Disney has officially announced that the longtime Epcot nighttime spectacular, Illuminations: Reflections of Earth, will be ending at the end of summer 2019.
Illuminations 25, the first iteration of the show, premiered in 1996 for the 25th anniversary of Walt Disney World. The show highlighted (literally) each of the nations around World Showcase, and featured a soundtrack that integrated attraction music from Future World. Since then, multiple versions have celebrated the millennium and Christmas.
The nighttime spectacular combines lasers, fireworks, a giant globe with video screens, epic narration, and a beautiful score to make for a truly moving show. While it’s a beloved part of an evening in Epcot, I can’t wait to see what Disney brings us next!
