PHOTOS: Points of Light Illuminated on Spaceship Earth in EPCOT

This morning while waiting to enter the park, we noticed that several of the Points of Light added to Spaceship Earth recently were turned on. Take a look at our photos below:

This is likely a programming issue, and the lights were left on accidentally.

While not all of the lights were turned on, different colors can be seen including white and red. These were only visible on the underside of Spaceship Earth.

In this artist rendering, Spaceship Earth becomes a Beacon of Magic in EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. As part of “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” honoring Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary beginning Oct. 1, 2021, Spaceship Earth and other icons at each Walt Disney World theme park will come to life at night with their own EARidescent glow.

The lighting will debut by the time Walt Disney World celebrates it’s 50th anniversary on October 1, 2021, and will remain as a permanent fixture of the reimagined EPCOT.
