What Are the Beacons of Magic?
For the 50th anniversary, Disney is transforming the park icons of all four parks. They are meant to “beckon … all to come and celebrate.”
Specifically, the transformations include:
- Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom
- Spaceship Earth at EPCOT
- Hollywood Tower Hotel at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
- The Tree of Life at Animal Kingdom
