Disney announced that IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth will come to an end on September 30, 2019. The new nighttime spectacular, Epcot Forever, will debut October 1, 2019, on the World Showcase Lagoon at Epcot!
Epcot Forever is a limited-time show that will be a celebration of the past, present and future of Epcot. It is built around the magical soundtrack guests have come to know and love at the park. Noted conductor and composer, Don Harper, is producing all-new arrangements of classic Epcot tunes to weave into the soundtrack of ‘Epcot Forever.’
The new nighttime spectacular will feature fireworks, lighting, lasers and choreographed, and special effects kites. It will be accompanied by a stirring collection of songs that paints a colorful picture of Epcot.
IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth will end its 20-year run on September 30, 2019. Epcot Forever will run into 2020 before it makes way for the debut of the permanent epic Epcot nighttime spectacular as part of the park’s multi-year transformation. Disney has been making infrastructure enhancements to accommodate the permanent nighttime show.
