Spaceship Earth Lights Up in Red, White, & Blue for 4th of July Weekend

Spaceship Earth is dressed up for the Fourth of July, as hues of red, white, and blue emanate throughout EPCOT to celebrate Independence Day.

Fourth of July Colors on Spaceship Earth

Spaceship Earth, both an attraction and the primary icon (or weenie) of EPCOT, is adorned with countless LED “Points of Light,” which made their debut in 2021. Both bright and customizable, these lights can be used for all kinds of occasions and special nighttime presentations.

By the Disney100 centennial logo near the Creations Shop, we spotted this geodesic sphere sporting red, white, and blue — resembling the American flag as people around the country prepare to commemorate the 247th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence made by the Second Continental Congress in Philadelphia.

Close up, just past Guest Relations headed in the direction of the exit, we can see how much the lights twinkle.

Most recently, a newly-arranged Spectacle of Light show debuted during the 2023 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival, incorporating music from “Encanto.” We have a full video available below:
