March 2019: Watching IllumiNations for the last time!

Disney Parks announced this week that IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth will have its final show on September 30, 2019.  It premiered on October 1, 1999.

The new fireworks show called Epcot Forever will debut at 9pm on October 1, 2019.

This is a temporary fireworks show until the new IllumiNations replacement show premieres in early 2020.

The official replacement for IllumiNations, yet unnamed, will debut in 2020 and will feature massive floating set pieces, custom-built LED panels, choreographed fountains, lights, pyrotechnics, and lasers. The yet-unnamed show will celebrate how Disney music inspires people around the world.


We watched IllumiNations one final time last month:

 We’ve written two books about our time working at Disney World.

Both are available on Amazon.com: Two Girls and a Mouse Tale and Adventures in the Animal Kingdom.
