Walt Disney World monorails have an all new glowing lighting effect for "The World's Most Magical Celebration."

Each monorail has been equipped with underside lighting, matching the trains color.

The lighting effect will remain throughout the 18 month 50th anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World.

Watch the video below for a look at monorail blue and monorail green passing through EPCOT. (4K YouTube version)

That's pretty awesome. I totally creeped a friend out adding them to a Snow White once. I use photoshop for work but it's also a lot of fun to play with.

Had to add my SIL to a family reunion photo a while ago. Much fun ensued as I annoyed my MIL by placing my SIL's face on random people in the photo. 🤣

Truth! Though we made the comments even last summer that it looks better in photos even without an edit. I still don't like the coloring though but it does look good in pics comparatively

Nothing that Photoshop can't fix!

In person it looks pretty pink still. Just photographs better than it looks IMO.

They'll probably just let the sun bleach out the pink to match the original grey/white. Why pay a crew to paint it when mother nature will do it for free?

Mercifully, the pink seems to have faded a bit anyway, at least if the photos are anything to go by. I still think they should darken the blue to better match the original concept art, which I for one really liked.

#GetRidOfThePink I can get behind that. :)

Just pull a Sorcerer Wand at Epcot and write “Magic Kingdom” or, to be safer, “Disney” in the medallion.

Maybe they'll get lazy and just replace the 50th medallion with a 100

I don’t believe that’s the plan but it won’t look very pink by then…

Anyone have any insight as to whether or not they will repaint the castle and get rid of the pink after the 50th celebration is over?

My family still laughs about this…after the first time watching other guests lean in and then jump in their seats! 😂
