PHOTOS: See Spaceship Earth Transformed Into a Beacon of Magic at EPCOT for the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary

All four Walt Disney World theme park icons are transforming to celebrate the 50th anniversary this October 1, but Spaceship Earth debuted its new look as a Beacon of Magic early this evening.

The points of light installed around the geodesic dome bring the Beacon of Magic to life.

After Harmonious, Spaceship Earth lit up in its classic nighttime colors with the additions of the points of light.

It was pretty cool to be there tonight and hear everyone gasp and cheer at that part. I was just starting the trek towards IG for the boat when the ball changed colors. And Harmonious was excellent, best I’ve seen there since 2010.

Hmmm, I’m torn between the old and new look. It seems it won’t be the same taking photos, now that it’s just a ball of LED looking lights. I think it slightly takes away from it’s ICONIC look. I suppose I’ll have to see it in person.
