center.

Concept art of the lighting shows what we can expect when the effect goes live later this year. 

According to Imagineer Zach Riddley, "Her classic look will be maintained and accentuated through new colors and intensity in programmed expressions that extend into the new main entrance fountain and the entire World Celebration area."

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.

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.
