    Is there anywhere I can see spaceship earth lit up without going into Epcot?

    Welcome to planDisney, Joni! EPCOT is my favorite Theme Park at Walt Disney World Resort, and the light show on Spaceship Earth adds some extra special magic to the evenings there. I think it is best seen from inside EPCOT, but I've got a great idea of how you can see it without entering, and I'm happy to share it with you. 

    Joni, I think the best way for you to see Spaceship Earth at night without entering EPCOT is to take a ride on the monorail. The monorail loop actually enters EPCOT and takes a spin around Spaceship Earth! You'll be able to get a close-up look at the gorgeous light show without using a ticket and entering through the gates. The EPCOT monorail line starts at the Transportation and Ticket Center, so make your way there and hop on. It will take you on a direct ride to EPCOT, and you'll get a bird's eye view of World Celebration, World Discovery, and World Nature. The monorail will stop in front of EPCOT to let guests on and off, but it runs in a loop to the Transportation and Ticket Center, so you can stay on and ride as many times as you want.

    Have a magical day, Joni!
