Epcot Forever!

IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth has had a fantastic 20-year run, and I’m sad to see it go. The fireworks, the lights, and the lasers will take a final performance on September 30th, 2019, and I know I’m in the works of planning a trip to get one last look.

October 1st, 2019 Epcot Forever will make its debut! This is going to be a filler show that will only last until 2020, which means I’ll have to start planning another trip. (Like that would bother me).

Concept art.

Epcot Forever will be a showcase of the past, present, and future of Epcot. According to Alan Bruun, show director of Disney Parks Live Entertainment, “Music is the star of the show.” Music for me is such a big part of all the parks certain songs create such a magical connection to a place in time you never want to forget.

From the new show, you can expect more lasers, fireworks and lighting with an addition of special effect choreographed kites. The concept art is enough to make me book another trip. I was worried it would be a little too animated since they seem to be adding a lot of that to the World Showcase, but that’s a whole different blog post.
