Spaceship Earth point of lights installation - April 28 2021
Posted: Friday April 30, 2021 10:21am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The new 'Points of Light' installation is continuing at a rapid pace on the exterior of Spaceship Earth as work continues on the "Beacons of Magic' lighting show.

The lights are now clearly visible from the main entrance of the park on the northern side of Spaceship Earth.

They now wrap around almost the entire mid-section of Spaceship Earth, spanning the east, north and west sides.

While most of the lights are located in the middle sections, we still do not see any installed in the lower sections.

Concept art of the lighting shows what we can expect when the effect goes live later this year for the start of Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary celebrations.


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.
