At last, after nearly 20 years, EPCOT will receive a new fireworks spectacular show! IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth will be ending on the latter half of next year and a new fireworks show will be introduced at World Showcase Lagoon. The Disney Parks Live Entertainment team is working on a brand new nighttime show filled with new music, fireworks, projections and more!
IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth debuted in October 1999 as part of Walt Disney World Millennium Celebration. It has delighted park guests nightly with fireworks, music, torches and more. IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is slated to run till the end of summer 2019.
Epcot is going through a multi-year transformation with new experiences, new attractions, and more. The new nighttime spectacular will be part of the park’s evolution while keeping true to the original vision to the park.
Some of the new experiences that will be coming to Epcot include the new Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster, a Ratatouille attraction in France at the World Showcase, a new table-service restaurant next to Mission: SPACE and so much more!
Over at Magic Kingdom ‘Happily Ever After’ nighttime spectacular replaced ‘Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams’ in May 2017. ‘Happily Ever After’ was well-received by all and continues to be a not-to-be missed show! Many, us included, have been longing for a new nighttime spectacular show to replace IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. Disney has finally heard its fans and will grant us with a new show. We are sure that it will be a hit!
We cannot wait to hear more about the new nighttime show that will be coming to the World Showcase Lagoon at Epcot! What do you all think of this news?
