Last night we shared with you that the final showing of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth at Walt Disney World’s Epcot will be September 30, 2019, and that the show’s temporary replacement, Epcot Forever, will debut on October 1.
And now we have more details about what we can expect in Epcot Forever!
Epcot Forever will revolve around a soundtrack of music that guests have loved at Epcot for years. The familiar tunes are being re-arranged by composer Don Harper, who is fusing the songs into an all-new musical experience.
Alan Bruun, the show director for Disney Parks Live Entertainment, says “Music is the star of the show… going back to the very beginnings of Epcot… music [guests] know and love but in a whole new way.”
Also new: kite technology never before seen at Walt Disney World! These special effects kites are expected to bring unique artwork to the skies over World Showcase Lagoon!
Of course, this won’t be the only entertainment because Epcot Forever will also feature lasers, fireworks, and lighting to accompany the soaring, emotional music.
Many of our readers have expressed mixed emotions: sad to see IllumiNations go but excited to see what’s next. And we’re with you on that!
