Disney Confirms Addition of Lights Covering Spaceship Earth Exterior for Permanent New Nighttime Look

At EPCOT, new lights will shine across the reflective panels of Spaceship Earth, connecting to one another and resembling stars in a nighttime sky.

This permanent new lighting will continue beyond “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” as a defining feature of the park.

You may recall that Imagineers talked about the new nighttime lighting briefly a few months ago. Permits have also been filed for the work, but no start date for the light installation has been indicated yet.
