The transformation of Spaceship Earth into a giant American flag is a sight to behold, and is a fitting tribute for the Fourth of July. Spaceship Earth displaying the colors of the American flag serves as a great backdrop for family photos and selfies, and is a great way to capture the essence of the Fourth of July celebrations at EPCOT!
