After nearly 20 years of delighting Epcot guests through music, fireworks, fire torches and more, Disney has announced that “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” will be ending in the second half of next year. The Disney Parks Live Entertainment team is already busy creating new thrills to debut immediately following the conclusion of “IllumiNations,” continuing the tradition of nightly entertainment on the World Showcase Lagoon.
“IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth,” which is currently planned to run to the end of Summer 2019, has entertained millions of guests gathered around World Showcase Lagoon sharing the light and a story since it debuted in October 1999 as part of the Walt Disney World Millennium Celebration.
The all-new nighttime fireworks spectacular coming to Epcot’s World Showcase Lagoon will be part of Epcot’s evolution.
The new show joins several previously announced experiences coming to Epcot, including the “Guardians of the Galaxy” roller coaster attraction, a “Ratatouille”-inspired attraction in World Showcase, a new table-service restaurant adjacent to Mission: SPACE and much more!
Disney has not announced an exact end date yet, but we’ll keep you updated when an end date becomes available.
