All four theme parks will feature new visitor experiences. And Cinderella’s Castle and Epcot’s Spaceship Earth will get new decorations. 

Even Mickey and Minnie will get new looks to correspond with the “Ear-idescence." The parks promise decorations that, "shimmer and sparkle all day and into the night."
