Disney Imagineer Shares First Look at New Spaceship Earth Lighting

Spaceship Earth is getting a display transformation for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebration! Disney Imagineers are hard at work now installing the new lighting package on the park icon in preparation. Disney Imagineer, Zach Riddley, has provided a first look at the progress with details and photos below!

As shared by Imagineer, Zach Riddley, via Instagram: “A few weeks ago we shared our exciting plans for new Spaceship Earth lighting debuting Oct. 1, 2021 as a Beacon of Magic during the 50th anniversary celebration @WaltDisneyWorld. Today I’m excited to give you a first look at one of the points of light, as overnight our team test fit the very first of these fixtures before we start installing at the top and working our way down! Our team at Imagineering has been hard at work innovating the design and technology for this poetic and inspirational lighting concept. And we’ve had to get quite ingenious in how we go about installing these new fixtures and all the high-tech systems so that they seamlessly integrate with the iconic profile of Spaceship Earth. There is a lot more work ahead as we continue installation and ready for testing, but I couldn’t wait to share with you that we’ve begun. Continue to follow along here as we share more of our progress and the way our team developed and engineered this concept into being.”
