Well, as we all know, good things must come to an end, and after 20 years, I think Illuminations has had quite a good run. Illuminations: Reflections of Earth last date has been announced for September 30.
The following day, October 1, Guests will be able to see the brand new limited-time show, Epcot Forever will debut. That’s just in time for the anniversary of the park, which is also October 1.
The new show, Epcot Forever will celebrate the 37-year history of the park with fireworks, lasers and lighting effects set to a soundtrack of Epcot songs we know and love. Epcot Forever will include special effects-enabled kites that will be able to showcase airborne choreography. The kites will be illuminated and will be controlled by two-man teams aboard Jet Skis. The show will use of eight Jet Skis, with a driver and kite performer aboard each one of them. The movement of the Jet Skis will also create the wind required to keep the kites flying in the sky.
Epcot Forever will run into 2020, when it will be replaced by the next epic nighttime extravaganza makes its debut. The new permanent show will celebrate how Disney music inspires people around the globe and will feature massive floating set pieces, LED panels and choreographed fountain displays.
