in Disney, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World


After almost 20 years, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth will be ending its run at Epcot in Summer 2019.

Walt Disney World revealed an all-new nighttime fireworks spectacular will replace IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth after it closes next year, though details on the new show are unknown at this time. This new show joins other previously announced updates coming to Epcot, including a new “Ratatouille“-inspired attraction for World Showcase, a “Guardians of the Galaxy” roller coaster, and a new table-service restaurant near Mission: SPACE.

IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth debuted in October 1999 as part of the Walt Disney World Millennium Celebration. Since then, the three-part fireworks spectacular has delighted guests with the past, present, and future of Earth. During the holidays, the show featured a festive tag, which you can see in our video below.


Epcot will be celebrating the legacy of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth leading up to its retirement next year, so be sure to catch the show one final time before it ends.
