It’s finally here! Making its official debut today, Epcot Forever is be an all-new limited-time spectacle of fireworks, music. lighting, lasers and choreographed special effects kites.
The show, which replaced IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, takes audiences on a journey through the past, present and future of Epcot. Music will be a big part of the show, featuring a collection of songs written for the park’s many attractions.
“Epcot Forever is a celebration of what Epcot has been and what Epcot is going to become,” said Alan Bruun, show director for Disney Parks Live Entertainment in a statement. “Music is the star of the show, and we use songs going back to the very beginnings of Epcot to music in the park today—from attractions, spectaculars, and other shows—and put them into a fireworks spectacular on the lagoon every night. Guests are going to hear music they know and love but in a whole new way.”
If you can’t make it to the park, Disney is hosting a #DinseyParksLIVE stream of the first-ever performance of the show today.
Epcot Forever will be a temporary show as Epcot readies for the debut of HarmonioUS in 2020. It will debut as the largest nighttime spectacular ever created for a Disney park. HarmonioUS will celebrate how the music of Disney inspires people all over the world with a harmonious stream of familiar Disney tunes reinterpreted by a diverse group of artists from around the globe. The nighttime show will feature floating set pieces, custom-built LED panels, choreographed moving fountains, lights, pyrotechnics, lasers and more.
