“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,” wrote Riddley.

Riddley also shared that the overnight team was test fitting the light fixtures onto Spaceship Earth before they begin installing them. When they do install the fixtures, it will happen from the top down!

We can’t wait to see Spaceship Earth in all its EARidescent glory this fall! Will you be there during the anniversary celebration?
