During last night’s live stream of “Illuminations: Reflections of Earth,” Disney made some anticipated announcements. The long running Epcot nighttime spectacular is coming to an end this year, and we now have an end date.
Disney has announced that the “Illuminations: Reflections of Earth” will have its final show on September 30, 2019. So if you are a fan of this show you have a bit of time to get in a last visit to watch. It’s bittersweet for a lot of fans though. I know I’m excited to see what the new show will be like, but I am sad to see “Illuminations” go.
There will not be a gap between shows, which is good news. So on October 1, 2019 “Epcot Forever” will debut. This is a limited time show and will have fireworks, music, lighting, lasers, and choreographed, special effects kites. If you check out the video below you will see the kites and they look pretty cool. Disney describes this show as:
“Featuring a stirring collection of songs that paint a colorful picture of the park, this nighttime extravaganza will offer both a trip down memory lane and a look towards the future and all the magical possibilities still to come.”
For a look at the show, watch Disney’s video below.
The show sounds like it’s going to be a fun one to watch. I’m really interested to see those special effects kites!
While “Epcot Forever” is a limited-time show, it will continue into 2020. At some point next year Disney will introduce their next nighttime show for Epcot. No end date was announced for “Epcot Forever,” but we’ll keep you posted when it is announced.
Are you excited for this new show?
