IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth has been taking place nightly in Epcot for nearly 20 years. It’s a favorite for a lot of guests and a must-see for each trip, but it will be coming to an end next year.
Disney has announced that at the end of summer 2019, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth will have it’s final show. The show started in October 1999 as part of the Walt Disney World Millennium Celebration and has been playing nightly ever since. The good thing is Disney gave guests a nice warning about this change, there’s almost a year to see this show before it ends.
There’s no word yet on what will be replacing IllumiNations, but Disney says that “the all-new nighttime fireworks spectacular coming to Epcot’s World Showcase Lagoon will be part of the park’s exciting evolution.” So it’s hard to tell what it’s going to be from that description, but Disney always does a great job with nighttime spectaculars.
I’m sad that IllumiNations is going away, I’ve always loved this show, but I’m excited to see what is next. How do you feel about this change?
