PHOTOS: 50th Anniversary “Beacons of Magic” Lighting on All Four Walt Disney World Park Icons

Only three days away from the start of “The World’s Most Magical Celebration“, Disney has shared a look at all four park icons as “Beacons of Magic”, the centerpieces of the 18-month event.


In a new behind-the-scenes video promoting ABC’s TV special “The Most Magical Story on Earth: 50 Years of Walt Disney World”, we’re given a look at Cinderella Castle lit up with new, colorful projections.


We’re also given a look at the castle lit up in a sparkling, golden pattern.


At EPCOT, we’re given another look at the new Points of Light in use on Spaceship Earth, which have been shared a few times already.


The Hollywood Tower Hotel receives a colorful makeover as well, although it doesn’t look much different from its “Hollywood Holiday Tower Hotel” form.


Finally, Walt Disney World’s newest park icon, the Tree of Life, will also be bathed in colorful light and projections to transform it into a “Beacon of Magic”.
