With all the renovations coming soon at Epcot, it was expected that the 20-year-old nighttime show would soon be getting a replacement. After years of waiting to see Illuminations’ fate, Thomas Smith, Disney Parks’ Editorial Content Director, has just confirmed the show will be removed.
Illuminations: Reflections of Earth will take the World Showcase Lagoon for the last time in Summer 2019. According to Disney Parks Blog, the entertainment team is already working on the new nighttime experience that is expected to blow us all off our seats!
This change is part of the “multi-year transformation” Epcot is going through. Besides this new show, the park will be debuting new attractions (based on the films “Ratatouille” and “Guardians of the Galaxy”) and restaurant experiences as well.
