Walt Disney World’s Epcot has had the nighttime spectacular show, Illuminations: Reflections of Earth, for nearly 20 years now. The show dazzles with fireworks and special effects, and is one of the most popular nighttime shows.

Disney recently announced that Illuminations, however, would be coming to an end on September 30, 2019. In it’s place will be Epcot Forever, a brand new show that will launch Epcot into the next phase of the park.

The limited-time show will be a celebration of the past, present and future of Epcot, built around the magical soundtrack guests have come to know and love at the park.

The new show will feature fireworks, lighting, lasers and choreographed, special effects kites, accompanied by a stirring collection of songs that paints a colorful picture of Epcot. Disney Parks Live Entertainment is collaborating on the show with noted conductor and composer Don Harper, who is producing all-new arrangements of classic Epcot tunes to weave into the soundtrack of “Epcot Forever.”

The show will debut on October 1, 2019.
