And while we’re busy getting you food reviews of EVERY SINGLE food booth, we’re also covering the merchandise, entertainment, and more while we’re there. But we just found out about something BEAUTIFUL coming to the festival this year.
Imagineer Zach Riddley took to Instagram to share that Spaceship Earth will be celebrating the festival in its own magical way — it’s going to light up like a rainbow during festival nights! He wrote, “Spaceship Earth will debut a brand-new light show that will feature our color and rainbow motifs seen throughout the festival imagery.” Now look at how beautiful it’s going to be!
And that’s not all — the rainbow light show will be accompanied by The Muppets’ “Rainbow Connection” — okay, WE ARE SO GOING TO CRY. Now sing along with us: “Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection. The lovers, the dreamers and me…” 😭😭😭
He also wrote, “A huge congratulations to our team of Imagineers for dreaming this up and bringing it to life for our Guests and fans of The Muppets to enjoy nightly throughout the duration of the festival!” And here’s a look at Spaceship Earth in all of its rainbow beauty!
The colors of the rainbow spread across Spaceship Earth in one bold stripe:
Like the variations we’ve seen in the past, Spaceship Earth rotates through several different light and color patterns.
Just when we thought it couldn’t get any MORE perfect, we were blown away once again.
Figment approves of the new rainbow light pattern, too.
And here’s a video with the Muppets singing in the background!
