IllumiNations, the nighttime fireworks spectacular that has been at Epcot for nearly 20 years, is ending September 30th with the new show Epcot Forever premiering October 1st.


The new Farewell merchandise arrived at Epcot yesterday.

The main logo for the merchandise features Mickey Mouse blowing out the World Showcase torch surrounded by fireworks. Of course, Mickey Mouse blowing out the torch is fitting because of the iconic opening of the show where the narrator blows out the torches at the end of the opening monologue.

The farewell collection can be found at Mouse Gear.

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

The official replacement for IllumiNations, yet unnamed, debuting in early 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 for one final time in March 2019:
