On Sept. 30, the nearly 20-year run of IllumiNations will come to an end as the show takes its final bow.
The Disney Parks Live Entertainment team will then prepare for the Oct. 1 debut of “Epcot Forever,” the interim nighttime show that will feature classic Epcot songs, fireworks, lighting, lasers, and choreographed special effects kites.
The official replacement for IllumiNations will debut in 2020, and will feature massive floating set pieces, custom-built LED panels, choreographed fountains, lights, pyrotechnics, and lasers. The yet-unnamed show will celebrate how Disney music inspires people around the world.
IllumiNations has delighted guests since its original debut in October 1999 as part of the Walt Disney World Millennium Celebration. The ending of IllumiNations is part of the overall changes coming to Epcot, which were previously announced at D23 Expo 2017.
